fast gunhandling



makes garand look like the slowpoke that he IS, eh? :-) told you that youd not get more'n 2 topic starts per week, or 20 posts. Looks like it's not even half that much. Typical.

Sigh...

So show us what YOU can do, rather than some random stranger off of youtube. I've done so and others here have done so. You have not.

I dont have to do anything and especially not for you, so I'm not gonna. I just showed you what CAN be done, to make all you slow-arses feel bad about how lazy you are. I did this speed work as a kid. I dont have to work on it at all, and have not needed to do so since about 1980. already had world-class speed. As close as this guy is, vs ONE guy, now, it would be faster to either kick the guy or dive on him. A ccw belt draw is always fumble-prone and at arms length starting distances, the guy can be slapping your forearm, kicking your nuts, raking your eyes a LOT faster than the .70 second of this guy's fastest draw (without the .20 sec reaction time).

I'm all done with doing anything that I dont have to do or that I dont want to do. and I sure as hell dont wanna do anything you punks want.

Well, you certainly told me. I guess I'll just sit here, feeling bad for myself while I get used to the new big-dot sights I'm experimenting with on one of my glock 19's.

How lazy I am; ok.

-I employ multiple people.
-I work average 11-hour days.
-When we bought this business a little over 8 years ago, it was 17 years old, and had less than HALF the paying monitored customers that we have now. (Put in simpler terms for you - we've more than doubled the customer base in less than half the time.)
-I paid $3937.25 in business taxes today; and the month isn't over yet. Have another $3300-$3400 to pay out at the end of the week.
-I'm in the process of building a new house (4800 square feet with an 1100-square-foot emergency shelter), that my wife and I designed ourselves and are having a commercial-steel building company in another county fabricate.
-I spend several hours a week rehearsing musical performances.
-I spend probably 15-25 hours a week doing volunteer work as president of the local rotary club. (Yes, volunteering my time and energy. Because I'm not a bitter asshat.)
-I'm in charge of a local highway clean-up this coming saturday; a group of us picking up trash along two miles of state highway. Because tourist season is cranking up, we like contributing to our community, and we aren't bitter asshats.
-I fired around 600 rounds of 223 and 9mm ammo last weekend, just spending time with my wife and grown sons on our 39-acre property.
-Speaking of the property, I'm so lazy that we managed to completely pay it off already.
-Since Friday was a holiday for our company (we treat our people very well), I came up here and manned the phones myself, while working in our shop making up some insane-capable extension cables for our house construction site. (IE, 10-gauge 4-conductor 230-volt 'extension cords' 150 feet long. Big and heavy enough that a drug-dependent senior citizen with a bad back such as yourself would have trouble carrying.) But my employees got the day off, with full pay, and our customers were taken care of.
-I worked out with 50-lb dumbells today.
-I gave out a $5000 rotary club donation check for a local drug rehab organization today.

But compared to a self-admitted drug-dependent, welfare-receiving semi-cripple, I'm "lazy". You bet...

You didn't have a timer as a kid; so you have no way of knowing if you did anywhere near this "as a kid".

Awesome. Much like people who ran a marathon in 1980, surely there's no degradation or atrophying of skills; just because you haven't "needed to work on it" since Jimmy Carter was president. Awesome.

So if I told you that I want you to keep posting moronic crap, you'd stop...?

(Honestly, I really kind of hope you do keep posting stupd crap. I'd kind of forgotten how much your lunacy makes me grin when I'm replying.)

Well said John in AR.
Now someone will hurt his fingers typing a nonsense unreadable babbling reply, like always.

Same old tired tripe. We're all too lazy, or work too hard on firearm skills, or bother to support ourselves well. Melvin can do all these things mentally, just using a library keyboard. Let me see, in the 1980's I was probably at the top of my shooting game and have practiced ever since. I am not as fast as I was then, who is? And shooting is definitely a perishable skill. If you haven't shot a hand gun or rifle since 1980 your skills are not still there. Your kidding yourself. I know you can't practice shooting being a felon and all, but please don't insult common sense by saying once learned skills are there forever. Just not true.

I'm actually faster now than I was then, but it's because of training and structured, measured practice. Back then, I enjoyed shooting and so got into ppc in the 70's and ipsc in the 80's & 90's.

But I'd had no actual 'training' at all other than the on-range advice of other guys. I also didn't have a timer to work against back then. I just bought a timer probably 6-8 years ago now, and the combination of timer, various-sized steel targets, and getting some actual, genuine training have made me better now than in my 20's. Better and faster with a gun - I'm definitely slower on my feet now.

Well I'll be the first to admit I'm not as fast as I was 30 years and a carpal tunnel surgery ago. I can hike most high school seniors into the ground, but I couldn't do it carrying a 60 lb. pack and an M-16 like I used to either. This is about as heavy as I want to carry now.

I noticed that when I turned 60 and I was shooting the US SASS Nationals in Phoenix that I was happier than heck to shoot a 24 rds stage utilizing 4 different firearms in 39 seconds. Then I watched a 17 year old do the same stage in 18 seconds! Getting older sucks when the body doesn't operate as well as it did 35-40 years ago.

I knew, as a kid, that I could beat the coin drop, openly worn 1911, which is .5 second, plus reaction time. That is what I meant. draw speed. ccw slows me down about .30 second. (as compared to speed rig) once i learned to have the pistol at the navel, and use both inhalation and a brushing technique to lift the shirt. This is what I meant, for a 1 handed hip shot, now. At arms length ranges, its still faster and more reliable (vs one guy) to just use hand to hand ability (assuming you HAVE any, that is). By the time i got into IPSC, I could beat the coin drop to a weaver. :-) again, with speed rig.

I would love to see your speed rig. My holsters are pretty generic except for a custom one for my CZ P-01 and my Glock 21. E.B. leather, I recommend him highly.

You do realize (or maybe you don't) what you just said about how fast you were in your prime...?

You just said that even in your prime...
- back before Trump,
- back before Obama,
- back before Bush-43,
- back before Clinton,
- back before Bush-41,
- back before Reagan
- back when Jimmy Carter was president, ie
- back in the previous century,

back before years of atrophy due to non-participation, before your self-described years of drug dependency, and even with what you've repeatedly called your world-class speed, you were STILL slower than this unknown young guy.

Think about what you just said in this post. You claim your time from concealment was 0.80 seconds, PLUS reaction time. This very-capable guy showed 0.88 for TWO hits, INCLUDING reaction time, and is still pretty much an unknown.

No, we don't know this young man's split times. But even Miculek the Great, shooting a compensated 1911 in the small 9mm caliber, runs 0.14 split times; so no, you're not running 0.08 splits from a concealment gun unless you want to claim that you were nearly twice as fast with a concealment gun than Miculek is with a full-size, compensated, 9mm 1911. Is that your claim..?

You yourself just provided video evidence that some unknown guy, who DOESN'T claim 'world-class' status, is still faster than you were in your prime. That's gotta hurt someone with an ego as big & brittle as yours.
