At Game with a handgun my furthest has been close to 140 yards. With a rifle, I am not really sure what the furthest is at man, but animals Id say about an honest 225 maybe 250 yards.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
210 yards, took a 140lb doe. Biggest deer i ever killed, dropped in her tracks. Nothing to brag about but lots of fun.
Great privilege comes with great responsibility.
not the longest kill shot, but in 1977 I took a coyote out of the freshly bailed hay meadow from the seat of an idling tractor at 100+ yards, unsupported, with an 1893 Win pump with .22 short. I would say that's a long shot relative to the chambering
A couple of years ago I dropped a trotting coyote at a bit over 300 yards from a kneeling position with a Rem 700 22/250. Still most proud of the .22 short "long range kill"
500 meters prone 5.56mm delivered via M16A2 open iron, last time was '89 or '90. My best practical shot; I took a deer at 202 yards (range finder) with my Encore muzzleloader.

Never argue with an idiot - they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with experience.
The .22 Short is really pretty amazing for what it is. Good shot! It wasn't actually an 1890 Winchester pump was it?
Sounds like a shot my dad made a few years ago to "scare" away a feral dog seen roaming down the hill about a hundred yards from the house. He loaded up a Winchester Model 67 rifle with a CB cap, intending to shoot near by the German Shepard sized dog. Accidentally landed the feeble bullet right on the dog which ran in very tight and frantic circle for several revolutions and fell down dead. I'm not sure if he could ever determine where he hit the dog.

Not much of a reason for distance shooting around here. .270 with handloads into the neck of a doe at 110 yards. I'm shooting over a clearcut this year, might be able to stretch that a bit.
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

Voted up to 100 yds. Just with handgun. Maybe I'll take my Savage over/under single-shot .22LR / 20 guage from 40+ years of ownership to the outdoor range someday soon. Enjoyed the accounts of your long shots, all.

yep, it was an 1890 gallery model with octagonal barrel, short only, built pre-1920 I think. I miss that gun, but gve it back to it's previous owner after I nurtured it for over 35 years. Mine was a great shooter for those that could see the knife edged sights.
My .40 carry off a bench, 100 meters, 8" group.
7.62x54 PSL, 4x scope, 400 meters (extent of safe shooting on property) 3" group. Anything under 300m is not any fun anymore.
