    That's some pretty good shoot'n FOUR4D4.
    Especially with iron sights. My eyes aren't that good anymore.
    Tell me - how can you stand to shoot that Thumper? You're more of a man than I am. I owned one of the 444's over 30 years ago when I was a tough young buck. Couldn't stand the recoil then - certainly couldn't stand it now. About 6 shots and back to the barn for me.

    As for the "match trick". I was just joking with ya. I don't know what he was shooting at. Too far away for my old eyes. :p Joking again.

    hombre243. I never tried the match in the straw trick as a kid. The box says - "Keep away from children." I guess I could try it now??
    More jokes - when will it ever stop? Ya see - at my age, I still care. It just doesn't matter much anymore. Life is too short to take everything serious.

    May I add to the statement now.

    That feat was not that hard to do !
    My young fella was in the Australian Army for 6 years, and he taught me that if you shoulder the rifle, pointed down, and when you lift it up to sight, you have eliminated one dimension, ie left and right fields. Therefore at first sight of the matchbox, let drive, and you can hit it 8 out of 10 times.

    Well we'll

    The problem was between the trigger and the ground.
    Me old mate Bill picked it immediately.
    I was compensating for a scope that was not lined up properly.
    So after a lecture and some practical work from Old Bill, everything was on target, and several good sideways taps made no difference to the MOA still under 1" at 100 yds, and that's plenty good enuf for hunting

    Pretty nice groups at a 100 meters Bucky. That will get it done.

    That's the honest to God's truth. Most people take themselves way to seriously. Nobody gets off this spinning rock alive...lighten up and enjoy yourself.
