Splitting cards with open sights at 50 yards (VIDEO)


Sure anyone can split a playing card at close range, but 22Plinkster gives it a go with a Henry .22LR lever gun and open sights from a half football field away.

According to the official ISO specs on poker cards (yes, there is such a thing), your standard card is 2.5 × 3.5 inches (64 × 89 mm), which is referred to as B8 size. Of course, when turned on its side, its only about 0.0115 inches thick, which means you have to come correct with your marksmanship when aiming to whack one with a speeding bullet.

Especially at 50 yards.
