About 50-60 yards is my maximum effective range

about 25-30 yards with my revolver and about 10-15 for my semi-auto pistols.

i would really like to have a revolver with at least an 8" barrel in 357 Mag. or 44 Mag. to stretch out to about 75-100 yards just for fun.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

With my MKII -22LR-scoped, I place on a 8" pattern at 100 yards.

But I don't think that's what the topic was about.

Depends on the firearm..... .40 Max shot is 30 yds. That I am comfortable with but could probably be on the paper at 50.

With my heritage rough rider .22. I am consistent at 35-40 range....but could probably hit the paper at 60....really love this firearm.

25 yds consistently and in no rush.

. I'm pretty good with a handgun, though I don't really know the range, because I just shoot in the backyard and in fields, a rifle on the other hand... I suck with

I can actually shoot more accurately with my G19, 1911 and the beretta I had than I ever have with any rifle

I'm cross dominant (left eye, right handed) so I believe that may be why.

For whatever reason I don't shoot too well with peep sights.

My home range is currently 25 yards and 100 yards from the bench/line.
Most of the time, guests and I post at 25 yards, but we will do the 100 yard from time to time.
I like dinging the 12" Steel, but I have more hits on the E Silhouette Steel using the .22lr pistols.

I'll send a few .45acp down range, but hate holding high.
