My and one of my coworkers whent to the range today and we where shooting steel sihouettes and other things cut from steel targets at 100 yards. With are rifles whe where dinging the crud out of them and knocking over these steel pipe things people settup and shoot. We decided to use our .40 cal duty issued handguns. Off hand we could not even get close, so we got down on a rest behind a bench after 3 or 4 rounds I figgured out i needed to aim way high on the sihouette to hit it. I kinda started off aiming center of mass then worked my way up. I was perty much aiming at the top couple of inches directly below the head and I started hitting it. Im not sure If i was hitting it realy low but it was dinging. The Sihouettes are perty thick and the handgun rounds do not make it react other than the sound. So I am not sure where i was hitting it. However I was able to hit it on the average about 1 out of every 3 rounds after a while i got it down to probably 3 out of 5 but i was not paying that much attention to my hit ratio I was just focusing on hitting it. My coworker got frustrated and could not hit it at all so he switched to is AR and lit it up then came back to the handgun and was hitting it about like I was. So I got to thinking, these fixed "combat" sights on most non target semi auto hanguns where are they zeroed. I know they are not perfict but is there a general zero for them? Ive found most of them to be point of aim out to about 25 yards but ive never realy shot them much further till today. Also would you say with the average .40cal semi auto not a target pistol but a working gun. From a rest is 3 out of 5 a good hit ratio. Or do I need to work on that? Not that id realy shoot my pistol at 100 yards at somebody but you never know. Id most likely run and try to get my rifle at that distance.
