Of the first 6 rounds I fired I wasn't paying much attention to accuracy. Of the next 12 shots I do recall them creating a hole in the paper about 1-1/2 to 2" in diameter at 8 yards. For me, that is not too bad. I am certain someone with a better shooting ability will be able to keep them closer together. For self defense purposes, it should be good enough. I guess I should open the group up a bit more to affect a greater number of organs. For conserving paper smaller holes work better. Just place another round sticky on a clean piece of the paper and you have another target using the same paper.
I did mention the accuracy was good. The pistol is capable of greater accuracy than I am.
