Most Important Item — Have fun doing this. Most of us will never be Grand Masters or 3 Gun Nation Season Champs. If it is a bore than change it up. Everything above is borrowed from Steve’s book, with his permission, and can be altered to suit the shooters needs. Push yourself, or don’t. Do the drills you suck at twice as much or half as much. The point here is to get off the couch and start cleaning up your technique or shake off the rust before the season kicks off. When you are ready to go a step further pick up Steve’s book and take it to the next level.

Last thing… This is a first attempt at something like this and we need your feedback. Comments, questions and critiques are always welcome. FB, Youtube, call, email, or whatever your preferred social poison. Let us know what we are doing right and what we are doing wrong.

Good luck with the challenge and God Bless!
