    That was a GREAT shot.

    I was impressed,yes he had a steady hold but that is still VERY,VERY good.

    I too hunt with a TC in .35 Rem and I am happy to see the pistol taken to such extremes with amazing results.

    MOA Maximum
    They are made in Sundance, WY.
    Rich Mertz used to live in Ohio and made them there but has been in Wyoming for around 7 years.
    On my I phone now but google MOA Corporation Sundance WY and you will find the website.

    Very good. In the video I couldn't get an eyeball on it/it wasn't really shown.. I think.
    Thanks.

    Quite a shot! I didn't realize MOA was still around.Sundance isn't too far away...might be worth a trip.

    DISCLAIMER: I'm not a regular hunter
    and
    I'm about to be "that guy"

    Let me preface by saying that was a killer shot. Nice, ethical, and clean. However, wouldn't you have had a better chance of a clean kill by using a rifle? I know people like to say "but it's cooler to use a handgun!" but professional shooters don't use handguns to make critical life-saving shots. So why a handgun.

    Again, I know it was a great shot.

    Valid question.
    I will attempt to answer it well.
    First, I am not protecting the lives of others or taking out bad guys from distance. So quick shots or follow up shots are not a requirement for me to be proficient.
    Second, I just like handguns of all kinds, especially the SP's.
    Third, I will shoot any day with a rifle from field positions or from the bench for that matter out to and beyond 1k with one of my specialty pistols.
    Fourth, I am willing and have competed in LR tactical matches with steel targets out to and beyond 1000 yards against rifles using my specialty handguns, and have done very well FWIW.
    Last, for the first time in a long time I have acquired a couple of rifles. One of which, isn't up and running yet.
    I don't feel handicapped using a SP.

    B33,
    Are you a HOG?

    Thanks for kudos on the shot, but I thought it was a pretty easy shot.
    I typically begin practicing at 500 yards

    I have seen people make worse shots at shorter distances with rifles:uhoh:. I think it all depends on the skill level of the shooter with the weapon they are using. It appears from the video that the OP is pretty skilled with his weapon of choice

    What is HOG? My initial guess is "hater of guns"??

    I didn't realize the barrel was 14" and after you explained your proficiency with long range shots with that piece, I understand why humping that around would be advantageous over a rifle.

    It is not a deragotory word.
    HOG=Hunter Of Gunmen or Sniper.
    I am not one and have never been one, but I just enjoy shooting at distance.
