Actually the IDPA idea was a good one. Not only do you get varied distances, you practice moving and use of cover.

One thing to watch for is the range specific firing-rate allowances.

A lot of ranges I've dealt with lately have a mandatory 3-second wait between shots.

You can't practice self defense shooting like that!

I practice at 7 and 15 yards ... if the target is farther out, odds are I'm zigging and zagging in the other direction ... I occasionally shoot at the 25 yd stations -- the longest my range offers for handguns -- but mainly for fun ...
