That should be fine.

at what ranges should i practice fromReally depends on how your club runs things. I would wager 15-20 yards should be fine. Most stages I have shot have been

Honestly, assuming this is your first match I wouldn't worry about doing well, just go shoot the match, be safe, learn how things are run, and have fun.

Yes, 15-20 yds is the typical max for 3-gun, however, know your elevation to 50 yds because every once in a while there is a "test". :D

USMC Pistol Qualification: 7, 15, and 25 yards. 7 and 15 are rapid (and mostly DA) and the 25 is SA slow fire.
