Hey. I shot off the left half of a fruit fly's wing with my 357 mag using 165 gr, tulammo, 1/2 metal jacket at 250 yrd's while aiming over my right shoulder. My blind cousin Timmy is my witness.

Your 35 yard shot with a 45 is believable but a 1.5 inch cluster at 100 yards with a 357 mag more than once, by luck, is well. Do you believe in the tooth fairy?

I was reading African Hunting last night and there was a story of a British Army Col. whom at the club claimed he bagged a 12-foot tiger. An angler then said he caught a 3/4 acre bass. The Col. challenged him to a duel! The angler responded that if the Col. would care to take two feet off his tiger he'd see what he could do about the bass...

please don't go there as suggested! next he'll cloud the issue with all his skills and then start posting all his videos of him shooting and then bring a bunch of useless knowledge that further clouds things and confuses everyone, and we still never get a clear and direct answer.

Yea that is awful good shooting he shoots groups like that he should be competing lol , but im not for calling people liar,s he says he can do it ,im not gonna argue , i may say i would love to see that done now lol , but not gonna call him a liar,maybe he can? is kind of stretching it i agree but not impossible.i will never be that good thats like jerry miculek level he should be shooting tourneys he can, he would be famous . But i can most deff hit a 15 inch circle at 35 with my .45 wont be 1 moa tho.

One of the 40cal Glock models with a 9mm conversion barrel. That way you can shoot two popular Cals out the same gun with a simple 5 second barrel swap!

Preferably a Glock 23.

I like the revolver idea, but I think the round capacity of a semi auto outweighs the simplicity of a revolver in a SHTF situation. Especially if your SHTF situation involved a fire fight, like an active shooter which is my most likely SHTF scenario being a first responder in law enforcement.

Your talking 13 to 16 rounds in a Glock 22 and 23 before you need to reload Vs. 5 to 7 rounds in a revolver.
For my Glock .23 I carry two extra 13 round mags that are issued to me. On top of that I carry an additional two 15 round mags on my person. So that's 70 rounds with my +1 in the chamber with only 4 reloads for my primary weapon.
