Video: TT33 "Star" in short competition clip

Post by timmy » Sun Nov 20, 2022 1:09 pm

Here, Ian shoots the TT33 in timed competition. I found this interesting because the TT33, not being safe to carry with a round in the chamber, must have the slide racked before it can be brought to the ready to fire state.

Note how quickly Ian accomplishes this.

Of course, he is a well-practiced shooter, but I found it interesting to see how fast it can actually be done. See for yourself:

"One constant about the elements of 1914 - as of any era - was the disposition of everyone on all sides not to prepare for the harder alternative, not to act upon what they suspected to be true"

That was a very interesting video, Tim. He still managed to get into the fourth place. Not bad at all.
