    Omg...I'm not sure if ever pick up a gun again if I did that. I would officially 'retire'!:neener:

    Ha! And here I am struggling to keep MOA at 200 yards with my 7 lbs. .270. It's only a LITTLE emasculating.

    Where else but West Texas... Great shot, but the scenery makes me homesick for the ranch...

    That was indeed, Colby from Top Shot at the end. He is quite a good shooter himself, and he is apparently only getting better.

    it does take a decent amount of skill to shoot offhand. the distance isn't what's impressive because the target is larger proportionally than a standard high power target shot at 200 yards.

    however, there's also a lot of luck in there too, since that's not exactly a sub-moa rifle

    Which is fine, because your typical torso silhouette is about 2.0 MOA at 1000yd. ;)

    Of course, I'm only reliably good for 8 or so MOA standing...
