So after a few months of bullseye I’ve made good progress. Breaking 800 with the .45 and averaging 850 with the .22. I would like to build on that through winter and not go dormant. Any training ideas for an indoor 25 yard range to sustain me until spring? I have a few in the area. I will probably favor training with the .22 due to cost. I mainly lose points at 50yard slow fire and rapid. I tend to finish rapid in 5-6 seconds and am rushing it. I tend to have 2-3 shots that I snatch pretty badly.

if you use the reduced 25 yard target for slow fire I don't think you will lose much it is challenging

Work on drills to get your timing down.  Then work on slowfire by using the B16 target or the B38 target.  Them rings on the B38 are small.

Slow fire: Keep the trigger smooth. Abort shots that don't feel right from the start. If it looks like it's getting away from you and you're fighting to make it work then put the gun down. 

Rapid fire: Recover directly and quickly. keep the trigger press going. Bang, recover, press and press through it. Don't make it a quick mash down once you see the dot is where you want it. Make it a press and straight back and through. Almost a finesse sort of. If you feel like you're running out of time you're worrying over something thats not as important as learning how to make good shots. The time limit is a distraction you allow to into your head. Timing will come. Learn how to make the shots count.

Dry Fire and Visualization.

Ed Hall's Progressive Drill as described in this post is excellent for developing consistency in RF.

There is always room for air pistol. Find a way to incorporate the ever so humbling air pistol and your slow fire score will improve.

Thanks everyone for the advice and ideas. I’m going to order B16 targets for slow fire. For sustained fire I think I just need more practice. I easily get 5 good shots off on each stage of timed so I just need to know what my time is to get 5 good shots off in rapid and then train to get the off quicker. Appreciate the input. It’s time to set goals for 2019!
