    What is this expert marksman's name?
    I see this guy on TV specials but don't remember his name. Do any of you know his name?

    I wish I could shoot half as well as that.

    Yeah, me too!
    But hey, as long as we can put 3 rounds to center of mass at 25-50 feet in rapid fire, that's all we "normal people" need to do, right? ;)

    I use 9" paper plates as targets and you're right... as long as I can hit those consistently, I'm good to go.

    Paper plates work wonderfully for target shooting... and are far cheaper than store bought targets. If you can put 2-3 quick rounds into the paper plate with your pistol, then you're good to go.

    We can only hope that nerves will not get in the way if and when we ever need to use the gun in a crisis situation.

    Very true. That is the only thing you can't prepare or practice for. You just have to hope it all becomes some sort of instinct.

    Actually that isn't all there is to it. It's a matter of evaluating the situation around you. When you practice you need to practice at different distances. Also where practical practice shooting from the hip. The reason being is that most attatcks are either usually a few feet away or there are multiple targets. Always be prepared and shoot often enough to develop muscle memory. That way even in dark conditions you can hit your target.
