I stopped at Shoot Point Blank on my way home from work Saturday.
I’m never going to claim to be a marksman or a sharpshooter, but feel I am at least competent with handling my weapon.
You will notice that there is a great difference between the top two 4 inch targets and the bottom three 2 inch targets. All shot at 7 yards.
If you shoot just to shoot, there is nothing wrong about that. But if you are training to possibly be in a defensive shooting situation, you should practice shooting from the double action position. (if your weapon has double action). My M9 22 is a double/single.
I am going to get a CCW in my state soon and I do need to practice such things. I doubt that my M9 would be a daily carry piece just because of the size, but I do like the da/sa as a safety control.
The 4 inch on the right was the first magazine and the left was the second. I did much better with the second mag.
