    "Coolest" shot you ever made....

    We’ve had the “Dumbest” thing you’ve done or seen with a gun and the “Stupid” stories so I thought, how about one on the coolest shot you ever made. One day I was pheasant hunting with some friends when we came to a small patch of trees and tall grass in the middle of the field we were in. The kind that is good cover for the birds. It was small so I just let my dog Kona wonder in while I walked around it. I was carrying a double barreled 12 ga. and just had it hanging at arm’s length in front of me. Suddenly Kona flushed a rooster of course surprising the crap out of me. I swung the shotgun and made a great shot dropping the bird. One of my buddies exclaimed, “Did you just shot that bird from the hip”? Sure enough I had not shouldered the gun, I just dropped it from the hip.

    With a gun?? probably taking out a crow in the air with a .22 (it was at the farm and the area was safe) I have a red dot on that gun and we went around the barn to go plinking and the crow took off and I shot NEVER thought I would get him. With a Bow I shot a ground hog @ 108 yards one time.

    Shooting clays in my buddies yard...we were practicing the trick shots like Tom Knapp. They threw two out over a big empty bottom pretty far apart so I had some time I shot the first one with the gun upside down then flipped it pumped it and caught the second just before it hit the ground. Couldnt do it again if I had to.

    When I was a kid, I had a CO2 pistol in a western rig and did a quick-draw/point-shot a noisy crow off a power line from about 75' away. It was one of those where I knew I had it even as I was drawing.

    We were pulling up to camp and a fox was in camp eating our dove carcasses. We startled him and he takes off into a ravine...I chase him, with my XD.40 and stop at the top of the ravine. He hesitated, at 22 yards, for a glance back at us. I pull up the XD and fire. Perfect shot, drops him. My buddy could not believe it, lol, as he does not shoot his pistol much. I told him that is what you can do if you actually shoot them occasionally, lol.

    I was showing off a wrist rocket sling shot to my brother. He took it, put a stone in it, spun around and let fly from the hip. 50ft away, crash. I had to pay for a new humming bird feeder.

    Floating down a river in a raft after an unsuccessful bear hunt. Shot a duck in flight @ about 20 yds with a 22 revolver.
    I can't say it was skill.

    Oh have had quite a few one in a million shots that I couldn't do again and probably some I shouldn't admit.

    1. I was about 15 with my .38 revolver and shot a running jack rabbit at 52 yards.
    2. Pheasant with a youth bow 18 yards just as he flew up
    3. Coyote through the jaw as he looked behind him on a dead run at 760 yards (the shot was left of him and he turned right into it)
    4. Turkey with a bow at 72 yards never even flopped around just died
    5. 3 canadian geese in one shot with a twelve guage
    6. 800+ yard shots on prarie dogs (luck wasted more ammo trying than hits made)
    7. 20 for 20 on clays with an old single shot 4.10 now im lucky if i'm one for 5

    My buddy and I were shooting our P220's at empty shotgun shells standing up about 20 yards out. Super tough shot to even hit one. My buddy manages to hit the shell. It flips around in the air and lands, upright, in exactly the same spot where it first stood. Nice

    Cool

    Running across to the Bahama's out in the middle of the gulfstream with nothing for miles and miles when we spot a mostly deflated helium ballon used in keeping live baits close to the surface floating off the port bow about 35 yards away. We throttle back in 2-3 ft seas and I take out my 6906 from the center console of the 28' Whitewater and make a snap shot offhand from the rolling boat. The ballon explodes in a shower of spray and that night when we are in Treasure Key all my fishing buddies talk about at the bars is the great shot "Wyatt Earp" made on the way over.

    I've had a couple fun shots that were just luck, but probably my best intentional shooting was at a quarter size spinner target at 75ft, open sights on an ancient bolt action .22, standing. I think I rang it ten times without a miss. My dad and his buddy standing next to me couldn't even see the target well, let alone touch it with the .22. They intended to lay down and try at it a bit, and decided not to bother at that point, hehe.

    I was rather proud of going 30/30 shooting clays a number of times with a horrid old mossberg pump 12ga clone knockoff. Had to stop after each set and re-tighten the barrel screw to keep it from flopping around, and the stock screw kept backing out too.

    One of the scariest shooters I ever saw in person was a retired Marine friend of mine who could shoot skeet with a 10/22 almost as well as I could with a 12ga.

    This first one wasn't me, it was my dad and I'll post on his behalf since he is hunting ducks in heaven.

    My dad, me, older brother, grandad and the friend who owned the land, were duck hunting from the bank of the Pecos river in west Texas. Ducks fly down the river to a reservoir and its a blast (no pun intended) to get 'em.
    We were all stretched out apart from each other down the bank and 3 came screaming down the river. All of us take shots at these ducks and not even a feather comes off in the air. My dad is the last in the line and I see him raise his Winchester 1300 full choke and fire all 3 shots quite rapidly BAM BAM BAM, followed by thud...thud...thud....them hitting the ground dead.
    At 11 years old I just sat there staring in amazement.
    Still brings a smile to my face remembering it.

    Not anything outstanding, but was weird.......
    I had my Win '94 30-30 24" out shooting with my older brother. We sat some beer cans up on the ground to shoot with rifle and pistols. I hadn't shot the Winchester in awhile. About 15 yards out I line up the sights on the can, aiming for the second O in the word Coors. Pop the round, dirt flys up behind the can....can still sitting there. I'm shocked, no way I missed that. Chamber another, aim for same O. Again dirt flys up, can still sitting there, never so much as shook. I'm ticked at this point and have to go look at it as there is NO WAY I missed it once much less TWICE. Get to can and there is the hole in the middle of the O. I had put 2 rounds through same spot but the can didn't go over. I'd never thought a can would do that.

    I did shoot a coyote @ 75 yards with that 30-30...right between the eyes. Won wager with my buddy shooting his scoped 22-250 saying I couldn't hit him in the head with only iron sights at that distance

    Oh, and there was the time in the academy a group of us were shooting at one of the guy's land, had targets setup in a ravine about 20-25 yds away. Group of guys shoot COM, bragging/trash talking about their groups, etc. I step up with my G21 and put eyes and a smile on the head a la Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, wasn't as perfect as that but close enough to make them stare at me speechless for a few seconds LOL. That won't ever happen again.
