Kobra Carry Accuracy




I don't go around promoting my videos (it doesn't seem to be necessary, thankfully), but it occurred to me as I was browsing in here this morning that you Kobra Carry purchasers might enjoy seeing one shoot at long range.

I do these 230 yard videos every now and then, even though I'm not really a precision-type shooter. I chose the Kobra Carry because of the great trigger; I'm assuming any of my 1911s are capable of doing this, but my Kobra Carry has the best trigger of all my 1911s.

The video is a fairly recent upload; it's called "1911 at 230 yards."

I do really like my Kobra Carry, even though I spend most of my time with Glocks and such.

Take care.

Interesting shooting, how far above the target were you aiming?

Hickok, I've watched a lot of your videos in the past and you are one heck of a marksman. I've particularly enjoyed the one where you are shooting zombies in the woods and the one where you trim trees with your shotgun. They both had me cracking up.

He says right at the end of the video that the front sight is on the target but the rear sight is aligned with the bottom of the front. Looked like fun.

I view your videos on a regular basis and enjoy them all, very fine shooting here with the KC at 230 yds. I'm not surprised that you like the EB trigger the best out of all your 1911's. I have to agree with you there.

Now, if I only had a backyard range set-up like yours.

Very nice, I have seen several of your videos, just not that one.


I am going to have to run the ballistics table and see what a 230 grains of .451 at 900fps flightpath looks like out to 250 yards!

I am one of your followers! Love your videos! Post some more 1911 videos and more instruction videos (shooting instructions).

HICKOK45 -

Well done indeed. I enjoyed all the Ed Brown videos (of course) and the shotgun tree trimming that was mentioned above. I can see there are many more I will need to watch!!!
