It is good to see how much we have evolved the shooting of a handgun. I am interested to see where we are in another 60+ years.

If we use the European and Australian models, we won't be shooting anything in 60 years.

Of course, I'll be 128 years old, so they'd have to create another category for me - I'm a Super Senior

now, so I guess I'll be a Super Duper Senior by the year 2073:)

Two things I noticed:

1) At 4:50 to about 5:15 they basically said the grip of a Glock, which mimics the wrist position of that revolver, is superior to the 1911. :surprise:

2) Watching the guy shoot tracers in the beginning.. the 830fps is surprisingly slow (I've only seen rifle round tracers before).

I DQ'd him at :53 when he swept his arm on the draw, but in that day and age personal safety wasn't a priority. Heck when we were children we worked with farm and logging equipment. I really miss those days though.
