My Grandmothers living room...faces hole # 7 at the local golfing course.
Take the screen out of her window, and set up my tri-pod on the dinning table. The golfers are more than 100 yards away, this is safe!
They are also perpindicualr to my line of shooting.
I advise ...DO NOT EVER DO THIS...ITS NOT SAFE
My Grandfather left me a 1972 Anschutzs .177 recoiless pellet rifle, accuracey factory guaranty is .03" @ 50 meters. paid around $500 back then for
it, in Germany.
I have the 24x Lyman scope on it still.
Long story short is , it is 73 paces to the green "thats what I'm zeroed @"
From G-ma's dinner table , that is.
Par 3 hole.....the guys that land within 2-5 feet of the hole, while celebrating and talking amongest their group, its the re-actions they have when
their ball, miracuracy, jumps off the green.
Better yet when it happens to the second guy too.
My other favorite hobby is shooting bumble bees off the tulip tree at about 30 yards away, .......I limit myself to no more than one bee-kill per
I kinda like the critters, and don't like to just mass murder them.
Taking the nut out of a squirrells hands is a bit amusing , and I'm sure suprising to him.
But as far as lucky shot a was walking with a pal,heading out to do some squirrell hunting remington model 510 bolt action single shot
He jokinglysaid"I don't think you can hit a crow in flight"
....flying awaay from us....I did n ot answer, raised my gun aimed really high, lead it bunches....shot and 3-5 seconds later it dropped.
NO I'm not that good!
We steped it off it was close to 125 yrds away, but I shot it in flight, IT WILL NEVER happen again!
