I couldn't agree more. My buddy showed up to the range with a 1911 with a laser and was doing OK I joked about that being cheating. So he challenged me and said he would swap guns. I took his gun emptied the clip with results that were much better than he saw me getting with my 1911 (with extensive work done by the Marine Corp pistol team gunsmith) and significantly better than he had been doing. He shot my gun terribly and blamed the gun. My brother who was on the Marine Corp pistol team was with me and took my gun and made a nice 2 hole.Get an optic. That will make near any gun get hits at 100 with very little user effort, reason I argue ammo does't matter is because all my optic guns can hit a 4 inch plate every single time at 50 yards no matter if it's a glock, CZ, 1911, or FN. I use really cheap ammo to practice with too......
I shoot most handguns at 25 yds practicing. But at the end of a shoot I go out to 100yds. I think if we’re in danger the longer shot maybe needed we never know.Their is a distance at which self defense is not considered valid. Even 50 yards is not close enough I believe. Not my opinion, you do need to be able to prove that you believed your life was in danger.
good video... good point ... some people won’t get it though... he’s probably shot more ammo than the gunner of an A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog)When I was shooting on the Army pistol team back in '71 I was able to keep 5 shot groups about golf ball sized with my Remington Rand at standard competition distances - one-handed shooting of course back then. Understanding that with age the remembered groups get smaller, the caught or lost fish bigger and the girls I kissed prettier.
Ammo? Whatever mil-surp crapola came out of the ammo bunker in North Carolina - lol
I always try to repost Hickok45's fine video on 'accuracy' when the topic comes up on forums -
