Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences with me. I really appreciate your input.One of the reasons I shoot my EDCs at 25yds (10-15 if that's all a range accommodates) is because when I train drills at that distance, it translates into even faster application at closer distances. The practice really paid off when I took a couple of tactical pistol courses with my P365 where the targets were at 5yds. After shooting controlled pairs and transition drills on 10" plates at 25yds, 5yds was nothing.
Try dedicating a couple boxes of ammo to the drills you run at 7yds to the same targets at 25yds during a few range sessions in a row, and you'll be amazed at how it feels to execute them when you go back to the 7yd line again.
Based on your existing 7yd grouping, you're ready to take that plunge. Just be patient and endure the slower split times at 25yds, focusing on the best accuracy you can get with the fastest time. As you do so, you'll find a rhythm that will see controlled pair splits of less than a second with the pairs hitting inside of 10" of each other. As you continue, you'll see them get down to .75 seconds inside the same diameter.
Agreed with P938365: the further the range you practice, the better you shoot closer in. It helps you correct errors you might not see up close. It's also a) a far more common shot than you might think if you base your expectations on what gets reported most, and b) keeps your own self humble when you realize how easily that pistol remains deadly far further out than you've practiced. After all, bad guys aren't going to wait for you to get within 10 yards before they start shooting.
No flaming here. Everyone's entitled to their opinion but I would ask have you shot one? Would love to know what you opinion is based on.I'll probably get flamed for this but it's hard to believe ports in the slide do a heck of a lot, I'd be surprised if they would even blow off masking tape.
I kind of like that approach.I wouldn’t Jim immediately to 25, but I’d certainly back it out to 10-15.
2 pound 10 ounce 5 pull average on my Lyman's Digital Scale.What is the pull weight of your "better trigger action"?
