Title: 1 Minute Can Challenge.
Post by Mersa on Apr 15th, 2021 at 8:13am
Iím proposing a new challenge.

How many soda/beer cans can you hit in 1 minute?.

Basically hereís the rules Iím going with.

1 minute. This cannot be cut from an existing round.
It must be the start of the attempt. For example you say go, or show a timer. Or walk from your camera. Have a second person with a stopwatch.

All of the cans should be same size/type or close enough.
Soup cans , beer cans , Soda cans ect.

The target cans should all be level (on a wall or on the ground.)
The target cans should be no closer than 1 can width apart and evenly spaced. There is no limit on distance apart.
The target cans should be placed in a line.
The target cans should be placed square to the shooter with the target cans inline with the shooters position.
There is no limit on cans used.
There is no restriction on ammo other than it should be not visibly larger than a tennis ball.
Shots should be taken no closer than 10m. There is no reward for distance but any distance further than 10m can be used.

You score 1 point for hitting one can
You score 1 point for hit multiple cans.
You score 1 point for hitting one can and it interfering with another can.
All cans used in scoring are no longer valid.
Basically you can only score 1 can per throw.

Throws thrown before the time ends but impacts hit after time ends are not scored.

So what you think.

Can you get 1
Can you get 2
Can you get 5
Can you get 20

Who CAN do it!!

Lol! I want in on this! Great idea!!!

What kind of predictions do we have? Does anyone think they can do 5 indvidual hits in a minute?

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by TOMBELAINE on Apr 15th, 2021 at 1:50pm
Very honestly, I will have a hard time drinking 5 cans of beer in 1 minute.

Post by Rat Man on Apr 15th, 2021 at 3:14pm
    I like the idea but you should refine the rules to omit shotgun type ammo.  I could use my double barrel sling loaded with ball bearings under the current rules. 

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Mersa on Apr 15th, 2021 at 9:48pm
Thatís ok because 1 throw can only produce one point. Multiple cans count as 1. Reloading might suck after the first point

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by joe_meadmaker on Apr 15th, 2021 at 10:19pm
Ah, glad that clarification came up.† I was thinking multiple points could be had on a single throw.† Like if you hit a can, that would be one.† And if it was knocked into another can, that would be a second point for the same throw.† It definitely makes more sense to limit it to a max of one point per throw.

I like it.† Sounds like a good training tool for reloading speed.† I've got just the thing to make a nice setup for this.† I'll just have to get one more thing.† This will also be a good incentive to finally get some reusable ammo put together.† I got my bag of balloons to make a bunch of rusty balls.† Just haven't done it yet.† I think I would go through ice a little too fast in practicing for this.

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Morphy on Apr 20th, 2021 at 11:38am
Well shoot NOOC looks like you get "the" trophy. If no one else takes part. Im still working on getting my range set up but once I do ill be taking part in this regardless of whether the challenge is still going on or not.

I have to say thats just about the best grouping Ive ever seen from anyone. Or at least its right up there.  Really good stuff man. You are now a Jedi Master.

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Morphy on Apr 20th, 2021 at 9:58pm
One of the better groupings out there and nothing. Lol. Tough crowd. I want to have your babies but apparently im the only one. Still, good start to the challenge.

1 is the number to beat.

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by joe_meadmaker on Apr 20th, 2021 at 10:09pm
Awesome!† Although I think you need to do it again.† I think if you would have put the can directly in line with the bullseye (or diana, whatever) of the target, you would have had more hits.
Agree with Morphy 100%.† That was a great grouping!  :thumb:

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by TOMBELAINE on Apr 21st, 2021 at 7:28am
I couldn't drink 5 beers in one minute so, I took small bottles of water (1/2 liter).
At 10 meters, five throws and one hit.
The stone fell 1 or 2 cm next to it but the bottle fell.

Can I use beer kegs instead of cans?  I'm half blind.

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by TOMBELAINE on Apr 22nd, 2021 at 9:47am
It's possible with beer kegs but your accuracy will be worse.

Participate without hesitation. Probably, we will all make 0 or 1 point. Whoever makes at least 2 points will be a real idol on this forum.

