    Great shot. That would be even cooler in slo-mo from a high speed camera.

    27 shots later he hit it.

    Time to go edit my video.

    I was too busy watching the pig walking around. Had to watch it twice to see the tick get hit

    Question : Do I have to take it off my ex's head first or can I just shoot it at will ?

    This makes me want a pet pig.

    Can you get pigs that stay that size? I am pignorant.

    I wonder if he walks him around with the harness on?

    That was an expensive way to kill a tick.

    Wouldn't it have been simpler, to step just on it?

    It'd be easier and MUCH cheaper to buy duck breast at the grocery, too, but we're gun guys, 'member?

    Some pot bellies stay small like that. A friend of mine had one that was house trained, palled around with her boxer and acted just like a dog. Only drawback was the yard being constantly torn up.

    Would have been more impressive had he shot the tick while it was still attached to the pig.

    I lost interest after he missed a few times.

    You won't find any seed ticks around my house to shoot at either. I try to take care of my animals.

    Was competing in a 22 rimfire match held at 50 yards when a fly landed on my target. I knew I could hit the fly and who has that opportunity ? Couldn't take the shot because it was one shot per target and I was going for the win.

    I could hear the tick breathing in the video.
