The class began to push the students with speed shooting out of the holster. On the buzzer, students were instructed to draw and fire 2 rounds from 7 yard line. This was performed with 2 students going head-to-head battling to see who was faster. Each student performed 5 times with total of 10 rounds fired. With maximum score of 100 (2 rd x 5 x 10 pts), student's target was scored by the ring. Only the accuracy portion was scored for this advanced pistol shooting drill. Mike Dozier took the highest score of 94/100 total ring score.
The speed was further increased with "Bill Drill" from 7 yard line. Students were instructed to fire 6 rounds under 2 seconds and only the 10 ring accuracy counted. Anything out added 1 second per round to the final time. The calculate the factor to the final score the final time was multiplied by 10 - which was then subtracted from 100.
Paul Luna was the fastest even with 1 miss with total of 100 - (3.46 x 10) = 65.40 points. This number was then rounded up to the next highest number to be incorporated into the student's final score.

Congratulation to Dave Shaw in taking the TOP SHOT! Paul owes you a gun case.
Malfunction was one of the elements we were looking to identify in the class. 1911's are known to have multiple malfunctions and thus often thought of as unreliable. Although 60% of the class experienced some sort of malfunction, Oscar, Chris Weir & Matthew Kanin & Dave Shaw's 1911 demonstrated ZERO malfunction with almost 250 rounds fired in 4 hours. They now belong to the ZERO MALF CLUB.
Everyone demonstrated an sufficient advanced pistol shooting skills without any safety violation.
