    To qualify for concealed carry? That depends on the state in which you are applying. AZ doesn't require a shooting qualification anymore. AZ used to require 5 shots at 5yrds and 5 at 10 yrds all in center mass of a silhouette iirc. Now you can apply if you've taken hunter safety.

    In FL, it was about 5-7 yds and you could use as little as 10 rounds to the whole box. Placement was secondary. I think the instructor just wanted to hear a bunch of "bangs".

    I have not had to qualify since 1992.

    In KY we had to fire 20 rounds at 20 feet into a full size silhouette target and 11 out of 20 had to be inside the silhouette. No one in my class failed but I was surprised to see that some people did actually have shots land outside the silhouette. I shot the smallest group in the class as the youngest member of the class and while my group was good, I don't think it was THAT good.

    In Ohio, successful completion of the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course is required to receive certification to apply for a Concealed Handgun License. For the shooting portion of the course, each student is required to place three five-round shot groups within a nine-inch circle from a range of about fifteen feet from both bench rest and standing two-handed shooting positions.

    For armed security watches on a ship carrying a Beretta M-9, we have to qualify twice a year. One is the handgun qualification course and the other is the practical weapons course using movement and cover. For the HQC, we have to score at least a 180 to pass and shoot from 5, 15 and 25 yds. using mainly 2 handed shooting (including weak hand shooting, 2 handed). Besides standing, we also do it from a kneeling position. I think a total of 60 rds. is fired.
