Russian Marksman Makes Music With Guns

Practical Shooting Federation president Vitaly Kryuchin is both an expert shot and a musician, and has combined these two interests in this awesome video.

Accompanied by bandmates Leif Rören, Laura Matilainen, and Milka Suominen, Kryuchin wields two pistols and shoots a series of panels to play a medley of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” “Old MacDonald,” and a traditional Russian song, “Murka.” Kryuchin practiced for two weeks in advance of the stunt, and shot more than 20,000 bullets in the process.

Kryuchin credits his classical guitar background and “intuitive shooting” with the stunt’s success. Scroll down to watch the video.
