As some of you may know, I am an avid shooter and work with tactical law enforcement (e.g., SWAT/RRT, etc) and other groups regarding performance, health, fitness, and so on. If you want to try excellent test of your basic skills with a handgun, try the F.A.S.T. (Fundamentals, Accuracy, & Speed Test) drill designed by ToddG at Pistol-Training.com. Below is my video of my FAST scores and a few range drills also.
The FAST test can be downloaded:
I can usually do it under 7 seconds, but still have not broken that 6 second mark.
You will need a shot timer, but anyone who is actually serious about being proficient with a handgun as a fighting/defensive tool, already owns one..
I had faster runs, but my best cold time with all rnds on target was 6.85. Not gonna win any coin with that time! I’m rusty I must say, and felt rusty as hell on this first day of outdoor range time. It’s amazing how fast the skills go…I’ll try to get it under 6 seconds is the goal once I get my mojo back up.
I hope some of you try it and post your times!
