I was way off with the distance...it was over 3000 ft...the shot could have been fatal if it were a direct hit in the head at that distance. Son said the hole was at his head level...he's tall. Anywho, who knew. The topography of the land out there would favor how the bullet were to hit too...Since there is a creek running between the properties, the neighbors land is higher than my daughters house. Should make everyone more aware of where their bullets are going...that's a long way for a stray..

He must have been sitting on a mountain when he pulled that trigger then. The drop of a 9mm round in it's last 20 ft of travel (from 990ft distance to 1010 ft) is 16 FEET!
The bullet took 5.11 seconds to travel the 1000 yards. It reached a height of 110 feet at 583 yards from the shooter. It arrived at a velocity of 377 fps.

This first graph shows the height in inches from the point of aim. At the target the bullet is hitting over 2900 inches low. That is over 240 feet below the point of aim!

Total drop for 1000 yards is 241 feet.
In this graph the rate of descent at the 1000 yard mark is shown. That is nearly 11 inches of additional drop for each yard of travel.

Well I was impressed at 1000ft and now it's 3000ft. And here I have spent money needlessly on a long range 6.5x284 Norma and big scope hoping to shoot 1000yd. I could have just bought a Wilson 9mm instead.

One time at BANNED camp warning !
:D :D :D

I bought a new limflex Bull last year.
He was 16 months old and just a long legged kid.
A year later he’s still very lean looking and tall.
I’ve got my first calf crop out of him and he put the leg and height on them. I’m hoping the cows will put the width and weight on them but do so far they are built like a thoroughbred.
I’m anxious to see the how they grow out but I’m thinking I need more bull power. Everything is bred back to him so I have at least one more round out of him.
I think I probably need to go straight limousine and stay away from the limflex.
The angus x limousine a bad cross ?

I can almost throw a rock a hit one where they do. a 9mm would go plumb through it.but a lot of folks around here, just need a hole to crawl in....to call home..

I had explained that they are going to build a house in the near future. BUt until then, they bought a small office building, that looks like the barn shaped ones you get at HD...BUt, I think this one was built by some Mennonites and is finished inside. They did not want to add anything to the house that couldn't be taken off because it would just be wasted on what will probably be a cabin or shop later on, its small and a house she had built when she graduated college and started teaching. I'd say it equals a one bedroom apartment right now and her daughter just turned 4 and she knows it will be at least a year before they can build so this is what she's done... They added it to the back of the house. Soon as they build and move, that can be sold just as it was when she bought it..

Your wish is my command.

I picked up a hitchhiker the other day on I-75 and it was hot as hades outside. The fella was real thankful and told me that I was one in a million because most everyone who sees a hitchhiker automatically assumes they are serial killers. I just laughed and explained that I had a background in statistics and the probability of there being two serial killers in the location on the same day at the same time in the same truck was so low that you'd have better odds of being eaten by a great white shark in Lake Tahoe than that ever happening.

How was that story? Still bored?
