Thread: Head shots on FSTV

    Head shots on FSTV

    Has anyone watched this weeks FSTV they did a piece on head shooting and put the graphic bits on a separate video for o18 only. I actually think they did a good job. I actually don't do it unless I'm real close so reducing chance of error further. The o18 video is graphic mind. It looks like they were using bts. Just wondered what others thought.

    Locking it away with an 18 certificate was a good move, it's useful information but I wouldn't want to see too much of it.

    good idea 'locking away' to over 18's
    BUT, YouTube seems to think I'm underage even though my account has my correct dob. 03/01/1975. But I still get 'not available to underage users' !!!

    i have no probs with the way it was done, fact is he can shoot? practice practice, but the 18 cert was the way to go for some who have never killed anything before? saying that my 10yr old son and i watch it and his words were what a cracking shoot ? he also helps me dispatch and gutout bunnys when hit with the 17 hmr, this round do's the same on bunnys so he see's head shoot trauma a lot , he also fetches the odd fox that i'v hit with the bts 308 so most are jelly bags . its the same sites as i was seeing at his age i lived on a horse meet farm the knackers man came every week with his shotgun ? killing anything has to be as quick and humain this was done in my mind .

    Fine, so it's ok for you, you know exactly what the end result will be.
    But for the shooters who haven't it at least shows the reality of what the shot will do, that alone maybe enough
    to stop some people taking that shot, ever.
    It's all a lesson, to me at least I think such things are worth knowing in advance, and I think the way they did it was the best way to show it.

    I've just shown the slow-mo to someone at work that is so-so about deer stalking. First comment was "That animal knew nothing about that, much kinder than being in a slaughterhouse."
