    Since there was a longest shot thread in the General Rifle Discussion area, I figured a longest handgun shot would be interesting.

    Mine is a [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO1zeJStZ60"]250 yard 357 shot on an 8 x 12" steel target[/ame], what is yours?

    I tried 300 the next day but couldn't hit it.

    Longest aimed shot: 318 yds. (laser ranged) with a 1913 era 5" Colt
    New Service in 38-40. Target was a 12x16 steel plate. I could hit it
    4 out of 6 on a good day. Aiming point was a tree limb above and a little
    left of the target.

    Longest shot: Little (maybe 12") piece of tree stump. Range at least
    800 yds. Gun was a 6" High Standard H-D Military .22. There was a
    big dirt hillside across a canyon. Little chunk of wood in the middle of it.
    I could see the bullet strikes and walked them in. No aiming point---
    the darned clouds were moving. Just a braced shooting position and watch
    the hits. Surprising how tight the "group" was when I found the range.

    Good grief why????

    I saw them shoot a baloon with a .38 snubbie at 200 yards on impossible shots the other night.

    I keep my targets 25yards or closer anything further I'll use a rifle.

    100yrds, 8x10 steel plate, prone position, glock 22, hit it on my second try. Happy has hell. But I agree, if I want to hit a target that far I go with my rifle. It is a cool thing to try to shot that far with a pistol.

    8" target at 100 yards w/ a Model 19-4 S&W .357. 6" barrel. Still my favorite wheelgun. I hunt w/ it also. A 158gr JSP over a little 296 is great on whitetail at 50 yards.

    50 yard 6" steel plate with glock 21. First shot on and farley consistent with others. I have not attempted any further. 50 yards is an acceptable distance to still shot a armed person.:rolleyes:

    I can't belive you would claim that. I can make a single hole at 2600 yards with a full mag from a glock 26.

    Your horse has a rearview mirror :confused: AWESOME:D


    Seriously though, mine is probably 40 yards. Why shoot at anything further? If you are beyond 40 yards, you are not a threat of mine

    Hit the 200 meter steel ram they use for metalic silhuette competition with my Wilson Combat .45 just to prove it could be done. First shot was a puff of dirt on the berm behind it, a small adjustment brought a very satisfying clang...

    175 yards at a 6" circle pained on a sheet of drywall, with a Taurus PT92 AFS.

    Shot was dead center, 3" below the circle.



    100 yards with my USP, no trouble hitting a silouhette steel.
    Pepsi cans at 100 with my old Ruger GP100 6".
    12 oz water bottle @ 100 with my Ruger Blackhawk .41 mag.


    The last two are pretty damned hard considering the target is smaller than the front sight.

    My best was an 6x8 steel plate @100 yd. TC Contender 45-70, with a scope. Don't shoot past 25 yds. with iron sights.
