Thread: lil test of gunhandling speed for you.

    lil test of gunhandling speed for you.

    Stand with your airsoft pistol in one hand, 2 soda cans in the other. Arms should be fully outstretched, in front of you, at nose height. You feet should be shoulder width apart, toes, hips and shoulders aligned. Hold the gun palm down, it's a bit faster. Finger outside the trigger guard, safety engaged if the gun has one, drop the cans, step back with one foot, shoot both cans in mid air. The first one is, easy, at about waist height. The other will be at the top of your shoe, and is hard to hit. u have to MOVE that gun in order to get both hits. You also have to move that foot, or take a big chance of shooting it. ASAP after the drop, jerk your gun elbow back to your rib cage, so that moving your arm is less of an arc. your elbow ends up sort of back in your armpit.:-) in order to reliably make these hits. After you get really reliable at this, you can try it with live ammo.

    The only time I've had to actually fire, This is the position that I fired from, braining a dog that was trying to attack my crotch. The .22 to the top of his head dropped him so suddenly that I heard his chin hit the sidewalk. This was at night. I heard him snarling, drew the Ruger from under my coat. heard his chain dragging on pavement, but did not know its anchor point or length. I saw him just in time to point the weapon down at his head, and fired. I have several times now had my gun feel like it just "grew out of my wrist". :-) You need it, and THERE IT IS, in your hand. Then you do what is needed in the way of making it fire, if need be. It's a truly wonderful revelation about what serious training can do for you.

    There I was, practicing with my Ruger Hawkeye, .256 Magnum. I threw up four soda cans, aimed with my single shot pistol, the round went through two cans immediately, and then ricocheted to hit the other two before any of them hit the ground. If you don't practice like this, then sometime when up against a gang of soda cans, that just could be the end of your life. Trust me, Denny Tueller taught me that piece of trick shootin' and I've been trainin' like that since I was 12.

    As a matter of fact I have done the EXACT SAME THING!!! But with a task this simple I prefer to use my Red Ryder BB gun with the compass in the stock...

    Heck, if you can't toss two dimes in the air and end shoot them turning them into four nickels, you ain't nothing.

    I remember when I was young I set up a pop bottle and shot a 22 strait up in the air and it came right down in the bottle. I want to try it with a 50 cal into a half inch pipe.
