Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. I went to sleep in my Queen shirt and woke up to find my mother hog tied on the floor.
  2. The video I saw was a heads up math between just the two shooters with half a dozen or so stages. There's a part of me that swears Mickey Fowler was the pistol shooter and and Ed McGivern was shooting the revolver. But I can't find any evidence they had such a match. I really want to study the revolver shooter. He was dead on accurate with the barrel just inches above the holster. Obviously a VERY practiced index and absolutely amazing how he was as fast and accurate shooting that way with a DA revolver.
  3. The video appeared to be from the mid 80s and there were spectators. I've searched pistol vs revolver and every name I could think of.
  4. Wasn't Jerry. Wasn't Mundon. Searched for Bill Jordan, no joy.
  5. A few years ago I saw a video on youtube of one of the older revolver greats shooting a sort of challenge match against a more modern great shooting a 1911. The revolver shooter was firing from the hip while the 1911 shooter used a modified Weaver. It was actually a pretty close match, drawing and firing on targets at about 25 feet if I remember correctly. I really want to watch the video again and study some things. Problem is I can't remember who the shooters were and I have searched for hours using different names but can't find the video again. Anyone know or have seen the video? Can you help me with a link or the shooter's names?
  6. A lot of people find frame mounted dots "easier to track" because it's not moving with the slide. Here's a news flash for you. You're not going to see the dot whole the gun is cycling anyway. And quite frankly, if you are, you're doing it all wrong. If you are focused on the dot transitioning to the next target you are going to overshoot the target and have to readjust. Once the shot fires I don't care where the sights go. My eyes are shifting to the next target and I bring the sights to my visual focus on the target. Believe it or not, if you have mastered your index, your body can FAR more easily stop your, gun with the sights aligned, on the target. Try this: Hold your arm out straight and point to something on the wall. Then track your finger to a chosen point on the opposite wall. Now do the same drill again but ignore where your finger is an visually acquire the second target as you turn. I'm betting the second way is quicker for you. And it is no different with a gun. Hardest part is mastering your index, which you should have done by now anyway.

  8. Folgers has many sizes. And Olive jars are great for primer storage.
