The 56yd pistol shot - one year later

You may have heard about this incident last year and wondered if it were an exaggeration.
The original reports turned a 169 ft. shot into a 165 yard shot. Really good fact checking on someone's part. NOT!

Side note: Texas: shoot a murderer, save the state a bunch of money, get a gift of a new rifle! (A custom made, 7.62 LaRue OBR (Optimized Battle Rifle) and a case of ammunition.)

Still a heck of a shot. :) Nice OBR, now, too! :)

After Bob Munden, I would believe a 165 yard shot.

What does a caring, sensitive
person feel when they are forced
to use a handgun to stop a threat?


Recoil.
