THE 42 Drill or Make a statement Drill!



The 42 Drill is a timed cadence and accuracy drill meant to push your limits in all three of those skills, speed, rhythm (trigger manipulation) and accuracy. It is designed as an advanced drill and as such, you should expect to be frustrated by it.

There are two ways to shoot the 42:

The first is to shoot it as stated on the target:

From 42 feet (14 yards) away from target
On timer "beep" Draw!
Shoot 4 shots inside of top circle
Shoot 2 shots inside of your choice of left or right small circle
Shoot 1 shot inside center diamond
Slide locks back, reload with fresh magazine
Shoot 4 shots inside of bottom circle
Shoot 2 shots inside of remaining (fresh, or unshot) left or right small circle

Time to score is 14 seconds or less, all hits breaking the line of any circle or the diamond count.