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by NooneOfConsequence on Apr 22nd, 2021 at 2:23pm
I tried again today and was literally inches away from a score of 2...  the hits were 21 seconds apart not counting the pause to set the can back up after the first one... and that was followed by a bunch of misses :)

It ďseemsĒ like it should be easier than it is. Im not sure why, but to me it does anyways. But itís like can size objects have this mind of their own. They repel objects that are trying to hit them. Amazing stuff Mersa. Simply awesome bro.

And agreed.† A great challenge!† I can imagine this one sticking around for a while, to see how high we can get that count.

Net is ordered and ideally should have a sling range in the old backyard up and ready to be abused a month after it arrives depending on how busy, broke and/or lazy I am.

I would very much like to get on the scoreboard. NOOC sent me a sling I havent been able to use as much as I would like due to my current ammo. Once that range is up though....its Aysemtrical Sling Warfare and those cans...well those cans are going DOWN.

(More likely I will fail miserably but damnit im going to die trying!!!) So please, everyone refrain from getting 4 so I have a small chance or accomplishing something this decade.

Well if you used 400 - 500g stones, I reckon it would be doable.
Unfortunately I only currently actually own half an oil drum.
We've just taken another chunk out to make a new charcoal 'basket' for my BBQ.

They last about 5 years. Which isn't bad.

Im sorry I know we are supposed to be looking at the impacts and they were awesome but the accuracy you got with such stupidly heavy ammo is what really impressed me. Is that longer sling making for more powerful shots Joe?

Post by joe_meadmaker on Jul 11th, 2021 at 12:31am
Thanks guys!† As with many a slinging video, all the not-so-great stuff was cut out.† The long sling (the sling I used is my 52" that I've done a lot of two-handed throwing with) definitely needs adjustment when you first start using it.† I probably had at least half a dozen throws way off to the left before I started to get used to it.† Thinking back on it, a 52 inch sling for a target at 10 meters sounds like a pretty crazy concept in general.

There were many more attempts with the timer that I didn't include.† I found I could get three chances at the barrel in a minute without wearing myself out too much.† And I did get to a point when I was getting one hit pretty regularly.† It was just getting the second one that was tough.† Especially when it got to throw number three because I started getting out of breath.



Morphy wrote on Jul 10th, 2021 at 7:53pm:

Sort of.† What I've found with it in my big stone slinging is that it feels a little more controlled because the stone can be moving at the same speed as a shorter sling without having to rotate the sling as fast.† So therein lies the trade off.† The sling doesn't need to be rotated as fast to get the stone moving quickly, but then the stone is further away from your eye-line to the target, so aiming is more difficult.† It definitely has a "shoot from the hip" feel to it.

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Kick on Jul 11th, 2021 at 2:26am
Now those are some heavy impacts! I guess I'm going to have to do it now... I've just moved so I still haven't decided on my new slinging spot. but I'm now thinking if we're starting to diverge from normal cans and normal ammo... I might have to go out with the staff sling...

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Mersa on Jul 11th, 2021 at 3:38am
Wow Iím super impressed joe!!!
That was some awesome accuracy!
Brings me back to that original painting where there was a guy with two hands on the sling. Looks very similar to that in the startup rotation. And the power, Iím imagining just having a suit of plate mail on and taking one of those to the chest , ouch!

Great slinging and video joe!!

I think it could definitely do it.† The projectile just needs to be hefty enough.† One other thing I was running into is the hit really needs to be in the top 1/3 of the barrel.
It looks like a big target, until you get some hits on the bottom and it doesn't knock it over.† >:(


@Mersa - I actually did try two-handed slinging with this.† I gave up pretty quickly though because it was too hard to be accurate at such a close range.† I'm sure it would have worked if I stuck with it, but I was already getting close with a one handed throw.† Using the second hand to get the sling in motion was definitely a help though.

I might just have 10 metres across the lawn and into the flower bed.

Hmm - google earth

So according to gogle earth the widest bit of garden i could sling across - assuming I get a net. Would be 9 metres. It's 8.6 metres from where I'm standing just short of next doors fence to the wheelie bin.

