My best handgun shot at game was a squirrel at about 90 yards with my scoped slabside Ruger. DON'T ask me to do it again. I'd been hunting quite a bit with it and thought I was hot stuff so I shot at it at about 100 yards and missed. Got a better tree to hold against 10 yards closer and hit the darn thing.

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.

Does that include a rested scoped Ruger competition target pistol? It shoots as well as a rifle when rested. No i'm not claiming that I can shoot it like a rifle-just that it's more accurate than I'll ever be.

No. I was referring to the 9mm claim a couple pages back, I think. . .

The longest consistently successful shots I've taken were at 50 meters. I tried longer distances after reading Skeeter Skelton's "Long Range Handgunning" article (Long Range Handgunning), but it seemed like a waste of ammo. I need to improve a lot before I move my targets further than 50 meters.

I'm going to try small game hunting with my S&W 617 this season, I'll be limiting myself to that distance as a maximum.

I shoot regularly at 100yds with my .22 and 9mm just for fun. I like that your weaknesses easily show at 100.

I tried 300 the next day but couldn't hit it.


Measured, 301 yards 1st shot, 300 yards 2nd shot with a Glock. Sure trying to hit the SOB. I guess he couldn't wait for us to it, so he popped himself. Oh well, no court, and very little taxpayers money wasted.

My results are: 200 yards in the 16x16 plate with 10mm or 7.62x25. Some time fast walking toward a target at 100yards I shoot paper plates. 300yards 24x24 metal plate tc .357. As part of the training you have to shoot human size target from 100 meters, cars from 200 meters. Just in case.
