I used to shoot pistols. I was very good…but then again I put literally thousands of rounds down range and shot almost every Saturday and Sunday.
I shot so much that I’d spend the rest of the week reloading.
One comment I always got when someone asked about pistol shooting was that they believed that pistols weren’t very accurate. My response was that pistols are in fact very accurate, it is the shooter who isn’t accurate.
I could put 6 rounds from my S&W model 10 into the target so that an old 50 cent piece could cover the holes…at 50m. I could do this because I’d shoot thousands of rounds at that range and I knew my load, my gun and the range intimately.
The professionals shoot even more and as a consequence can perform feats like this…A Glock .45ACP hitting a steel target at 215 years!
But then again this is Jerry Miculek…one of the greatest pistol shooters alive.
