Stopping an Active Shooter – 40 Yard Handgun Shots By: Dave Timm


In Greenwood, Indiana a Good Samaritan, 22 yea old Elisjsha Dicken saved countless lives by stopping an active shooter while lawfully carrying his handgun. The even more amazing part is he engaged the shooter who was armed with a rifle at 40 yards! 40 yard handgun shots are not something we typically practice or train for. How hard is a 40 yard handgun shot? Dave heads to the range to dry this drill, cold, with a variety of carry handguns to see how much of a challenge this is.
