I made my first can cut today. Not long ago I broke my first target.

I am really digging this new level of accuracy that consistent practice has allowed me to have.

33', same flips, at least 100 shots daily, same bands, same pouch, same ammo, etc...

I use .55mm Usopp 5/8" (16mm) straight cuts and Warrior microfiber Knight pouch with 5/16" (8mm) on my custom LBS (has a foregrip).

The can was an 8oz Cherry Pepsi...disgusting beverage. Never listen to teenagers, they have horrible taste. hahaha...

I also won our neighborhood contest by guessing closest the number of candy corn kernels in a jar. Very similar to 3/8" (9.5mm) in a can. hahaha...

Happy Halloween, flipsters.

Thanks, Ere'body!

Day 2 and another can down...in about 25 minutes. I, with purpose, was able to crease the can...then cut each edge before aiming at the middle.

When I was hitting I was on fire...but mostly missed the can altogether. Weird and fun times.

A video of notes- NO SHOOTING in the video. I will try to video my 3rd cut...the last shots. Nobody has time to watch the whole process. hahaha...

Hahaha...Y'all are cracking me up!

I have thick can next..evaporated milk (thoroughly bleached and cleaned to avoid the smell)...as thick as a bean can but with a soda can opening.

I've been making pies. A lot of people call it Hunting season or football season, but I call pie season.

MP You are shooting like a pro. Those vicious man eating cans don't stand a chance!
I like your setup. "down the hall, around the dresser, over the top and into the can"! You know, you have to call your shots to make it legal. :)
JSAaz, I believe you may have been in a few pool halls. We used to have lean down under the cigarette smoke and I only played for money one time...mostly just the next game and to keep the table. 1 quarter a game back then in a the back of a gas station with 4 very short tables.

Played an old grade school teacher turned community college professor for a Bowling grade...I could not and cannot bowl. He ran to the 8 ball and ran the table with 3 rail bank to cut the 8 in the bottom corner pocket after he corner hooked me on the same end of the table.

We were playing to establish that I knew the principles of bowling and a B. I got an A because he had not saw the shot and thought I was blowing smoke. hahaha...we still talk online.
Mr. Russell also confiscated many of my slingshots in 5th and 8th grade.
