RUNENATION COLD START
“You’re only as good as your last cold start.”-Teddy
What exactly is a “cold start?” In reality, it’s any drill that you decide to do as soon as you show up to the range that has a definable time standard and can measure your performance. No warm ups, no dry-runs…just posting up the target, jam your mags and get after it. It’s all too easy to gain a false sense of security when you do a drill five times in a row to get it “right.” Outside of the confines of your range, there is no “bad run.” It’s either you perform to the high performance standard you’ve practiced, or face the dire consequences.
The Runenation Cold Start is a low round-count drill that focuses on low/high probability targets, focal shift, reloading, recoil management and can be easily modified to enhance your cognitive processing abilities.
This can be utilized with both a pistol or a carbine. The pistol is started at the 3 meter line and the carbine at the 5 meter line. The pistol starts in the holster and rifle starts in the ready position of your choosing. The par time for pistol is 12 seconds and 18 seconds for carbine. A perfect run is 16 total rounds.
