A 22 LR from a 22" barrel drops 6" at 100 yards and the wind really pushes a 22 LR bullet. If they could do that with a 22/45 they would be smashing all olympic records. Don't believe everything you hear online. No one hanging out in an internet forum can out shoot every olympic shooter in the history of modern firearms.
Sorry to burst your bubble, John, but we're not all armchair quarterbacks. I used to shoot 9 of 10 soda cans at 100 yards with my Colt Challenger, routinely, & had witnesses to boot.
