A Fun and Easy One - easy to set up, that is.

Post by g.willikers » Sun Jun 30, 2013 8:08 am

Here's a quickie, that's easy to set up, but hard to do.
It was on a recent Top Shot show, and popular elsewhere, too.
Try to put a .22 or pellet round through the center of a CD disc, without hitting the disk.
On the Top Shot show, they were doing it from 25 ft, standing and unsupported, using .22 rifles.
Wanna' try it and see if you're better than they were?
It must be harder than it looks.
So, setup a few CDs at 25 ft and hit the hole, but miss the CD.
If your range doesn't allow shooting stuff, just use a CD label with the center hole removed, pasted on the usual target backing.
I'm gonna' try it today with my trusty Gamo break barrel pellet rifle.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Almost, but not quite.
The other game in the link gives points for hitting either of the two circles, the small center and the whole thing.
This one only gives a score for hits that pass through the small center, without hitting the CD itself.
A hit anywhere out of the dead center hole gives no score.
I just tried it, standing and unsupported, like in the tv show.
Ten shots and only one good one.
Lots of close ones that would have scored points in the other version, though.
This version is much harder, even though it's closer at only 25 ft, as poor Gabby and a bunch of others found out in last weeks Top Shot.
Anyone else going to try?
