Default Reload par times

I'm looking to improve my consistency and time on pistol reloads, I was wondering what is a good reload par time to strive for? What do you consider "good", "awesome"," and "holy shiznit grand master" times?

1 second is a good baseline for shot-reload-shot time. <0.75 sec = GM.

Maybe something a bit more realistic, how about a local kid

There are two things to think about here. Just pulling the gun, lighting off a round, doing a reload and lighting off another one in under 1 sec looks really cool but more important is getting hits before and after. Dryfire reload practice with a 1 sec par time is good and will develop muscle memory. On the range with live fire use a plate rack at 10 yards. If you can get both hits and the reload done consistently in about 1.00 - 1.25 with aimed shots (not point and pray) that is top level ability.

Switch to Single Stack. You will get lots, and lots of practice reloading.

Another more useful drill is to practice firing a shot then moving and reloading on the way to the next shooting position. You need to get the reload completed in the first step, two steps at the most.

I'm no one special, but at a 6" target at 10 yards from shot-reload-shot from concealment is around 1.7 to 1.9 seconds for me to also get my hits.

While this is a really useful drill, I think you should work on getting all five steps of the reload down first...the manipolations for the mag change should be completely separate from your movement

When in doubt, ALWAYS turn to Pincus.

Especially if you're training for a Dynamic Critical Incident.

This video is also mandatory when practicing reloads, to make sure you can use all/any of your extremities.



Training for USPSA will just get you killed in the real world.

DUH!!
I'm currently working on a method to return the weapon system to battery in the event both arms get shot off during a Dynamic Critical Stress Alarm Reaction Incident. Still working out the details, I'll post a video soon.
