    1. Fred Missildine once claimed to have run 25x25 skeet targets while blindfolded. He said he could hear the trap release, and knew where the target would be.

    2. Rudy Etchen claimed to have run 25x25 skeet targets shooting one-handed while standing on top of a fence post on one foot.

    3. And we've all seen the great exhibition shooter Tom Knapp hand throw 10 targets and break them all.

    but...

    I recently watched a pheasant hunting video with Tom Knapp. A bird flushed close in front of him, maybe 15 yards, and flew straight away. Tom emptied his auto and never cut a feather.

    Even the greatest have a bad day sometimes.

    Years ago I had the luxury of watching John Satterwhite shoot Skeet blindfolded. Impressive!!!

    So tell me. How do you get a gun to fit your ear?

    I watched a fellow break 200 registered doubles targets (same day) this Saturday with one eye closed.

    John Satterwhite is my all-time favorite exhibition shooter. His sense of humor is drier than a keg of Blue Dot and his is much less pretentious than some of the newer shooters.

    I have often wondered how well Tom Knapp would do from the 27yd line.I'd say his 100 straights would be far and few between if any. Any other thoughts.Also if you really think Fred broke 25 blindfolded I would like to sell you a building...Trump Towers :>

    But jnoemanh: but you missed the point of Tom Knapp's video.........Tom was good enough to insure that that pheasant never reproduced.
