Playboy Penguin's power vs precision thread got me thinking about accuracy of a carry gun. Each person who carries chooses their carry weapon for many reasons. Fit, caliber, concealabilty and accuracy (I hope). So how do you gauge what is accurate? What range do you practice most at? I read about people who claim to get 3" groups at 25 yards with their 1911. I've never witnessed anything remotely close to this at the range. My standard for carry gun accuracy is 5 shots in less than 5 seconds in a 3" group at 7 yards. That's how I ended up with the Glock 19 as it was the only gun of 8 or so I tested at the range which did that consistently for me. Is there any need for me to be able to group at ranges beyond 7 yards?
