    It's snowy, 15 degrees Fahrenheit (-9.4 Celsius) and I want to finnaly target shoot after 20+ years of not shooting. So, I rigged up a place to shoot (the range is more like 5 meters not the 6 mentioned in the video) and tried to cut a can. I did eventually cut the can (below photo) but it's not on the video as I didn't want to try to upload an hour of me re-learning how to shoot. Anywho, here's Wild Bill with his natural Moorhammer shooting a coke can. Note that I find this Moorhammer to be extremely comfortable to shoot. I like this design (Thank you, Joerg!) as it is easy to control and predictable. Even my cats liked it!

    I noticed that the one for me was right in the center. (Of course!);)
    A nice start.

    I have problems when I hang the can from the pull tab, normally about 2nd or 3rd shot the pull tab comes right off dropping my target.

    Arturo you may not be today, but in a year? It is possible I think to get close at least.

    Oh, I'm a lifetime away from Arturo, but I'm having a load of fun- which is acceptable. I'm still amazed at the fact that Jack (also known as 'nose-beast') is so domesticated that he can sit like he did and watch me shoot. My cats are too tame for their own good.

    I'd say your off to a very good start! What fork position are you shooting?

    I missed!

    But I am laughing freely!

    Thank you my wild friend,
    watching that vid makes my day, as I will now
    get everything done to prepare for the Nikolaus,
    probably till past midnight!

    "YEAH O.K!" that was where bursted out laughing!
    Pure, honest joy that shines like the sun!

    Another highlight, right at the start is the cat´s paw,
    in the left upper corner of the picture (LOL)

    Thanks for the joy, I´m typing grinning!

    Kind regards,

    Be

    Hammer grip- it's really all you can do with the Moorhammer I made.
