Hi to all here at Air gun head bangers ball. I recently purchased “Elliott on Airguns” personaly from Elliot and I am very impressed with this journal on air guns and what is basically 6 years of articles and his research on the subject. One topic covered was a topic called Mini Sniping. I found it interesting and I even felt I had something in comon with it. Because I too did Mini Sniping as a kid with my fathers old Brass Benjimin .22 cal. When ever I would go to the field and shoot if game was scarce and hard to find I just had to shoot something 😈
So I would shoot baby frogs,Black Widow spiders and Dragon Fly’s 😛
There would be these hugh Dragon Fly’s flying around and if they flew still or landed I would line em up with my iron sights and knock em to pieces. 😆
Since then we have all come a long way with air guns and what we can acheave with them. Here is a little shot of a female White tail skimmer Dragon Fly from about 10 yards. The Male has an all white ass and black marks on his wings and a black head and body. This one is the female. Many years ago Dragon Fly’s used to have a wing span of some 12″ to 20″! probably about 150 years ago 8) There two sets of wings can alter at a independance motion enabling the Dragon Fly to fly any way at any motion making it very hard for birds to chase.
Elliott’s journal has a situation where they shoot 9mm hand gun cases at distances up to 35 and 40 yards or so.
1.Does any one here have any thing unusual that they enjoy shooting that they might normally not say?
Beetles.Bugs …. Spiders….Or any other game of some field of Mini Sniping?September 8, 2007 at 1:17 am #24049walkonkingParticipant
We shoot action figures, batman, superman, wonder women etc. Some how they are unable to stop us.September 8, 2007 at 1:28 am #24050
This guy I work with was doing a 200 yard bench rest shoot. This rifle he was using was one of those colored high dollar bench rest models where the trigger is about 3 oz and it is just one of those real fine shooting rifles with all the fine machining to go with it,… once he came to work and showed me his paper. It had 3 holes on it. The hole in the middle was where 3 bullets went through the same hole at 200 yards. Then he pulled one slightly. Then there was one hole over a bit and I said “what happened here”?. He said look at it…. I still didn’t get it…
But then he clued me in and showed me that the hole had blood on it and he pulled it over there because at 200 yards he noticed a fly on his paper so he hit the fly at 200 yards.
Then he handed me another target and it was tighter and he said if the 5th shot went through the same hole it would have been a new 200 yard world record.
But I remember that fly he dusted at 200 yards with ..Im not sure what caliber they were using with that..September 8, 2007 at 1:31 am #24051
I would liek to shoot wonder woman… 😆September 12, 2007 at 5:04 am #24260mcmikeParticipantquote DragonFlySlayer:
When I read about minisniping ( http://www.minisniping.org/ ) I immediatelly though paintball “bullets”. Haven’t have change to try them out yet but I would imagine at 35+ range they would be perfect target. They are inexpensive and you get nice visual feedback from every hit 😀September 12, 2007 at 8:56 am #24272white-anacondaParticipantquote mcMike:
