    Interesting sound delay times in that clip...............and I assume you did stop and restart the camera between first shot and second shot.
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    The sound delay of the hit is because the plate is 200yrds away from the camera.
    and yes, its 2 clips strung together.

    Simply fantastic to see Hendrik470
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Very nice. and as said above the location of the deck and surroundings looks fantastic.

    Brilliant but you need to train the waving leg technique out of him Hendrik470.

    He is like an octopus on P - always has a limb going and like most other kids his age he can't keep still for a minute unless he is staring at a bloody ipad.
