Long Shot

Elfego Baca, one of the world's longest golf holes (a rocky three-mile stretch on the side of New Mexico's Socorro Peak) is named after a famed sheriff who was ambushed in 1884 by a gang of outlaws.

When he retreated into an adobe hut, the outlaws poured 4000 rounds of ammunition into the shack, turning its walls into Swiss cheese -- but missing Baca every time. When the thugs ran out of bullets, Baca calmly emerged from his shelter and arrested them.
