What’s the farthest you could accurately and hit a target with your pistol? If you’re professional shooter Jerry Miculek, it’s about 1,000 yards.

In a video recently posted on YouTube, Miculek, a speed and competition shooter regarded by as one of the fastest revolver shooters in the world, aims his Smith & Wesson 929 9mm at a balloon target 1,000 yards away without the aid of a shooting rest.

At first viewing, it appears Miculek hits his mark, but after analyzing the clip further, he believes it was the splatter of the bullet hitting the steel backdrop that popped the balloon. Still, a pretty impressive shot.
