Beware the Old Fast White Guy. That Is All.

    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.

    1. avatar bontai Joe says:

      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.

    That guy’s not fat. Not compared to the TTAG staff anyhow!

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      I resemble that remark!

      1. avatar Michael Bluth says:

        fitness is a defense strategy – I will choose flight over fight any time I can.

  5. avatar irock350 says:

    IPSC guns are awesome. Double stack compensated 1911’s running flat out fast.

    1. avatar Other Derek says:

      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!!!!

      1. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

        CS75B would be my recommendation for a starting point for a high-cap IPSC spray-down gun.

  6. avatar John Fritz says:

    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.

    1. avatar matt says:

      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

  9. avatar MotoJB says:

    Doesn’t seem too fat to me…but has some serious practice under his belt.

  10. avatar Patrick Carrube says:

    Hey I know that range… 🙂

    Those Open Class guns are great – if you can get one whose mags aren’t giving them fits!

  11. avatar Greg Camp says:

    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.

    1. avatar Accur81 says:

      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!

      1. avatar matt says:

        Another issue is that he is likely using light target loads rather than self defense loads.

        1. avatar IdahoPete says:

          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.)

        2. avatar Moonshine7102 says:


          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.

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        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?

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          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.

  12. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    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.”
