4 steel in less than 1.5 secs. Max Michel is FAST

Here is a short but sweet video of Max Michel showing his skill. From the beep he draws his pistol and knocks down 4 steel targets in less than 1.5 secs. I need to try this. Looks like fun.

    I went to Gunsite 3 years ago. At the orientation the instructor stated we would be able to draw and make a head shot in 1.5 seconds. My brain said no way. On Friday it was a piece of cake.

    I betcha Jerry Miculek can do it faster.
    And hit twice as many targets in the same time.

      It would be fun to see them compete against each other.

      • Geoffry K

        Really! I would love to see that!

        They have competed. Search Youtube for the hotshots TV series.

          Oh God, please no. Anything but that.

    Now, do it with a stock gun and real holster. No disrespect to a very fast and competent shooter but JM can probably do it with a revolver

    Jerry Miculek is crying

      Nah, he’s a good dude. He’s probably smiling that someone out there gives him something to actually race against.

      • Martin Grønsdal

        no, I’m sorry, Miculek is crying because he could do the 4 targets faster, shooting from his holster while rolling around on the ground.

        • Matt F.

          Ah, alright, understood. I misread your post then. lol

    I would love to be able to quit my job and do things like this all day in my backyard.

  • I think Jerry Miculek would top this. Easily.

      M’kay, You know Max Michel holds multiple world records for speed steel? Not just with an open gun, either. He set the record for production just recently at the steel challenge championships. He’s also a multiple time world and national champion. Jerry is known because he’s good with a revolver. Max is known because he rarely loses.

        Max does pistols. Jerry does it all….
