Either a ghost gun or a burp gun. Scares all the littles. If not scaring then concerning them.

I think that the only thing that may be faster is a gas gun.

Is it a revolver or an autoloader?

At one point I was way better than average at wing shooting + skeet, trap and sporting clays. But that's a much different skill set than this guy shows. I'm still good at very long range shooting (1000 yards) with a rifle but there's nothing that's fast about that process.

I like this guy.. I wouldn't even get a chance to draw the gun... Start at the 53 second mark.

That dude always fascinated me. Even slo-mo cannot catch the recocking and cylinder rotation -- just one bang.

Every now and then the human race produces an individual with godlike shooting ability. Ad Toepperwein was one of them. I discovered him when I read the story of how he had boys throw two small pine blocks (2"x2") in the air. He began shooting, and after a while they ran out of new blocks, so they threw the smaller pieces up. Of 72,500, he missed nine! <--

He was not limited to one "trick". He could eject a shell from his Winchester repeating rifle and then hit the shell with a bullet before the shell hit the ground. Toepperwein went even further: He threw 5 eggs into the air, picked up his Winchester .22 rifle and shot all 5 eggs before they hit the ground.

Then he made it "difficult" -- He tossed 3 eggs in the air and shot each egg with a different rifle.

When I was 8 years old, I watched him shoot a 4'x2' sheet of copper with a Winchester autoloader. Almost as fast as a machine-gun, he made a perfect portrait of an Indian chief. o_O

Yep! This guy will never be beat on the fast draw. He's got a number of videos out there.

jrog100 don't forget about jerry mickulek (spelling) he was fast back in the day, and there were many more.

I remember Bob Munden using a .38 detective stub to his targets out at 100 yards.

You don't see american tour shooters on tv much anymore. I'm sure that we still have some amazing shooters.
