Anvil Shooting: Strangest Sport In The World?

Here’s Gay Wilkinson, who is the world champion anvil shooter. He can shoot 100lb anvils, over 100 feet in the air and claims his record is 200 feet.

Anvil shooting involves placing one anvil upside-down on the ground, filling a brick-shaped cavity in its underside with black powder, and then carefully – with a thick paper patch to prevent sparks – placing another on top of it.

Then the anvil-shooter lights the fuse and runs as fast as he can out of the blast radius.

Could anvil shooting be the strangest sport in the world?

I don’t think they could take down a plane, but they can certainly take out a human!

Look at the last video on this page to see a close call:

The entire base anvil was completely destroyed!
