Long Range Pistol
#1
I am just starting to get serious with long range pistol shooting
I guess 50 & 100 yards is long range.

Any Long Range guy's out there ?
What is the longest distance you have tried?
Any speical things I should look out for?

Just wondering, which pistol are you using to shoot 50 and 100 yards? My local ranges go out to 25 yards, but there is one near me that goes out to 100 yards. I enjoy shooting pistol more than rifle, and I would love for something accurate out to 100 yards. Do you use an optic on it too?

I sometimes shoot my 9mm and 38 Special out to 100yds. 12x18 steel plate. Open sights resting and standing. Enjoy! Nothing special, just long barrel revolver and a compact EAA Witness.

Oh yes - I guess I should have mentioned that.
S&W XL Hunter .357/6"barrel. with Leupold VX3 2.5-8x32mm
Its new.
I have an old S&W Combat 19/357/6"bl ( gota drill to put a scope on it- did not want that)
Years ago we would play at 70 yards. It was the best we had.
Hitting a normal NRA 100yard target @ bench rest was not all that hard. So, I wnat to do it right this time and my club has ranges form 25 to 300 yards.
~THANKS~

9mm & 38 @ 100yard - that is nice.
I'm going to have to give that a try.
