I'm pretty surprised at some of the comments on "range". I trained as an Infantryman with a 7.62MM M-14, and routinely hit 3/4 size sillouhettes at 400 meters, 8 times out of ten. With an M-16, the same at 300 meters. I got an "Expert" rating, but the "Sharpshooter" rating was still 6 hits out of 10. "Marksman" was 4 hit's out of 10. It wasn't that difficult. When I went to work for the DOJ, All your shot's had to be in the kill zone at 25 yards to qualify as a trainee instructor. (S&W M10 Heavy barrel, 15 shots). When I was instructing later with the Ruger P89 9MM, everyone who held a LEO position had to qualify once a year by hitting a Transtar 1 target 21 times out 30. Were talking secretary's who fired a gun once a year. 30 round course at 5, 15, and 25 yards. It took a lot of one on one training, but they all qualified. Why does 200 yards with a rifle, or 25 yards with a handgun strike people as "long range"?
