7 yards. . . I do practice from that distance, but only for (very) rapid fire/reloading practice other wise it just doesn't turn my crank. My usual distance for pistols/snubbies is 10-15 yards. Revolvers 4" and up (Mountain guns) 25 yards.
OK. I'll be completely honest and admit that I've never got an off handed hit on anything (game or inanimate object) past 60 yards. However,
I could probably count on one hand the number of times I've tried and the berm I use for handguns only goes out to 50 yards. SO
the best result I've gotten from 50 yards was on a 18" diameter steel plate using a Blackhawk .44mag, 225 grain Hornady Leverevolution in which I landed 4 of 6 rounds. This was after about 6 or 7 cylinders of practice/adjustment and a perfect hold propped on a timber and I haven't tried since.
Now, there's now way you're ever going to convince me that a 100 yard shot can be made on an object with ANY
pistol. Revolver with scope, long barrel, good loads yes sometimes, pistol NO! You can show me a video of someone making a shot and I'll tell you it's fabricated.
