Just watched it again...... You marksmen out there....just how plausible is the rope shooting, especially at the end. how accurate could you be at that distance?


Remember its my neck on the end of the rope.....

It's not only the distance that's making it an impossible shot in that scene. He's sitting on a horse with his arm in an awkward position as support, and not even using a scope. Plus, Tuco is standing on a cross that's on the verge of breaking so he's swinging all over the place. I'd probably need to lay down with a bipod and a minimum 9x scope just to see the rope... Even if I'd hit it with my 7.62mm ammo I probably wouldn't break it with one shot. But then again I'm not Blondie Grin

I'd like to say something based on my many years as a marksman and a sniper:

That shot is piece of cake. A walk in the park. Candy from children.

Cool Blueberry, a sniper eh?  I think He's using a Sharps Buffalo Rifle believe, which was very accurate at long distances, and again he's Blondie.

i think that nobody can manage this incredible shot... but this guy is blondie, do not forget that point... Blondie is not really a man: he's faster,  smarter, stronger, and more whateveryouwant than anybody. Remember the way he shoots tuco just before the later arrives at the cemetary, with the canon: he didn't even change the place of the canon...

Yep, I agree. I would really like to see Blueberry do that shot from the horseback. Btw, what kind of sniper are you, Blueberry?

It makes a thing like that:

No problem, John Baldwin, we get the message (citrouille = pumpkin). Not a bad shot, I must admit!
