I don't compete, I don't play gun games. I just shoot.

Although you are not competing at this point, there are some things you can do to make your shooting a bit more entertaining. 

 

For example, get a timer and see how quickly you can put 5/10 rounds on target.  Once you can do this consistently in a given amount of time, set the timer to 'par time' and try to make the same shots in .5 to 1 sec quicker.  Effectively this is a form of a bill drill, however you're only 'competing' with yourself.  Another practice exercise I do is set 2-3 paper plates on the target rack and then see how quickly I can double tap all 3, while keeping my shots near the center.

 

At the end of the day, it's about going out and having fun with your new STI.

I'm not new to timed drills, I have all that covered. :)

And yes, I'm a huge believer in timed drills. For me, and I'm convinced most others, the only way to improve is to let the timer tell the truth. It never lies or deceives. :)

I have 3 STI guns, 2 were brand spanking new and 1 had 150 rounds through it from a local guy I know. Cleaned them, oiled them well, and shot matches typically around 175-200. Cleaned it and started the cycle over after every match. I have 3 reliable STI guns. I use SLIP 2000 and wet it down good on the barrel and rails.
