    Yep those would probably require me to wear my glasses to see them well enough to hit them.
    Maybe I should say maybe I could hit them. Those are pretty small targets for me to hit from that distance. But it would be fun trying.

    I have to agree with Buster. I had a hard time seeing the targets but once you catch on to the video then you can see what they were shooting at and it looked like some pretty good shooting to me. What size were your targets?
    I don't know if I could see that far or not but like Buster says: it sure would be fun to try it out!!

    ohh Tommy those are 6" plates at 25yds
    hitting them isnt really any trouble
    its the moving from one to the other and back
    while trying to keep up a fair rate of fire that is the trouble
    im getting good enough to do it with most any of my handguns now
    thats why i made the comment in the video that my targets are to big
    i guess if i was doing some draw training of some type
    then the 6" would be fine at that range

    i dont know if im weird or not but you see me switching off guns all the time
    that seems to help me work on the shot not the gun

    its all alot of fun
    and i have gotten alot better now that i quit trying to poke holes in paper and started using reactive targets
    and it almost seems the faster i shoot, the more hits i get, i dont under stand that yet

    i just wanted to share that with everybody
