    Showoff. I want to see him do that one handed from the hip, John Wayne style.

    Just kidding, don't flame me. Kudos to him. I know I could not have done it when my eyes were better than they are now, and that was years ago.

    If that was above board, that was impressive.

    I noticed he was smart enough to not try it again. Long range shooting is mostly in the head. You use all the same skills. Practice is what it takes. Several on this forum could make that shot with enough time and money and devotion,which few have without a sponsor. I don't mean to make light of his skill. He has put in many hours of work to get where he is. That is his profession And has to have fired many thousands of dollars of ammo. Most of us just never will get the time and money to develop the skills we have to that level. Most would be surprised what they could accomplish,but will never get the chance to go that far. very good shooting.
