Pistol Training, what to train.......

So I am working at really raising my training level, I wanted to see if anyone has a good list of drills and/or skills to train.

I know the basics, dry fire and drawing from the holster, I am looking for some more detailed ideas.

Here are a few that i have been doing, I would like to get a comprehensive list if possible.

-press outs focus on taking up the slack in the trigger
-press outs focus on repeatable frontsight consistency
-snap shooting drill
-malfunction drills
-drawing from the holster focusing on each step slow
-drawing from the holster fast
-drawing and shooting from retention
-trigger finger control as you move around cover
-reloading drills
-SHO all of the drills
-WHO all of the drills
-trigger reset drill
-thinking about the last shot you never take (get the sight picture after the shot)

clearly not a complete list, so anyone have a better one of anything to add?
