    Nice Onnod! Shooting a small target once is much more rewarding than having 10 hits on can! And once you get the hang of it you will look at a can and say to yourself "Now which letter on the can should i destroy first!"

    I can't shoot very accurate at big things, the bigger they are, the worse my accuracy <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3">

    <span class="postbody"><br>me too ... Saderath taught me a trick that is to "imagine" or "realize" where the target spot is ... I have improved my accuracy using this technique since I see rather bad (age and some luminosity adverse conditions), that way I forget I am currently seeing a blurred shape ...</span>
