Capt Dan Combs-OHP

Dan Combs was a local legend in Oklahoma, he was a shooting expert, and did shooting demonstrations all over the place, I had the great privilege to see him shoot several times. Very recently I was made aware of this video, its not the greatest quality, but was made when home video recording was just getting established. A couple of things this video missed, one demo I had seen was with a Thompson sub machine gun, it was notorious for climbing when it was fired, Dan would always warn the crowd they should leave a gap because of the climb when it was shot, and the crowd would give way, then he would shoot the entire drum in one continuous string, keeping all the shots centered on a playing card!

It was inevitable that there would be a bobble from time to time, and he always said the same thing, "I guess my hair got in my eyes", removing his hat and pushing back his imaginary hair, Dan was as bald as a bowling ball!

He also tells what happened when he made the mistake of trusting the half cock "safety" on a 1911.

Great video. A timely line about not disarming the citizens. Spent 5 years in OK. I'd go back in a heartbeat
