And sorry for the bad pun......  ::)

ON THE ONE HAND, it's incredible what single-minded people with good eye-hand coordination can do with 10 years of constant practice.

ON THE OTHER HAND, this is the day of photoshop, video-tricks, and self-promotion, and I'll maintain a healthy skepticism until/unless someone on hand can verify some of these things ... !

If he's really doing it, it's pretty amazing ....

  That guy is even faster and more accurate than Legolamb.  Legolamb also liked to stick an arrow in a dorks throat then pull it out and shoot a different dork with it.  I saw him do this when they were defending the deep.  He even stair surfed while shooting multiple dorks.

After seeing what trained folks can do in fast draw pistol I have no doubt someone is capable of doing what he appears to be doing. Still, it would better to see it in person.

But it takes practice.

Pretty cool but the shooting the soda can top and splitting the arrow on a knife seem a little much.

That guy split an arrow that was fired at him, with another arrow. Now that is impressive.

My Glock .45 seems a bit less modern, having seen this video.

Hard to say if it's all real.  At times it appeared to be genuine, and at others it seemed like a Saturday Night Live skit.  I wouldn't be surprised to find out it's all real.  Hitting a pop-top tab, if it happened, took many tries. 

When I was in elementary school I decided I was going to light a non-safety match with a BB.  I had an indoor target that trapped the BBs, and for many days I shot at matches.  After taking 1/2 the white tip off the red match head a couple times, I decided that no matter how accurate I was, the match wasn't going to light.  But all it took was a couple thousand shots to hit the mark a couple times.  If I had been able to video this and edit out all the missed shots, it would have looked pretty cool.

I read that young plains indians developed their skills by walking through the grass & shooting arrows at the grasshoppers they flushed. Sounded a bit far fetched (fletched??) when I read it, but after seeing what this guy can do.....

 Grasshoppers were much larger in those days.

Yep, it does seem to be real.  Just another trick shot type.  He is good.  A bit theatrical but, that is what sells at a show.

Splitting an arrow, hitting aerial targets, catching an arrow, etc are all std trick shots.  Many good archers can do them and have been doing them for a long time.  I had not seen a split an arrow in the air trick, but, don't consider it outside the skill set of any good trick shooter.

Yep, archery is just a sport for most of the modern world.  I have my bows and I have my guns.  Archery is great at stress relief, I can shoot in my driveway and doesn't cost much.

It would take many years and hours to develop one archer.

The Marine Corps can get better results with recruits in a couple hours on a range with an m-16.



People that excel with a rifle, takes much more than a couple hours of training. Especially taken your average recruit. You can get "acceptable" results, but not exceptional results; and this fellow is exceptional. Doubly so for pistol shooting.
