My standard target is a 50' small bore pistol target and I use it for everything from 50 yards to 200 yards for my rifles and at 25 yards for shooting off hand pistol. Without that great big bullseye lurking in front of my sights I am forced to look at the front sight of my iron sights or the cross hairs of my scopes. Works for me. It isn't the only target I use but for sighting in and serious shooting that is my choice.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
