Video: Legendary shooter Jerry Miculek used his special Smith & Wesson — created in his honour — to shoot a target 1000 yards (914.4m) away — a new world record. Notice that it takes about four seconds for the bullet to reach its target. Amazing. Jerry had to aim to the sky — 45m above the balloon — in order to hit it.

The first crossover I ever drove was a mid-2000s Mazda Tribute, a re-badged version of Ford’s Escape, in turn based on Mazda’s old 626 sedan (GF) platform.

But when this man sent me photos of the limestone blocks, I immediately realised he had something invaluable.
