For those wanting to know how the pro's do it, and hone your skills, here's the USMC Combat Marksmanship Program for rifle and pistol. It includes courses of fire in the Appendices: MARINE CORPS ORDER 3574.2K (2007) http://community.marines.mil/news/publications/Documents/MCO 3574.2K.pdf Note that most of the courses of fire are either timed and/or round limited. Which means you shouldn't run these by yourself. Have somebody there to time and score, and critique your performance. You'll need some elbow room, and plenty of ammo.
