Pistol Shot connects with Bad Guy at 165 yards. Holy…. (Updated)

Gun Owner Saves Cop’s Life by Shooting Deranged Gunman! (VIDEO) – Gun News at Guns.com.

Stacy raised his gun, fired, and landed one hell of a shot – by his estimate “a good 165 yards” – with a pistol (we do not know the make or caliber at this time). Stacy wasn’t even sure if he could make the shot at that distance: “I hope this magnum bullet’ll hold up, you know, this distance. And sure enough it did and I hit him in the thigh.”

My hat is off to the gentleman.

 

UPDATE: The gun was a .357 Magnum. More info here.

  1. M. Stacy, way to go in doing the right thing in helping your neighbors! This takes tremendous courage.

    That being said, I do have difficultly in believing the advertised distance. I can put hardly put 1 of 5 shots in a 100yrd distanced man sized target. Without stress, which he would certainly be under. But this is just me.

    God bless you, Mr. Stacy.

    1. I just read somewhere that the human body is a big target. Elevation is not a problem, only windage. It might be a tad shorter distance, but the .357 Mag can reach and pass the 165 yard mark easy.

  2. Pretty amazing stuff!

    re: the brownwoodnews.com article: no doubt they mean well, but what’s with the reference to a “.9 mm handgun”? (Yeah, I know it’s an easy typo to make, but if they’re going to provide specific details it would be good to get them right. 9mm is a bullet; 0.9 mm is a pencil lead.)

  4. I don’t think 165 yards is correct.
    I shoot a 357 and maybe able to hit with 1
    out Of 6 rounds at a distance like that with
    Iron sights. Even With a Scope on a pistol that’s
    A tough shot. Maybe I’ll put up some targets
    Tomorrow and try.
