Big fan of the dot torture drill, haven't done it in a while. Watched the Haley Venti video last week and thought it looked like an excellent exercise. Hoping to try it out in the near future.

I ran the TDA Dot Torture again today.  I used my IPSC shot timer app on my phone to time the drill.  I recorded the time for each string of fire and totaled it at the end.  I didn't race through the drill but I did push myself to run through the drill as fast as I was comfortable.  I didn't clean the targets but I did significantly better than the first time running the drill.

97BD:  Score 46, Time 280.69 seconds
SP01:  Score 48, Time 285.73 seconds

My SP01 made me a liar today.  I was shooting it really well today.  My only misses with the SP01 were on the weak hand only string.  I had a couple near misses, the bullets broke the target dot so I counted them.  During the drill with the 97BD I had one shot let off before I was totally ready.  I also had another that I lost focus and tried to force the shot.  I was able to call both as flyers right away.  It's amazing how mental this sport is, you can lose focus and it all can go south instantly.

97BD Target:


SP01 Target:

Great performance, tdogg! Slow and steady does it. Clean the target, then increase speed and/or distance. My hat's off to you getting such results in DA/SA modes.

So I ran my TSO on the Dot Torture drill today.  I haven't run the Dot Torture drill in ~6 months.  My results were acceptable.  I tried to run too fast on most dots and my score showed it.

TSO:  Score 38, Time 142.34

This was my first run through a standard Dot torture drill (SAO).  Up to this point I've been running the TDA drill.



Cheers,
Toby

Got out to practice today and ran another Dot Torture drill with my TSO:



Shaved off over 20 seconds off my last run with the TSO and kept the same score.

TSO Score: 38, Time: 120.38

I wasn't seeing the front sight well today.  I was shooting in the shade of trees and it was varying light.  It was messing with my vision.  This gun is superbly accurate and makes up for my excuses.

Cheers,
Toby

I have these targets in red in a PDF file. I took the regular black and white and colored it in. I don't have anywhere to host the files but anyone wants to post it here I would be happy to email the files to them. just send me a PM with your email address.

PM sent.  I'd be happy to post it.

Great drill, I start every range session with the TDA version.  It tests your ability to mentally focus as much as your physical marksmanship skills.  I have cleaned it at 3 yards with Kadet kit, but not yet with 9 mm.
