New Drill: IDPA 100

This drill was inspired by the 99 Drill, initially created by JodyH.  The 99 Drill is a 99 round practice session that allows you to work on multiple shots, draws, reloads, and provides enough reps of each for it to actually be valuable.  I wanted to create a similar drill for dedicated IDPA shooters that could use an IDPA Practice Target and be performed in a single lane without having to use multiple targets.  Thus, the IDPA 100.

The IDPA 100 is a 100 round

The IDPA 100 is a 100 round drill broken down in to three strings, which are fired at 7 and 10 yards.  Par times are used to help the shooter develop speed.  The drill should be shot from concealment.

  • 7 yards: Draw and fire 2 shots to the -0 body section and 1 shot to the head.  The classic IDPA Mozambique Drill.  Repeat for a total of 10 reps (30 rounds).  Par time: 2.50 seconds.  Advanced par time: 2.00 seconds.
  • 7 yards: Draw and fire two shots to the head box, reload and fire 2 shots to the body -0.  Repeat for a total of 10 reps (40 rounds).  Basic par time: 4.50 seconds.  Advance par time: 4.00 seconds
  • 10 yards: Draw and fire 2 shots to the -0 body.  Repeat for a total of 10 reps (20 rounds).  Basic par time: 2.25 seconds.  Advanced par: 2.00 seconds.
  • 10 yards: draw and fire 2 shots to the -0 body using your strong hand only.  Repeat for a total of 5 reps (10 rounds).  Basic par time: 3.00 seconds.  Advanced par time: 2.50 seconds.
Scoring is simple and is based on the observation that when IDPA calls for a head shot on a target, the penalty for a miss is usually much harsher than a miss on a body.  A perfect score on the drill is a zero.  Misses to the body count as 1 point against you, and misses to the head count as 5 points against you.  Shots after the the par time count as 5 points against you.
 
 
Feel free to shoot this drill, use the par times and provide feedback.  
 
The “base” par times are based around what I could comfortably shoot the drill in, and the “advanced” par times are based on where I had to push myself to get hits.  The drill is pretty easy to scale as well; if you find yourself smoking the advanced par times you can cut them back by 0.25 seconds until they become challenging again.  If all you have is 100 rounds and you want to practice some IDPA skills, give the IDPA 100 a shot.

Charlie.  Are the reloads

Charlie.  Are the reloads with retention?  Mark Hicks

Doesn't specify... BUT,

Doesn't specify... BUT, looking at the par times, I'd say you're at slide-lock. Mebbe an Expert or Master-Blaster, could do a Reload with Retention, or Tac-Reload, with four rounds on target in 4.5s... but I dunnoooo.

To paraphrase Bruce Lee... Take what you can use and discard the rest.

This is a pretty good idea for some training drills.
