I was lucky enough to go on a PRactical pistol course at Bisley in 1993 coached by the legendary Jerry Mculek... made a 686 / 627 sound like a Thompson....

Awesome, I fancied him like fcuk :D

Was that a 'bog standard' pistol or one rigged to fire auto? Doesn't matter either way really, it's amazing shooting in anyone's book! 8O

Jerry Mculek used a Smith & Wesson Mod 627 back then, it was a straight out the box bity of kit alledgedly but I had my doubts.

Being a gobby cnut and calling his bluff I handed him my Smith Mod 686 and fcuk me if he didn't do the same again... my pistol, my ammo (.38 spec), my gun belt and ..... he is a fcuking god, I want his underpants. :D

I'm glad someone has posted the video, when you describe what these fellas can do with a revolver they think you are bluffing.

That was some shooting.

Those crazy Mericans and their liberable gun laws.

There are a few different diciplines but the falling plates are about 12 x 12 inch (could be wrong) you stand at about 15m away and they fall as quickly as these fellas can put the trigger, and thats fcuking quick.

Jerry Mculek once beat Bob Dunkley at the falling plate...... Bob was using an auto (1911 custom)

I maintain he is a god and I want gay love with him :D

Apparently all he'd had done to the pistol is that the trigger had been smoothed out & lightened a bit. In any case, you can't rig a S&W revolver to go full-auto without a motor. I've heard of Webley-Fosberries going full-auto, but they go quite slowly.

Ed McGivern was even better:

The choice for "Best Handgunne Shooter" is the easiest selection of the three to make. Most authorities agree that the incomparable Ed McGivern was the best handgunner that ever lived. Some of his feats have never been duplicated, and his achievements have been recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. Using an ordinary Smith & Wesson double action revolver, he could break six simultaneously hand thrown clay pigeons (standard trap targets) in the air, before any of them could hit the ground. He once fired 5 shots in 2/5 of a second [that's 1500 rpm, or more than an MG42!!!] , a record that has never been broken. He was also a master of the single action revolver and the autoloading pistol, but preferred the double action (police style) revolver because he could operate it faster than the autoloading pistol operated itself! Ed McGivern wrote a book called Fast and Fancy Revolver Shooting, which tells exactly how he did what he did (no tricks, just superb reflexes and years of intensive practice). Read his book and start practicing, and you, too, can be a fast and fancy revolver shooter! Ed was born in 1874, and wrote his famous book in 1938.

The fosberry although good fun and a classic was useless.

I once considered using it in the falling plate but it simply didn't cycle fast enough.

Got £1900 compo for it whan the slags took em off us :D
