How To Become A Proficient Coin Shooter, No Matter Which Equipment You Use :nerd:

First of all, find a target with whatever metal detector you use. Swing the coil over it from at least 2 different directions to validate a decent target.



Carefully, and I mean real carefully, find out exactly where that coin is in the hole. Using an electronic pin-pointer saves time and prevents you from scratching that coin. Experienced coin shooters always take their time retrieving the target. Set the coin on the ground, and don't grab it with your bare fingers. Fresh silver from the ground can be permanently stained from the salt in your sweat. Just leave it.......



Next, get your firearm, aim, and squeeze the trigger. It doesn't matter how close your firearm is to the target, make sure your sights are aligned perfectly, then, ever so slowly pull the trigger. "POP!"



The more centered the bullet passes through the coin, the better coin shooter you are. I managed a bulls-eye on this one. It took years pf practice to get this good! :)

Mighty large caliber just to shoot a coin. Looks to be at least 45 acp. Initial thought was 500 S&W but I noticed that you weren't using a revolver.

You had me sucked into your story until I saw the gun. I am then thinking, "is this guy off his rocker?" "has John lost his marbles?" Shooting at his precious silver?
Then I scrolled a little more and saw the washer....."coin shooting!" :rofl:

Great post!



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.

I haven't lost my marbles yet, but I did lose some BBs with that BB gun.
