That is most of my range time. Before I change targets I'll stick a shoot n see on it and shoot 10 rounds while using the sights.
    Exactly same routine with snubbies. I practice everyday at home in garage range with S&W 317 (.22 LR) and weekly with 642 and 640 at range. The only time I shoot beyond 21 feet is with 686 or Glock 23 at range.

    At least once a week I shoot 20-25 rounds at 8" target at 10 feet as fast as I can in strings of five (panic shoot!) I can usually hold all shots within 4" circle. May not be benchrest perfect but it would blow the center of a BGs chest out! I really feel that a real SD shootout would mimic the "panic shoot", close and fast.

    The range I frequent doesn't allow drawing from a holster or rapid fire. I have only started practicing point shooting but am limited to double taps. I would go to another range, however the customer service at mine is excellent. Not so much at others in the area.

    Yeah, that's me too. When I qualified for CCW, I hit the sheet of paper, but had to change my glasses so I could see the sights and did well. I stood and held my arm out the same way I was taught, like the old posters - except no round brimmed hat. My instructor said he hasn't seen anybody shoot in that style in many years. Said I did pretty good also, especially when I told him I hadn't shot the Commander for several years. Now I'm starting over and will learn the CAR system or something close to it.
