I shoot better than my wife with all my guns except my 32 H&R magnum. she will (& has) made me look like I'd never held a gun before when shooting that. I guess I should've bought that for her & not myself.....hmm....her birthday is coming up.....

A good shot shoots off-hand and standing, not benched nor with any other kind of rest.

That should be made clear as one of the target criteria.

Benched is meaningless, except to tell us how the gun itself shoots.

Many of the targets shown in this thread are obviously benched shooting -- that's how "the gun" shoots -- without you.

You need to stand without a rest to test how "you" shoot.

And you need to keep practicing from time to time or else you will lose what you have gained.

Well,Let's see some of your expert marksmanship!

Shoobee,You're so full of it,that it isn't funny. I'll shoot against you anyway you want,just to show you that I can shoot good.
I shoot rifles off a rest to do load testing.That's the only way to find the best loads for any weapon.

I'll be practicing tomorrow for the Calif LTC range exam.

The hardest part is the single handed shooting part with each hand alone.

When I shoot to impress (myself or anyone else), it's right handed two-handed. That's fairly easy now -- hold 'em and squeeze 'em.

The test however is timed rapid fire from the holster in 8 seconds for 5 rounds at a time. Not so easy to do.

Bragging or impressing others no longer interests me. I have a test I need to get ready for.

why would you need to practice for something when you claim at all the experiance in shooting you have had over the years?

i know i wouldn't need to practice for something i am quite capable of doing since i do it on a regular basis to begin with.

Shoobee, I see you have never shot the "El Capitan", 5 rounds in 8 seconds would put you in 20th place, way too long. Try 6 rounds per mag with a mag change between 2 stages, three targets per stage, two shots per target and do that in under 10 seconds (12 shots), you start by the way with your back to the targets. When you can do that consistently then I'll say you can shoot.



Axxe55, I was wondering why the snow melted so fast, it was all the hot air around here (LOL).

1 shot per second sounds about right for a target 5 yards away. Sure. No problem with that. Mag change -- no problem -- easy in fact.

The first 5 rounds in the Calif LTC test are exactly that, 5 rounds in 5 seconds. Plus you need to draw, which takes 1/2 to 1 second. There is no time to waste.

The next 5 are at 7 yards, and they give you 8 seconds from now on. Again you need to draw from your CCW holster.

Then the next 5 are at 10 yards, again in 8 seconds, again with a draw.

And the next 5 are at 15 yards, again in 8 seconds, again with a draw.

You are having to draw 4 times -- quite a bit more difficult than a simple mag change.

Then 10 rounds at 10 yards one handed, then another 10 rounds one handed with the other hand -- no time limit on these.

Total 40 rounds. No chance to warm up. No chance to do it over.

80% must be within the NRA 8 ring.

The pressure is on. And you need to squeeze quickly not jerk or you will miss the 8 ring.

With the pressure on, and having to wait 6 months to test again, it is no easy test.

There is a little pressure in a shooting contest, but a whole lot more in a test, and astronomically more so in a real situation on the street.

You practice for the test. Maybe also a really good idea to shoot the day before too.
