Is it harder with a 22? Bob Munden says, no.
The suggestion keeps showing up in the e-mail:
"Yeah, Bob cut the card with a .45, but doing that with a much smaller .22 bullet would be much more difficult."
So we challenged Bob Munden with that thought... and he finds the .22 shots to be much easier than his .45.
Shooting USA's Impossible Shots this week.
Great show Jim. If your having trouble challenging Bob's skills-double down.
Have him shoot dual(2) pistols and cut a playing card in 3rds with two 22's shot
I would enjoy seeing him do that and have my doubts that it's been by anyone before.
That would truly be an impossible shot. Also having him redo the the long distance bond derringer shot would be cool. This time have him hit the balloon rather than just the steel plate. Not that it is not impressive enough to hit the plate at that distance. The balloon popped from the lead fragments off the steel.
I once heard Byron Ferguson say..."the center of the target is always the same size, no matter what the size of the object. The center is always the same size." In his case that size is the diameter of his target tip on the arrow.
I would guess that that with Bob Munden the same principle applies. When you are that good at putting bullets where you want them, the center of your target is always that, the center. And that is where the center of your projectile is going to go.
