From the same spot to the back deck sliding door is 8 feet. From the top of the stairs to the furthest point I can see on the first floor is 12 feet (linier distance). Bedrooms wall to wall, Bedrooms to end of hall, all are less than 15 feet.

    My goal for my wife (which she can meet). Is to put all 15 rounds from a glock 17 into a 9 in paper plate while it is moving from 7 yards to point blank range. The rail moves the target this distance over about 15 - 20 seconds. I take my wife to the range for this drill twice a week. For distances greater than this, the targets are not inside my house.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Self defense is not limited to "in the home". Self-defense scenario could happen anywhere.

    t4terrific, I agree. I tried to edit my post to say I drill with my wife twice a year not twice a week. If she needs to engage outside of the house, she will have to use her car because she does not have a carry permit.

    My wife can shoot pretty well. With her deer rifle and scope, she has taken deer at 100+ yards and with her rimfire rifle and iron sights off a log, she can kill squirrels at 50 yards. For home defense with a Glock 17, I just want her to be confident that she can use the glock to hit center of mass within the distances she will most likely engage at.

    I hope I did not offend anybody with this philosophy. thanks rch

    Congrats on a great pistol

    Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. My advice, I'd rather take .5 extra seconds to get a well placed round on target, then shoot fast and just spray lead everywhere. Just breathe take your time, worry about your fundamentals. Get the rounds where you want them first, then we can practice getting faster. But that's just my opinion. Gongrats, the Glock 19gen4 is on my list of top five favorite 9mm's. Remember regardless of caliber selection, if you practice, get that first round dead center mass, then all the others won't matter as much. I always try to teach people to aim center mass. If you try to be a tactical ninja, and go for 100% head shots all the time, you might miss. I carry .45 because I dig .45. But a well placed 9mm to the dead center mass, should stop any threat. Re access, follow up shot if needed, threat neutralized, re-holster.

    Glock 19 is a great handgun.

ID:	18615 Well this was my first time shooting the 43x @ 12 yds. Not a masterpiece to be proud of by any means, but the trigger on the 43x is nothing Glock should be proud of either. Like any firearm...shooting and a little usage wear will go a long way to improve the results......I sure hope so!

    I just got a G19 gen 4 yesterday. Haven’t had a chance to shoot it yet. Ready to give it a try.
