My cpl class competency test, at the end of the course, is to fire two magazines or ten rounds in a seven inch circle at fifteen yards in something like fifteen seconds (forgot exactly how much). I'll accept that as basic accuracy;. Nothing to write home to mom about, but a good starting point. I couldn't hit a three foot cardboard box at twenty yards when I first used a pistol (Glock 20), that range day was a humbling and expensive disappointment. On an average day, I'll hit my 4" spinning target fairly consistently at 20 yards. My wife is a bit behind me but we work on it. I plan on hunting whitetail with my glock this year. I struggle to have a 12" group at 50 yards. I'm still working on it.
