Default First time shooting a pistol

I think I did alright. Borrowed @`s new pistol. 9mm FNS9C. 2nd time being at a range.

I still enjoy shooting the .22 rifle long range more though.

Oh and fuck shotguns. Unless you need to take down a bear...the kickback is ridiculous on a slug.

That was at 5 yards but he did fine at 10 yards too. Not a bad shot... He had good instruction..

I've been to gat guns twice with friends and I find that shooting at 25 yards is hard for me . When I brought it back to half i was more accurate , but still somewhat inconsistent .

I never understood shooting a pistol at 25 yards. Being proficient with follow up shots at 7 yards is more effective for a real world situation.

At 25 yards, whatever you're shooting at isn't really a threat yet, at least in an urban environment.

Also, at 25 yards, you should be using a rifle. A pistol is plan b

Agree.

I normally practice with 5 inch targets, so at 25 yards I can't even see the thing with my old eyes.

Too bad you can't carry a rifle around in public

if you're shooting someone at 25 yards, be prepared for a lawsuit. if someone is that distance, i wouldn't really consider them a threat and i would deploy other tactics (escaping)

also agree with my pistol only being a weapon to get me to my rifle especially at 25 yards.

If someone pulled and drew down on you... At 25yrds... You'd run? Not this guy.

It's not that far fetched. Think active shooter scenario. And again, out in public, you don't get to have a rifle when you're seated in a movie theater - for example.

depending on the scenario/location, most definitely.

obviously we both know that every case is different. if im in an open field, yes, im drawing and advancing forward. if im in town/in a store, ill definitely seek cover.
