Many ranges are set up with 25 and 50 meter/yard ranges for pistol and 25/50/75/100 yards for rimfire/rifle with some ranges offering 300-1000 m/y ranges.
It's common practice to set targets closer than max range, if you prefer.
No target stands at closer than 25m? No problem - check with range if you can tape targets to cardboard boxes stacked closer or bring your own range approved target stands if they are not available.
7 yards is pointlessly easy. Good only for ranges where I draw. A speed drill. Or un-aimed point shooting.
5 is handy for shooting from the retention position. We have an extra low bench at a few spots. I'm guessing for kids or wheelchairs. I've gotten away with hip shooting there. Which is mostly just to get reused to muzzle blast on/under my face, to prevent flinching.
"Just" 25m is ridiculously ignorant.
I would ask if I could put portable target stands closer than the 25 meters.
Ever try to nail five silhouettes in four seconds at 25 meters from 45 degrees?
