25 feet is only 4 feet longer than 7 yards. Long legged tall guy with some moves can get to you at that distance within 3 steps. But, I would say 25 feet is at the outer range of defense shooting. I have my own range, so I set the target and take 3 large steps, run some ammo there. I shoot more as I move closer.

Every so often, I move back and take note of the holdover.
