Again, not to knock you, but what you call splitting a card and what I do are two totally different things, so that too led to my comment due to misinterpretation and usage of terminology.

I can see it possible to do what you've claimed to, easily enough for a practiced person, however at 20ft, rather than yards. I maintain my BS meter until I see otherwise. I have no problems eating my own words when those words are the more likely and logical to be correct, given the circumstances, aforementioned.
It was 20 yards i dont know of,any range around that measures in feet...confused

Nobody said anything about level ground or moon walking here. I honestly didn't even read your posts until now, just the first page. I'm not calling you a liar, just pointing out the liklihood of your being honest.

Here's why I would've been right to, though, had I...

Your balloon trick:

During description you talk about clipping the string with the first shot, then bursting the floating bubble with the second. Had you left it there, even, I'd consider it unbelievable until I saw it, however, you didn't. You then go on to note how easy it is to hit the balloon, due to its slower than commonly thought rise. Who, with half an ounce of comprehensive capabilities would consider that the hard part? A balloon is what, at least 6" broad when blown fully, and that's your standard balloon, the party type are a foot across. A staw of twine tied to it is, what, like 1/32 of an inch, generously? You completely bypass what would actually be the hard shot, giving the appearance of shrugging off what would actually prove to provide difficulty. Thus giving me all I needed to consider your claims akin in BSery to that of the OP.

Light a strike anywhere match.
I did it once at 50 yards with a 22 but it took a lot of shots, ductape, and matches. Fiddled with it at 100 yards with a 223 but no luck yet.
I couldn't imagine Doug it with a hand gun though

my take on it is you guys are starting to shoot way wide of the range markers...
