Asking for an acquaintance.

This is a purely academic query in ballistics exercise.

Az advised be said entity. As advised by said entity.

Edited for grammar, spelling and typoing.

We need video of your acquaintance's test. You know, so we don't have to try it ourselves...

Are you practicing your Bendablese? (I can't seem to find my decoder ring to confirm.)

Or just hitting the bottle?


Also, I'm not familiar with the "yatds" unit of measurement. What's that in equivalent furlongs or arshins?

I imagine you would get a result similar to shooting it with a shotgun:
