    I usually shoot from 25, 15 and about 10, but mainly 25. I recently shot from 50 yards, and was not pleased by my performance.

    7-25 yards, sometimes 50 yards, Did some at 75 yards out in the desert, hitting a 2 foot target. Mostly 7-25 yards though.

    Mostly 7-15 yds. If your shooting at someone past that distance your probably getting arrested. They say almost all self defense shots are inside 15 feet from what i have read.

    I usually practice from 5-15 yards. Most of the time it's within combat distance.

    From 18" to 30 yards... Yes that's 18 inches. Gotta practice point shooting while blocking an attack!!

    I go to 5 different ranges and none will let you shoot any closer than 5 yds.

    Not many ranges in the U.P. of Michigan that care one way or the other... Of course someone else might actually have to be at the range when I'm there... :)

    With the pistols I have now, 25 yards & closer. In the mid 1980's I used to shoot steel silhouette matches with a S&W Model 29-3, 10 5/8 barrel, adjustable rear sight for windage, & a 4 position adjustable front sight for pre set elevations. 50,100,150, & 200 yards. Hunting pistols. I wish I'd kept that gun, great shooter. Here's a pic of one like it. You rotated the wheel on the front sight for 50 yd increases, or reductions.

    For work qualifications are at 7, 15 and 25 yards with a handgun, for a carbine its 5, 25, 50, and 100 yards.

    On my own I shoot anything from point blank out to 50 yards with a handgun, and with a rifle I shoot as far out as I can at the given location.
