This post is for the folks who think that they won't ever need any skill beyond bad-breath distance,
Now this is a subject that is a pet peeve of mine. The ideal the "average shot is less then "X" feet.
Don't know about the rest of you but I hate the term "average" in these situations.
Since you're we can shoot in the "average range" we're good to go. Kind of like saying "since most car accidents occur within 1 mile of the house, any thing past that its safe to un-buckle.
Don't know about the rest of you, but Murphy's Law's seem to apply to me when I try to rely on averages
