ISSF and UITS are sanctioning groups for those shooting those long barrelled 22LR pistols.... except everyone here shoots at that distance and considers it normal.
Maybe you are thinking of small targets? The targets people normally use here are this:
55cm is HUGE. It really is not a big deal to at least hit the target.
In the case of my Japanese guest, I taught her and supervised her shooting. Stands to reason she would have done better if taught and supervised by an actual instructor, but like I said, her performance was very much the same as the newbies taught by the instructors seem to have on average.
It's more of elite target shooting than the self-defense/home defense most will practice.
