Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 240 - Shooting (Part 2)
“Kirilenko, Feng, are the both of you ready? You are going to shoot pistols first?” Brother Ke walked over and asked.
“Brother Ke, Kirilenko is betting with me, and he said that he will win even if I have two extra bullets.” Feng Yu said quickly before Kirilenko changed his mind.
“the both of you are going to compete? Let me join in. Leo, join us too.”
Brother Ke was excited when he heard that Feng Yu and Kirilenko were going to have a competition. Since Kirilenko dares to claim that he would win with two bullets short of Feng Yu, then that means Feng Yu’s shooting skills must be lousy. He knew Kirilenko’s marksmanship was better and he also wanted to join in the fun.
When Brother Ke saw the guns Feng Yu, Leo and Kirilenko chose, he also picks the same guns. Even if he can’t win Leo, he would at least win the other two. He was a regular at this range, and he was confident that he would win with any guns!
“Let me start first.” Kirilenko wore the ear mufflers and loaded his gun. He aimed at the target and fired.
Bang, bang, bang……
After 6 shots, Kirilenko put down his gun and gesture to Brother Ke.
Brother Ke also loaded 6 rounds. Feng Yu was third, and he shot 8 rounds. Instructor Leo was the last, and he also fired 6 rounds.
After everybody had finished shooting, a voice sounded from a speaker on the wall: “Number 1, 6 on target, 50 points. Number 2, 6 on target, 51 points. Number 3, 6 on target, 26 points. Number 4, 6 on target, 59 points.”
Wait. Why was it 6 on target? Damn, two rounds went off the mark!
Feng Yu felt embarrassed. Firing a handgun seems easy, and 20 meters was not that far. Why he can’t hit the target? The rounds that hit the targets got an average of only 4 points. This result sucks.
Feng Yu felt that it was because he was not ready just now and he did not know pistol’s recoil was that strong. It was a relief that he did not hit the roof with that recoil.
Kirilenko provocative looked at Feng Yu: “Feng, you want to carry on with the competition? Don’t forget I am also a soldier!”
“Sure, why not? There’s another pistol. I am only not used to this type of guns!” Feng Yu stubbornly said.
Feng Yu almost vomit blood when he saw the rest loaded only 5 rounds into the other pistol!
Damn, you guys really look down on me. Although I had not fired a handgun before, I had experienced it just now. All of you are digging your own grave!
Well, this time Feng Yu’s shots did not go off target, but he still lost.
His 8 rounds only got 31 points. Kirilenko and Brother Ke got 46 points, and instructor Leo got 50 points!
“These handguns are not fun at all. Let’s go outside and switch to rifles. I want to try AK47!” Feng Yu was angry. He was the one who challenged others, but he lost. He does not want to fire a pistol anymore.
Instructor Leo walked over, collected all the remaining unfired rounds and passed it to Feng Yu: “This is the first time you fired handguns, and you don’t know the techniques. Shooting is not difficult if you maintain your posture and shoot slowly. Look at the way I hold the gun and my posture. Your left hand is to support and lean your body slightly forward. Keep your arm straight and don’t fire continuously. You try shooting now.”
Feng Yu followed Instructor Leo’s instructions and fired again. He finished a clip, and this time, he was more accurate. His average score per round was 5 points.
Feng Yu loaded another pistol and fired again. This time, he got the technique. He finished all the rounds and used a pair of binoculars to look at the target. He had accidentally hit the bullseye, which was 10 points!
Feng Yu removed the empty clip and said: “Come, we shall compete again on single shots. I had hit the bullseye and got 10 points. It’s your turn!”
Brother Ke: “……”
Instructor Leo: “……”
No one replied to Feng Yu. Thus, Feng Yu carry on firing all the remaining rounds and shook his hands. The recoil had hurt his hands. He still wanted to play with AK47 later.
Ta, ta, ta, ta……
Feng Yu pulled the trigger and did not release it. All the bullets were fired in an instant.
Once again Feng Yu was speechless when he heard the announcer announced his results.
Damn, what’s wrong? 30 rounds and only 3 rounds hit the target? Did you count properly?
Feng Yu used the pair of binoculars to look at the target himself. Only 3 rounds hit the mark, and his best score was only 2 points!
What a lousy gun. They must have given me a gun that is not accurate. This gun must have not been zeroed!
“Brother Ki, no, Instructor Leo, I will exchange gun with you. This gun is not accurate!” Feng Yu snatched the AK47 from Instructor Leo and gave him his.
Instructor Leo was dumbfounded. Feng Yu had pointed the rifle almost to the sky when he was shooting just now, and he is complaining the gun was not accurate? It was a miracle that he got two rounds on the target.
Ta, ta, ta, ta……
Feng Yu finished another clip, and most of the rounds were off target, and only 5 shots hit.
All of them look at Feng Yu and wonder what other excuses will he use now.
“The wind is too strong.”
All of them looked at a flag not far away. The flag was not flapping and lying against the flagpole. There was no wind at all!
“The wind was very strong just now. Didn’t you feel it? My hat was also blown away. It only stopped now.”
Instructor Leo could not take it anymore and said: “Feng, the recoil for AK47 is very strong and the accuracy is not very good. You can choose the 3 rounds mode and point the barrel slightly downwards. This way, you will be more accurate.”
“Really? Why didn’t you tell me earlier? Brother Ki, come to give me your gun. Instructor Leo’s gun is also not accurate!”
Ta, ta, ta…… Ta, ta, ta…… Ta, ta, ta……
This time Feng Yu only had 3 rounds that were off target, and he was satisfied with his results.
Look at my improvements. From only 3 rounds on target to just 3 shots off the mark. I am a genius!
If Instructor Leo knew what Feng Yu was thinking, he would be speechless. At the range, if any of his soldiers got 3 rounds off target while using 3 rounds mode, he would punish that soldier to do at least 100 frog jumps with the rifle above his head! If this type of soldiers goes to war, he would only be wasting bullets!
Kirilenko and the rest also shoot after Feng Yu. When Feng Yu saw Kirilenko and Brother Ke’s results, he was still quite confident. But when he saw Instructor Leo’s result, he was demoralized.
You told me that AK47 is not accurate and your lowest score is 7 points, and you got a few rounds that hit the bullseye!
“This is not fun. Let’s switch to Mosin Rifle.” Feng Yu does not believe that he would shoot off target with a scope.
Bang, bang, bang……
Feng Yu finished shooting, and before the announcer announces his results, he used the binoculars to look at his target.
Damn. What’s going on? I had clearly seen my shots hitting the target just now and why is my target so clean now? There is not even a bullet hole. This is impossible!
Feng Yu complained that it must be someone had switched his target. If now, why was his target so clean and the distance was only 50 meters?
Instructor Leo took the pair of binoculars from Feng Yu and looked at the target. He then moved slightly and told Feng Yu a piece of bad news. Feng Yu had hit the wrong target!
