Points of Interest
The dime had a small hole drilled in the outer edge. A paper clip with rubber bands and a string was attached to it. The other end of the string was attached to the target frame. The dime was clear taped to the center of a 25 yard pistol target. The dime was not visible when viewed through the 15X scope at 200 yards. Mr. Scott knew the dime was exactly in the center of the bull’s eye. Mr. Scott fired one shot at the center of the target thus blowing a hole through the dime. The shot was witnessed by two men.
