One of my kids is a superb pistol shot. I have seen him shoot clay targets at about 100 yards with a heavy barrel Ruger 22 pistol. But they are about 4" and he missed sometimes. I'm sure many people are a better shot than him so if the bullseye was 3" or 4" I would say its possible(but I would have my doubts).

Without support, I'd say that is absolutely amazing. With my 8" Raging Bull, standing unsupported, I've hit a 12" gong at 100 yards with 6/6 shots, though usually it was more like 4 hits out of 6.

But, I'd be far more impressed with him as a shooter than the gun or the cartridge. I know there are people shooting 3-4" groups with .22 target pistols, but that's from a rest and often with a scope. I'd almost think you'd have to die and develop rigor mortis before you're body was still enough to pull that off without support :P .

Too funny!

With my 22/45 at the indoor range, I sent the target down to 75' and fired off a shot... bad lighting, dark back drop, etc. I'm looking and don't see anything, so I ask SWMBO if she can see where I hit... She thinks I missed the paper Damned if i didn't hit it dead center... but that was ONE out of about 50 holes in the paper

my dad used to be able to put about 75% hits on a beer can at 100 yards with his 9 inch barrelled Ruger mark II, with a scope, from a standing position.

Using that same gun, i'm not quite there yet. maybe a basketball at that distance

I set up two 4" clays at 100 yards,shot 2 rounds freehanded with my ruger mk3,4" barrel/stock open sights and took them both out.But that was once and I have never,ever been able to repeat it again.I can hit 75% of a 1" circle myself------------from 7 yards!
