FANCY SNAP AND WINGSHOOTING

Wing shooting with a rifle of the kind rendered familiar by the professional trick and fancy shots is a very entertaining recreation. Moreover, such work is of considerable utility; the man who can burst a walnut tossed up at forty feet is very apt, within reasonable range, to double up a bounding deer.

This description of rifle shooting is much the most sensational of all rifle work, with practice feats being accomplished that border on the marvelous. It is, too, I believe the easiest branch of rifle firing in which to develop skill, since anyone who is expert in the use of a shotgun will make very rapid progress in the game of fancy snap shooting with a rifle. Many become proficient in this style who could never make a great reputation in the more legitimate lines of rifle firing. Nevertheless, many of our professional snapshots, like the Topperweins, practice long and faithfully, their rifle shooting ability, though guided in a different channel, not being second to that of our greatest military and match shots.

The so called "champion" rifle shots, who proclaim themselves such from having broken the greatest number of glass balls in a thousand or fifteen thousand, do not deserve much credit except for endurance. Striking a three-inch disc at fifteen feet is not a wonderful performance. Maurice Thompson demonstrated that he could do it with a bow and arrow, getting forty-four out of fifty his first public attempt. I believe the fifteen foot, three inch record is fifteen thousand straight, which alone should tell the story. However, the snapshot who is in earnest about acquiring actual and practical skill need not confine himself to three-inch blocks tossed straight up at fifteen feet.
