Speed, accuracy, and total mastery of their firearms make these champion marksmen (and markswoman) the fastest in the world. These shooters are capable of pushing body and gun to their greatest limits, and always look good doing it.
They’re a bit like Shaolin monks, except their martial art includes expelling 18 bullet-shaped pieces of lead in under five seconds.

Cowboy Action Shooting champion and world record holder, it’s not hard to see how Spencer Hoglund got his nickname.

Jerry has since moved onto other things, such as speed shooting this Barrett M107.
This list is far from being conclusive. Who are your favorite speed shooters?
