Interesting stress-inducing training concept

    I came across this on Todd G's Pistol-Training.com blog site.

    I have always tried to come up with ways to better simulate the stress of competition in my training. Here is one great idea.

    During a recent training session, the A-zone on the headshot area of an IDPA target was surrounded by $20 bills. During the stage, you had to hit the head twice. But, if you shot a $20 bill, you had to replace it from your own pocket. Shot bills were put into a Fail Pail, and at the end of the training session all the money was given to the star performer of the group. It amounted to about $700!

    Sorry, I couldn't link to a picture very well, but there is one at the link above.

    20 push-ups immediately before shooting drill, works best for me... I will take the money though!

    Since I don't believe you can ever produce any real stress when there is no fear of a paper target harming you, we do an incredible amount of force on force using air softs, and other training tools. Recently this is what we started using to cause "stress". Not enough to really hurt you but far from pleasant. Also makes people damn hesitant to stay on the ground. Training needs to be recent, relevant, and realistic.
