The Fastest 2x2x2 Drill on the Planet

Christian Lowe | KitUp!

Well, it might not be…but it sure is one of the fastest bits of shooting I’ve ever seen.

I ran across this video this weekend to pick up some tips on shooting drills and was blown away at how fast Kyle Lamb can push lead through these targets.

Kit Up! readers might remember my attempt at this drill last year at ITI and it was pathetic (especially since my boss beat me as well).

But Lamb has the money quote in this one where he says “taking out three dudes in less than two seconds isn’t bad.”

So tell us what your fastest time has been in this (or a similar) rifle drill in the comments.

    jski4w: Right on, Brother!! You fight like you train. We spend much more time on shoot/don't shoot drills than we do putting rounds downrage that there should be no question about the purpose of this type of training. Speed and accuracy SAVES LIVES!!! And for those of you that don't think that the perps are out there practicing stuff like this, you might be in for a very rude awakening someday, and they won't care about whether or not they should pull the trigger. It's my job to be faster, since it gets me home safe to my family!!

    First off, great vid. Like you said, probably not the fastest but it was still damn fast. Secondly I would like to comment to the people who always seem to pop up in police related forums who say " police should be training to be thinkers not killers" or some variation of that. Police officers are not these mindless robots that go out killing people just for the sake of doing it. Frankly it is dreaded by most officers, it is taking someone else's life. The reason that we train for this situation so vigorously is because it is the "worst case scenario" and is a situation where lives are on the line. Officers train rigorously in shoot/no-shoot drills, legal updates and force continuums to hone our split second decisions on when and who to shoot. However when that "oh s#!t" situation arises there is no time to stop, assess, weigh the options, square off your stance, wink your eye, aim and shoot like people think there should be. Officers barely have enough time to un-holster and move towards cover, so its for this reason that we train to shoot fast and accurate. That's what saves good people's lives. Furthermore, most every profession does the same thing: train for disaster. Firefighters and EMT's train for mass casualty situations like major crashes and explosions, major businesses have protocols and training for their own disasters as well such as a product line failure or economic fluctuation. You don't see people going around saying "damn, those firefighters go around training for school bus crashes all the time, it's like all they want is school buses to crash." They train because when the situation happens you need to know what to do and do it quick. So please, if you weren't there and haven't been there before dont try to pretend you have. Thanks. :)

    Operator training is by and large superior to police training because the soldier faces a well armed and organized threat that is also well trained and conditioned. This requires the operator to have better weapons technology, better conditioning, and better training then the enemy. It's not likely an officer would face 3 armed opponents at close proximity, but it would be better to have the knowledge and skills necessary to neutralize multiple threats. IMO these speed drills could only increase an officers chance of survival, despite the deviation from department protocol.

    Kyle Lamb is not a police officer, he was part of the world's most elite soldiers, aka Delta. maybe that will shed some light on the drill.

    I'm fairly sure those guys didn't miss. It'd be really hard to miss at that range.

    This shows an important lesson. I've always heard that "Practice makes Perfect" but in reality the saying needs to be that "Perfect Practice makes Perfect". If you practice wrong you very seldom improve to perfection, I liked him talking about the prefect movements for the perfection. It's obvious he shoots often and enjoys what he is doing. Great Video for me.
