Mas Oyama is good, but he's no Chuck Norris.
That video WAS impressive, but I would have liked to see him doing that with a Cape Buffalo or maybe an American Bison or Australian Buffalo. He didn’t even need a crossbow! Another question since this thread has gotten completely out of control, but very FUN. Could/ would an American (or other country) bull rider attempt to ride a DE HORNED Cape Buffalo?

Come on, Pete, you know that real men hunt buffalo with a knife :D
what kind of scope should i put on my knife for the 300yd throw though? Its a bit of a dilemma, i dont want a red dot though, that fancy technology could fail in the heat of the moment...
I'm thinking min 3-20 zoom, possibly 50mm obj?
Got to have the 50mm for low light conditions...

Did I miss something? I thought Pete G was looking for a reason to purchase another rifle. I.E. something in between the calibers he mentioned. If I'm wrong please forgive me. But in the meantime I'm going to suggest a 404 Jeffery. Reason: just as effective but with a little less thump on the shoulder.

No, this was meant as a humerous thread taking from the nonsense video that was posted of the buff shot with a crossbow and the follow up with the suppressed 30-06.
Now, whats your favourite? Slingshot, Scoped hunting knife or 30-06 with chewing gum bullets?:rolleyes:

Scope is for sissies, Pete, this has to be close and personal.

Just the cold steel as we do in the bullfights :D

Riding would be the easy part...getting off is another story.
Might I suggest having PH's for rodeo clowns!

Pete G was actually looking for a .465 h and h, but Pheroze couldn’t find him a single cartridge in that caliber, let alone a rifle! Ha! Ha! Ha!
