25,50,100 and 200 yard test w/ handguns
1911, P99 and Glock - 1 guys test at long distances.
Obviously, the 1911 show the best - it was a Les Baer. P99 was a little better than the Glock. Guy admitted that he never adjusted the adj sights on the P99 for windage, so that could explain his higha nd to the right hits at 100 yards.
Interesting article... Found it mentioned on the Walther website...
"Long" range handgun shooting?
I see several of y'all have never heard of silhouette shooting with handguns, either with the IHMSA or the NRA.
You would be surprised just how accurate you can be at 200 meters/yards with a big bore gun. I'm not suggesting you hunt dear-sized game at 200 yards, but you certainly can hit the ram silhouette at that distance consistently with a .44 mag or even with a .45 auto.
I have shot enough silhouette with handguns to know that if an enemy were approaching me from that distance, and all I had was a .45, I would be able to defend myself.
I've fired the .45 auto at the rams enough to know how much I have to hold over the target to hit it. Try it! You might like it! :)
