    That man sucks. He can't do firearms to save his life. He ... uh ...

    You know, some days I just feel so inadequate. All the more so, after watching him do his magic with sidearms.

    Oh, come on, he is just another internet wannabe. He does all that fancy stuff with cameras, smoke an mirrors.

    You reckon how many rounds that old fart has fired in his life?

    That whole family is gifted when it comes to firearms. And practice, practice, practice, plus competing! Of course with all the free guns and ammunition it would be much easier. However, not taking any credit away from Jerry his Wife and Daughter they are also fantastic. I had his Brother in one of my LE Schools several years ago in Louisiana and he is no slouch either. Not at Jerry's par but impressive when it comes to his skill and knowledge.:)

    I knew not to flip a cylinder into the piece, aware that it would cause damage, but this is the first good description of why, and to what. I have been trying to decide that when I close the cylinder if i have been doing it from the bottom. From now on I will be cognizant of that.

    Thanks for the informative post!

    Yeah, he's fairly accomplished.

    As for how many rounds fired in his lifetime? Gotta be north of several million, I'd bet. In 30+ years, I've probably done 100K, give or take.

    You are probably right, he probably shot more value of ammo, than I earned in my working career. It is nice to have sponsors. I don't begrudge him a bit, he earned every bit of it, along my my sincere respect and admiration.
