Patrick McNamara spent twenty-two years in the United States Army in a myriad of special operations units. While serving as his Unit’s Marksmanship NCO, he developed his own marksmanship club with NRA, CMP, and USPSA affiliations.

3x3x3 Transition Drill

Set up an IPSC target at 10 yards. With pistol holstered and rifle at low ready, engage with three rounds, reload the rifle without command and reengage with three more rounds, transition to pistol and engage with three rounds.

For drill purposes, a run only counts with all A zone hits.

For match use, use Time Plus scoring and add a minor penalty for all non-A hits, major penalty for misses. Or, add 0.5 seconds for C zone, 1.5 seconds for D zone and 5 seconds for a complete miss.
