Diamonds are a girl’s best friend with this take on the 5x5x5 drill. During the cowboy era, a common practice of exhibition shooters and pistoleros was shooting a playing card to demonstrate one’s skills.
Several instructors use this drill as a way to assess students, and students get to keep the card autographed by the instructor as a commemorative souvenir.
The drill is 5 shots at 5 yards in 5 seconds onto a 3.5×5.5 playing card. All shots must be inside the black card outline.
The drill can be shot from low ready, or a holster (and concealment) for an additional challenge.
Facilitators can sell to students for up to $1 each.
