Former ICE Agent Victor Avila Makes Record 2,010-Yard Pistol Shot

USING MULTIPLE OPTICS AND TECHNOLOGY FROM USA1SHOT, VICTOR AVILA HIT A STEEL TARGET AT A REMARKABLE 2,010 YARDS, SETTING A NEW WORLD RECORD.

By TACTICAL LIFE

There’s going long, then there’s going long. Retired ICE Special Agent Victor Avila went really long recently, setting a new distance record for pistol shooting. Avila hit a steel target out at 2,010 yards.

The shot came on an ELR target, using a 10mm pistol. Avila also scored multiple hits on a 1,650 ELR target using a Glock 23. The shooter used 1ShotSystems from USA1SHOT, along with several optical systems designed by Robert Gilmer and Jim Olson. The previous world record holder, C. Sawyer, coached Avila during the 90-minute shoot. Remarkably, Avila made all shots from a standing, offhand position.

Dubbed the ARENA competition, the event was held to demonstrate handgun capabilities. Using advanced technologies, including USA1SHOT and EOTech, shooters make first-shot hits at distances previously considered unimaginable.

Avila spent a career combating human trafficking and drug cartels. He’s currently running for City Counsel in the town of Southlake, Texas.

The 2,010-yard shot puts Avila in some incredible company. According to the video, the legendary Bob Munden established the modern-day record at 200 yards in 1978. Then another legend, Jerry Miculek, stretched the record to 1,000 yards, using a 9mm pistol in 2014. Since then, R. Gilmer Sawyer twice broke the record, at 1,120 and 1,760 yards, followed now by Avila. Want some more long distance? Global Precision Group hit a 6,000-yard rifle shot back in 2019. Keep going long, shooters!

It would be interesting to see the ballistics info on the load. The ballistics arc would resemble a mortar round.

I have a observation/question on that video....at that range, that bullet would be dropping almost vertical. Wouldn't the bullet hit be at a steep angle, making more of a vertical smear, than a round dot (and bouncing off the target)?

Please correct me, if I'm missing something? Andy3

Looks like the bullet hit the target at a 40 degree'ish angle with the force of a peewee third baseman.

Looks like they are at The Black Rock Desert.
I understand the bullet is hardly moving at the target range but they still have no backstop. I could be driving out there!

Looks like they are promoting a pistol brace.

I didn't watch the video so i can't say much about that.
I realize there was a lot of high tech equipment used to calculate the shot. I understand that it takes a lot of skill to make such a shot.
I was wondering how many shots it took to actually hit that target? Also can he do it again? Perhaps several times in a row?
One shot does make a tiny group. More may be larger but can indicate more skill.

IMO it's not a pistol shot, it's a short barreled rifle shot. The USA1SHOT is an attached buttstock, so it's shoulder fired.

It’s not attached. It is gripped in place. No Nfa issues.
