I was shooting with a friend who had just purchased a new (used) revolver. He was having a hard time hitting the broadside of a barn with it, and when I shot it, I also had difficulty, but was able to keep them on target. He made the comment he could shoot better blindfolded than with that revolver. So, he held it up, closed his eyes, and hit the bullseye on the first attempt.
Cool shot - but totally lucky. Even in a rest that particular revolver wouldn't provide a group anything more than the size of a dinner plate at 7 yards. It was promptly traded in for a new (used) Ruger Vaquero which he still has.

Well my uncoolest shot I ever made was the Christmas vacation I was ten I was shooting my new Ben Pearson 20# bow at a hay bale in front of dads single story barn (no hayloft). Well my dad had queitly walked up behind me as I nocked up a now feather less arrow and turning the bow crosswise robin hood style I let the arrow fly.
The Kansas wind lifted the shot too high arrow and it sailed over the barn![
My dads voice caught me by surprize as it boomed "by god you've done it son"! You have missed the broad side of a barn"! "Never thought It could be done, but you proved me wrong!"
Never lived that one down. But then again I have never missed the broad side of barn again.

Best "shot" for me was last yr at my qualification round. After the first 10-12 rds the center of the target was one big hole.
One of my co-workers said " Ya know it only counts as one hole"
I just smiled and said " NOW you tell me."
Best part of the day was beating the boss and his competition pistol with my stock G21.

The UNCOOLEST shot I ever made was at the city dump back in the sixties. Was using a remington Nylon 66 to shoot rats. A rat was about fifty yards away perched on a farm tractor tire. I missed....a bit low....and the bullet hit the tire and flew back to me hitting me on the thigh.
Dang that was painful!

OK, after that I've got to tell my story.

Took the deer right in the armpit - first deer I had ever shot. I was pretty pleased with myself: those bead sights on an 870 aren't quite like a scope.
The only real problem was that my wife had been fast asleep on the other side of a thin wall. She, um, woke up kinda quick...
