    I agree, and regardless of the distance, Mr Stacy did a good job. I'm glad the results on his efforts were successful. BTW that is sort of an odd distance estimation, I'm assuming someone paced it off.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    It is quite often that people will misuse yards instead of feet. I see that fairly frequently on posts in the forums where someone says that they were shooting at 50 yards when, in reality, the rest of their post makes it pretty clear that it wasn't 150 feet that they were talking about, but 50 FEET. Even some say 25 yards which is still longer than most indoor gun ranges (not saying they don't exist as I know they do, but I doubt that most of the pistol ranges are not likely that).

    Even at 165 feet, that's some damn fine shootin'. Love the old timers attitude about it all, it reminds me a lot of older Southern gentleman I've been/get trained by down here in good ole' South Carolina.

    I've made 500yd shot to hit a keg with my glock before. It took a whole magazine but I did it.

    That leads me to believe 165yds with a 357 mag is very possible.

    And to those who decide to call bs on my glock shot there were two witnesses. 1 is an LEO too.

    Usually is when, as in this case, it is backed up by a rifle - just sayin.

    Kudos to the people involved. Another example of how a violent criminal situation can be impeded or halted by a citizenry capable of saying "no."

    Holy cow... and I thought the Fairchild AFB cop shoot was impressive (still is - 4 shots at 70yds, two hits, one between the eyes, after a sprint across base on a bicycle).

    But from the interview, 165yds, from cover, first hit in the thigh (maybe 18" south of COM?), next 3 or 4 hits while under fire?

    Nice shootin', Tex!

    Edit: BTW, maybe he had something fancier, but I'm gonna bet this guy was carrying a pretty straight-up stock revolver. Anyone got a good way to show what a standard ramp and notch sight looks like superimposed on a human-sized target at 165yds?

    It just goes to show:

    This is a crazy world;
    There are crazy people in this crazy world,
    Things can go south fast;
    Tragedy can strike in the blink of an eye;
    Good guys still live;
    Good LEO's still exist;
    Bad people still do violence;
    Never turn your back on a threat;
    Clean up after your dogs;
    Pointy sticks don't go 165 feet;
    There is a reason to train and shoot a lot;
    Dogs should be on lead, fenced in or kept out of adjoining properties;
    Life is fragile;
    Probably a bunch more I've missed; and

    You just can't make this stuff up.

    This is so tragic on so many levels. We should remember the lessons.

    The 357 can do it. I've rung a 2 ft steel plate a few times at our local range @ 300 yards.
    Stock sights on a 6" GP100, w/ full power 158 grainers. It took a couple shots to get it dialed in, and aiming a couple feet high.

    Doing it under stress w/ a guy shooting back, very impressive!!
    I'd like to buy him dinner so I could hear the whole story, with all the details.

    I got one more for you...be friends with your crazy neighbor. lol

    Jokes aside, thats one hell of a shot. I bet it broke the femur. I would like to know what his grouping was on this shoot. I bet it's under an inch.

    Another headline could be, "Man with handgun takes on criminal with rifle at 165 ft. and wins." That takes some big ones.
