Mine was with a Marlin 39A Golden Mountie carbine and CCI Mini Mag on a standing ground squirrel. 206 LONG paces away when I was 16. Dropped him like a stone.

Got a head shot on a small blackbird from about 80 yards with my 10/22 I thought it was pretty freaking lucky. But i did shoot at it like 4 times

I had sat down in my truck while getting ready to leave my private fishing hole when a turtles head popped up about 50 to 60 yrds. I asked my fishing buddy to hand me my Ruger Mark II. There is no way I missed. My buddy made the comment (We won't need to worry about him taking our bait.)

Don't you just love that 39A Golden Mountie? I sure do mine. It is 1967 vintage. I can't tell you how many tens of thousands of rounds I have put through that barrel over the years.

As for my luckiest shot, it was when I was growing up on a farm in SE Missouri. I was out hunting with a Mossberg Model 44US(b) bolt action rifle. It was designed as a military training rifle. It had a heavy barrel with peep sights. (It weighed over nine pounds.) Anyway a quail flew up. I don't know why I did it, but I shot at it. It went down and when I picked it up, its head was gone.

How about the luckiest DEER alive? M-14 rifle field fire range. We had SIXTY shooters on line, line was hot, had just given command LOAD one 10 rd magazine- when an albino deer ran out onto the range at about 150 meters. My SGT working the tower (and PA) said "Aw, hell- you know you are going to anyway. Shoot the deer." All 60 shooters opened fire. Bits of bushes, dirt, twigs flying in the air. Deer ran completely across the range and disappeared into the woods. SIX HUNDRED rounds, no deer.

I think the 39A is the best .22 ever made. I have the carbine that my stepfather bought shortly after he came home from WW2, and a new style rifle that a customer gave me, NIB.

And those Mossberg 44's are outstanding, too.

I don't have lucky shots. All my shots are shots of skill.

well, I was twelve and had moved to the country. I started getting good with my pellet gun. I saw a bird fly thru the air and I hit it. I dropped the pellet gun out of sheer shock and saw I had actually killed it. It was only 10 yards away when I shot at it, but I was amazed.

I gave my brother his luckiest shot. He was using a marlin .22 lr at the range. he was having trouble with the 100 yard target, just danced around the bullsete to no avail. I had the same gun in .22 win mag with a 4x scope, so I gave him a hand and put one in the X ring. He still talks about how he scored that perfect bullseye

I have had many, but I guess I can narrow it down to two. Both with my Browning 241 ATD. I shot a cottontail at 120 yards, just pulled up, took aim, and fired. Hit him right in the head between the eye and the ear. While I was in grad school my roomate and I were at his family farm collecting insects and mites. A duck flew over about 50 yards high. I pulled up on it, swung through and touched off a round. Hit it dead center in the breast. Got some really neat feather mites off that widgeon. I used to shoot sparrows and pigeons in the air with my BB gun when I was a kid on the farm. TB
