I have to say, your idea of using a bicycle helmet with a rear-view mirror attached for sighting with your off hand was truly innovative and ingenious. I'm amazed that you learned to shoot so accurately with the mirror in such a short time. It seemed like as soon as you conceived the idea, you were already qualifying "expert". Not many can hit a man-sized target at 200 yards shooting backwards with your off hand using a 3" barrelled pistol. At first I didn't understand how you did it...that is until you explained your idea of tripling the powder charge in your "special" handloads in order to create a visible supersonic "shockwave" as the bullet goes downrange. This of course allows you to make corrections in hold-over during the stress (although it isn't stressful to you) of combat when multiple attackers are assaulting you head-on...with others sneaking up on you from behind.

    I ask the obvious question. "Where would we be today without bicycle rear-view mirrors??
    Yeah, most people think that a triple powder charge in an S&W 500 can't be safely fired with your off hand, but you are my witness that it can be done, and rather effectively too... You were a little off on the distance though, it was 207 yards.

    207 yards! Absolutely amazing! Such pinpoint accuracy is amazing....considering the collateral damage that could be done in the crowded mall environment. Not many, (probably only you) could be trusted to take out the target with no injury to bystanders. And to think this was done usimg your off hand..shooting backwards wi.th a mirror using a triple powder charge in the massive 500 S&W. I know you dont get the credit and praise you deserve...but I am in your couirt!!!!
