What is the effective range of a 9mm semiautomatic pistol?
How does recoil affect time/accuracy of subsequent shots?
- Range of untrained person
- Range of average marksman
- Range of expert marksman
- Range of world class marksman
Wiki says "The accurate range of pistols generally does not exceed 100 metres (110 yd; 330 ft)"
This seems extremely unlikely to me in regard to the average person, and enthusiasts have suggested the effective range for most.
- What is the effective range of pistols in reality?
Do magnum loads/long barrels increase the effective range?
