I watched "Extreme Marksmen" on the History channel tonight...they had Tom Knapp, Jerry Miculek, Byron Ferguson, and a few others on there.

Anyway...Jerry Miculek used both hands to see how fast he could empty a 10 round mag from a 1911...according to the shot timer it came out to be 674 rounds per minute. He emptied the mag in way less than 1 second (don't remember the exact time), all I could distinguish was the sound of 5 shots, but in slow motion you can count the brass...which were flying out of there about 4 inches apart, all 10 of them.

I knew the 1911 was a fast shooter...but I never suspected it could cycle that fast.

I thought that was pretty neat...:gun;

I agree. That certainly was a great show. Some of the shooting was beyond my belief.:eek:

I really wonder if they are shooting fullhouse defense loads or light loads w/ real light springs.

I wondered that also, but then some of the top revolver shooters can empty the cylinder pretty darn fast too.

That's a God-given talent right there. Like any top-level athlete, there's those that have it naturally and are made better with practice, and some of us will never shoot that well no matter how many rounds we fire.

As fast as Jerry is, Bob Munden is faster. Tracy

Well on my best day ever x25 I could never come close to those guys. But then again I train for two shots and a follow up, and that is a different drill altogether. Are they using lighter loads lighter triggers I don't know, but they are fun to watch.
