Since there was only a short window of time, I set up just one USPSA target at 21 feet, that's Drill #1 in Refinement and Repetition. I've been consistently hitting a .7 second draw on this drill in dry fire, but was curious to see how that translated live fire. That would be the real test to see how much the dry fire was helping.
Finally getting to try the same drill in live fire was enlightening. After getting warmed up I was consistently getting times of 1.02-1.06 seconds. By the end of my 100 round session I had managed a .99 three times in a row, and even got one off in .96.
Before I knew it, the sun was getting low and the range was getting dark. One benefit of doing the same drill over and over from the same spot is that all my brass is lying in the same area. It's easy to pick up in the fading light.
Getting to the range is always fun, and when I shoot well and validate the time I've spent in practice, it's even better. I can't match that performance every draw (YET) but considering I rarely got under 2 seconds a month ago, I'm very, very happy with those times. But, no time to celebrate, there's more work to be done.
