Old grump I was steeped in markmanship from a very young age with a grampa that was old school. I shoot most of my handguns at 100 yads. The real challenge is hitting the jugs with sub compact semiautos. I can pop the heck of them with BP revolvers. Though the BP revolvers were factory sighted for 75 yards.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
