From the stats available, which are limited, a majority of defensive shooting occur at relatively close range, and few shots fired. Thus, preparing for that type of situation is wise. Yet, there are plenty of situations where longer distances or more shots are required. So, ONLY preparing for "conversational distance" violence is not recommended.

Personally, I would say 10yds or less should be the majority of self-defense training, but you should occasionally push it out to 25 or 50yds. This helps work on accuracy and provides you a good gauge of your speed/accuracy limitations.

**Prepare for the probable first, then the possible.**
