    Azz Hats like Mathews just don't understand that professionals make their own luck.

    AMEN! Did you know he is seriously thinking about running for Senator from Pa.! I was born and raised in Pa. and believe they will vote for him. Just look at their voting record in the last 10 years, how very sad..

    eek! my son lives in PA and I would hate to see that guy any where near the government!
    He would just sit there and drool over Obozzo and be a 'yes' man to anything he's told to do....sigh.... he's such a wimp!

    well their job is to tick you off. they get ratings that way.

    we all know it wasnt luck. i also dont think it was that hard of a shot eigther. the target was only aobut 100 feet. i know some will dissagree. but these guys train for this and do shoot moving targets. this was a walk in the park for them, not for all but for them. luck had nothing to do with it.

    i have seen many guys in new mexico huntin antelop at distance with gale force winds, to the point its pushing you around even prone. a guy with no experience hits one at 400 yrds in that condition, now that is luck. i havent seen much of that. usually its the antelop that's lucky.

    the more i learn about this the more i am amazed. the navy tied a rope to the liferaft and dragged them out to sea. I didn't know that till tonight. These guys were sitting ducks. i think its funny. you know if you waited till they all fell asleep you could pull them right up to the ship and jump on.
    hmmmmm.

    these pirates are morons amoung others out there. but i guess we know that because if they had braines they would be able to feed themselves.

    sorry i derailed again.

    To be fair the way I am seeing it he asked if it "COULD" be chalked up to luck. I hate to be defending someone like Chris Mathews but that is what I heard. Stupid question sure, but this seems to me like when the Democrats said Rush wants America to fail.

    They lucked out 3 times, I don't think so. It was a great shoot and at night no less.

    My hats off to those guys, some shooting or what!!

    My only beef is that one was still alive.

    I don't think it was luck at all. It was skill.

    Funny thing, the more they practice and train and work at it, the luckier they seem to get...
