    Cool shot. For the wallpaper-sized version try this:

    Neat idea, but obviously fake.

    Jacki, are you by chance talking about this video (see link above)?

    If so, it's phony as well...

    Probably is Photoshopped but the wall in the background does seem to match up a bit with the targeted area. I would kinda like it to be authentic.

    Being a photographer for years it's been interesting watching the digital world develop and subsequent growing distrust of any/all images being made and thrown out there now. That's a topic for another day methinks.

    MEANWHILE, just got my XF choke in the mail and going to park on #5 tomorrow for a box or two in 20mph winds and try to put that post to rest. HIttin' the sack.

    smoke 'em

    brownk80, what Mike said above.

    If you look close at the very first hit on the video you can see it's a fat whistle pig sittin' on a rock.

    .50 cal's pack incredible power, but not such that it would render a man hit by one unrecognizable. And throw him several yards in the air, 800 gr. bullet or not...

    I mentioned it here once before and several told me I didn't know what I was talking about and that it was indeed real. I guess they just wanted to believe it was. cls
