Default How good of a shot are you?

Since I made this "post how you shoot" thread where people upload targets to show how well they shoot There has been a alright response.

But compared to how many pics of people showing off their rifles its like 1:100.

So I wanna know how well can you shoot?
Can you group 1-2 inch at 100 yards?
6 inches 100 yards? 4 inches 100 yards? etc

Of course there will be a difference between a scoped rifle vs Iron sights.

So what say you?

You can shoot 1moa or better 100 yards / 10 moa 1000 yards

2-3 moa 100 yards, 4-6 moa, 8-10 etc

can hit the target at least

sometimes hit the target

can hit my neighbors target aiming at my target

just like to say i have guns but cant shoot worth poop.


I forgot to add, im not saying im some super sniper or anything.
I did serve in the Marines and shot expert.
Thats Iron sights on a M16A2 at 100, 200 300 500 yards.
My most recent accomplishment was my scoped Larue 20 inch AR,
I have not had the privileged to shoot my rifles past 100 yards yet.

16" barrel 1/7 twist 5.56 chamber.

I hunt so the only shot that i consider is hitting a clay standing with 4x scope 270 BAR at 100 yds. Never could find a bench to rest on in the woods.

No, I suck. about 6 to 8 inch groups at 100 yards with saiga and all over the place at 15 yards with handgun. "At least I would hit a man size target" is about all I can say. Need practice...need money

I usually hit what I'm aiming at. Sometimes I don't check the target after I shoot I just run out of ammo and leave.

Interestingly it all depends on the weapon being used and in how its deployed. My .22 shoots about .75" to 1" at 50 yds with mini mags which is all I need for bunnies, varmints, etc. 2-3" at 15 yds for my P220 which again is plenty for its intended purpose (SD). For shotguns, I compare the ratio of fired shells to the ducks on my strap. Now in my custom rifle I do strive for ultimate accuracy because thats whats its built for. With handloads its best is .321 for 5 shots at 100 yds and just recently at Sac Valley it did 5 shots into 4.391 at 900 yds. It may even do better but the WIND makes all the difference.

I can get the bullets to come out of the end of the gun with the hole on it. I'll admit to nothing more on a public forum.

I can be downright surgical with a 1911 and pretty darn decent with most rifles. But like anything, I have some days that are better than others.

I can shoot a rough 8 inch group at 15 yards with my .40 M&P, Ive only shot pistol 2 times though, I def need more practice with a handgun.

I fell out of a boat and missed the water

On a similar concept...what is the point of being accurate if its not practical? Greg Dawgs group is absolutely impressive without a doubt...and generally shooting like that means they "should" have some sort of tactical applicability. But what do the groups look like with double taps, rapid fire, draws, etc.?

IMHO MOA from a benchrest/shooting gallery...taking your time etc. is not a real test of practical shooting skill. Its a great way to drill down to creating good habits with basics before you speed things up...there is no argument about that. However I like to see/hear of people continually pushing their skill by challenging themselves to harder tasks. It seems like people focus too much on MOA rather than realistic shooting scenarios. This is fine if your shooting purely as a hobby but the general undertones suggest a lot of defensive ideals and machismo. Drawing, Timed shooting, competitions, etc. FWIW the last time I worked on pistol drawing rapid fire I could double tap the COM at 15 yards within the 10" circle...going for speed and hits...not groupings. Taking my time with pistol (target ammo) I can hit COM at 25 yards with about a 3-5" spread depending on coffee intake and sleep.

I can hit the gong one out of 10 times with a 3moa red dot and a .44mag out of a 7.5" super redhawk. Thats freakin hard man. Seriously though, I can probably only at BEST shoot 2-3moa with good irons like national match sights or diopter sights, and can shoot sub moa with a scope and trigger work done by yours truly. My next upgrade should really be my trigger then my scope.

I shoot well enough that if I need to defend myself I feel confident in doing so. I am not good enough to really have any "groups", but I generally hit around where I aim. I really just need more practice but the cost and availability of ammo prohibits that.

I generally shoot with about the same accuracy with both my WASR-10 and my Mosin-Nagant 91/59.

I wish I could shoot rifles half as well as Fjold. Broadside of a barn, indeed.

As for handguns, I can hold my own.

Lately, I've been shooting my Glock and everything leans to the left, but the groupings are relatively tight. Good enough for a passing score. So, if you don't want to get hit by friendly fire, stay to the right of me!

Since I am not normally "in the pits" after each group I shoot, it's hard for me to get pictures of them. Here is one I took while screwing around at CRC (Coalinga Rifle Club) the day we staged the benches on the 1000 yard line. This is not my best group ever. It was the only 5 shot group I shot that day so, it was both the best and worst of the day.



Oh yea, it was shot with my ALS 50BMG upper at 1000 yards. Sorry I didn't have a tape measure handy. I was really just trying out the new benches we had made but, I was happy enough with the group to run down and take a picture of it. The 5th shot appears to have made a .4moa-.5moa group into a .7moa-.8moa group.

I shoot a bit of everything-fair to middling. Depends on the day, gun, my body status.

Best Bullseye w/ .223 @ 100 yds, offhand & sitting was 273/300.

Pistol I averaged about 230/300.

IPSC I'm C+ shooter.

IDPA, Sharpshooter in SSR & Marksman in ESP.

Highpower Sihlouette 20/40

I need more time to shoot!

I shot a few rounds of trap, averaged 16/25

My passion is speed shooting the handguns. Accuracy is only a third of the equation!

243 was my best on the Marine Corps qual.

200, 300, 500 meters, open sights, well used M16A1.

Shot 22 birds the very first time on skeet. Nobody believed it was my first time. They believed it after I shot the house 3 times on the second round.

Also missed a rabbit at 10 yards with a rifle, so it seems to come and go.

My eyesight is going, so I have to pick between being able to see the sights (good for target shooting) or the target (good for hunting). I look like a spaz trying to look over and under my glasses when I shoot now.

Well... I could post more of my pics of groups that I have shot from the bench...but instead I'll just add this...

You don't get this by being a bad shot

I have good days and bad days. I can generally pick off bowling pins at 200 yrds no problem. But some days I have 2 foot groupings at 100 yrds. Alot depends on my mood. Some days I just enjoy throwing lead down range and don't really worry about taking my time.

If a suspect is holding a hostage, and if I see an one inch square of the target area on the suspect, I can hit my target with confidence. That is all I care.
