Geekologie I Watch Stuff The Superficial

Man Hits Target From 1,000 Yards With Revolver

revolver-long-shot.jpg

This is a video of famed shooter Jerry Miculek popping a balloon with a special edition (named after him) 9mm Smith &Wesson revolver from 1,000 yards (~ 914-meters, 3000-feet, ~3/5 of a mile). Jerry says he had to compensate for about 150 feet of bullet drop during its 4-second journey downrange. It's weird because I actually watched this video yesterday then last night I DREAMED I was in a long-distance shooting competition. "How'd you do?" Two shots in my foot and I accidentally killed a friend.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Swordmaster, who clearly isn't scared to bring a blade to a gunfight.

    I still think you're cool major

    I call BS. Even giving a very optimistic MV of 1000fps, at 600 yds the drop would be 320 feet.

    The remaing velocity at 1000 yds would be near zero.

  • Ralph

    Jerry doesn't do any fake videos.

  • Beanhimself

    Hot +P 9mm ammo can shoot 1500fps or more.

  • JJ

    Agreed.....BS. Plus hes not hitting the balloon. The 'point of impact' was nowhere near the balloon. The balloon popped from lead splatter off the plate.

  • Superior_Joe

    What is this genius doing on the target range? He needs to strap that peacemaker on the outside of his clothes and stride proudly into a Chipotle or Red Robin.

    I once popped the cherry of this girl I had a crush on in high school. Not unlike the balloon she too was 1,000 yards away from me. What do you mean it wasn't me that did it? I shot my load in her direction, didn't I?

  • ProphetFlume

    Did you aim higher to compensate for the drop?

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Maybe he missed the girl and it actually went in the direction of a horse.

    woooooie HA HAW!

    Hey Geekologie writer.. he didnt say he had to aim 150ft above the target he said the bullet dropped 150ft. Just because he aimed 75-80 yards above the target doesnt mean the bullet reached that height.. its called gravity.

  • James Sterlington

    well actually, GW never said he aimed 150 ft above the target. He said "Jerry says he had to compensate for about 150 feet of bullet drop during its 4-second journey downrange." Key word there is "compensate"

  • Forty2

    Haha that's cause he fixed it. It didn't say that when I posted that comment.

  • Superior_Joe

    Of course you're right. Also, I am LeBron James.

  • captain kringle

    that balloon never had a chance!

  • Superior_Joe

    This just proves that all balloons should be armed.

  • Vlad

    Give that baloon a gun to make it fair.

  • Beanhimself

    Not to point out the obvious but he's standing on a grassy knoll shooting at a target far away as if he has done it before...

  • James Sterlington

    not to point out the obvious, but that balloon was not shaped like a giraffe.

  • ZerglingPack

    I love how in your mind that's the obvious point. :P
