    I was able to get two cuts on the same can today. I was using a standard Trumark shooter with black tubes. I was shooting 3/8 steel balls. I have to thank zwillie for giving me the idea for the thread title. :)

    The bottom of the can. I had to hit it twice to finally get the second cut.

    Not only did I get two cuts, I took pieces out of the can.

    Nice! I don't think those cans are going to bother you anymore...

    I lost track of how many shots it took to get the two cuts.

    Ahhh, I have yet to even attempt this 'rite of passage'. I shall attempt it in time. For now, I've been just knocking cans over on a regular basis. I do enjoy making them jump. But to cut a can is a great goal to 'aim' for. Nice work Jeremy.

    Thank you Arturo. I'm constantly looking to improve. I am still in need of a better quality shooter, until I am confident in my skills enough to build one.

    Withak, it is a great feeling seeing the top or/and the bottom fly off after that "perfect" shot. I've had some great shots with my rifles and hand guns, but getting that first cut beats them all.

    Try a bi-metallic can, they can take more abuse than an aluminum can can, can you say that 5 times fast?

    I'll have to use that as a target someday after I get a stronger ss.
