Oh no... I was totally right on top of the target... It was 3 yards. This was the 'afraid to touch a firearm, never been around them, no idea what any of the parts are even called' class. LOL!!! I am still proud though cause I was afraid to touch it before the class, now I have safety basics and some of the parts down. I didnt hurt anyone and I am still welcome to come back to the store.... so all in all, a great day. I emailed the owner asking to schedule the 1 on 1 for extra help and then the skill builder class will be after that and that is when they will give me the 5 and 7 yard practices.You sure you didn't use it as a 5' target instead of a 50'?
