this series is a hoot if you haven't checked it out yet.

shooting starts about 19:45, but the history is also fascinating. Better than anything on TV IMO.

I love the 2nd comment "So the 1911 has three modes, single shot, burst, Miculek"

Thing that kills me is the .16 splits on two outside targets. The man is a robot.

I agree, M-Cameron.....I wouldn't even guess he is shooting .45 if I didn't know better. Just incredible.

Is he shooting 45 ACP? I know he shoots 9mm 1911's a lot.

With either one that is incredible!

I agree with 1KPerDay, he's a robot!

He shoots both in the video.

Jerry is amazing.

What I really admire is the discipline it must take to reach the level that he has. That kind of shooting does NOT come from just raw talent--it comes with a lifetime of hard WORK.

I watched him shoot at the Surefire Texas Multigun championship and watching him shoot in person is absolutely incredible...

You're right. He's only slightly above average on his home planet... :D

I am amazed everytime I see his videos.

"So what do you think guys? The old man can shoot a pistol." :D


At one of the local USPSA matches, an "old guy" showed up with a revolver and moon clips. Some of the match shooters giggled/snickered as he went to the start box and I was expecting him to go, "bang ... bang ... bang ..." slow fire but when the timer went off, it was a machinegun like "bang/bang, bang/bang, bang/bang ... moon clip change in a blink of an eye ... bang/bang, bang/bang, bang/bang ... etc." Everyone's jaw dropped!

He shot faster with his revolver than us with our semi-autos ... and his double shots were tight and his stage times were faster than ours! After he finished shooting, I immediately offered him a beverage and asked, "How did you do that?" He smiled and said, "A lot of practice, son." I became an instant pupil and oh my, the stories he told!

He. Is. Not. Human.

He has a clip where he shoots the M1 Garand uber fast. Now that is quite impressive.

Skip to 11:10 if you dont have the patience:

He does manage to stove-pipe his last round on the first string.

In the video he said that Browning included an external extractor "in the Browning Hi-Power of 1935".

I didn't think external extractors were added to Hi Powers until the 1960's (they used internal before that). If that's the case I don't see that John Browning would have had anything to do with that decision.

Yep - Jerry's terrific with a revolver, but many don't realize he shoots a 1911 pretty well, too.

BTW, not taking anything away from his skill, but y'all do realize he's bump-firing that 1911 at the 22:00 segment don't you?

Not really bumpfiring... he's fanning the trigger. But yes.

Imagine if he actually trained regularly on the 1911. Wow. Impressive.
