How do you celebrate Easter?

22 egg

22Plinkster has done some interesting trick shots with .22LR. In this recent video, he shoots an egg from 100yds off hand, open sights with a 22LR tracer. One shot.

I find this video amusing because just last week, two of my online friends set a challenge for all three of us. Offhand shoot an egg from 100 yds. No limit on the gun used. Then this video pops up and blows us out of the water haha.

I used plastic Easter eggs filled with flour. So I could see if I hit them. I was unable to hit them off hand and used a table. So I failed the challenge but it was fun trying. I need to up my skills. Do you set challenges for yourself?

    eggs? easter is for shooting Peeps.

    • Limonata

      I agree! That is the only reason we purchase peeps!

      • iksnilol

        This is a stupid question; but what are “peeps” exactly?

        • Limonata

          Search Google for “peeps’ — but, essentially a very dense marshmallow candy treat that comes in various Easter colors and are very sweet and sticky. To give you an idea of how dense they are, two or three “peeps” can stop a 22lr.

          please don’t start a fresh vs stale debate here… :-)

        And microwaving them, of course!

    For my children I set up cans of soda at 20, 30 and 50 yards and have them pick them off with their 22s. Iron sights, too. They always enjoy “blowing up” the carbonated corn syrup.

    The eggs with flour is a great idea. I’ll be sure to save this year’s plastic eggs.

    A day as any, except I get to chastise those infidels who insist on defacing food.

    WUALALALALALA!

    Being a muslim has its perks. :)

    I usually just eat lamb and drink with my family. :) I am taking a CPL class the day before though, that should be fun.

    Thundercats!
    Great trick shot!
    I didn’t even know there were tracing 22LR out there, and they even seem to be accurate rounds!

    Not the same but recent as well and quite amusing:

    • gunslinger

      now, if he could throw up the round, and another person shoot it to twist into place…yeah…

      • Giolli Joker

        If that other person is 22Plinkster maybe… :-)

    Here is idea for you: go to church, have a family dinner and enjoy sun! Give shooting a break; let it be peace time thru holidays. Happy Easter to all!

    During Easter I take a break from shooting and spend my time with kids like nephews and nieces and let them hunt eggs. Just the usual way to celebrate Easter Sunday.
