Shotgun Drill


Recommended Posts

Found this:


It works like this: 5 shooters on the line facing 5 targets (they were steel in

this case). Everyone loads (either 5 or 3 or 1 or whatever). The guy on the left

shoots one round at the first target and everyone does the same one after the

other. Until the 5th guy shoots and shouts "Out" (or whatever). You repeat until

all five targets are engaged. The focus of the drill is to focus the student on

reloading under pressure.




Don't know if this is what you're referring to.

On the Rolling Thunder Drill, 6 guys address 5 steel targets.


Shooter #1 fires at target #1. Then shooter #2 shoots target #1. Then shooter 3, 4, 5, and 6. Six hollers, "Out!!"


Then shooter #1 shoots targets 1 and 2. Then shooter #2 does the same, all the way down the line.


Upon hearing #6 yell "Out!", shooter #1 shoots 1, 2, and 3, and so on.


The problem is that you have to reload the shotgun before it is your turn to shoot again. And towards the end, you are shooting 5 or 6 shells at a time.



FYI - The Rolling Thunder Drill is how Thunder Ranch got its name.
