Some of those trick shooters are showman. John Satterwiate shoots cabages and has stuff that explodes when his gun goes off. 22 shooting of aspirons could be .22 spreads which are #12 shot or sumpin.
My wife is a decent shot, probably average with men and above average among women. But to her "trick shooting" is putting rounds into guys coming out of a whorehouse.

Of course it was not her idea to do this and when it was explained as an option by the shoot master,
I poo-pood it.
