Snake Drill

[ Submitted by David Kenik of Armed Response. ]

Set up four sets of cover in a row, in front of each other, approximately five feet apart, with a target ten feet in front of the cover.

Now continue the drill in the same manner…backward!

Now continue the drill in the same manner…backward!

Starting behind the most rearward cover, the drill is to walk serpentine weaving around the cover positions, shooting the target as it becomes visible on each side.

After reaching the front of the last cover, continue the drill in the same manner backward, serpentine weaving around the cover positions back to the starting position.

When reloading, continue to the nearest cover, and reload behind cover, then continue. As you walk, the gun should be pointed down until it’s time to shoot.

The drill encompasses shooting on the move: backward and forward, use of peripheral vision, use of cover for reloading, and movement of the gun from the ground to the target.
