Probably, why not? Looks like an 18" gong, which equates to a 4.5" group at 30 yards.

Since he's shooting a 9mm, it really isn't that difficult...it isn't like he needs to factor in holdover

THAT IS EASY. No big deal at all.

Judging by the scenery and the accent I'd say that the guy in the video is not more than an hour from my house.


..and the shooting was competent but not particularly impressive.

This is way more impressive, to me at least - The action starts around the 2:45 mark

**Edit**
For those of you who can't/don't want to watch, the video is hickok45 shooting a Glock 23 and hitting a target at 230 yards

Brandon has a video where he uses a .22lr pistol to hit a gong almost a quarter mile away, off hand.

I play around at the range and I can hit a dinner size paper plate @50 yards with a J frame .38 Special revolver. You can teach yourself almost anything if you practice enough and forget about those who tell you it can't be done. It's great to see the faces of those who call a J frame a "belly gun" when you put a whole bunch of holes in a plate 150 feet away instead of only 1 foot away...

Try nearly hitting a target with a .45 at 420 yards.

Are you kidding me??!!! I can't even see a target out @420 yards with open sights! How the heck can you hit what you can't see? :banghead:

Ah, the fabled Kentucky Windage technique in action.

That was his practice session for shooting with shorter barrel Glock 27 at 230 yards. :D

Not long ago, I posted about hitting a steel target at 100 yds with sightless .25 pocket autos.

It's not as hard as many folks seem to think.

So YOU are the guy putting the dents in my warehouse?

Well, the 100 yd target is an IPSC turtle target, so no.

Someone else must be denting it!
