    Default What Kind of PD Accuracy Do You Accept?

    Shot the new CM9 again today.

    Without using the CT laser, I practiced raising it from a 45 degree "down" angle using two hands, and firing two shots.

    Range was close, 25 feet, but I think as a BUG it will probably be an "up close and personal" point and shoot affair.

    What say you?

    darn nice shootin.
    . My PM9 has over 34,000+ rounds through it, and runs much better than an illegal trying to get across our border

    Well, thanks, but I'm really interested in everyone's idea of personal defense accuracy.

    How good do you think is "good enough"?

    That's good enough
    8" or paper plate size is good to me.

    Here ya go...

    This is our primary point of aim. If our bullets strike in a six- to eight-inch circle centered on this point (shown in red above), they'll damage the heart, and also affect the blood vessels above it. If they penetrate deeply enough, they can also hit the spinal column, and may injure the spinal cord.

    Any grouping within six inches center mass at 7 yards is more than enough accurate for me when it comes down to SD.

    Simple creature that I am, I'm usually satisfied with all rounds in center of mass at 21 feet. Did I also mention that I'm only what I would call a fair shot?

    I think that's a good benchmark.

    IMO If you can keep most of your shots within the "8" ring on a sillouette target at 7 yards with a draw and fire, it should be good enough for SD. That contains most of the vital organs you want to hit.
    I've also heard you don't really need a tight group in a SD situation (probably not going to acheive that anyway with the adrenalin flowing) You want to spread the shots out and hit more vital organs so the perp bleeds out quicker. That's just what I read, and made sense to me. You do want an accurate weapon capable of tight groups. It's nice to be able to draw quickly and place a shot on a playing card, takes practice though. I don't think I can do that very quickly. And certainly not in a situation. It seems that a lot of people are lucky to hit anything when the adrenalin kicks in, from looking at police car videos and and hearing about gang bang shootouts where they find like 20 spent cases and maybe 1 person was wounded.
