While it is more fun and pleasing to shoot close targets, it does less to develop your shooting.

Any combat handgun worth the title is very shootable at 25 yards. This distance demands that you're focusing on the sights properly, and will illustrate bad tendancies more obviously.

The whole idea of "I'll never need to make a shot further than 7 yards" is troubling. Someone equiped to make a longer shot will have no trouble at shorter ranges, but the opposite does not hold true.

I do my freehand shooting at 15, 25 and 50 yards. I shoot from the bench at 25, 50 and 100 yards, with the pistols that are up to the job.
