I vary from 3 yds to 20 yds, mostly 7 to 10 yds. I carry for defense and figure that would be the range (hopefully) that I need to make center mass & head shots. This is indoors, outdoors and when I was still pistol hunting in NH, 50 yds with a Super Blackhawk using 300 gr XTP handloads. Most deer hunting there is scrub hunting so no real long range work where I hunted.

A bit of target grouping in the 7-10yd range, along with lots of knock-down target plinking at 15-25yds. I shoot a variety of calibers, but mostly 9mm.

I will use maybe 5% every other sessions, to work on long distance and maximum short distance accuracy..
+1 there. Very similar training myself.

3-20 yards, SD

10-40 yards starting one month before
hunting season. This gets expensive.

Bullets are like trucks the bigger they are the more they cost.

O.O

2-4 Yards...?

Heck! I can whi... on 'em at that range.

I practice at 25 yards. If I can hit the target at 25 yards and hold a decent group, hitting a target at 2-4 yards will be no problem...

As far as shooting silhouettes, I use the inverted T method of shooting, 2 rounds center of body and 1 round to the head. For the exact same reason the FBI shot this way. The round to the head is meant to incapacite.

Dot drill- 2-3 yards

Failure drill- 3-5 yards

Adrenaline (or ammo dump) drill-5-7 yards

The rest of the day is usually seeing first hand how bad I really am with a rifle...25-100 yards....not like I'm hitting much at 100, but I still try!!

If it's fight shooting you're asking about, be good at 2 and 4 meters.......laugh at that and you'll be dead in your first PD encounter.
