Response to TreasonousBastard (Reply #32)

34. Not really, no.

here is no "bolt problem". The time between the first and last shot? 8.3 seconds (estimated based on the known average framerate of Abraham Zapruder's 8mm Bell & Howell camera. One miss, two hits. On a target less than a hundred yards away, moving at a speed of about 12 mph. The "approximately six seconds" (or 5.6, if you prefer) so often cited is the elapsed time between the two shots that hit. Not all three total. It's not only quite achievable, it's been replicated. (Not the precise, exact shots, but multiple hits, same distance, moving target.) Asserting that it's "problematic" is making a claim directly contradicted by physical evidence and empirical testing.
