I wouldn't want you shooting at me at 60 ft.

If a man can make you mad just by talking, then he is far brighter than you.

I assume you meant that by what you see here is good shooting?

That'll get the job done, son! Rapid fire, or paced shots?

Still in the "Getting Used To It" Phase. Maybe 2 or 2.5 Sec between each shot. I still feel that I could have donr better accuracy wise.

Good shooting Snake

Center mass grouping is pretty good and the one flyer is a definit stop shot...

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

that was shot #1 and I was aiming dead center when that shot went off. Maybe a funky load? Beats the hell outta me. Left me scratchin my head. But the rest was a "Cardbaord Kill" for sure.

It's a solid C if not a wide "A" on a Paladin Competition Target.

I tried the syrup chugging thing. It was only about half a bottle, and goddamn, it sits like a lead weight in your stomach, then the sugar rush comes later.

I . 3 oz glass
2. 8 teaspoons instant coffee
3. 12 packets of sugar
4. 8 drops of water

Stir contents until it all turns into Orange Foam Paste that fluffs up as air is beat into it.

Add hot water, down in as few swallows as you can and hang on for then next 9 hours...

LOL

Had a Old Deep Sea charter Capitan show me that when I had a hangover years back. Only once, I cringe now when I think of it...

The first shot would most likely ended anything right off the bat...

As far as why it happened, you might have had too much finger on the trigger first shot and adjusted without noticing on the follow up shots. A number of things...

I'll look and see if I can find the Pie Diagram, this shows slices in a circle. You look at your target and then at the pie, it will explain what you are probably doing by where your shots hit...

This is a PDF so it won't show up but you can download from the link I'm sure.

Picturing that setting on a human chest/Torso area, the flyer would have most likely "Winged" him. And assuming he shoots left handed them that would have dis-armed him.

Pie diagream sounds good. PM me the link if ya can. However I got to run. Got college homework. Fucking NEC codes. But hey its fun to read about the eletricle do's and donts.

Have a good one pal.

Placement.

By looking at the target and what is behind it, I would say that round hit 1 and a 1/2 Coffee Cups off center target...

Lung, Kidney, Intestines, Spleen depending if it hit bone and the direction it deflected or where the fragments ended up...

That or you got some seriously HUGE Coffee Cup,s Dish Soap and or Deep ass Drinking Glasses.
