Finally, the perfect forum for something I've always wanted to express: as a forewarning - this is not meant as a personal attack towards any of my fellow shooting enthusiasts, but it is a pet peeve of mine. I get so tired of people posting about the "accuracy" of their handgun and showing off a target with a nice one-ragged hole, almost always fired at, at furthest, 21 feet (just 7 little yards). Excepting a VERY small handgun in the vein of an S&W J-Frame or Ruger LCP, getting one-ragged hole at 7 yards requires minimal effort and is something most any handgun is capable of. I realize these are fired because 21 feet is considered a "defense distance", something like 90-98% of civilian confrontations involving firearms occur within this distance, I've been told. Nevertheless, anyone can look 25 YARDS ahead of them and realize that it's still a very dangerous distance, isn't it therefore prudent to practice out to this or an even further distance? (I myself demand a certain level of accuracy from a firearm at 25 yards or I don't carry it, but this isn't meant to be a thread about my carry habits/attitudes). An added benefit of shooting (and showing targets) at 25 yards is it's a lot easier to gauge the accuracy of a firearm than an easy-as-pie 21 feet.
