40 yards between the eyes! With a .40 nonetheless, numerous times......

Hunting with a bow or a pistol is illegal here. Something i agree with few people are as accurate with a handgun or a bow as a rifle. Neither will do the same damage as a rifle. If you want a rifle for shooting foxes here for example the police will usually require you to use a center fire cartridge before issuing you with a permit for the firearm.

That guy is an asshat for using a compact pistol, then video taping himself goofing about him only being accurate to 10 yards.

Extremely irresponsible.
