Favorite drills with steel targets and preferred shape? Login/Join

Is there a favorite drill that works better on steel than paper? Any particular shape that helps?

I was doing some draw and one shot drills on a 10” plate at 12 yards and that worked ok. I wonder if the 10” is too big. I don’t want to build bad habits. I see Shoot Steel offers an A zone sized steel target and I’m thinking I’ll get a couple of those.

We do this same 1 shot thing at 10 yds or so 8 & 10" plates. A A-zone shaped piece of steel works nicely, or the 33% silhouette steel at 15 yds. I also cut the A-zone out of the USPSA target, start at seven yds with 2 shots, move back until I suck, then start over. For me it's about reducing draw times, indexing the dot, and throwing in a mag change in the shoot 1, reload, shoot one. Mix it up, shoot 100 rnds, and move on to something else.

Just back up to 15 or 20 yards.

Or back up to 25yds, draw shoot 3 from concealment with a 3 second par time. Common drill I do.
