Why would it scare anybody, I shoot at regular silhouette targets at 100-150-200 yards with my 1911A1 45cal pistol, 357 Dan Wesson Revolver and S&W M41 22 pistol. Any closer than 100 yards seems kind of silly to me.
With my rifles I shoot the reduced silhouette targets. Practice is practice and if it upsets the ninnies that is their problem, not yours.
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.
