The amazing part of this (to me) is—besides the excellent off-hand shooting—the FX Crown is not the only airgun capable of the requisite accuracy. This is (to me) one of the biggest attributes airguns possess. If you follow Rick and his antics (!), you'd know he uses a variety of airguns to achieve his results. These facts are prima facie!

As always,  Great shot Rick.   We used to play at 10 yards in my neighbors driveway, and shoot into his garage and try to light matches with his Sheridan.  Those were the days. 1970.  His dad was a contractor so we had lots of wood for backstop!

I apologize because this is off the subject. But...

I used to be fairly good at off hand shooting, but age and a love of good coffee have taken their toll. But I have also found, that practice still makes perfect. I even managed to make a "Rick" shot two days ago. Too bad no one was around to see it!

The aiming point was a pigeon, about 100 yards away. When I fired he flinched, but stayed put. So out came my laser rangefinder to double check (104 yards actually), and just as I pushed to range button, he fell off the wire!

That shot was my best off-hand in recent years, and I'll blame Rick for making me try!
