Hard shot off of water.  Especially water that has any flow.

Actually Joe, it isn't as "moving" as you think. Any reflective layer (solids, liquids, gases, ionosphere, etc.) has a refractive index (or reflection coefficient depending on the context). There is a whole lot of math involved, but you can calculate the amount of deflection (reflection as the case may be). Obviously, velocity and angle of incidence are major ingredients. But if you exceed the calculated parameters, even water becomes a very hard surface, as any belly-flopper knows.

Alan ,
 That is very interesting as I did the math for that shot I noticed that 12 feet from the target if I move the point of impact 1 inch  meant 3 inches in the 12 feet that's how precise  that shot had to be plus I was 32 yards from the target .  I will redo the shot and cut the card .
