    This is a fun little video. The commentary during shooting makes it feel like I'm watching a golf game. :)

    At least they acknowledged the fact that their technique was poor. Add a sling and good position and you can really get off some fast aimed fire.

    Check out some of the Norwegian shooting championship videos and you'll see what a rifleman is capable of. Here's one of several shooters with Krag bolt actions rattling off 16 accurate rounds in 25 seconds. Cool as a jewel...

    That is mindblowing. This might be a dumb question but what finger are they pulling the trigger with. It allmost looked like the middle finger.

    That's a neat technique. He doesn't need his trigger hand for stabilization so he's keeping the bolt in his fingers and pulling with his middle.

    Yes, he is using his middle finger to pull the trigger. Competitive shooters have been doing that for years to speed up their rapid fire strings. It takes a bit of practice to get it right, but it does work.
