Hitting an 8 inch target at 50 yds with a pistol is pretty darn good. Years ago I could manage that, Now my go to is a 12 ga with 00.
Late 80s, early 90's bunch of us used to go to the range on our days off to plink and compete. We thought we were the shiznit until an old man (mid 50's) set up some pistol targets at 100 yards, pulled out a custom 38 Super on a 1911 frame and proceeded to rapid fire bullseyes... He was warming up.
Then set up targets at 25, 50 and 100 and nauled all those on alternating shots with his 45 service pistol. He was an off duty Texas Ranger.
