    So I'm watching a Seagal movie, and he has matches set into a board, and shoots and lights them.

    A day later, I see it done on Mythbusters, and the feat is real.

    I often challenge a range buddy to feats of derring-do, and this seems a reasonable challenge, but I'd like 2 or 3 similar challenges, to make a sort of Olympic level "You're buying dinner" challenge.

    Give me ideas.

    I watched a show a few years back on outdoor network with some old guy who was handy as heck w/ 6 shooters. He was lighting Ohio Blue tips that were stuck on a hitchin rail.
    I was able to light ONE match after going through nearly half a box of matches using my Ruger 77/22. I was only about 30' away though. I think the guy on the program was 20 yards away and using a pistol. I kept shooting the tip off the match, if I tried to just skate it by, I would miss.

    For the older guys, back in the day, there was a commercial, 70's, I think, where a guy shot a sheet of paper and made a sort of connect the dots Indian Chief head.

    I'm trying to figure out how to make my Official J.D. Hostage targets. I'd like a classic Dillinger avatar face on a body, with an alien or zombie behind it, holding a knife on our hero. Ideally, only a couple inches of brainpan would be exposed, you'd have to nail the shot on the bad guy without getting any of the J.D.:eek:

    When we had down time on the range during qualifications my firearms instructors use to compete to see who bought the beer after work. We took a cardboard target backing and stapled metal clips on the back of the target edge where you could not see the clip. We would put 4 clips along the edge about 6 inches apart. We would then clip a quarter, nickel, penny and dime wit maybe ¾ of the coin showing. My Instructors would start with the quarter and work down, the Instructor who was last to shoot the coins off bought the beer for all the other instructors. Each Instructor had his own set up like this so they were shooting against each other at the same time. targets were set about 15 yards out and we started from the duty holster and hands in surender postion above the line of the sholders. You could not shoot the clip (that’s why we put the clips hidden behind the cardboard) you had to shoot the coin. It got pretty heated sometimes, after all beer was at stake.

    When you can light a match at 300 yards while killing a red tail hawk and banking it off of a 2" steel plate (That is 2" in dia) and killing a field mouse. Oh and you have to do this with a Lorcin 32acp.

    Then you can call your self a heck of a shooter.

    JD does not approve of this shooting challenge. I have my good looks to think about here. Not to mention I see NO good reason to let my brains out for a little walky around my body.

    You want a real challenge Benning?

    Get a bottle of Nyquil or Advil liquid gels.

    Using clear tape, attach 5 of them to a pistol target, either in a line or at various heights, and run that target out to 15 feet.

    5 rounds.

    See how many you can hit.

    We have done this challenge for YEARS and it's great fun. You know instantly if you got the target, and you get mocked instantly when you miss. LOL

    32ACP is a little stiff for me.

    I'm tender-wristed.:eek:

    I would challenge my step-son to a shoot off.
    Targets - used 12 ga hulls.
    Range - 25 yards
    He got to use his 10-22, prone
    I used either my Sigma 9 or 40
    He got first shot at each target. If he missed, the next shot was mine.
    He was a rookie and shot about 50%
    I rarely missed

    He got to hate that game.

    Sometimes you use what is available. For skilled shooters, 12ga hulls at 50 yards are challenging with most handguns.

    A friend of mine (former range master and precision rifle shooter) would play at 100 yards in the summer by shooting the grasshoppers off the target stands. With a 6mm Rem.

    That was the Savage Indian head chief (Native American leader) and the gun that was used was a savage Model 99 I believe in 300 savage. they did this to prove just how accurate the model 99 lever action was. To be honest that was one lever gun that was light years ahead of its time.

    the gun store had a signed metal plate with that logo on it. It was done back when shooting exhibitions were in full swing.

    !2 ga hulls @ 25 yds are my standard .22 pistol target. (Good approximation of head-neck area of spruce chicken.) 50 yds would be challenging. Beer cans (empty of course) are fun at 75-100. With my .357, the .45 just doesn't seem to group them quite that well. A hit with it out there is more luck than good judgement.

    So I wanna make one of these, but superimpose member's heads onto the hostage, then hopefully rescue my forum brothers and sisters, with my shabby Mosin (carbine) at 1500 meters.

    Sadly, I cannot scope this rifle.:eek:
