One Big Hole
In particular, the officials accompanying him are often astonished by his accurate marksmanship. Pistol, rifle, machine gun, tank — whatever weapon he takes, he hits the target without fail.
The following happened one spring day when he was at a shooting gallery. Urged by the accompanying officials, he picked up an automatic rifle and stood at a shooting station. He gazed at the target for a while and moved far backwards. Then he fired three bullets in the blink of an eye.
An official ran towards the target to judge the score, others holding their breath. The official discovered only in the bull's-eye, wondering where the other two bullets had gone.
Rubbing his eyes, he scrutinized the hole and found that it was a big one. This meant that the other two bullets passed through the hole.
The judge shouted, "Three bullets hit the bull's-eye. There is one big hole. "
A burst of applause followed.
The official protested, "No, sir. It is a big hole."
Seeing the man crestfallen,
Now it was the turn of the officials, each of whom picked an automatic rifle and stood at the shooting station. The firing began, but the scores were not high enough.
He picked a rifle and said to them, "Now I will shoot again. Watch my shooting position."
Then he deftly took up his position and there was a pause for some moments.
Shot after shot rang out and the judge shouted perfect score.
Not satisfied with this,
The shooter fired five bullets in two seconds. The officials could not believe their eyes, feeling as if in a dream.
He continued, "Accurate marksmanship is a tradition of my family, I think."
