I never think in terms of Groups because I'm not a Target Shooter. I practice Self Defense Shooting all the time and I consider good shooting for myself is hitting Center Mass at the required self defense distance all the time. That's it!

Finally, someone that understands fight shooting!

IMHO, any distance > 30 feet isn't self defense, it's hunting.

"Multiple traumas to multiple systems."

"Drop the blood pressure, drop the target."


Like I tell my daughter (as she shoots my pants off) "Anywhere inside the Coke bottle."

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Now THAT made me laugh.

I think we are talking about target shooting when the op mentions "groups".

Good defensive shooters should be able to do the 10/10/10 drill.

10yds,10shots,10 seconds without missing a paper plate.

When I practice CCW draws and training I stick to double tap practice and point shooting.
