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.
