1 Minute Can Challenge.
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All cans used in scoring are no longer valid.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!!

    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.

Thatís ok because 1 throw can only produce one point. Multiple cans count as 1. Reloading might suck after the first point

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.

I would like to clarify for no apparent reason that sugar glider glandes are acceptable?

Only because they are touching and not spaced apart. Also not cans but exceptions can be made for that .

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.

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.
