Own A 9mm….Do You Know What The Maximum Distance For A ‘Kill Shot’ Is…If Not Then Look Here & Find Out

For those of you who are not familiar with the YouTube Channel iraqveteran8888, I thought I’d take this time before you watch the video below to fill you in a little bit about them.

This paragraph is from their website

Eric and Chad became friends in high school by sharing a love of music. They eventually discovered they shared a love of firearms as well. In 2008, Eric and Chad began to record their reloading days and trips to the range on a little Sony point and shoot camera – just for fun. Eric uploaded these videos to YouTube and noticed that he started gaining subscribers. He would receive an email for each new subscriber and one day woke up to over 300 email notifications at which point he had to disable those notifications! YouTube invited Iraqveteran8888 to become one of the first 50 channels to become part of their new “partners” program – they wanted to place ads on the content. Today Iraqveteran8888 has over 1.8 million subscribers and over 498 million video views.

I think both Eric and Chad are good at their job , talking about and discussing the many different firearms they spotlight in their videos and that is why I use them for content here at Great American Outdoors. Since they’re Veterans (as am I) , I feel a distinct kinship to them and…it goes without saying, that we’re all brothers in arms and that’s good enough for me.

I searched the web for an answer to the question above and my search turned-up many different answers and opinions, so instead of boring you with a lot of useless information, I thought I’d leave it to Eric to properly demonstrate for you just what the maximum range that one can score a “kill shot” with a 9mm is.
