How does Bob Munden fire his Colt .45 M-1911 so it looks like a full auto burst. (As seen on American Shooter T.V.) He seems to be stroking his trigger finger with his left hand. It was a little to fast for me to grasp. Any one know, or care to make a guess? ....Horsefeathers.

Bob Munden

Bob's using an old Clark Custom and holding it in a left handed grip.
He fans with his right hand index finger.
WARNING, this can be very dangerous in untrained hands causing the bore line to intersect with the shooters head if the gun recoils badly!!!!!
This shooting trick is best done with a 100% reliable compensated gun, if you absolutely have to try this at your range START WITH only two rounds in the mag and a very firm left handed grip.

Years ago a shooting buddy had a firing pin retainer crack (it had been modified with a set screw retainer, why, I don't know). When the retainer broke in half vertically, it froze the firing pin forward, and emptied the magazine firing from an open bolt like a SMG. The last round went through the bill of the shooter's baseball cap.....and he had arms bigger than my legs. Yes, the M1911 will climb.

Ad Clark and his department firearms instructor used to use this method for demonstration purposes. The right elbow is locked to the right side, the left fore finger on the trigger, or on the right hand trigger finger. The pistol was thrust forward rapidly from the right side, allowing faster firing than using the finger itself to fire the weapon.

'Bump-firing' a 1911? Wow. In case anyone doesn't know about this, it's used on semi-auto rifles like AKMs or AR-15s. The rifle is held at the hip. You hold the RH trigger finger rigid and push the rifle forward with your left hand on the handguard. The trigger hits the finger and the rifle fires. Recoil knocks it back, the LH pushes it forward again, and you're cycling. A lot of fun and mostly innaccurate. Watch out for the slide if you try it with a pistol from the hip!

I use the same method on rifles as well. The last Para 12/45 I just got will spit out 6 "fanned" this way. (I have not put more than 6 at a time in this one yet) I can shoot a SKS of AK style and it truely does sound fully automatic. (just ask the cops who keep coming by, as well as my US Army retired dad) I've got a Hi-power that will empty a mag faster than you can count. Kinda cool to hear several brass hit the ground after the last shot is fired. Have fun, but be safe.

(I've never had the muzzle climb more than 8 inches or so)
