    The F.A.S.T. Challenge is a pistol shooting challenge. Here is the target. You can download the official target and print it out on 8.5×11″ paper.

    The challenge is this:

    Range: 7 yards
    Target: 3×5 card (head), 8″ plate (body)
    Start position: weapon concealed or in duty condition with all holster retention devices active; shooter facing downrange in relaxed stance with arms down at sides
    Rounds fired: 6

    Drill begins from the holster, pistol loaded with exactly two rounds. On the buzzer:

    1. draw
    2. fire two rounds at the 3×5 box
    3. perform a slidelock reload
    4. fire four rounds at the 8″ circle

    This challenge is a basic part of every pistol-training.com class. In order to get the challenge coin, you must perform the drill in the class. You get the best 2 out of 3 tries. Each string must be under 5 seconds without missing. If you miss then you incur penalties and that pretty much pushes you out of contention for the coin.

    Here is a video of David Sevigny performing the drill with the fastest time of 3.57 secs.
