    "Jelly" Bryce was an Oklahoma cop and an FBI agent in the 1920's and 1930's.
    This man was fast.Like Bruce Lee fast.Only he used a .44 instead of a 1 inch punch.

    His draw and fire was clocked at two-fifths of a second.
    He killed 3 men in his first year as a cop,all of whom had the drop on him.

    His story is worth a read not only for its value as entertainment (I'm sure we all love hearing of the old time gunfighters),but you could learn something as well.

    Here it is-

    Two of my point shooter heroes, Jelly Bryce and Bill Jordan! ("We don't need no stinkin' sights!)

    In today's PC climate, Jelly would be on 'Administration Leave' while being investigated for shooting too many BG's.

    I knew Bill Jordan personally. I was in High School the last time I saw him, and he was truly amazing to watch. I miss that old man...

    Seeing is Believing.....

    Loved the read. But watch your back when you say that you can see the bullet as it goes to the target. There are nay sayers on this sight that say it's impossible. I guess they're just jealous. :eek::)

    Nay sayers

    This is what I like about the people on this site. The ones that will admitt, and the ones that try to change what they meant. I feel sorry for the chineese american that just logged on. People cut his throat because he said certain things on this site!!! Give him the same respect you all would expect. HELL I LOVE CHINEESE FOOD. Can't we all get along and Kill the Enemy.:eek::)

    For anyone who is interested in learning more here is a link to Legendary Lawman: The Story of Quick Draw Jelly Bryce, by Ron Owens. Ron Owens is a retired Captain from the Oklahoma City Police Department who also authored Oklahoma Justice, a history of the OCPD and Oklahoma Heroes, and accounting of officer killed in the line of duty in Oklahoma.

    Bryce is also the inspiration for the character D.A. Parker in the excellent fiction novel Hot Springs by Stephen Hunter.
