    What is "Self defense Range"? What distance should I shoot at while at the range? I don't see it making sense to shoot at distances that are not realistic. Thanks Shaun

    Welcome to Glock Talk.

    Agasint an opponent armed with a remote control weapon such as a gun, self-defense range is the distance that separates you from him when he is about to shoot you. It's most often close, but longer shots do occur. Some of the armed citizens who pinned down the mad sniper Charles Whitman and stopped the killing before the cops nailed him, were firing their rifles from hundreds of yards away.
