    3, 5 and 7 yards. 30 rounds; 21 need to hit the target. That's the minimum. Some instructors will have you shoot more. In my class we shot 40. 15 at 3 yrds, 15 at 5 yrds and 10 at 7 yrds. We also did a combination of two-handed, single-handed strong hand and single-handed weak hand.

    So according to this, what's a "target"? The Bulls-eye/Silhouette? or anywhere on the paper?

    You shot more rounds in more ways than specified. Of the 40 you shot, which 30 do you take? Can you just shoot until you hit the 'target' somewhere and have 21 hits? This sounds more like Spray and Pray.

    In TX we shoot at B-27 target and tally a point system score - 175 points out of a max of 250. See here - KR Training - Texas CHL shooting test. 20 rounds at 3 yards, 20 rounds at 7 yards and 10 rounds at 15 yards. I scored 246 and that was the first day I shot my gun. The shooting starts up close and assumes that missed shots went through other holes since you can't prove otherwise.

    In most cases you will shoot at a B-27 target in NC. I've heard of others shooting at an 8"x11" sheet of paper, which would represent center mass (8, 9 rings and bulls-eye) on a B-27.

    The training standard doesn't set a maximum, so the instructor can choose to make you shoot more if they want. The goal is to get 70% or better of your total rounds. I prefer a more thorough instructor; so I enjoyed being required to shoot more and use different hands.

    That's actually not a bad idea counting a miss when two rounds enter the same hole. We're taught to be aware of what's behind your intended target. So two shots in two separate areas of center mass would hopefully prevent a round exiting the rear striking an innocent. Ammo choice would have a lot to do with that as well.

    You would almost have to try to fail the shooting portion.

    Indeed, it's relatively easy if you've shot before. Or atleast handled a handgun at some point. Having said that, I had an older lady next to me at the range who almost didn't pass. Some of her shots at 3 yrds were going over the shoulders of a B-27 target. Luckily she pulled it together and passed as the qualification progressed.
