    Agreed. Just for giggles but how far are you from the target to get them groups?

    Eh, 1.5" at 5 yards is still a torso hit at 50 :) .

    But, it also depends on how quickly you were shooting, and from what position. Two 1.5" double-taps within 1 second is good even from 3 years :) .

    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. :p

    Enjoy!



    eta: my reference to shame above considers the shooter to be at least 7 yards from the target

    I saw Annie Oakley do that at the County Fair on the back of a horse with a guy named Cody at the reigns a few years back.
