WOW!!!

Reminds me of the days (the 60's) when SA shooters were going for pure speed,

from the hip with Colt .45 SAA's.

They used to use wax bullets and primers, and shoot at balloons, in remarkably

fast times (remember Thell Reed?).

But, this guy is incredible. :bow: :bow:

Wonder how he'd do vs Jerry?

Thanks for sharing - incredible. :cheers:

That is impressive! Being able to walk and using both hands point shoot at will different targets at various distances...wow!

I had to look his name up - Vitaly Kryuchin - a very active IPSC shooter in Russia. He has done pretty well at several world shoots, and has been MD and the Russian Representative to IPSC.

I wonder if he ever shoots steel challenge type stuff?

Wax bullets with 209 shotshell primers... Used for head to head fast draw competition.

Shooting at balloons in either mounted shooting or fast draw demonstration shooting uses black powder blanks, the coarse REAL black powder has a shotgun effect. Think about any cowboy mounted shooting event, sweeping the whole audience and your mount all the time. Nothing but Fffg in those pistols

I don't remember Bob Munden???

Rod Redwing used to throw a knife at a target, draw a SAA .45 and fire a bullet that

created a hole for the knife to hit. :surprise: But, that was a real bullet ...

There was a real Texas Ranger - can't think of his name - used to hold an aspirin

tablet on the back of his strong hand, go for his .357 S&W and hit the aspirin

before it hit the ground - he wrote a book "No 2nd place winner". Anyone remember

his name?

Bill Jordan

Right. He was fantastic also.

And there was a real old guy, shaped like a penguin, who was

probably as good as Jerry, but 50 years earlier - can't remember

his name either - wrote the book on shooting two S&W's and

hitting small targets Very Fast (less than a second, for 12

shots). :cheers:

Ed McGivern. He could shoot one handed with a revolver, 6 golf ball sized clay targets thrown in the air and break them all before any hit the ground.

Ed McGivern was the man!! The things that he did. I read a book about him about 1980. He could shoot tape out of the center of a washer in the air. He said anyone could do it it just takes practice. Some people just have a gift. He would practice with his wife swinging a washer on a string. Many other accomplishments too many to mention here. Look him up and read about him.

Interesting to see what "we" find impressive as far as shooting goes.

Yes, the Russian show is very cool but....

Taran shoots entire pistol matches from the hip (yes they are generally close and hose'em events) but form the freekin hip, in front of other competitors!

Ed McGivern could do things that are not from this world, but alas HE is not on social media nor does the long dead man have a youtube channel.

Bob Munden (also dead) was a amazing talent with many handgun tricks outside of pure speed.

Jerry Miculek is the current King of Cool with many outrageous exhibition shots.

Herb Parsons....Herb Parsons! That guy was a rifle and shotgun wizard of epic proportions! And an incredible entertainer!

Tom Knapp! Shotgun master..yes! But he shot rifle and pistols to impress as well!

Under appreciated Uber talent....Tim Bradley! The stuff he did BEFORE getting pick up by Benelli has mucho WOW factor!

Ad Topperwen. (sp?) look that Cat up! One of his many tricks was shooting (drawing with 22 bullets) faces in sheet tin!

22 plinkster. Very very talented! Did I say very?

Then you have some 3-gun dude who with an AR hits pepper poppers backwards with a mirror at 200 and 300 yards.
