These are also my thoughts on self defense…..it will be close. I did shoot a couple rounds at about 20 feet just to familiarize myself with the weapon…..but it kinda felt weird…..LOL! I shoot my bow out to 70 yards and have no intentions of shooting an animal over 35, and under the right conditions maybe 40 yards. I guess I figure if I shoot at 20 yards it will make me better at 20 feet. Still, God knows I hope I never have to punch anything other than paper with it!
theres not a thing wrong with shooting 20 yards,just remember your not shooting a target pistol,and get discouraged.
I’m seeing that….lol! You guys have made me feel pretty good about my shooting, on the other hand my wife is wondering if she wouldn’t do better by just carrying a big RAMBO knife and letting them get REAL close! I have 3 gun cabinets full of rifles and shotguns, and also 3 bows. I have shot a few handguns in my time, but these are the first one’s I’ve ever owned. I wouldn’t know a target pistol if I seen one……but I have done a lot of research and reading about shooting handguns and some of the different makes and styles before purchasing them, based on what we are hoping to NOT have to use them for.
