Re: What is the longest distance you shoot your carry gun
For fun my buddies and I will shoot at clay pigeons out to what his range finder says is about 40 yards. Most of us miss more than we hit, but hitting that 40 yard clay with a handgun makes it worth it when we do see it shatter. To be honest we tend to hit more with our full size guns and not so much with our smaller carry sized.
"...As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."
