Drill of the Week 1-10

Drill of the Week videos cover many varied defensive firearms topics. Each video will show a drill or series of drills for you to work on in live or dry fire. Each page will have a corresponding Drill Set-up Guide, to help you conduct these drills at your range.

Ensure that whenever you engage in live fire training, that you obey DMT’s Rules of Safety and the rules of conduct at your local range.
