Last month, champion 3-gun shooter Patrick Kelley split two playing cards using a Glock G34, so we decided to up the ante. In the latest installment of “TacTricks with Patrick Kelley,” he splits a single card twice, using a Les Baer 1911—with one hand.

“Ever the showman, Kelley takes card tricks to a whole new level with this nearly impossible shot,” said Shooting Illustrated Editor-in-Chief Guy J. Sagi. “What was already a ridiculously small target—the edge of a playing card—becomes even smaller after his first shot, making his second shot all the more amazing.”
