Default Ideas for SD Shooting Exercise in Static Range

I'm talking when at the typical indoor range where you're in a single lane and can't move, can only shoot at your / targets in front of you.

Typically I'll get the target with 6 bullseyes on it and shoot 2 shots each fast as I can, moving from target to target

Other ideas for training in this type of setting?

Do five shot strings using two of your circles. Three shots in lower target followed by two shots to upper target.

Basically three quick shots to the body and two to the head. I call this the stun'em then headshot'em. Just in case they have body armor on.

Can you draw from a holster?

Try the dot drill (youtube it). 2.0" dots on paper 10 yards, 6 rounds each dot. Typically from the holster.

This is a good target to practice on if you have someone else that can shout
out the commands (calling out a number or letter to shoot at). If they don't allow drawing from a holster engage them from the low ready position.

SD shooting is going to require you to process some information - is that guy armed with a gun or just a cell phone? Is that a burglar or my teenager sneaking in?

Couple of simple things I do with my iPhone; I have "Coin Flip" and "Pretty Random" Apps on my phone. If you want to work with two targets at a time, use coin flip and assign one target heads and one tails. If you are using your six circle target, use the random generator app and limit the range of possible numbers. You could limit to 1-6, or even 1-7 or 8 - the numbers that don't have a circle associated become "don't shoot" numbers. Mix up label sequence from visit to visit so you have to think a little more.

I like to shoot with a larger "high center chest" target; maybe 8" circle, 8" x 8" square, or simply a sheet of paper folder in half. I limit the random generator to 1-9. The high center chest target is for any odd number. I draw four other smaller shapes and number them 2, 4, 6, and 8. I make each of those shapes different in size/shape so I have to balance how fast I can shoot vs. precision needed to hit. Even numbers get enough shots for one hit, odd numbers require a random number of shots usually between 2 and 5 (I'm in Cali so stuck with 10 round mags) in a string of fire as fast as I can keep them in the box. Of course, varying the distance of the target changes the speed and precision for all the shapes.

To be safe, I put the phone out in front of me, hit the button and assume a high or low ready. When I'm set I look down at the screen and figure out what I'm supposed to shoot. That way I'm not fumbling around with a phone and gun at the same time, which would probably drive your RSO bananas.

Use your shot timer and go from the low ready to center mass. If the range allows, do double taps, and then mozambique. But always from a shot timer. you talking 3-7 yards?

The best thing is to shoot your nearest USPSA/IDPA/Steel Challenge or local action pistol match.
