with Smith and Wesson 929-pretty amazing- that is 3000 feet
I was about to start looking up drops for 9mm at 1000 yards, but then he says it.....75-80 YARDS above the target. Anyone else and I'd immediately call B.S., but Miculek is an insanely good shooter and I'm sure he'd been setting this up and had a good idea where to aim. Pretty incredible anyways.
EDIT: Actual drop per the hornady ammo specs would be 78.4 yards at 1000 yards.
That is amazing.
That's a hell of a shot. Just to show you how I don't keep up I didn't know they made a 9mm in a revolver..
Why would anyone want a 9mm revolver?
Because they don't make a 10mm ......
But wait, guns are only designed to kill. Poor balloon.
ever been salmon fishing on an Alaskan stream and had a grizzly bear walk up on you? When you have to cut your line and run and watch the bear take the fish you were fighting you begin to think about the type of knock down power you would need if you didn't see him coming soon enough.
I sure as hell wouldn't want a 9mm in that situation.
The whole advantage of revolvers is that they can handle the big pistol magnum cartridges. That being the case, why would I pick a cartridge that's on the small side even for a semi-auto?
Is this supposed to be an argument for or against 9mm?
9 mm too small for gris...need 44 mag.
I would prefer a jet pack.
It appears a Justin Bieber song works too!
Any discussion that revolves around the type of handgun I need in order to keep myself from being accosted by a Grizzly is right up there with how to carry all of my money in the middle of the night in downtown Detroit. Maybe the discussion is kind of useless, if you are worried about self preservation. JMHO
So, in order to pull off this feat, he had to set up the target and then aim at a point 78.4 yards up (I guess even higher since he is aiming up and not to the horizon). A pole with a bulls-eye 78 yards (234 feet) higher than the target? Against a high-rise building? Kind of a weird attempt.
But these go to 11...
Quick Google search suggests that it's because the short length of the 9mm cartridge allows faster reload times (using moon clips), and it's an inexpensive round which is important for competitive shooters due to the amount they shoot.
In the video he says he was using the bottom edge of the red dot sight he was using. Definitely a weird attempt, and even more impressive. For most people that'd be a huge challenge even using a high powered rifle and optic.
