    Drill of the Week – Plate Transitions

    Your front sight should be very sharp and focused. The target will be a blur, but the paper plate should still easily stand out. Shift your eyes to the next target before moving your gun.

Our focus for this drill is the magazine change, but don't let that get in the way of keeping your hits during the drill.
