Shot the Vintage military silhouette match today. Was walking over to reset the pigs I had hit and noticed this. The shooter next to me had hit the pig right on the butt and spun it 90 degrees. It ended up balanced on the front leg and did not fall over. No score!

I've seen it a few times in matches. A friend of mine spun one sideways in a lever gun match and shot it and knocked it off with his next shot.

That one is a heartbreaker for sure, perfectly balanced! Had a couple simular targets last couple years in smallbore but none on one foot.

That's impressive. What was the distance?

I've seen a chicken or two and a few turkey's spun by a round and stay up...but never a pig.

Must have been a feral pig, I heard they are a bit feisty...

It was the 100 meter pigs. We all got quite a laugh out of it.
We were shooting the pigs at 300M. Guy was using a Swedish Mauser. You can see the mark right at the edge of the butt.
