    This is something most do not want to post for some reason....but I will give you what I have ...keep in mind it may not be exactly what your instructor(s) do....

    3 Yards (9')
    1 round fired from the ready position in 3 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 5 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 5 seconds

    1 round fired from the presentation position in 5 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 7 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 7 seconds


    5 Yards (15')
    1 round fired from the ready position in 3 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 5 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 5 seconds

    1 round fired from the presentation position in 5 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 7 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 7 seconds


    7 Yards (21')
    1 round fired from the ready position in 4 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 6 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 6 seconds

    1 round fired from the presentation position in 6 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 8 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 8 seconds


    10 Yards (30')
    1 round fired from the ready position in 4 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 6 seconds
    2 round fired from the ready position in 6 seconds

    1 round fired from the presentation position in 6 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 8 seconds
    2 round fired from the presentation position in 8 seconds


    12 Yards (36')
    5 round fired from the presentation position in12 seconds

    15 Yards (45')
    5 round fired from the presentation position in15 seconds

    Now my instructor, gave us one round as fast as we could
    one round as long as we wanted (30 seconds) shows you how long 30 seconds really is.
    etc.

    Most I have seen will tell you NO SINGLE ACTION, or will tell you if it is all you have, but I rather you not.
    some may not care.

    I do not recommend it. you miss a lot of the understanding shooting a single action...

    such as rapid fire, control timing.

    Subject to interpretation...

    Single action to me means shooting a single action revolver where you have to cock the hammer every time you fire.
    Actually, when I took the practical part of the test.... the first 30 or forty rounds I fired single action with the revolver I was using... then I got tired and decided it really didn't matter anyway. Just for kicks, here's my final target... I really wish I could get a do over... you can tell where I switched to double action...

    We had the same discussion in my class about 1911s first shot and single action revolvers.
    I didn't carry 1911's fully cocked and had another person in the class that had a single action revolver.

    It is all up to the instructor, mine was of the intent use your gun the way it was designed.
    He didn't care about calibers or actions (but he preferred his 38 Police Special), just as long as you were safe and knew how to operate and shoot. He was the one that recommended SC Grassroots.

    I think South Carolina should do away with the live fire requirement in the training course. Let the instructor decide if they want to substitute some other method such as airgun shooting, dryfire exercises, blank fire training, beamhit or other laser simulated training, or airsoft training.

    When i took my course one could use any handgun caliber and 50 rounds from different distances. Very easy my mother in law passed having only shot a handgun once before.

    What 340mopar posted is similar to what I had to do. Others have said the instructor had trouble scoring the target when the holes ran together. In my case the instructer saw the one big hole in the middle with no holes around it, said "50" and went on.

    He did say no head shots in case there was a lawsuit involving the use of the firearm. His point was if we ever were sued they could call the entire class as witnesses and you don't want anyone to say that you were the guy that shot the target in the head.

    He did let two people use his firearm since they had weapons problems - one was what looked like an old copy of a Beretta and the other was a - get this - .44 mag ruger blackhawk with an extra .38 Caliber Cylinder fitted. I had a .22 Ruger with me in case my GP let me down, which it never did until some @%%#$&# stole it.

    :P

  11. Our instructor counted the number of holes out side the target and subtracted from 50. He did not count all of the holes. :)
