How is your accuracy at 75 yards with the 9mm?

I'm required to shoot from a barricade at 25 yds. for part of my qualification. I regularly practice out to 100 yds. with my handguns. Accuracy sucks but as long as i'm close, i'm ok with that.

Default At what distance to shoot at?

It dosent hurt at all to be able to shoot at 25 plus yards with a pistol but anything much further then that I think maybe we should be looking for a long gun. As for the rifle I took a stroll around the property today and paced things off. It didnt matter if it was from the front door across the road and hayfield to the wood line or from the back of the house to the pond I was looking at a max range of a 150 yds. Most of us I bet can tear the center out of a target off hand at 50 yds. But truthfully how often do you shoot off hand at 150 yds plus standing off hand. When you go into the prone you loose a lot of visibilty to possible targets. Just my 2 cents and am curious to see what other input members have.
I would start with a preposition on the left, go about 15 yards, then end with another preposition on the right.

I shoot handgun 45ACP and 357 mag. out to 25 yards but mostly at 7-10 yards. AR Rifle out to 300 yards, but mostly from 7-100. I focus mostly on avg grouping at a reasonable pace not pinpoint accuracy

Handguns out to 200m, every so often theres the chance to try a bit further. During the week it is mostly between 15yards and 50yards though.

Rifles out to 1000yards, but occasionally get to increase that greatly.

I admit to knowing very little so please be tolerant of my question.

My thinking is if I can hit a target at a distance I will also be able to hit a target much closer. When I target shoot, I like to shoot with the target out as far as I can put it (in indoor 25 foot range is the only range I have found so far) thinking if I have accuracy there I'll also have accuracy at 10 feet. Show me the error of my thinking, please.

I have my own targets at 12, 25, 50, 100 and 200 yards.
Pistols I use the 12 and 25 yard targets.
Rifles I use the 50 - 200 yard targets.

Hey Larry, speak up like ya got a pair! Almost had to put my glasses on to read your post.

Pistols, 25 yds or closer, but mostly 7-15 yds, sometimes some 50 yarders, but only if shooting life-sized steel silhouette targets. Rifles 25-200 yds. Any distance farther than 200 yds, I will wait for them to come to me, or I will go to them.
