All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

“That post on needing to practice was interesting, but com’mon it wasn’t very useful. I’ve read you on blogs saying you need to drill. How about some drills.”

O.K. then. First, you need to understand that for me shooting is a hobby. I like to hunt fish and hike in wild country. I carry a handgun. I shoot in a pistol league, but I’m not the greatest shooter there is. I’ve seen good shooters, I’m OK . Assuming you know gun and range safety here’s a drill designed to sharpen your skills against wolves.

Description: Your friends invited you on a Snipe hunt. You were placed with a trash bag to holdopen and given a baseball bat to bash the Snipe over the head. Being smarter than the average bear, you brought your CCW; just in case these frisky Snipe's get out of hand. While your friends have gone off to find a Snipe and herd it towards you, you hear low growls and begin to see a pack of wild dogs who have targeted you for an easy meal.

String 1: Shooter starts holding a bag and baseball bat. at sound of buzzer engages targets free-style -- 2 shots per target. Rounds: 8 Rounds Minimum Notes: Have shooter hold bag and baseball bat while voices from the gallery make howling noises. The front dog is the Alpha male. Because these are wild dogs the others will not flee when the Alpha male is shot.

*Course of fire from the IDPA

Using dog sized cardboard cutouts this drill makes good practice for a wild animal encounter. I like to mix in small poppers to make it more interesting. In real life you would have been bit, if it takes you more than 3 or 4 seconds to score hits on all the targets.
