Default Is there a book of drills??

Is there a book of shooting drills out there? Either for pistol or rifle or both? Got a small handful of drills I like to practice when out shooting but I thought it would be nice to have a book to keep in my range bag that details a variety of different drills. I have looked for such a book but didn't find anything. Yes I know I can look up a host of different drills on the internet but again it would be nice to have a book to keep in the range bag that I can pull out while I'm in the desert or mountains shooting and set up some different scenarios/drills. Thanks.

If you go on Amazon and search under firearms drills or tactical firearms training, you will find several.

every 3gn classifier stage.
every uspsa classifier.

any book that has dry fire drills but do them live fire. most drills that are done with a pistol can be adapted to rifle quite easily as well.

Green Eyes, Black Rifle.
Dry Fire Reloaded.

and get a shot timer as well. use objective rather than subjective data.

Not really. At least from my searches, most are DVD's and I'm looking for a book. And most of the books that turn up focus more on fundamentals of shooting and/or tactics. I'm just looking for a collection of different drills. I'm on M4carbine.net as well (should have checked there first) and found this: http://progunfighter.com/wp-content/...-Sept-2015.pdf I'll probably just print that and make my own "book".

Good idea using 3GN and USPSA classifiers. I was able to find the PDF for the USPSA ones from their website. Any idea where I can find the 3GN ones?

Also, just found this....looks interesting: http://www.larue.com/tacost-card-sets-tricon

So I ended up making my own "book of drills" in a Rite in the Rain notepad that I keep in my range bag now. I used the progunfighter.com link that Don the savage posted as well as the "Favorite Drills" thread on M4Carbine.net. Here are the drills that I have in that notepad so far and have been practicing for the last several months:

MNQ Drill
V-TAC 1-5 Drill
V-TAC Transition Drill
Mozambique Drill
Hostage Drill
Redback One Operator Readiness Test
Box Drill
El Presidente Drill
Sicario Drill

Here's me running the 1-5 drill and the Mozambique drill. Fun times!

Or you can use your imagination to design a drill for the specific skill you wish to work on.

Take a look at Pat McNamara's TAPS book.

I salute him for his service, but I cannot support Pat McNamara.
