If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
165 feet is superb if yards he must of had a scope and a Glock.

Yoda, I am, yes.
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.
Nice!!! What a man!!

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
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."
Under the new-and-improved dictionary definition there's a photo: Trailer Trash ... see him.
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.

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
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.

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