Absolutely nothing to be ashamed of for a 5, 7, 8 or 10 shot group.
In my experience, that is good shooting considering offhand, ball ammo, fixed sights, etc.
Think of it this way...you could have 3 shots touching edge to edge and be pert near an inch measured center to center already.
eta: my reference to shame above considers the shooter to be at least 7 yards from the target
