    Default 1911 Commander at 230 Yards

    This ol' boy's a stud. If you get a chance, check out a few more of his videos after you watch this one. He does great pistol reviews....

    Use Elmer Keith's long distance sighting system, and you'll downright scare yourself how far you can hit. Or hit close enough to worry heck out of someone. Again and again.

    You raise the to of the front sight above the rear sight, letting you keep your aiming point on the target without hiding it behind the front sight. He went so far as having marks scribed on the back face of the front sight to indicate where to align it with the rear sight for different elevations. He had 100, 200 and 300 yard marks if I recall in the photo I saw. It's downright amazing to aim that way for longer shots. After trying it myself, I'm a firm believer in his claims for hits at unbelievable distances.
