Adding the "Running Box" to your range training
By Brian C. Hartman
We’re all intimately aware of the challenges to keep training realistic, applicable, and affordable while operating within the physical confines and limitations of our shooting facilities.
Here at the New York Tactical Officers Association, we’re big fans of a drill that that can be performed on virtually any simple square range, and allow operators to push themselves with a dizzying number of variations. We call it the Running Box.
Start with a single target center range. Then at approximately four to five meters away place two barrels or cones on line plus two more at around the ten-meter line creating a symmetrical box centered on the exposed face of the threat.
