How many of you practice shooting your pistola out to 100 yards or more?
Yeah, I know. If you’ve bought one of those Taurus Turds that Guns & Ammo loves so dearly, there’s not really any point practicing as it has no sights. The rest of us who have guns with sights though… can you hit a man-sized target at 100 yards or more if you had to in a pinch?
Austin, Texas police mounted cop Sergeant Adam Johnson does and he can, even when under the incredible stress of firing at a man trying to kill innocent people – while holding onto his horse. In the dark. One-handed.
Johnson took down a lunatic would-be spree killer from 312 feet with his .40 S&W caliber pistol as the bad guy was shooting at Sgt. Johnson’s fellow officers. Oh yeah, it was in the dark and Johnson was holding the reins of not one, but two police horses as he fired, striking the bad guy in the heart.
Johnson says his fellow officers who were advancing on the would-be spree killer (we’re not using his name because he deserves zero notoriety from his evil acts) are the ones deserving praise for bravery and courage under fire. Johnson also believed there was a little divine intervention in the shot as well.
Here are a couple of videos:
