Jerry Miculek (/ˈmɪəlɛk/) is a speed shooter and competition shooting instructor.[1] He is renowned as one of the fastest revolver shooters in the world, emptying a five-shot revolver in 0.57 seconds in a group the size of a playing card.[citation needed] Miculek currently holds five world records in exhibition revolver shooting.[citation needed] He is married to Kay Clark Miculek, herself an accomplished shooter, holding numerous national and world titles.

In addition, Miculek is an experienced gunsmith who tunes and adjusts his own revolvers for optimum function.

World records held[edit]

Task Firearm(s) Used Time (sec) Date Notes
Fire six shots (each) from 10 different .38 caliber revolvers S&W Model 64 revolvers (10) 17.12 September 25, 2003 Broke Ed McGivern's record of 25 seconds.
Fire six shots, reload, fire six shots from 1 revolver S&W Model 625 revolver 2.99 September 11, 1999
Fire eight shots from a revolver on a single target S&W Model 627 V-Comp revolver 1.00 September 11, 1999
Fire eight shots from a revolver on four targets (2 hits each target) S&W Model 627 V-Comp revolver 1.06 September 11, 1999

Miculek also demonstrated the ability to fire five shots from a revolver on target with a S&W Model 64 ported barrel revolver in 0.57 seconds on September 25, 2003. This does not even come close to the record held by Ed McGivern of 0.45 sec (first shot on 9/13/1932, reproduced 4 times on 12/8/1932). Originally recorded as "two-fifths of a second", the resolution of the timing equipment in 1932 was only 0.20 of a second, so the actual figure could have been anywhere between 0.40 and 0.45 seconds, but Miculek is still not even close to this time.[citation needed]
