Try it out. If you can hit enough for bulls-eye shooting, it is not as hard as you think.

The S&W is maybe a little more tricked out than just sights.

I was born and raised in Mobile, AL & I can testify that no one from LA (lower Alabama) would spin tall tales!!!
I believe the story and will try it myself. Not sure if my eyes are up to the task but I bet my 16 year old son could do this.

I believe him I have no reason not to. I know several people that could make that shot.

That is a pretty gun!! I couldn't hit anything without a tripod to hold up all the equipment.

It can be done with a pencil:


But he is not using my S&W 15-2

I bet I could do it with my 1911. I will try with a pencil. I dont smoke. No way I am buying ciggs just to shoot one! I quit 17 years ago!
