Reply RKflorida says: August 29, 2012 at 21:20 Sheesh! That’s good shooting. I couldn’t do that in twice the time and twice the number of shots. Reply bontai Joe says: August 30, 2012 at 11:54 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. Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 21:27 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.

Not compared to the TTAG staff anyhow! Reply Robert Farago says: August 29, 2012 at 23:37 I resemble that remark! Reply Michael Bluth says: August 30, 2012 at 13:50 fitness is a defense strategy – I will choose flight over fight any time I can. Reply irock350 says: August 29, 2012 at 22:16 IPSC guns are awesome. Double stack compensated 1911’s running flat out fast. Reply Other Derek says: August 29, 2012 at 22:20 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!!!! Reply Dyspeptic Gunsmith says: August 29, 2012 at 23:04 CS75B would be my recommendation for a starting point for a high-cap IPSC spray-down gun. Reply John Fritz says: August 29, 2012 at 22:19 I want to see Karl do that at 400 yards. Reply Matt in FL says: August 29, 2012 at 22:43 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. Reply matt says: August 30, 2012 at 02:10 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. Reply Alec says: August 29, 2012 at 22:46 change fat to fast Reply Robert Farago says: August 29, 2012 at 23:34 Done. Reply MotoJB says: August 29, 2012 at 23:21 Doesn’t seem too fat to me…but has some serious practice under his belt. Reply Patrick Carrube says: August 30, 2012 at 00:07 Hey I know that range… 🙂 Those Open Class guns are great – if you can get one whose mags aren’t giving them fits! Reply Greg Camp says: August 30, 2012 at 00:43 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. Reply Accur81 says: August 30, 2012 at 00:58 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! Reply matt says: August 30, 2012 at 02:11 Another issue is that he is likely using light target loads rather than self defense loads. Reply IdahoPete says: August 30, 2012 at 14:02 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.) Moonshine7102 says: August 30, 2012 at 14:10 @matt: 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.

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? Reply Matt in FL says: August 30, 2012 at 10:11 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. uncommon_sense says: August 30, 2012 at 11:16 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. Reply Jason says: August 30, 2012 at 13:17 It’s just an extension of the old adage, “Don’t mess with the old guy doing tai chi in the park.” Reply Write a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
