I am in the process of developing a handgun proficiency test for 18-21 year olds that would be so stringent that the state would allow them to obtain a CCW permit.
I have the course lesson plan, I teach that, but I'm taking a survey of current CCW holders (or just those who carry) to determine the practicality of my final exam.
Here's the final.
Time: 1 Minute
Distance: 10 yards
Number of Shots: 20 with 1 mag change.
Number of targets: 2 (D-1, black X ring)
Shooter stands at low ready. At the signal, fire ten shots in one target, reload, fire ten shots at second target.
All shots must impact the 4" X-ring.
This must be done with one of a short list of 9x19 pistol.
G-17/19, XD, FN, H&K, Sig, basically, any of the mid to full size 9's capable holding 10 or more rounds in magazine.
The question; How many of you can pass this test?
I've camped out at several shooting ranges over the past few months and when someone comes to shoot I've offered to provide one box of ammo and targets for anyone willing to demonstrate these proficiencies. I have to date heard 154 who claimed to be able to do this. The actual stats were very disappointing. My 15 & 17 grand kids can do it plus only 4 others of those who chose to shoot, 89 in total. The questions were not always well received and many were quite rude but I consider all such who don't shoot to lack the skill set needed to pass.
Any takers? Anyone willing to demonstrate this skill set? Yes you can have a practice run. The reload blows folks away so that may have to go but now it's in.
Thanks for your time.
