TTAG Exclusive: Kirsten Joy Weiss and The Damsel in Distress

Except she isn’t in distress. She’s wearing blue jeans. Oh wait. The egg. The egg is the damsel in distress. Except the egg isn’t wearing a dress either. But the egg clearly was in distress because SPOILER ALERT she committed suicide. Oh well. You gotta crack a few jokes to make a Kirsten Joy Weiss intro paragraph. Or something like that. [Click here to see more KJW trick shots at her website. Omelette you go now.]

    Good news: The operation was a success.

    Bad news: The patient died.

    I don’t get tired of that laugh.

    TICK SHOTS?!?!?! Damn, she’s good! Or contagious… o.O

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Sigh. Fixed.

  3. avatar Jeh says:

    At least the damsel died with a partial smile

  4. avatar Jay1987 says:

    Poor damsel was so traumatized by the cold calculating destruction of her captors that she jumped off the cliff and fell to her death… well now we know KJW should not be used to rescue eggs from eggnapper Hitler and that eggs develop Stockholm Syndrome remarkably fast.

      1. avatar Jay1987 says:

        Then scrambled before she dashed herself upon the rocks.

      2. avatar Adam says:

        She went Benedict Arnold and turned traitor on her rescuers.

      3. avatar jwm says:

        She was one hard boiled egg that wouldn’t be taken alive.

        1. avatar Kirsten says:

          These are eggcelent

  5. avatar Accur81 says:

    Nice shooting. Would it be irresponsible to do that with a .45-70 against a rock backstop?

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Yes. But if you decide to do it, get film.

  6. avatar Anmut says:

    Shooting eggs at 30 yards with a tricked out 10/22 and a scope is hardly a trick shot.

    Kirsten – your videos need less .22lr and more high power and maybe some tanerite. Bring those eggs to 50 yards and hit them with 1911 flavor .45 with a red dot.

    Just being honest.

    1. avatar Steve says:

      I’d like to see your vid of the same trick shot.

      Just being honest (literally, I’d like to see it).

      Also, can’t wait till KJW starts making trick shots with a Henry lever gun.

      1. avatar Anmut says:

        Steve, us rimfire nuts regularly shoot 10 bull matches like this:

        50 yards hitting a bulls eye that’s just barely bigger than the bullet you’re sending towards it. An egg, even not shooting from a rest with a tricked out .22, isn’t anything to impress me. But that’s just me. Of course, I don’t claim to be a “trick shooter” either. Just a backwoods hillbilly.

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          I realize it’s probably an old thread, but…

          2. AMMUNITION must be Rimfire: Maximum price $4.50 per box of 50. $9.00 per box of 100.

          I wouldn’t be shooting much, because that’s a pretty low bar to get under nowadays.

        2. avatar Kirsten says:

          I’m a competition smallbore shooter 😉 this is a shooting game. For trick shots, higher calibers are in the line up, but should be more than 50yards for a high caliber challenge right?

  7. avatar miserylovescompany says:

    I TOLD you I wanted my eggs scrambled not shot! 😀


  8. avatar Conrad says:

    I think the Birchwood Casey Battleship targets are pretty awesome.

    It’ll be pretty cool to see Kirsten try the Annie Oakley compact mirror trick also.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      I have had a lot more fun with the Battleship targets than I really expected.

  9. avatar BLAMMO says:

    No way I’d be able to see the difference in those eggs from 30 yards. The damsel would have to be another color. Pink would be good.

    1. avatar Kirsten says:

      It’s open to modifications 🙂 just an idea for more range time fun

  10. avatar Jay in Florida says:

    While I enjoy watching her shoot.
    I wish she would use a common 10-22 with maybe just a heavy barrel and a plain old cheapy B&L 3×9.
    Just like the rest of us.
    That looks like a pretty high end Volquartsen (speil cek) to me.
    My 10-22, which I built back in the early 90s and just having a synthetic stock was a big deal back then even for me.
    Just think 1990s Chevy Truck Challenge equipment. That’s my time frame for a high end 22.

    1. avatar Kirsten says:

      If it helps, this shot was pre-crown repair. So try this shot with your 10/22 anyway, I think it’ll still live up to the game

      1. avatar Bob Wall says:

        Glad you can take it all in stride. That’s the mark of a real pro. 😀

  11. avatar RandallOfLegend says:

    Hitting an egg at 30 yards offhand is not some dark magic with an expensive gun. Just good technique.

  12. avatar The Last Marine out says:

    They don’t just want your guns and gun rights, they want the whole bill of rights… why?? As they have a MARKIST world view, Anti- American , Anti-Christian/JEW, Anti-Family, Anti-LIBERTY …. The line in now in the Sand and this will not end NICE…

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Well, that was apropos.

      1. avatar Anmut says:

        Escalation… it was the opposite of slow!

      2. avatar jwm says:

        It has to be said. “If my daughter was on crack I’d pull her out of school.” Never gets old.

        1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

          Dang. Beat me to it!

  13. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Shooting at targets that small from that distance is an
    Eggsacting process.
    Out of ovum, I couldn’t tell the difference….

    1. avatar jwm says:

      If I tried that, I’d have egg on my face.

  14. avatar MOG says:

    The only reason I watch her videos is for the educational value.
