Well I think that the buffering takes way to long....but that could be the connection I got (on the rd in AZ)

I think that is a long shot for a heavy slow moving bullet out of a short case. I have a 1911 A1 in 45 auto and would never even dream of taking that long a shot. A coustom gun is nice but it does not change the laws of physics?

I see a welcome to the site is in order Thumbs up

Be interesting to see what others opinions are.

Well its a long shot with a .45 STI. It is a video and will require bandwith.

How many shots did ya take before ya finally hit it? But a nice hit eithor way.
Was at the range last night and watched a 7 year old girl go 10 for 10 at 100y at a paper plate with a 22mag pistol. I don't see a problem when plinking ONLY taking long shots like that but still ya gotta know whats on the other side.

You ask a great question. The actual video that was taken I had been shooting all day in a shot gun class and before my friend started videoing I had been hitting it almost every time. The shot takes allot of concentration and I did not have much left at the time of the video. And a long story short that shot took 5-6 shots. When I am fresh I can hit it very consistently.

I am using 220 grain Agulara ammunition. It is a Mexican ammunition company (not to offensive in price or quality). For a hobby I am a tactical shooting instructor (pistol, shotgun, rifle) and shoot allot and can hit that target regularly. I am going to shoot some more videos just been real busy. We also do 1000 yard shots with 50 caliber Barrett, or 308s Springfield/Armorlite and probably the next video. Thanks for your comments!
