As long as you and the thing as large as a man are relatively stationary, I'm guessing. Sights don't help here anyway, so don't get me wrong; but from what little simunition-ish exercises I've had the fun to be part of, two guy who are both ACTIVELY maneuvering at 25 feet don't hit much. It sure changes your view of the world when the other guy is shooting back as well.
I remember Larry Correia (yes, THAT Larry Correia of MHI fame) in a CFP class he was teaching -- talking about how everybody imagines what "their gun fight" will be like. We buy equipment like holsters and such for "our gun fight", we practice shooting with "our gun fight" in mind, and so on. It's kind of like imagining what a car accident will be like -- then finding out that actually being in a car accident is something else entirely.
