Just when you think he’s doesn’t have any more tricks up his sleeve, 22plinkster puts up a video of him trying one of the hardest trick shots yet: shooting a droplet of water midair before it falls to the ground. He made sure to mention that he isn’t the first person to attempt this trick shot, but that a lot of people have been suggesting that he try it.

To set the scene, he took a bottle of water and pierced a very small hole in the cap and suspended it upside down about five feet off the ground. Small droplets of water fell in approximately 2-second intervals. He positioned a piece of cardboard beside the bottle directly across one of the high-speed cameras, so that the camera can capture the moment clearly. Three high-speed cameras positioned at different angles were recording simultaneously.

His ammo of choice was the .22 Long Rifle (LR) cartridge, a variety of .22 caliber rimfire ammunition. The gun he used had a carbon-fiber barrel, Trijicon Ruggedized Miniature Reflex (RMR) red dot sight mounted, and TANDEMKROSS Victory trigger. After explaining his equipment, he stood about 20 feet away from the bottle, determined to give it his best shot.

The video immediately shows him successfully and amazingly shooting a falling droplet of water. It makes a tiny, but very visible splash. It looks like a scene out of the Matrix as we are shown the exact moment in three different views and in slow motion. He later reveals that it actually took him four shots before he could do it. The failed attempts are shown at the end of the video.

He thought for sure that it would take more tries, but surprisingly, he got it on the fourth try. So for those who are wondering if it’s possible to shoot a falling drop of water with a .22 LR, it’s possible.
