I get 3" groupings at 25 yards. if I practice and use good ammo I can shrink that some.
I must not be practicing near enuff or the 25 yard line is wrong at my local range. I do good to get a good site picture at that range, however that is not the same story with my browning .22 and red dot scope. I do on average 300 rds of .22 vs. 50-100 rds of 9mm mainly due to cost
I can get good groups with slow fire at 15 yds or less. I usually do a lot of rapid fire at these ranges also.
I have read a lot about IDPA and think I'm gonna give a try. I know that is a whole other style of shooting and recommended by lot of people on this site for defensive shooting skills, but I like target shooting (plinking).
I have just got back into shooting regularly a couple months ago, but I try to work on technique, as well as, just having fun. I have found that for me, I do better working on my technique and sight-in close, say 5 yds then I extend my range a few yards at a time to 15 yds first , then go to 25 yds.
I know at this web site you can download a targets traing guide tutorial:
Practice makes perfect.
