Shooter Ready Challenge, May 2023

May 2023 Shooter Ready Challenge

We've been publishing dry fire training and challenge videos since October 2019 to help the average gun carrier take their skills to the next level. This series of videos is called “Shooter Ready Challenge,” and it's entirely free to watch and take advantage of.

Each segment of the Shooter Ready Challenge is sponsored by BarrelBlok and L.A.S.R.

Every month, you get to learn new skills from the host of the Concealed Carry Podcast, Riley Bowman.

We published the May video this week.

This time, the SRC video is called Hard Cover Targets. Hard cover targets, are targets that have portions of the hit zone covered by a ‘no shoot' zone. The ‘no shoot' zones can simulate a threat behind cover, or a ‘friendly' partially covering the threat. In competition, impacts in the no hit zone could count as a miss, or maybe a zero. In the defensive context, rounds impacting the no hit zone could simulate hitting an innocent bystander.

Either way, hard cover targets provide the opportunity to work on many fundamentals, one of which is throttle control.

Make sure to check out LASR software by visiting the Shooter Ready Challenge Page. What's cool about that page is that all the other past challenge videos dating from October 2019 through this month are also available for free.

As a side benefit to taking part in upping your proficiency as a shooter, everyone who takes part gets entered to win a special prize from us. There's no telling what this month's prize is, but we've given away some really cool things, ranging from hearing protection to ammo.

This month's Winner of the drawing is Mike H. from AZ. He won a BarrelBlok like the one often used in the Shooter Ready Challenges. The BarrelBlok is a fantastic tool to add to your dry fire training regime.

And if you weren't sure, dry fire training is one of the best ways you can increase your odds of winning a gunfight, is totally safe as long as you do it with an empty gun, and is something that all the pro-shooters recommend you do.
