Some of you may be familiar with the Drills and Standards pages at http://www.kuci.uci.edu/~dany/firearms/all_drills.html . This page has not been updated in years (apparently) and attempts to contact the author have failed.

New and updated information is availible on a number of these drills and I have decided to update this information, preserving all original crediting including the original author.

I am currently in the process of adding the original content to my personal site (albeit in a better and easier to use structure). You can see what is currently up and availible at http://www.waynefrazee.com/personal.php/hg_bg_drillnotes

I am right now interested in formatting feedback for the drills and feedback on the viability and usefulness of the project. I am talking with local recruiting offices for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and marines to get specific information on pistol qualification to add to the standards section.

Is there any other drills or standards that you would like to see added?

Would you find an updated page of this nature useful?

Remember that this is a non-commercial venture, just me, my computer, a couple of databases, and my webspace trying to provide an informational resource... dont be too hard on it ;)

[UPDATE]
Downloadable targets added in Post Script format thanks to Rec.gun list.
Resources section added with structure in place for point shooting, targets, grips and stances, and basic gunsmith information guides. Will be adding the above features as I can.

In discussion with Surefire about a possible deal which would allow me to make non-commercial use of some of thier past text and photos from a past issue of Combat Tactics to illustrate some light-related grips.

i looked over the drills and dont recall seeing any kind of drawing drill

basic, safe drawing is a must know...

you could probably add to the "drawing drills"

reholstering
draw from cover
draw from SOB (crossdraw ect. all other drawing options)

thats all i can think of.



nice site, BTW... it will be intersting when you get all the drill up.... let me know if you need help.

Wayne,

This is an outstanding resource and I too have bookmarked it. Many thanks for all your hard work! 8)

It would be great if the individual topics could be downloaded in a Word or Text format.

Again, thanks for doing this.

Anyone know of some fairly standardized training drills to cover this technique?

Im working on getting some of the Army Marksmanship Unit handgun training guides right now or at least some excerpts thereof. I hear they have some good , generally applicable drills that they use to train with the M9 (GI modified 1911).

Yes RAY, Thanks for the hardwork and dedication. This information is so helpful that I instruct new shooters to your sight. Oh yeah I have it booked marked as well.

I am going to go through each drill and break them down into "Teaches" "Requires" "Drill" and "Variations".

Some drills currently have this, many dont. Hopefully this will also make them easier to read and to follow.

It would be helpful if you guys could point me in the direction of printable (or just images) of specific standardized targets.

All the currently posted drills and standards provided in Dan Young's original resource are now listed and credited.

Now working on:
1) Obtaining and providing printable targets.
2) Researching and adding standards for Army M9 qualification and pistol qualification for other branches.
3) Adding drill breakdowns to add standardized structure for each drill and to provide a certain level of readability.
4) Researching and adding drawing drills. I may add some of my own drill postings from previous inquiries on the subject.
5) Researching and adding reload drills.

The only thing that I would reccommend adding would be a section on the different methods of gripping a pistol and also shooting stances. With me being a novice shooter, a proper grip and stance was one of the first questions I had when learning how to shoot.

There have been a few very good threads with links and pictures that do a good job of this, but it would be nice to have one singular page that all this information is compiled at.

I think you have an excellent site going so far and I will be referring to it often as I finally get out to the range with my XD-SC for the first time.

Site looks great!

There is some really excellent info at this site:

http://www.pointshooting.com/index.htm

I don't know if you can incorporate any of the information, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Thanks for your efforts. I am sure they well benefit many of us and your hard work is appreciated.


Peace,
D.

I think I will try. A drill on point shooting with a small principle blurb would be a good thing, me thinks.
