I always practice at the longest range I can shoot. I used to qualify with a revolver beginning at 50 yards, and the dreaded "possible" course began at 60 yards, which usually meant shooting from the parking lot!

When I would qualify agents in Indian Country I would put clay pigeons on the 100 yard berm if there was one, and keep everyone there until they were all busted by pistol fire.

Now that I am a semi-retired gentlemen of leisure I mostly shoot at the local indoor range. Today there was a guy shooting a full sized pistol at six feet. 2 whole yards. He shot a basketball sized group and pronounced it good enough.

I don't know all the details of the above shooting. The shot guy apparently had a rifle with no bolt and was perforated once for his troubles. I'm sure there is more to the story, but it was a pretty decent shot.
