    .......Ranges that "only" go out to 100 yards.

    The fact is most folks that shoot on public ranges have no business shooting at 100 yards, let alone 200 or beyond.
    Watched a guy shooting 6" + groups with a very well put together Rem700 in .308 and was complaining that the range only went to 100 yards.

    I have heard this many times, people, if you can't shoot at a minimum a one inch group at 100 yards, you really have no business slinging lead out past that.

    Same with pistols. I have had people who need to pass a qualification for work( both security and LE) and could not keep a tight group at 3, 5, or 7 yards. They only wanted to practice at 15, and 25. People, if you can't get 20 shots in a fist sized group at 9 FEET from the target, you are not going to do any better at 45 or 75 feet. You will only do a lot of missing the target completely.

    That is all.

    Let's face it. It's hard to justify shooting the light fixtures and walls at 9 feet. But much easier at 25 yards. So just let gramps destroy your range because he once read an Elmer Keith book.
