Here's some by Todd Jarrett.

Its worth the time to watch it... even for advanced shooters.

Some pretty good stuff there, DWatts. Thanks for putting this up.

Tell ya what; I'm going to sticky this for awhile so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. A lot of people can learn a lot here.

Cool videos

Is Jarrett shooting full power rounds when he makes these vid's? It seems like the recoil from his pistol is non-existent.

The vids are good, but they are not free professional training. They are a free professional demonstration.

I found the part of shooting the Barrett .50 BMG off the top of the bus as it was moving to be a bit disconcerting. Unless the roof is armored and represents actual structural cover to the driver, then Jarrett was shooting the rifle with the driver being down range from the muzzle.

Pretty cool!

I was kind of suprised to see TJ using a Para-Ord. LDA for most of the pistol shooting.

Why? Hes known for shooting for Para and using the LDA. Why on earth anyone would choose a DA is beyond me but I guess it works okay for TJ.

All I have to say is "WOW!!!!" I suppose that is the same as comparing a professional in any sport to...well me.

I agree - NO recoil, what's up with that?

I LOVE his TOTAL natural ability to know EXACTLY where his gun is pointing. I think I'm pretty good at that, but he makes it look like he CAN'T point the gun anywhere but down-range.

Obviously he is NOT buying his own ammo.

Todd Jarrett for President.

I've watched some of his other videos, and the amount of knowledge he has is amazing. I'll be watching those video's for a while. Good post!

OK, this one's been sticky'd for almost 3 months now, and there's another I'd like to put up for awhile.

Problem is, we can't have too many sticky notes here, so I'm gonna have to unstick this one to make room for it.

Anyone interested, you should probably bookmark the link now, before this gets lost in the shuffle.

Great stuff. I've watched that many, many times to date and will many, many more times in the future.

When the film is on slo-mo you can see the recoil. He just recovers nicely from it.

Somehow I missed this before. Good stuff indeed, thanks for posting.

Given the interest shown here, perhaps I was a bit hasty in removing the sticky note. Tell ya what; I'm going to resticky (that's a word??? ) this for an, um.... undetermined period of time .

Thanks for the post, and for the sticky.
I was wondering the same thing about the lack of recoil. I assumed it had to either be incredible technique, or light loads. I suppose it's a combination of both, but even though there is some recoil that can be seen, it does seem to be rather light.
