There is plenty of lore surrounding the Mozambique Drill. That’s to be expected with anything that includes both Col. Jeff Cooper and African mercenaries. But, overall, the drill itself is much simpler than its colorful past suggests.

Simply put, the defensive pistol drill involves placing two shots to the chest and one to the head. The above video by Gun Digest author Richard Mann elucidates some of the finer points of the drill, including timing and precision aspects.

If this isn’t a drill that you don’t already do, it definitely should be worked into your routine. As explained in the video, there are some important skills sharpened in this simple bit of practice. And best of all, it can be executed nearly anywhere you go shooting, be it an indoor or outdoor range.
