    What range do you practice?

    Just curious for CCW purposes only at what range do you practice, draw and shoot. I know that "most" incidents happen within 10 yards, but just wondering what you guys think. Feel free to vote on the poll. Thanks!

    I practice all three but usually about 10 yds.

    No poll shown, but I shoot from about 3 yards out to 40.

    I did not vote based on the choices. I practice all of the above EVERY time I shoot. I have to qualify from all, so it would be dumb to no practice all. Qualifying is no problem for me, can't say the same for the rest of them. There's always someone who has to shoot it twice to qualify.

    Did not vote. Need to have an all-of-the-above choice.

    Normally I shoot from 5 to 10 yards. I will put a few down range to about 20 yards though.

    I practice from 2 feet to 25 yards, mostly shorter ranges because I believe any defensive encounter will most likely be up close and personal.

    From 2 feet, I'm just curious as to what exactly you are practicing. I also practice up close and personal, what are your tactics that close?

    I generally shoot between 10-50 feet as well, a little bit of every distance if I can.

    When practicing keep in mind 21 feet or 7 yards. The distance a BG can strike in under 3 seconds.

    The closest target at the outdoor range where I have a membership is 30 ft. That's what I shoot most of the time, for "self defense" practice. Sometimes at 75 ft. which is the next target out.

    For closer practice (10-20 ft.) I go to an indoor pay range, but not very often (very expensive).
