For softer bricks this is fine, regular drill will do it, just takes a bit longer.
But for poured concrete or very hard bricks, this does not work
My techs have used hammer drills for a number of years to set relay racks and battery stands. I introduced my son to hammer drills when it was necessary to anchor a gun safe in his garage. We tried the concrete bit with a regular drill, didn't go any where after several minutes. Rented a hammer drill and job was done in about 3 minutes. Hammer drills are the way to go.
