Do you want to shoot faster, more accurately, but don't have time to get to the range? Here's a drill you can do each day that will help you improve and it only takes a minute to do it!
It's called the Morning Minute and is the special creation of one of Mike Pannone, head of CTT-Solutions, LLC.
In case you're unfamiliar with who Mike is, let me give you the Cliffs Notes version of his bio:
The dude is legit. Not only was he the member of an elite military unit, he was the member of three of them!
So, what is the Morning Minute? It's a basic....
dry-fire drill you run for 60 seconds right before you walk out the door. Here's how it goes:
1. Put your gun on in the configuration you plan to wear for the day. Make sure the weapon is clear and there is no ammunition present.
2. With the gun holstered, begin your draw from concealment. Draw slowly at first, increasing your speed with each successive draw for 60 seconds.
Now you're ready to head out the door!
The beauty of this drill is two-fold. One, your experience of the drill will vary each day because the way you access and draw the gun will slightly change based on the weight and type of garment you wear.
Second, most of us don't dry-fire enough. If you're pressed for time, this drill should give you at least 10 solid draw strokes each day. Over the course of the year, that's 3,650 draws! And that's just if you're doing the minimum.

Of course, this is just the minimum, but if you're pinched for time, it's better than nothing. I've been running this drill on on the road and it's helped me maintain my skills during my hectic and sporadic travel schedule.
Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
And as always, stay sharp.
