What are YOUR acceptable groups?
Do you have standards that you accept for groups?

At 25 yards, free style, mine are
1.5" for revolver,
2.5" for a customized semi-auto,
4" for stock semi-auto,
12" for pocket pistol.

This is what I use to judge handguns by.

How about you?

How many bullets in your group?

When I started shooting handguns a year ago, I was very happy to keep a couple mags worth on an 8" bullseye target at 7 yards. Now if I'm not making a jagged hole with my .45, I'm not happy. I don't bother measuring but I know when I'm shooting well and when I'm not. With my 22/45 I am happy keeping a mag worth inside of a 2" circle.

All of my pistol shooting so far has been offhand. I've never had one of my handguns on a rest. I will be shortly with my .44mag. I have hopes of hunting deer with it next year.

Pistol or .22 = one minute of beer can and I'm happy. 2.5 m.o.a. for a deer rifle.

I normally use 5 rounds. Sorry.

18"x18" minute of goblin whichever is smaller.

Im not a target shooter with handguns. Handguns to me are self defense firearms. Im not a good enough shot with a pistol to determine the accuracy differences from one to the next.

While i can pull off some really small groups when i try its just not my goal for handguns

Staying in the black at 10', I don't get a lot of time to practice and I don't use it for home defense so I don't mind.

acceptable groups would depend on the firearm,

my STAG AR15 SHTF rifle - 4" spread at 100yds for a 30rd mag
my AR458SOCOM - clover leafs at 100yds
my Beretta Px4 Storm - full mag in the red at 10yds

my AR10 - kill shot every time

The best group I shoot that particular day is acceptable,all the others are substandard lol

With my GLOCK at 25 yards if I can cover my shots with a loosely balled fist is cool. I do try to shoot tighter groups than that though.

Anything on the paper is good enough for me
