    That is a good sport of you, Grant. Doug is the creator of this category so aside from RecordSetter, he has the right to create and/or modify the rules as deemed valid and necessary. You can as well invent your own record categories and have Doug go and challenge it, I'm sure that'll be awesome. Both of you shoot very well

    Ok GrantI use a single shot 22 rifle with a receiver mounted peep sight my front sight is a globe sight there is no magnification in either sight. hope this helps youI beleive that with your semi auto and scope you could make records in a different catagory.

    OK Grant if Recordsetter puts your record in the proper catagorie i definately will beat it so lets just wait for the decision no hard feelings on this end just want it done fairly.

    ok, but if you have a semi auto and a scope why dont you just try to beat my record

    Hi Grant. In the spirit of fairness and equality, your attempt has been denied. Using a semi-auto rifle and a scope made the task easier than using what Doug McManaman had used. We will be glad to see if you try the same equipment as he used.

    even if i was using a single shot i still could've beat your time because it only took me about three seconds to hit each balloon, and reloading would have only added on about 30 seconds.

    sorry Grant I cant agree your semi auto is much quicker than a single shot and also you used a telescope sight which would make the balloons very easy to hit

    This record should not count as i used a single shot rifle and Grant used a semi automatic rifle a huge difference. please review

    Marshall, I think if you follow the lead that Doug sets here you are good to go. Looks like Doug re-loads after each shot. Doug, do you have any input on this?

    Rob Birdsong... for this record, would the rounds have to be loaded into the firearm individually after each shot, or would a magazine with five rounds in it be permitted...? also, is a semi-automatic firearm be permitted?

  • United States Rob Birdsong

    Rob Birdsong

    Jordan is spot on. Doug uses a .22 caliber rifle to set all of his shooting records. We edited that piece of criteria.

  • United States Jordan Stone

    The record criteria is not correct. Doug was using a bolt-action rifle, not a shotgun. A shotgun wouldn't really be the right firearm for this record.
