Got a light? Striking a match via .22LR (VIDEO)

Rimfire expert 22Plinkster says he has been trying for years to get a match to light via trick shot, and he thinks he finally figured out the secret.

Saying it is the most asked for but apparently hardest trick for him to pull off over the years (“the Tennessee Titans have a better shot at winning the Superbowl”), it appears the problem was that he was using strike-on-box safety matches and not the old school “strike anywhere” matches.


With said ignition sticks swapped out, let’s roll that beautiful bean footage and see if ‘Plink can pull it off with his slightly modded Volquartsen S&W Victory and some Federal Premium Gold Medal UltraMatch ammo.
