    I've heard a fair amount of funny versions of the phrase "minute of angle" when describing a rifle's practical accuracy, such as:

    -Minute of Buck
    -Minute of Squirrel
    -Minute of Watermelon
    -Minute of Pizza Box
    -Minute of Pie Plate
    -Minute of Nazi (in reference to the Mosin Nagant)
    -Minute of Dissident (Describing AK47 accuracy)

    What is your version of minute of ______?

    I heard minute of mattress on here awhile back, to describe a shot with a certain rifle at 1000 meters.

    And today, actually....MOA stood for Minute of Arrow. A friend and I were taking turns with the .22, trying to shoot an arrow out of a tree that someone got it stuck in....Lemme tell yea...Aluminum arrows are TOUGH! We ran through 3 10 round magazines shooting this thing at 30 yards, hitting and missing frequently. By the time we were done, the arrow was riddled with holes but still hanging on in the tree. I shot it 1 final time and it finally gave up the fight, lol.

    I say that a friend's .50-70 Sharps conversion carbine shoots Minute of Commanche.
    But of course that is Ethnically Insensitive.

    I use Minute of Pop Can. If I can hit a pop can offhand at 50 yards with a rifle, I figure that's good enough for me. :)
