War Hogg Self Eval drill can help you improve your shooting skills and elevate your performance on the range. 

Method: Engage two targets while conducting speed magazine changes using either your rifle or carbine.

-Shooting two magazines of six rounds each.

If using a pistol, shoot from five yards, while with a rifle, shoot from seven yards.

Targets should be secured in opposite corners of the shooting platform.

The drill requires engaging target 1 with three shots, then engaging target 2 with three shots conducting a speedy magazine change, and then repeat 3 shoots in target 1 and 3 shoots in target 2.

Applying Real-World Training Principles:

To maximize the effectiveness of your training, it's important to treat the flat range like a real-life scenario. Prioritize engaging the closer or larger target first, transition to the smaller target, perform a quick magazine change, and then re-engage the large target and then smaller target again. This sequence replicates decision-making and engagement dynamics you may encounter in real-world situations.

During the War Hogg Self Eval, gather 12 essential data points using a professional timer. These data points can be documented in your copy of The Firearms Training Notebook, serving as a valuable reference for future training sessions.
