Maybe I'm the only one here who has practiced this before.   Actually I was doing about 3' away, but an instructor told me to get within 1" of the wall.     I didn't share back then because I thought I was probably the last to know about this drill.

I think it helps to have a very small mark (dot, pencil mark, nail hole, blimish) on the wall so you can actually see your sight move  (or not) in relation to it.

I learned a version of this with a 1911 that works pretty good.  Using a pencil wrapped in tape that will slip into the bore (two sections taped up one at the breech and the other at the muzzle) aim at a dot on the piece of paper taped to the wall/door, get a good sight picture and press the trigger.  Repeat 10-15 times and you will see a witness mark for each press of the trigger representing how you are doing at maintaining the sight picture.  Works great with a 1911 but I have an XDM so like someone before mentioned I have to break my grip and rack the slide (a little concerned I'll develop a training scar with that too).

More training videos please, like reloading on the move, drawing from a holster (competition style and defensive) and shooting drills  ;D

Just FYI, you can dry fire this drill and improve your trigger control by placing a quarter on your front sight. 

If you have issues with trigger control, and don't we all, you will discover them by adding this trick.

With revolvers you can place the quarter on the top rib and see how many shots (how quickly) you can shoot DA while not loosing the quarter.

If the gun is laser sighted, you can watch how much it wobbles just trying to hold it on target prior to trigger pull. 

Shows all the small twists and turns that happen when pulling the trigger too.


Really defines your 'wobble zone'.

About "wobble".
When I was at Parris Island, they told us that in the standing off hand position you were not going to hold the rifle perfectly still as in prone, or sitting.
The thing to do was to control the movement into a pattern resembling a figure "8" lying on it's side, squeezing the trigger so the shot broke as the sights crossed the bulls eye .
The same method should be effective with a laser.

Another method that works when the heart rate is up, which increases the wobble factor, is to introduce controlled movement in a lateral motion across the target and break the shot as the sights cross the center...... much like shooting skeet. I saw Phil Strader discussing it in an interview once.
