Donnie Vincent and Richard Ryan team up to celebrate the opening of “The Revenant” movie with some incredible flintlock & arrow trick shots.
“The Revenant” is now in theaters, and to help celebrate the release of this wilderness survival film, outdoorsman Donnie Vincent and gun expert Richard Ryan teamed up to have a look at some weapons like those featured in the film.
Eventually they got around to some flintlock & arrow trick shots with these weapons and it’s something you have to see to believe.
Even after seeing this, some of you may still not quite believe some of those shots. Those were all insanely accurate shots that many competent shooters would not be able to hit with high-tech sights attached to modern weapons, but these were accomplished with traditional weapons.
Some would say that the shots with the bow were more impressive than the flintlock because Vincent was using a field tip, but you have to remember that the ball is leaving the flintlock at four to six times the speed and is round, unlike modern rounds.
No matter which you think is more impressive, they are all excellent shots and well worth watching. We don’t think we can pick a favorite from these, can you?
