OK, We did a little playing around with it today. I posted some videos on Youtube, they are marginal quality (new camera, clueless operator (me) so keep that in mind). I am using the automatic focus feature on the camera.
There are two videos, one from the shooting bench and one checking targets. I don't have a good enough zoom to be able to get the target on video from the shooting bench, and I have not (yet) set up a camera stand at the target. The range is 20 yards measured.
Bottom line they are able to hit the match heads and sometimes they smoke off- but none of them lit. It looks like it is doable but it was too cold out to shoot for more than about a half hour. They are using .22 LR, a Ruger 10-22 with a 49 scope and a Remington 413 Targetmaster (bolt action) with iron sights.
I would say that a cigarette would also be doable, especially with a larger round, even with a pistol.
