My best was with a H&R .32 SxW Long: A fox ran across the road and I took a fast shot while I was moving and of course missed. But I got stopped and the fox had stopped out in a field so I took aim and raised it up and fired and he didn't even wiggle. I had hit him right under the eye so I paced it off and it was 110 paces.My brother in law was so fasinated he wouldn't sell the hide he tanned it for me to hang on the wall. He said "you will get more fun out of telling that story than I could ever buy with 20 dollars".

I tend to concur, a missed shot is due to either operator error or weapon malfunction.

Does it have to be with a .22 or rimfire??

the luckiest shot i have ever made was a shot from a bb pistol. i was walking back to my house when i was about 15 and a bird flew past the space between the 2 houses i was walking between. i just swung the pistol up and fired once in its general direction and caught it right in the breast. it went down about 30 yards later. it was amazing and in no way was it skill it was true luck regardless of what anyone says.

Mine was dove hunting a few years back. Two of them were flying together. The trailing bird was a little behind and to the left. They started turning, and were about side by side when I shot. Got them both with one shell. Pure luck, no doubt about it.

My first rabbit was shot in the bridge of the nose at a full run as he leapt off a snowbank with a .22 at 20 yards.
I shot a goose through the neck at 50 yards with a .270 Winchester a couple years later while kneeling in the mud and shooting through a tunnel in the brush. The rest of my awesome shots were all skill, and we don't have the bandwidth to permit me to recount them all.

I guess my best shot was on a blackbird with a Red Ryder BB Gun when I was about 12 years old..He flew towards me I missed on 1 st shot coming at me...I reloaded right quick and got him in the chest as he flew just pass me..He hit the ground..flipped and got up...finished him off with one to the head at point blank range...

One more...I have a Thompson Enocore 460 S&W Pistol with a Burris scope..it has a 14in barrel...I was riding my 4 wheeler one evening and a doe ran in front of me..I tried to stop..still kind of rolling and shot missed...I reloaded and shot her running at 50 yards. I hit her in the hip and broke her back. She flipped over and tried to get away..I finished her off with my Glock 40 at 5 yards...The good thing is I really did not lose that much meat..I shoot Hornaday 200g SST bullets...Those bullets with my barrel are going about 2600fps..That is what the Ballistics say from SSK Industires, which is where I got my barrel from.

You can see in the left corner of the screen a 5 gallon bucket..You can kind of see just how big the hole is by comparing it to the bucket..

Here is a pic of the doe...
