    Yeah, but not as much as most people think.

    4-5' at 200 yards is usually still not even holding at the top of the berm.

    As far as I am concerned there is no better practice for trigger control, sight alignment, and shot picture.

    Honestly do you wanna know what I found to the best practice for trigger control, sight alignment, shot picture and grip? Shooting a small DAO pistol with a 8.5lbs trigger. Once you get good with that thing, every other handgun presents no effort or challenge at all.
    I shot the hell out of my Kel-Tec P11 until I was really damn good with it. Now everything else, especially the Walther PPS I finally traded it in for after 15 years or so, is a piece of cake.

    I usually practice at about 10-15 yards. But I use my own reactive targets which is 12”x18”. I can usually hit the bullseye for the first 10 rounds which is the typical ccw magazine capacity.after 10 my eyes may be little bit tired and I need a 2 second break.

    Having a good shooting gun helps too.

    With handguns I don't always measure, I practice mostly at what I think is a practical distance and then change up distances.

    1-2 feet. After a few beers, I back away from the urinal slightly.
