Jerry Miculek isn’t a shooter. He’s a force of ballistically-enhanced nature. An inspiration to OFWGs whose chronologically-degraded eyesight and relative lack of talent make Jerry’s feats of marksmanship seem less attainable than a date with Nina Agdal. I’m not quite sure why Jerry isn’t more famous outside the firearms fraternity. It could be something to do with his last name (spelling and pronunciation issues, not racism). Maybe it’s because he doesn’t look like Kirsten Weiss. Or appear in a carefully scripted reality show where he does stuff that’s never been done before! Anyway, if you’re not familiar with JM’s [surprisingly unsponsored] YouTube channel prepare to lose productivity. Or gain productivity, as he has a Leghornian knack for explaining basic stuff to both shooting newbies and more experienced gun guys.
He keeps calling it a TAR-21 in his vids, like lots of people seem to be doing in various reviews online, but we don’t have those in the U.S. haha. IWI US sells the SAR, which stands for Semi Automatic Rifle. TAR-21 stands for Tavor Assault Rifle, 21st Century and is, as its name implies, select fire (full auto).
….just throwin’ that out there. No idea why, really.
The gamers recognize tar21 better. Plus to be honest it sounds cooler.
So those slow, electronic-sounding impulses were vastly slowed-down shots? That sounds SO cool.
Mind the gap.
Awesome comment. Or not.
Have you ever heard that a comment someone make usually applies better to the commenter than it does to the target? Probably not or else you’d STFU more often.
I was just confused.
My favorite videos of Jerry
–> 27 rounds in 3.7 seconds with a 1911
–> World Record 12 Shots In Under 3 Seconds
There is another video where he literally “throws” the moon clip into the revolver and I swear he is the process of closing the cylinder as the moon clip is just going in.
Look up titles at Youtube so nobody gets pissed at the embedding
Nice to see some fellow Chivers here. I like the redhead galleries and deffinatley want moar!
KCCO is more likely a reference to Keep Calm and Carry On. Possibly also a play on that original phrase common in the firearms community, Keep Calm and Carry One (a gun). Not so much the chive on reference you were hoping for.
JM is one of my all time favorite shooting heroes…I aspire to his skill and speed. Got to meet him once, and he was just as cool in person as he is on video…just a guy…who can shoot like hell!
When Jerry is at a match, everybody else competes for Second Place.
Not an ounce of tacticool, over-juiced bull with this guy. Good stuff.
Gotta like Jerry. Always smiling. Would love to take a class with him. To quote the great Waylon Jennings, “Just a good ole boy” and a great shooter.
And for those who are not familiar with Jerry’s abilities, that was a SEMI-automatic carbine he was shooting – even though it sounded nearly full auto. Sounds the same when he is shooting a revolver. I am not entirely sure he is from this planet, given his speed and accuracy with dang near anything that goes bang.
And, with all due respect, let’s also point out that our hero Jerry is still rocking it as an older guy…I mean…how old is he? He has to be 65, at least?
He outshoots most of humanity.
That’s a killer observation.
Man, if it weren’t so hard to find 5.56 in my area, I might have sprung for the Tavor instead of a 70″ TV.. Maybe things will improve by Kwanzaa..
Between him and Hickock, like a fine wine, it appears good shooters only get better with age.
Which crimson trace grip did you use and how did you attach it without a rail underneath? My SAR just came in and that is exactly what I am looking for. Thanks!
