    High speed cameras rent for about $500.00 Per day and if there is a problem with the weather or whatever they still cost 500 you do not get a do over, Since we film in HD they are in the tens of thousands to purchase, so for videos we do not make a dime on it is a little foolish to pay that kind of money.

    But if someone wants to spend the money on one and hand it over for a day or a week of shooting I am all over it. Send it and we will put it to work. In fact I have a lot of shots I do I would love to see in slow mo.

    If you happen to watch that Steven Seagal Lawman series on A&E, he uses a 22 pistol to shoot the heads off matches, as well as the heads off Q-tips. He was only a few yards away, but point is that shots like these are totally possible.

    It may take a lot of practice, but 22LR ammo ain't exactly expensive.

    Splitting a 22LR on an axe head is totally possible. I believe the shot in the video is real.
