    For closer practice (10-20 ft.) I go to an indoor pay range, but not very often (very expensive).
    Just curious, how expensive? The one in my town is 12.00/hr

    3 - 7 yards...that works just fine, and any further away...I'm running.

    I can not agree more with you on that, at least till I get old and the knees go out, or when/if I am with my family then I will stay and fight.

    The average individual can close 21 feet before a trained gunman can draw and fire...I practice at 7 yards.

    Any further, I'll have plenty of time. Any closer, and Ilet them get too close in the first place...my bad :)

    Ranges

    I try to vary the ranges within all of the listed ranges. I did not vote because there is not an "all of the above" choice. I might not vary it that far every time, but as I have a home range I can practice quite easily and often. I can go from 0 out too 100 yards with handguns. I can also use the range for rifles.
    Kel-Tec P-3at, Taurus PT-908, Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 26, Kel-Tec SUB-2000 9mm (Glock 17 mag compatible),Kel-Tec PF-9, Ruger SP-101 2¼ barrel hammerless, Maverick Arms 88 Security 8-shot 12 gauge, Marlin 336W .30-30 Win., Rossi Model 92 SRC .357 Mag.

    Back when the Sabertooth Tiger was still running around, the FBI statistics showed that most handgun engagements occurred between 7-10 feet. I don’t know what it is today, but I still practice my two-round burst to that standard. Everything else is extra.

    Thats a damn good deal! Wish we had something like that around here.

    I'm no marksman, so I chose 5-9 with the occasional 10-14. Anything past about 15 feet for me gets blurry, gotta get some new glasses.

    +1 .... except for the running part...I'd have to stand my ground and beat em to death with my empty weapon!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    All ranges out to 35 yds I kinda would like to stay ahead of the competition if you know what I mean

    BTW if you can hit it a little farther then you WILL hit it closer

    I voted 5-9yds. This is for my draw and shoot range time. If I'm just shooting without draw from concealment, it's usually 10-15yds. State CCW class was 3, 5, 7yds. Be as practical and statistical as you want to in your practice. Whatever you feel necessary, and comfortable with. Shooting at the closer ranges will help one get used to point shooting more than longer distances and aligning the sights IMO. But practice is practice, and that's always good.

    Why train for a tie? - and no you won't. While you may or may not get a shot off, that doesn't mean you've stopped the threat.

    Mostly 7 yds, then 15, 50 and out to 100.
