    ! usually practice between 3 and 25 yards but also do some longer range practice out to 100yd. I used to shoot IMSA but my eye sight left.

    I figure that the best I'll be able to perform in real life is less well than I can perform in practice, so I do most of my draw and fire practice at 10 to 15 yards, figuring that in real life I'd draw and fire in the 5 to 10 yard range.

    I figure that anything short of 5 yards is in the hand-to-hand combat range (which CAN include the use of a gun), and needs a different kind of practice.

    I shoot at an outdoor range that only offers like 3, 7 & 20 yds.
    I usually shoot the longest range as I figure if I can get better at longer ranges, I should be able to hit close range with ease...maybe this is a messed up way of thinking, any comments???

    I voted 5-9yds, but I usually try to send at least a few rounds down range out to about 15 yds just to try to stay somewhat sharp at those ranges, but the majority of my practice is usually around 7 yds.

    A cop used his Glock 10mm to take out a guy with a scoped rifle at 70 yds - that's still self defense.

    I find I usually start with most mags at the 10 mark and just a few out to 25yds. I just saw a video on youtube from a guy that makes me want to change that up a little now though. I CC the G26 and never really thought about practicing at the longer ranges, but I'll give it a go next time out.

    All of the above and then some.

    Point shooting PB to 10 yards

    Half aimed 10-25 yards.

    Focused/concentrated aim beyond 25 yards.

    I picked the middle, but am working on improving grouping at 25yds which is the extent of the range where I shoot.

    I focus on 7-15yds. I think it would be difficult to justify shooting someone at 25yds or farther for self defense in most situations.
