Good video, think CA357 posted this one last week. Still good to watch again though.

Obviously that is a guy who learned to shoot back in the day when you were shooting to put food on the table and didn't have a lot of spare ammo.

He definitely has some great skills, especially at 84, because at 1,000 yards there is a whole lot of chaff and very, very little wheat.

*RESPECT!*

I was fortunate enough to see the show. Mr. Gundy is one of the last of the breed.

Great story...and damn, 3 head shots at 1,000 yds the first time touching that rifle. *Respect*
