I got my carry permit about a year ago but have refused to carry my gun untill I was good enough with it. What is good enough? Somehow, In my mind I came up with this. I must be able to consistently put all 12 rounds from my G3c into a 6" Dia. Circle at 7yds. Why 7yds. I don't know really. I think because that was the maximum distance they allowed us to shoot in carry class. That's 3" from the red dot in any direction. I think this is where somebody is going to pop up and say " I can shoot a flea off a Nats rear end in mid flight at 60 yards". Great, Good for you. But for me? I wish. Today, After nearly a year of really struggling. I think I'm there. Today a 100 rounds and only 3 just barely outside that Circle. Then, at the range. A big smile on my face. Proud of my shooting today. At the check out. The guy asked," How did you do today?" I said, Pretty Good. He said. " I was watching you on the monitor. You were standing awful close to that target". Bummer. The smile was gone. Not so proud. My question for you who carry, shoot 3" or less barrel, compact handguns. Do you have a set accuracy, distance, or whatever limit that you set in your mind that you feel you need to meet? Just me asking.
