One of my runs at 7 yards, with pullover concealment garment, slide lock reload, Glock 19.
When formulating your range drills, make each shot count. A simple standard drill that I really like is the 1+1 Reload Drill. The standard drill is at 7 yards on either a USPSA or IDPA target, but nearly anything will do. Draw and fire one round, perform a slide lock reload, and fire another round. With just two rounds expended per repetition, you get a draw, a reload, and a total of two presentations to target.
I also run this same drill with my SIRT, using a timer set with a start/stop par time beep. Some of my baseline par times are:
-Open top holster/pouches, slide forward reload: 3.0 seconds
-Open top holster/pouches, slide lock reload: 3.5 seconds
-Concealment (pull over garment): 4.0 seconds
You can add .25-.50 for variations with duty flap pouches, duty retention holsters, front opening concealment, or other gear variations. Scale the time limit according to your skill level, and make sure you are getting 2 A zone hits with every rep.
Lately I have been working on my concealment draw with a pullover garment, which I tend to neglect. When working with pullover garments, consider if you want to use 1 hand or 2 hands for the draw. I prefer 1 hand, in order to keep a hand free for close quarters considerations.
During the training phase of this drill, go slow and make all of your movements clean. Practice the training phase on the timer as well, so that you know what “slow” and “fast” really mean on the clock. Work this diligently in dry practice before you hit the range, most of what you need from this drill can be learned well without ammo.
