    Most Presbyterians I know would freak out and run away from a demon. A Watties demon......well, that could force them to go live in a different time zone.

    @Dundee
    Got a Stirling 1400 w/2.5X cheapie given to me by BIL.
    Shoots better than I can, with whatever I feed it.
    Most shots under 75 M though.

    Well Max, the choice of which religious representative to act as validator is simple really. We want Dundee to have a fair unweighted opportunity of success. If a Catholic Priest was selected this would be unfair to Dundee as the shot was from a prone position and having a Priest standing behind whilst lying prone would potentially affect Dundees concentration.
    An Anglican Minister would be no good as he / she would want to be paid. The same goes for a Jewish Rabbi. A Methodist would only attend if Dundee was a non drinker. A Muslim Cleric would be concerned that the Hare was facing Mecca. A Seventh Day Adventist Minister might turn out to be vegetarian and not approve. A Lutheran would want a Hare to take home to eat on Boxing Day. The list goes on and in the end we are left with selecting a Stoic Presbyterian Minister who wont turn from duty.

    On a school trip walked around Waikaremoana in gumboots. 40+ years ago.
    They were beauty on all the wet bits.
    Mind you used to run round in either barefeet ,gumboots or footy boots.
    Then graduated to lace up gumboots Ashleys? with No 8 wire laces.
    Wore them for years when shepherding.
    Picked up hay in often in jandels.

    A stoic Presbyterian would likely class @Dundee's attitude to tomato sauce as a perversion, an addiction, or both.

    I think the hare saw that gold plated trophy scope and played dead and the dog found it.

    Let us see you shoot a life size crouching hare target at the same place and same distance, to be verified and witnessed by the local Presbyterian Minister.
    Well at least if he missed the 2nd time he could always blame his rifle....well at least the stock or the scope, No one would argue!

    As previously reported I was shooting a roughly hare-sized alloy plate at 230m with a .22LR and CCI subs last week, after @rossi.45ís motivation. I think I hit the plate second shot? @Wingman will remember. Helps that heís set all dope. After that it was plink... plink...plink.

    So its 10 cred points from. Myth confirmed in my book.

    Naysayers probably havenía even tried!

    So @Dundee are you willing to accept my challenge and repeat your extraordinary feat of field marksmanship ? ( A suggestion to 'Mythbusters' perhaps?)
    It is he wheel tracks in the grass and the quad faced the wrong way that have created the doubt.
    Having been referred to as an 'unbeliever' at the start of the post is the reason that I suggested a clergyman validate the shot. If you cannot repeat, then the right person will be on hand to observe you repent.
