Free targets and drills to use at your indoor range.
At some point, paying a couple of bucks for basic circles or random zombie targets gets old. I know it did for me.
I’m not a competitive shooter, by any means, but I do want to train to a higher standard. And I want the ability to do it anywhere my work travel takes me. I use a Pact Club Timer 3 for par times and have managed to dial down the sensitivity enough to be able to use it properly at my own indoor range.
I started out by using T.Rex Arms’ Training Aids but wanted a more general target that I could use with a variety of different drills. So I made my own.
Oh, and before you ask, I originally added the QR code so I could quickly AirPrint these from my phone if I needed more before a range trip. Maybe you’ll find that to be useful too.
Here’s the generic target:
The center rectangle is roughly the size of an IPSC target. If you’re trying to change things up, you can place two of these side by side. Staple a 3″x5″ index card just above this sheet to make things tougher.
And the drills (including par times) I currently use:
To be completely transparent, I have no idea of my “standards” are good enough for you. What I do know is that not having a time-based goal makes it tough to judge whether you’re improving. TLDR: the clock doesn’t lie.
If you’ve found other free drills and standards to be useful, please email me and I’ll post them here.
