This is not a complex shooting drill that has a lot of moving parts, and is in fact pretty basic, but it is a great way to keep a shooter mentally engaged when shooting catch and shoot shots, and it will provide some variation to simply just catching and shooting over and over again without some kind of competitive factor involved.
It is important that shooters stay mentally engaged when they are shooting so that they don't allow themselves practice bad habits.So shooting drills like this are great because they give the shooter a competition rather than just mindlessly shooting.
