    Nice shooting and nice vid Arturo. I shoot at a plumb- line for <br>accuracy, a wire is way too thin for me, I lost my glasses some time <br>ago. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt="Rolling Eyes" longdesc="14"><br><br><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

    <span class="postbody"><br>I will never put my feet in a plane if it is not for jumping out of it, with a parachute of course. I am like the guy from the A- Team( can't remember the name).</span>

    <span class="postbody"><br>Hi tokSick, what I've seen was a green blur over the can blur, but Saderath told me to do a "mental" picture on were is the exact point to shoot, and works fine with some practice ...<br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> the bad thing is that passengers don't wear parachutes ... but I guess I am a lucky man after all <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"></span>

    Guys just arrived !!! that little sh... got trembling like rock and roll ... I will stay in touch (poor BW here and INET limited for job only) ... thank you all for your nice words ...<br>@FIAOO a suggestion, use smaller (tiny) targets and remember the "mental picture" crosshairs in your mind you'll find that it works !! ...
