B. Law using a Sig .45 shoots a 1 gallon jug that is about 20ft away and also hits the 2nd jug that is higher and to the left and is about 60ft away,
sitting on a stump ...with the same bullet. Amazing.

Now that's some shootin'!

Here's Minerals with his new build. A sweet 9mm AR.

I'm gonna put a call in for mobile artillery with canister shot to take out these bandits with their AR 15 pea-shooters. Then, some flame throwing tanks to take care of any dug in snipers. Score: Bandits with AR 15s: 0, Mobile artillery with HE and canister: 25.

Stzzo, We need to explain how a bullets path changes when it hits something?
It works similar to calculating angles for pool shots.
The water in the jug changed the trajectory of the bullet enough to score a direct hit on a target off to the left and above of the original flight path.
Not to mention it was 3 times as far away.

As for the tannerite, well this was not a Tannerite day, but trust me, we have plenty.

Show me your Tannerite videos and I'll show you mine.

Edit: Bruce, I like your thinking but, what happens when the bandits are too close to use artillery?

How is the slug spinning? CCW or CW. Elementary, but can this account for tailing left? It seems it should be rotating (spinning) CCW. Ore am I full of Ron?

Physics? Fancy-pantstrics, more like...

Anybody could figure that shot out with practice, and practice, and practice...

And some talent.

And some more practice.

And Allah's blessing.

Riley, that will be investigated at a future test session.
Bryan has lots of custom hand loads of different bullet types and weights he needs to test.
He already has most of the chrono data.

Haha, thats pretty damn lucky.

I once hit a 20oz soda bottle with a Glock .40 cal sub-compact at about 120ft without really even aiming. I was bragging that I could easly shoot that rifle target with my pistol to my girlfriend because it was so close. She called my bluff, so I drew my pistol, squeezed off a round and hit it square in the center in about one second of aiming. She was shocked, but I was totally floored it actually hit much less came close. Of course, I totally played it off like that was the norm and no longer needed to prove myself to anyone with a follow up shot.

It was pretty damn lucky.

Is luck what results from years of practice?
I don't think so.

Ok, it might have been luck.

I doubt even Minerals could pull off this shot twice.
