#1 Hitting targets with a pistol at 100 yds is some challenging shooting. At 200 yds really challenging. Open sights or optics?

#2 Open sights, always.

#3 Thought you were probably using open sights. Just thought, I'd ask. Quite a few people rig their pistols with lasers, or telescopes these days. I've never cared much for these for pistols.

#4 If you consistently hit your target using open sights at 50 yards, you are one helluva shot.

#5 Confused, I see a rifle. It's not hard to hit targets with open sights on a range at 100 yards. I used to shoot service rifle and did it all the time with my M-1 Garand and my competition AR. 300 is a bit more challenging.

Nowdays, my 7.62x51N carbine has a holographic on it and makes 200 yard hits easy. My wife says the thing is cheating though there's no magnification. I just give her a look and snort.

I really prefer the 7.62x51 to 5.56x45mm. I can shoot at the same speed but am sure that the round will hit harder.

#6 Bully for you, and it may well be easier with a rifle round that offers a flatter trajectory and less bullet drop.

But it is a big damn deal for me.
