Amazing 400-yard shot with a 9mm handgun

Jerry Miculek is arguably the world’s best marksman. Since 1989 when Jerry quit his day-job to become a professional shooter he has amassed an unfathomable amount of world records. He can hit an aspirin tossed into the air or dump eight shots on target from a revolver in exactly one second.

Jerry even seemed surprised by his latest challenge, a 435-yard shot to a metal plate. Now I know what you are thinking, “What’s the holdover on something like that?” Miculek estimates somewhere between 25 to 30 feet.

While we would expect great things from a guy who actually lives on a road called “Shootout Lane,” a 400-yard shot with a handgun is amazing. While it may be better to be lucky than good, Jerry proves a little of each can’t hurt.

Watch the video until the end where he goes into detail about his finely tuned Smith & Wesson M&P.
