Just a question or statement here from a newbie Hi Point owner and a newer pistol shooter as well.
I generally shoot 35-50' with decent ( read fatal shot)accuracy.
What type of range are you getting with the 380, 9 & 45??
What do you feel is acceptable, good, excellent?
Thanks Folks,
Great discussions.

Most S/D training is done at 7 yrds with some at 15 yrds. There are of course exceptions but these are the distances
most seen. They say that the large majority of S/D shootings is at 21 ft. We drill at 7 to 10 yrds and throw in moving
as a condition... ducking, running from cover to cover and re-acquiring the target quickly.

Now what is the usable range with .380, 9mm, and .45? Lot further than that. ;)

Most of my defensive practice is at 10 yards with handguns, both eyes open. I've shot milk jugs at 50 yards with my JHP and 75 yards with some of my revolvers.

Thanks...for now it seems like I am doing it right. I want consistency at 50' or so as I figure any farther than that puts innocent citizens in danger. Also 50 feet would put you right in the middle of a 10000 square foot room which is about the size of an average movie theater room in Michigan just in case some idiot decided to shoot up the place it might not hurt to have a good guy in there or two. Thank you for the replies they're helpful. I really like these two guns and plan on buying a 45 soon. Any info or ideas for shooting techniques please feel free to throw at me. Thanks again!

About the only real thing to watch out for with the Hi Point pistols is to make sure not to "limp wrist" They can jam on you if you don't keep a firm grip on them.
