This interesting image is the result of a bet between two shooters.
The bet was......
"Shoot 10 rounds with his 50-90 from the prone position. Hit 5 targets or more @ 300 yds. When complete, do 10 push ups and take a punch to the right shoulder." Morgan Silver (left) did it and Rusty P. Bucket (right) had to wear the 'Girly Man' sign that Saquaro Jack made for him at the July 2007 shoot. As you can see, Morgan Silver was happier with the result than Rusty P. Bucket.
