A bet on the range
 
Got me a couple of dollars at the range.
The bet was made that at 25 yards, a shooter could not knock off the filter of a cigarette with one shot.

We let one guy staple the cigarette on the target and a couple tried and failed.
When I was up, I stapled a new cigarette so the cigarette was up right (not sideways as originally stapled).

Aiming at a cigarette that is up right versus sideways give you elevation anywhere on the cigarette, all you have to do is work on windage.

You are right but that is still some great shooting at 25 yards in one shot!!!
What gun was used?

Normal cigarette.
I was using an old S&W 15-2 that had sight work done (original sights leave something to be desired). 148 gr wad cutters.
Using a two hand hold.

I'm trying to say I can't believe no one else calls anybody out on BS like this, geez.

This is like the cowboy movie where someone pulls out an old, abused, never cleaned .45 Colt after drinking for an hour in the saloon and shoots a cowboy off a horse galloping away at full speed 100 yards away one-handed.

But it's a piece of cake if you turn the cigarette so it's vertical:rolleyes:

My fil talks about being at deer camp, shooting a beer can, single shot from a .38 spl... at 100 yards. He admitted to me it was sheer pure luck, and said when they asked him to do it again, he passed and said it would be showing off.

Hitting a cigarette at 25 yds is like hitting a beer can at 250 yds.
