    Thumbs up Chris

    "Unless Jerry Mikulic on the go and then it certainly would be fun to watch."

    I agree with that.

    For sure not meaning to start the wheely/slabsides wars up again but, I needed to give my thread a "catchy" title! :unitedsta

    Assuming those were all hits, that is pretty damn fast. Who is the shooter, do you know?

    In our IPSC league, the usual top shooter runs a wheelgun -- but the stages are set up to be six shots between them, so the wheel can be just as fast. Hard to compare to a 20-round high cap 1911 in a straight contest of sending rounds downrange though.

    It ain't the arrow it's the Indian.

    It ain't the gun it's the operator. Somewhere there's someone who can do that with a single action revolver, I have no doubt. I assure you it's not me.

    Nevertheless nice sporting demonstration!

    Exclamation P95Carry

    I agree 100% Chris.
    Lucky for all of us most street thug type BGs can't shoot at all or hardly.

    So have I, I was on the front row when he did the "draw, bust two balloons and reholster in .6 seconds"...The man is unbelievable.

    "draw, bust two balloons and reholster in .6 seconds
    I only saw this on tv, but I found it very impressive when he was shooting balloons at 200 yards with a 2" 38 spl. (Of course, I only saw the edited version. I wonder how many misses there were)
