Rapid shot drill is advantageous for any shooter because the ability to control recoil and maintain that muzzle to snap back down into its original orientation is critical to drive a target down. However, a rapid shot drill does not only tax your grip and stance, but further trigger control can be an issue. This drill shows using a SIRT pistol initially where a trigger control issues can be identified by the shooter. In this particular drill Mike Hughes uses a very heavy 11 to 12–pound trigger break to diagnose any trigger mechanic deficiencies. For a right-handed shooter the most common trigger mechanic deficiency is a 9:00 sweep (the gun sweeping to the left). A certain gun model such as an MP, that have a trigger break a little bit further rearward with respect to the grip, there may be a 3:00 sweep. At any rate, we want to strive to push the trigger straight back. Secondly, grip and stance. You can see the grip and stance video on the NLT shooting youtube channel. But basically a grip and getting low enough where you’re not getting rocked back is critical with live fire. Whenever you shoot live fire it is not a bad idea to sneak in a rapid shot drill if the range you shoot at permits it. Be aware of what the front site looks like as it snaps back down into the notch. Try to keep your trigger mechanics fluidly where you do not have any hiccups and you can keep a smooth rhythm.
