It's further away. You can't shoot 10 feet away from 3/8"- 1/2" thick steel plates unless you want to wear some of it back. Haven't you ever shot steel plates before?
It wasn't steel plates...it was matches with brush as a backdrop =2nd video....I didn't watch the first.



EDIT: Okay it was officially 20' with a .22lr and he shot the match in half...not the tip off...meh, good shot, not great....can't stand the guy.

The steel plates were behind it though. They held the matches with clothes pins. If a .22 hit one...look out at less than that distance...peeeeeeeeeeeew.

These are some of the ones we shoot on our PD combat course. I pulled them out before the snow hit and am repainting them. Cheap spray paint...you just shoot it off anyway. It makes them easier to see when the weeds grow up during the Spring and Summer. Sometimes pieces of the jackets bounce off them too. You don't want to be less then about 20-25'. This set up is typically shot at 20 yards (60').

Relevance? Or you just trying to impress me with your knowledge of 4 syllable words and greater?

And balkanization refers to fragmentation that results in hostile and no-cooperative entities.

Ahhhhhhh, no need to be condescending my all-knowing liberal friend. It might surprise you to know that some of us crazy gun owners actually do have college degrees and, unfortunately, are every bit as intelligent as those on your side who love to throw nothing but lies, slander and scare tactics around as gospel.


I know exactly what the word means, and it's happening daily, right before your eyes; your eyes are unfortunately in la-la land dreaming of some John Lennon 'Imagine' world that will never happen.

What's wrong can dish it but can't take it? Or can only you be condescending?

And keep building up the liberal straw man argument.... You know what they say about making ASSumptions?

Not surprising at all. Get this, I know intelligent, Republican, college educated, gun owning folks who feel the same way as me! But sure keep building that strawman.... all liberals = anti gun nuts all conservative = gun nuts.

So more condescending, insulting talk.... I guess when you don't have any facts... all you go do is talk about la-la land and john lennon.....
