No. Occasionally shoot big bore on a rest but, not for training. He makes an interesting claim that somewhat makes sense. I would think following proper techniques, shooting regularly at shorter distances and training will provide the same results.

No,  too far to walk to check target.

I used to shoot revolver DA at 50 sometimes.

Yes, 100 yards with glock 19

No, what for?  Is the effective range of a G19 really out to 100yards?

I lived in western PA for a while, our local range had a steel silhouette target set up at 160 yards.  I loved shooting at it with different handguns.  Sure I missed it a lot but it sure was satisfying when I hit it.

about 5 shots a week.   I practice at 50 yards all the time though.  with a glock carry gun

Done it in a few 3 Gun matches, they have Steel TGT's
it can be done,,

Nope.

If im shooting that kind of distance, its a planned shot and because it is planned, i have a rifle.

I would if my local range would allow pistol out that far.  Alas they don't, and frankly I can't argue with their logic.  Guess the average shooter is just too inaccurate, not sure if it's an insurance thing or not.

Everything about this range is sub-par except it's super close to home.

I make sure to shoot a few mags at the max distance a range will allow up to 100 yards w/ a pistol when ever the opportunity presents

Yes, but not as frequently as I should.    A person could find themselves away from home having to engage a perp at 100 yds or more.

Most days, I don't transport an AR in my vehicle to work nor out shopping.   When I do, I rarely carry an AR on or about my person, though I have on a few occasions.  

Nevertheless, I do always carry at least a Glock G22 with a light and laser and a G27, 5 22 rd mags and 1 15 rd mag along with two knives, batteries for lights and my phone, 2 lights, 1st aid kit with a trauma kit and surgical kit, Leatherman, pepper spray, and some cash.   To this, I sometimes add additional firearms, depending on the situation.

Each person has to may such a choice for themselves.

Most frequently shot 22 rimfire.  Buckmark, factory 4.4" threaded barrel.  All factory internal parts resulting in a 2 to 2.5 pound trigger pull.

yup. good to have an idea of where rounds will end up if you miss in close, or really need to take shots at distance. I aimed my baer 45ACP at the head of a 1/2 size steel target at 100 and saw dirt splash about 20 yards before the target. I actually have to hold maybe 3 feet high, but once i did I was able to put them on target.

Good to know in case suppressive/cover fire is needed and I don't have my rifle. Rare, but shooting at 100 makes a 7 yard target look like a breeze.

I'll admit to cracking off a few long range shots with a couple of different hand guns when we were messing around at the ranch. Nothing serious though and I learned little from those shots except I want my rifle if I need to shoot beyond 25-50 yards.

yep  45ACP is big and slow.

It's fun to take out magnum revolvers, and see / hear the difference between 38 special bunny farts, and fast magnum loads.

Many years ago, when I was younger and lived in a place where I could shoot farther, it was a lot of fun.  

Soda cans at 100 yds. with the Ruger Mk1.  Seven out of ten, on average.

Rocks, tree limbs, etc. with the .357's anywhere from 100 to 200 yds., or more.

The 1911 would keep them all on a man sized paper target at 100 yds. but was not as accurate as the Ruger or the magnum revolvers.

I keep telling myself I'm going to try the P09 at 50 and then 100 yds. but I never get around to it.  One hundred yds is the farthest you can shoot at the range I belong to.

18" square steel all day long with my beretta 92fs at 100 yards at my range. I will even shoot the big steel gong at 200.

Yes. I have steel hanging at 50, 85 and 125 yards. I practice with all my handguns. Especially my carry guns.

If I am out and some psycho killer has me pinned down or cornered and is approaching and I have a clear shot at 50+ yards I'm gonna take it.

My club has a piece of steel at 110 yards on the rifle range. I like to ring it with my handguns sometimes. I don't set up a target at 100 specifically for the pistols.

I used to shoot at a 2x4 100yds away. When I eyes were a little better. I was surprised at how often I could hit it.

None of the ranges I use have 100 yard pistol available. 25 yards is the max I have available. I always make sure to run a few mags of my g19, and 1911 @ 25 yards when I get the chance. I keep improving these days as long as I don't take more that a week off between sessions.
I do miss being able to walk out into the woods to shoot. You can't do that around here.

I use a pistol to shoot smallbore rifle silhouettes. Nothing better than beating shooters that use rifles with a pistol.

The 100yd ram & the pistol I use.

We shoot out to 100 with our handguns when we use the outdoor range. The 357 Sig is a pretty flat shooter.

Never even tried a pistol beyond 35 yards.

I feel so inadequate

I was using my Buckmark Hunter with a red dot at 100yds. Most hits out of 70 rounds were in the 5" circle.
I'm going to mount a scope to see just how well it can do.

I have done some 100 yard work with my BHP. Takes a few rounds to get zeroed and I was shooting at steel so I could get a sound return. Once I got the feel for it, it was easy to hit the steel at 100 yards.

We've got steel targets on our home range at 15yd (12x20 torso), 30yd (8x8 square & 8" circle), 75yd (12x20 torso), 100yd (12x20 torso), and 150yd (12" circle & 6x6 square).

Me and my boys (10 & 11) like to see who can ring them in order, 1 shot / 1 target. Shooting G19, BHP and S&W 2206 (22lr), all iron sights. The boys can usually ring them out to 75. I can ring them out to 100 with the 2206 easily, the 12" gong at 150 is a little more challenging, but it rings often enough to stop their smack talking

I should... but no, I don't practice at 100 yards offhand with any pistol. I do practice quite a bit at 30 yards though with an 18" wide, 24" long steel silhouette gong though with my carry and HD pieces. I draw and put 10 rounds as fast as possible then do a reload and lay another 10 at the gong. 80% of my bullets find their mark as reported by the ping of steel. I've read the FBI statistics stating most gunfights happen at 7 yards and under... I'm thinking training at 30 yards for speed and hits should make for far better training than your average "thug/criminal" does. If I handgun hunted I would practice at 100 yards however!

Nope.  Let's be real...the average person MIGHT be able to hit a man sized target at 100 yards with a G19, but they aren't going to be doing that with much frequency and they aren't going to be doing that under pressure.

I'm sure that plenty of people on the internet can do it "on the reg," but numerous LEOs that have done mag dumps with handguns at threats WELL inside of 50 yards and managed to mostly hit empty air say otherwise.

All the time. I actually started doing it accidentally. I used to target practice with the uncle that raised me with rifles at 100yds. He passed away when I was 10 and for my birthday that year I got the Ruger MarkII that he had bought me and put away. I just went to the same place and shot at the same targets as he used to take me, a small pit in the woods near our house. I really sucked at first, but I assumed that was because I had never shot a handgun before. A few thousand CCIs later and I wasn't too awful bad at it. Shot that way for years until I went to an actual pistol range with some friends one weekend. I had no idea people shot stuff so close, lol.

I will say it served me well as I grew older and started hunting deer with a .357, then .44, and now my .454. Not that I shoot animals that far away (except yotes sometimes), but being relatively confident with the sights/sidearm at 100 yds makes you feel pretty good at 35.
