Exactly and ditto, and I only bother shooting from a Max distance of 5-7 yards.

Do you use 338 Lapua? Seems like an appropriate caliber for those distances.

25 yards they need to be within 2" no matter the pistol or I"ll look at what I'm, doing wrong or getting rid of the gun. I shoot some pistols out to 50 yards and I want to be able to hit a 50 round ammo box pretty consistently. more than 2-3 fliers and I'm pretty upset.

Oh..Rifles I don't shoot much over 100 yards as I don't have a whole lot of room to get much more safely. Depending on the rifle I will want to have no trouble placing on a 4"x4" square where I want it to be. Except with 22's, I give myself a little more room with most of them.

I don't understand how this is even remotely funny. I looked up the 338 and it looks like a 30 cal rifle cartridge. Who shots rifles at 5-7 yards? Please do explain the significance of the statement so I can enjoy in the humor as well....

Sarcasm. The
.338 LaPua is an extremely powerful, 1500 meter sniper rifle cartridge.

I guess I still don't understand why it was an adequate response, but to each their own. I'm really starting to despise gun nuts.
