Jerry Miculek is busy pouncing 22LR lead and wearing the paint off some steel targets with the new Thompson Center T/CR22 rifle. Whats is remarkable is when he goes at it again he takes it up another notch in speed. (lightning finger)
The T/CR22 delivers exceptional out-of-the-box performance through a feature set that appeals to both recreational shooters and hunters.
The T/CR22 includes a green fiber optic front sight and adjustable rear peep sight for quick target acquisition, while the built-in picatinny-style rail allows for the mounting of an optic for precision shooting at longer ranges.
Also comes with a standard lightweight Magpul co-branded composite stock, oversized bolt handle and a reportedly crisp trigger pull– Jerry certainly doesn’t seem to have a problem with it.
If you are curious about the record he refers to.
Jerry succeeded in engaging three different targets at 15 feet, shooting each multiple times center mass in a grand total of 1.59 seconds. Super bad ass! Take a look.
Did you know that the iconic DL-44 Blaster that was used by Harrison Ford alias ‘Han Solo’ in “Star Wars” can actually fire real bullets?
Legendary quick itching finger Jerry Miculek had a chance to blast one.
Watch Jerry takes this modified DL-44 Blaster for a run.
He goes thru what he calls the “Keso Run drill” where its all point shooting at close range at three different targets for inside the bar fight scenes. He nails 6 shots on all three targets in a little over 1 second. Don’t believe us take a look.
In the Star Wars world the DL-44 blaster pistol was used during the years of the Galatic Republic and the Age of the Empire.
Was considered one of the most powerful blaster pistols in the galaxy, delivering massive damage at close range.
The idea for the blaster originally came from the C96 “broom handle” Mauser firing the .30 Mauser/ 7.63X25 cartridge.
Engineers took the concept blaster from Star Wars built the add-ons to the the C96 chassis to make it a workable firearm.
-Flash Suppressor was from an MG-81 machine gun.
-Scope was a M19 optical sight from a Sherman tank
Did you see Jerry in the last drill where he unloads all six shots on one target in under a second?, 0.8 seconds – could be a world record.
If you ever get a chance to see a live demonstration of someone like Jerry that showcase their fast twitching shooting fingers, do so.
Seeing it on video is one thing, but man when you see it live, its hard to comprehend. Shooting at that high rate is hard for the eyes, brain and ears to register that quick.
Ever since the Las Vegas shooting and Senator Diane Feinstein introduced her bill to ban bump fire stocks, claims have been made about the speed at which semi-automatic rifles can be made to fire while using these ATF-approved accessories. Defenders pointed out that in order to simulate full-auto fire, you don’t need a bump fire stock . .
You can achieve the same rates of fire with a rubber band. Or a belt loop as seen on Youtube channels.
But what many really wanted to see was someone with serious skills to fire an un-aided semi-auto AR to see what can be done with just a (very skilled) finger. And who better to go up against a bump fire stock than Jerry Miculek to see what’s possible?
Well, YouTube awesome Iraqveteran8888 convinced the man himself to see what he could do in a side-by-side comparison.
See for yourself:
Eric with the bump fire stock outran Jerry by a hair’s worth, but Jerry was not far behind. When you look at the comparisons between the two. Jerry had great groupings compared to Eric. Take that to the bank!
The only question now is how long the censors at YouTube will allow the video to stay up.
If you think having 10 rounds of 9mm in your pistol magzine is enough. Why not have a 27 round mag.
The pistol Jerry is using is a 1911 modified for 9mm.
Jerry proceeds to show you how long it takes to get all 27 rounds downrange into a steel target.
See the vid below
Did you see that? Within a blink of an eye during the three seconds, Jerry unloads all on steel. Man sounds like music when the lead is hitting the steel, there was like a rhythmn to it.
What would those three guns be? Jerry Miculek had a chance to voice his response on the subject.
Wait, before we get to the guns, just to clarify that we’re talking about having these three guns for survival.
Some folks have talked about the .357 revolver as a primary SHTF in many internet forums and this has stirred up the hornet’s nest. Mainly due to the age demographics, for instances, folks that are from the older generation would agree with the .357 revolver. Where the younger millennium generation will stick with the striker based handguns like the Glocks in 9mm.
Don’t think so?, someone had asked this question to shootist extraordinaire Jerry Miculek and even he went with an 8-shot .357 wheelgun–specifically a Smith & Wesson 627–as his one handgun for every situation. Take a look:
Later on a different clip he’s asked what his favorite caliber, .45 Acp.
For us survivalist most will agree with the calibers choice, its all about versatility. The two calibers lets you load a wide range of bullets weights and pressures.
As for Jerry’s other two guns, he picks a rifle in .22LR and a 12-gauge shotgun. We agree with these picks, even though we do part ways on the handgun choice.
What about you what’s your favorite three guns for survival?, let us know in the comment below.
Here’s Jerry Miculek destroying Stage 8 at 3GN Southeastern Regional 2017 in Frostproof, FL. He kills it with a 56.53 time, thats under a minute running to different stations with multiple targets varying from 5 to 20 yards out with shotgun, AR and pistol.
Remember watching the old western movies that has the good guy cutting a rope with a gun, resulting in saving an innocent bystander and the day? Can the good guys really do that? Well, Jerry Miculek Youtuber set out for this task to see if its a myth or facts.
In the video Jerry talks about using the pistol, rifle and the rope to mimic the time frame from these western movies, here’s what he used:
-Used Sisal 3/4 inch rope as this was the norm back in the old western days.
-This rope is placed on a manniquin with 200 pound of weight at the bottom to maintain tension.
-Colt single action .45 pistol. Fired at the rope and did not cut the rope.
-Bring in a bigger gun, 74 Shadow Sharps 4570 rifle which shoots a 500 grain round nose (smokeless load).
-With the .45 pistol, it only scratched the rope and did not cut it.
-With the Shadows rifle 500 grain no problem cutting the rope in half and saving the manniquin.
As an extra bonus Jerry decides to pull out a .50 Cal BMG to represent the present day hombre and proceeds to cut the rope in half. However, the shot was a little off to the side and there was not enough tension on the rope. Ending story mannequin was laid to rest.
