    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?

    You would need a stone with a good sectional density. Granite maybe?

    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...

    Consider using recently erupted volcano lava, the hot core is sure to replicate the venerable DGX rounds...

    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!
