getting old ain’t for p-ssies.
Sheesh! That’s good shooting. I couldn’t do that in twice the time and twice the number of shots.
Get the accuracy first! The fast part comes later. The first time I shot a practical match, they could have timed me in decimal minutes. Now that I’m crippled up enough to have a hard time moving, they could probably use a sun dial to time me now. But just like a bicycle, piano, or basket ball, you get better with practice, practice and some more practice.
I wish my work hours allowed me to shoot matches. It’s very addictive.
Rio Salado is a bigtime IPSC place while Phoenix Rod & Gun has a lot of IDPA stuff going on.
If anyone wants to see more cool stuff, search youtube for ACTS matches in Tucson.
whoa ! !
That guy’s not fat. Not compared to the TTAG staff anyhow!
I resemble that remark!
fitness is a defense strategy – I will choose flight over fight any time I can.
IPSC guns are awesome. Double stack compensated 1911’s running flat out fast.
However, you don’t have to have a race gun to shoot IPSC, my CZ75B did just fine. They have a production class for people like me that don’t want to run raceguns.
I had a BLAST!!!!
CS75B would be my recommendation for a starting point for a high-cap IPSC spray-down gun.
I want to see Karl do that at 400 yards.
Someday I’m going to learn to successfully do that “rack and catch the ejected round” move. I have so far been unsuccessful. The problem is you can only do it with a live round, because dummies don’t have the same weight and flight characteristics.
Find someone who reloads, and have them make you full weight dummy rounds. The power only weights a few grains, and if its that important include a few pellets of bird shot.
change fat to fast
Doesn’t seem too fat to me…but has some serious practice under his belt.
Hey I know that range… 🙂
Those Open Class guns are great – if you can get one whose mags aren’t giving them fits!
That’s interesting for its own sake, but I’d rather see it done with a gun that a person can carry on a regular basis, than with a Rooney gun.
I agree. I’d like to see it with a bone stock Glock 35 or Kimber 1911 (and I’mthrowing out guns I would use).
That being said, that guy is a hell of a shot!
Another issue is that he is likely using light target loads rather than self defense loads.
Can’t be too light or he would be having feeding problems with a semi-auto. (Unless it is HIGHLY tuned by a really good smith.)
Nope, and I’ll give you two reasons why.
1. Open guns won’t typically run right with even standard pressure loads, let alone “light target loads”.
2. In order to make major power factor, both .38 Super and 9mm must be loaded OVER SAAMI specs.
Face it; dude’s just a badass.
That’ll be me someday. I promise.
Re: the 4th video
“The content owner has not made this video available in mobile.”
I don’t know anything about YouTube back end, can someone explain this to me? Since most videos work just fine, I presume that’s something you have to turn off on purpose? What would be the reason for doing so?
P.S. Still getting “Comment publication failed” on every single comment I leave from phone. It’s lying; comments are posting fine.
ETA: LMAO! Except this one talking about it. First time in three weeks and 30+ comments that I’ve gotten the green check mark.
The New York City police department needs to make him an employment offer.
Better yet, if lots of citizens were armed and could shoot like that, I suspect it would really put a damper on the ambitions of criminals.
It’s just an extension of the old adage, “Don’t mess with the old guy doing tai chi in the park.”
