anywhere from 7 to 15 yards the last few times at the range. It also depends on the particular guns I take with me that day. I have not been there in over 6 mos. Just so happens that is changing starting Monday. Tomorrow morning I am going to go to an indoor range. I am taking my Solo and My Ultra Carry II . I plan shooting anywhere from 7 to ten yards. Those two guns are going to be my CC guns while I am at home. Do to the changes in the cultural climate these days and me losing an appendage back in Jan. I feel more vulnerable than I ever have. So I have done a lot of studying on just how I could best defend myself in and outside my house. I feel I have a lot to learn in this area. I will be asking a lot more questions in this area of thought. DGM1962 I bet you thought I was just going to give the simple answer in numbers of feet or yards.

Most self-defense confrontations happen within 10 yards. For my retirement qualifications, we shoot from 3 yards, 7 yards, and 10 yards to qualify to carry.

Practice at the distances you feel you may have to deal with and make sure you are competent with them. That way, if the stress situation arises, you'll do well as you revert to what you have trained doing.

I also shoot from 7-15 yards and with a few of my guns I will shoot a little further from time to time. The outdoor range I go to has hanging targets at 30 yards so I'll take a few shots at them. I couldn't see if I hit a paper target at that range but I can see the hanging targets move when they are hit.

I practice at 3 to 10 yards for self defense and out to 25 yards for fun. At 25 yards you should practice running.

I start at about 10 feet and by the time the magazine is empty, the bouncy thing is maybe 15 yards away.

For handguns, it depends...for defensive practice, I'll go from 10 feet to 20 feet. If I'm testing out a snake load (no...real snakes where I keep a 38 revolver in the tractor/Ranger), I'll go from 3 feet to 8 feet. For fun, I'll go out to about 30 feet. Divide by 3 to get your yardage...

1 foot to ten yards. 1 foot on full size target. Shoot from the side close to body, practice chest and pelvis. (Yes pelvis will put them down) all distances out to 10 yards where I have my 8" AR500 plates.