I'm gonna go out on alimb and say only joe qualifies for the 10 metre distance and as such is the current leader :thumb:

We won't go into who was standing in the middle of the line of cans (I know right, I read the rules ;-)

I admit it definitely can look different depending on the way itís filmed .

Iím throwing at just over 10m

There is a white mark on the fence rail where I had the 10m distance marked

Itís definitely a hard challenge. I need to get back into it and try knock over 4.

Thanks CA.† I appreciate the digital pat on the back.† Although I don't think anyone here would intentionally misrepresent their distance.† All the different layouts do make it hard to judge just from the video.

I just got back in from another attempt at this.† The record is still at 3.† I got another 3, and a few 2s.† Overall it felt like a bad round though.† The 3 was pretty much accidental, and the last hit might have been a second or two late.† But through the whole thing I was all over the place.† Had way too many throws to the left.

I like this challenge because it seems like it should be far easier than it actually is. 3 is great. Really. But damn it feels like that should be more an average than a high score. Or is that just me?  ;D ive come up short so far. I need to do better.

Got out for this again.† I actually fell off a little bit.† Didn't get better than a 2.† Although I got that score a few times.

I don't recall it happening in my previous sessions, but something happened that was very frustrating.† Twice I got a really nice hit on the first throw.† And then nothing after that for the full minute.

I like this challenge as a way to keep slinging.† I was out twice today.† This morning I was doing target slinging for the accuracy calculation in the other thread.† Nothing new there though.† I didn't review the video yet, but I know I was only 50% at best (probably a little under).† And this evening was the 1 minute can challenge.† No great feats of slinging, but a good day nonetheless.

Awesome Joe. I need to revisit this one too. I was having a blast slinging one of Morphy's foam-rubber baseballs at a wall today. It would be fun to go back to small targets. (I was for the first time ever 100% accurate today, lol)

Post by Albion Slinger on Jul 23rd, 2021 at 2:02am
That's great Joe! How do you find the plastic balearic? I've personally become a fan of them.†

I gave the challenge a stab the other day with plastic tubs (about the size of a can) and 2 was the best I got with stones. The tubs were spaced out quite a bit, which is great if you suffer from low blood pressure, but not much else. The notion of hitting targets when you "miss" has become all the more tempting...

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Morphy on Jul 23rd, 2021 at 4:36am
Assuming a shot every 4 seconds on cans that would give 15 shots in a minute.

At 10 meters with 4 hits out of 15 that gives an ADI score of 28.1. That might explain why this is so difficult.† ;)

I tend to think the cans should be spread out a good distance. The initial hit on cans that are grouped closely gives an advantage making at least the first hit probably a lower ADI than if one was just aiming at one can sized target the whole time.

Either way its ridiculously hard. Might be something to consider though in future challenges.

I can't really say yet.† A quick response without any thought is yes, I do like it.† But my experience is still incredibly small.† The plastic balearic I have I bought from Luis a while back because I thought the black and pink was pretty.† I tried it a couple times, but as with slings of this type, they just don't work great with ice balls (only speaking of my own experience).† But with this 1 minute challenge I've switched over to rusty balls.† Which means all these shorter stiffer slings I have are now working great with the ammunition.

You mentioned that you like them.† Quick question on that.† The one I have is pretty stiff.† In your experience, should this eventually break in and lose some of that stiffness, or will it retain it for the most part because it's plastic?

I have to disagree with you Morphy.† Here's why.† I think the unpredictable and chaotic aspects of this challenge are what make it so much fun.† If we want to see how many times a specific target can be hit in a minute, we can do that.† Just set up a target that won't be knocked over, and hit it over and over.† No need for a can lineup.

But with the cans set up in a line, it's no longer just about hitting a particular target.† You might hit another one accidentally.† You might bump a can into another one.† I've had projectiles bounce off the back stop and come back to take out a can.† I remember your video hitting the bench and knocking everything over (I've done this too† ;D).† I don't know if it's what Mersa intended, but I think the "carnival game" feel of this challenge is a big part of it.† Although I do agree with you that a slinging score can't really be derived with the added variables.

Don't get me wrong.† When I release that sling, there's always a particular can in mind.† It's just not always the one that gets hit.† ;)

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Morphy on Jul 23rd, 2021 at 2:05pm
I should probably clarify Im not advocating changing it. This has been one of my favorite challenges along with the max accuracy thread.

