I know this is Meaningless Drivel, but why in the world would you put a 'scope on a gun that can't accurately hit anything 30 feet away?

Is the scope called a 'pi' so that you get a magnum pi?

For those who haven't followed the link, the title is "Impossible 200 Yard Shot"

Its unclear to me that this wasn't just luck. Real shooting is not one lucky shot, it putting a group in a tight cluster on the target.

Impossible, that I agree with.

I think he says in the video that he got 3 hits in a row. Bob Munden was one of the greatest exhibition shooters ever, so if anyone could do it, he could.
