Jared Clawson aka @T1CS and Black Rifle Coffee filmed some spectacular footage. Jared performed some impressive trick shots involving guns and coffee. The 9mm Coffee Grinder was particularly impressive.
The video starts off with easy trick shots and then each trick shot gets progressively harder. Their first shot was just a simple gallon jug of coffee being shot with what looks like buckshot. One nice thing is they got their hands on a decent slow motion camera to capture the hits on target with fantastic clarity.
The second trick had them toss a bag of coffee and shoot it with a shotgun. After that they set up coffee clusters on a plate rack and dueling tree. Jared nails them in quick succession. This trick is not particularly difficult as the splatter from the bullet hitting the steel will easily take out the clusters. You can see it in the screen shot below. The bullet impacted below the cluster but it was still “shot” off.
The next two tricks are rather impressive. The first one is the 9mm coffee grinder. Jared just has to simply hit a coffee bean held up by a straw. Then they ramp it up by having Jared shoot a falling drop of coffee. This takes the precision aspect of the lone coffee bean and adds timing to it just to make it more challenging.
Jared seems to be using a compensated Glock 17. What is more interesting is he is making these shots with iron sights. I would have thought he was using a red dot.
Have you seen similar markmanship using iron sights? I know there are some rather spectacular trick shooters using revolvers. There was an archer who could shoot aspirin tablets out of the air with a bow and arrow. I think Jared Clawson is up there with some of these trick shots.
