Yep I saw that same 'challenge' between he and Jerry Miculcek on Shooting USA last summer.

To the OP,
Short barrel/short frame handguns though are largely purposed for ease of concealment and pocketability.
With a shorter barrel length thus sight radius decreases resulting in increased effort to aim with accuracy and by that increased variance in accuracy.
Short barrel/compact guns are not inherently inaccurate. It's just that it's more difficult for an individual shooter to be more accurate with them as opposed to that of having a longer sight radius.
Exact same is the case with all matter of shotguns regardless of barrel length and rifles as well.
It's basic physics.

I, and persons I shoot with, regularly shoot at 100-200 yard targets. It really is fun, gives you lots of practice & really shows your bad habits!!

Ever wonder why massacres never happen at a gun range??

One of the guys I used to shoot PPC with used to win matches shooting his 2 1/2" custom revolver up against other guys with 6" custom revolvers.

And some guns match a person's "sweet spot" of balance, ergonomics, proportions, recoil. Of a dozen pistols I have shot and owned over the pat 17yrs, I have had one like that, after getting used to it, it was by far the most accurate gun in my hands that I have ever used. (Think: "idiot savant" accurate. Go figure.)

200 yards is a blast with a pistol. Even better is a newbie that does it for the first time.

The only pistol I have that is limited to 25 yards for accuracy is my Elsie Pea. Love them long range targets. My favorite range is 200 yards. Not going to pretend that I'm good enough to hit it every time but when I do hit the gong, it's a thrill. I go for grouping. It's sure shows a jerked trigger!

Watching close, as he is shooting at the 80 yard gong, I think I can see the bullets in the air before they hit the gong, not all of them, but some I see. You do also see the bullets after hitting the gong. Any one else see it????

Great shooting...impressive, I'd say that he has himself well defended in any WalMart parking lot.
