Charging boar

A hunter shoots a charging boar with a pistol … pretty crazy.

They are hunting in Corsica.

[ Many thanks to Paulo for emailing me the video. ]

    One thing that struck me was the handgunner shooting one-handed under stress.
    I've watched a lot of police shooting videos thanks to a copper friend who's a trainer and I see that a lot. Under stress, in a moving situation, there appears to be a strong tendency to angle back into a narrow silhouette and fire strong hand only. Even among highly-trained isosceles shooters.
    Must be a natural instinct.
    Those videos make me practice strong-hand a lot more than anyone else I know.

    Been interesting if the boar got one of those guys. Sometimes the hunters become the hunted.

    I’m all for hunting but do it with a bow and arrow girly man!