Also, while theoretically having them grouped might mean the initial hit is easier from what Ive seen its so damn hard anyways it almost doesnt matter.

All the posts on this thread getting multiple hits on cans, to me at least, are impressive.

But what it makes me wonder is are the old historical stories that exaggerated? I mean we are struggling to hit 4 cans at short distances. I think its Mersa thats leading the way right? Hes put out some damn good stuff over the last 6-8 months.

But even so how do we reconcile accounts of hitting peoples head, no a chosen part of the head, at long distances?

More and more Im questioning virtually all those accounts. Either that or we are missing something really big and frankly I just cant believe the answer is "more practice".

Title: Re: 1 minute, how many cans.
Post by Mersa on Jul 23rd, 2021 at 9:38pm
The thing with this challenge is that the rules make the game.
Because you can only score max 1 point per throw.
Ammo is restricted, so you canít throw beachballs , tennis ball diameter or smaller. Distance has a minimum but no maximum and cans should be level.

Everyone can try to ďcheatĒ better numbers but honestly when you go out and try you realise itís alot harder than you think.

Time pressure makes it hard , because itís not a continuous clip where you get into a groove.

You start with all cans up so at best you get a few free misses if you wanted to dirty edit it but after that itís pure skill. Sure you could put infinite cans level in a line and just wing it
but still that means your super consistent on one plane.

Itís a hard challenge and I actually agree with joe that a single static can fixed that didnít move might actually be easier, and would also allow for much dirtier editing in regards to the 1 minute clip.

So far I think everyone has done great in that regard, very honest clips.

Iíve been saving cans to retry this but Iím out of practice and have been cheating on my sling with my bow lately.

please dont think that i can consistently get those results.
21 was the best result i ever got and it was a lot of luck.
i wouldnt say i can get any record if i only rely on luck.
on that day, i have shot for 4 hours and because i didnt use a good technique, i have pain in my shoulder and wont be able to sling like that for the next few days.
even if the pain is gone, i dont want to try this again, because i want to work on a perfect technique

Ok guys I got it
5 is really hard , I average around 10-12 shots a minute without just throwing for speed reloading.
So 5 Cans is almost a 50% hit ratio.
Took a total of 4 practice sessions all around a hour and a half long.
Got to 4 cans on first session but only got the one 5/5 cans . I stopped after this , I gotta start getting back into rocks and practice for my pumpkin challenge.

Also this was CAs  tennis ball sling , and tennis balls.

Gonna leave this challenge alone for a little bit now and try work on a few other slinging ideas I got.

Yes he did .
He might be slightly a little too compact with the spread and maybe a slight advantage using bottles not cans but seeing as I was the current record holder I think I can officially say this counts as 6 Cans .

Whatís everyone think?
I think it qualifies. But itís on the limits, I donít wanna see 2liter bottles or anything as such .
Tennis balls are  ammo size limits and can size is preferred.

Doesnt bother me. I can say for contributions  I would am using just cans or can sized targets but Im also not going to lose any sleep if someone posts their own thing.

Nice shooting guys.† :) That is definitely not as easy as it looks.

Come to think of it that doesnt look very easy at all... you all just make it look easy.

I have to say that I am absolutely loving this little rivalry.  You and Channing just keep pushing the limits, and itís not clear when itís going to slow down. Absolutely phenomenal job to both of you.

Awesome!† You're definitely keeping everything in a nice tight zone. :thumb:

I think 3 was my highest too.† No more attempts for me though until winter goes away.

Iíve been trying to tighten up my groups both horizontally and vertically.  It would be better for this comp to focus only on vertical precision, but if I can get it tight enough, eventually it will start landing more hits, and then I hope to start knocking them down in a controlled orderÖ itís pretty ambitious, but thatís my goal.

This is my goal as well. Not to minimize Mersa or Channing's accomplishment, I still haven't done better than 4 in the current format, but I won't be satisified until I can do them sequentially. (and 4 might have been a fluke, so really, 3 is my best and not even on camera, so does it count? I would say no )

Iíd like to do 3/3 cans in order with only 3 shots but no time pressure
