Here's a video with a freshly sighted in .22 at 50 yards.

Recently I've been shooting small steel plates at 100, I may make a video one day and post it, too.

From what I read in this post, it looks like 150 yard + is where the fun starts. Need to to try that.

2 months ago I took a friend to the range and I was using my 686. He was trying to hit a full can of red bull at about 75 yards to see if he could hit it. He missed 12 times. On my very first shot I lined up the front post a little high and I hit it. I know it was a lucky shot and I would have trouble doing it again off hand for the 1st shot but I played it off like I knew I would hit it the whole time.

Off hand, we piss off rifle shooters who tinker all day with their scopes trying to hit a 400 yard 16x24 plate that all I can see is the glare at 2pm on a sunny day. Friend and I lobbed 230gr MIL-SPEC .45 ball ammo at it. There's a good 3-4 second delay on the ping. Rifle shooter asks how both of us did it. My buddy said like this! And he hit that plate 5 of 8 shots. I missed 3x but hit it 5 in a row after.

the rifle guys so pissed they left! Now. Put me on the clock with 14 yard SCSA plates and my draw is over 1.20 and I may miss the first big plate!

I shot a 20oz. Coke bottle off the post that hols the 100yd target board with a Para 9mm LDA. On the first try. Pure accident but cool nonetheless. Got a wittness. Wish I had a video...

^ Pure luck, but it did happen.

My farthest shot was a melon sized rock at about 150yds with a .41 magnum Blackhawk, iron sights. Hit it on the third shot.

And it was witnessed

That is friggin hilarious!!! THe problem is at 100 or less off hand I might actually shoot better groups with a pistol :surprise:

I know a guy that hit a bird at 200M with an old wilson 1911. I was there, he took my $$ :o

Not the longest, but the bestest for me......

I hit 3 orange clays at 55 yards with 7 shots using my 5" Tripp STI standing freestyle. That schuemann barrel is the nuts.

I shot 100 yard La Rue at Taran's range with him and Michael Rooker. Took me awhile to figure it out then it was a pretty regular occurrence, 4 of 5, 7 of 10. Taran did 9 for 9 once he had it zoned in. 1911 in .40 S&W with a Kart barrel built by Tripp.

I have not tried anything farther out but now my curiosity is cooking. If the weather is nice on Friday I may try.

I've hit a gallon milk jug out around 300+ yards with a 4" .44 mag, but it took me a cylinder or so to get the elevation and of course even then the hits were only about 20%, but I scared it a lot. :D

Better was when I was working as an RO and some guys I knew were shooting at bowling pins at 200 yards with scoped rifles (and not doing so great). I was teasing them about missing such and easy target, they said "Oh yeah, YOU try." I pulled out my SIG P220 and sat down at the bench. I took two to get the elevation (which was tough because we had overhead baffles) and the next three rounds wacked the pin. I holstered and walked away. B)

My best "one of" was probably on a 'yote, quartering way running flat out at "200 yards" (laser ranged at 198 yards afterward). Of course that pistol had a scope and a bottle necked wildcat round.

I shot a 3 gun in October that had a stage with 100 and 200 yard steel for pistol. At 200 yards, there was a 16x16 steel, and the final shot was a 4" spinner. I was really surprised at how easy it was to hit. The 4" spinner took two tries, but all the others I got in the first shot.

I remember hearing about Dave Sevigny a few years ago doing a 1 shot draw to an IPSC target at 200 yards in 1.3 seconds.

Seems doable. might take me a mag or 2 or 10, but sooner or later I could get it done, haha

I keep dope on my Derringer out to 500. I have to point it up at about a 45 degree angle but you just never know when you're gonna have to go to you 4th backup gun. Plus these MD's in 3 gun are throwing all kinds of weird scenarios and prop guns at us nowadays.

I used to live next door to a hunt club. They had a wobble trap thrower mounted under a tower that was used for warmup for the hunters. You could stop the movement both up and down and throw the bird in one position. I would use my Kimber 45 and try hitting the clay birds in the air. It took me quite a few shots to hit the first one but after figuring out where to aim I could do it more often. More often meaning maybe 1 in 25. I thought that wasn't that bad. Bshooter.

That's pretty awesome.I wonder where the hold over was? Top of head at that distance? That would be a fun thing to try!
