Shot Again - The Bullet Catch

The Bullet Catch. By far the most dangerous Magic trick known to mankind. 12 magicians have died doing the Bullet Catch and ever since I made my version of it, every time i perform it I just hope that I wont be the unlucky 13th. So what is The Bullet Catch? Simple. Someone shoots at you and you catch the bullet, in your hand in your mouth or even in your feet. Well, doesn't sound as simple or sweet does it?
The first time I performed The Bullet Catch I nearly lost my right hand, but over time it has become one of the best stage endings for me. Someone shoots and I catch the bullet and I'm alive to tell the tale. It's an illusion that people talk about to their family and friends, it's something you have to see to believe!! The Bullet Catch, the illusion that has taken 12 lives and made the lives of many many Magicians helping them to become famous! Will I be next in line?

When you first hear the word Shot, something scary comes to mind. One imagines a helpless person standing at gun point about to be "Shot." But this is not at all what I mean. Shot is simply a card trick.
Imagine this, I bring out a deck of cards and hand them over to be shuffled by a spectator and he takes out a card and signs it. All this while my back is turned.
I turn back around take the deck and make them confirm that the chosen card is still in the deck and then hand the deck back over. I then introduce an air gun (i don't really have a license to use a real gun :P). I ask the spectator to throw the deck of cards in the air and I shoot. Next thing we know the bullet punctures a hole in the signed card!
Okay, this seems impossible but what happens next seems even more unbelievable. The card is mixed back into the deck and handed to another spectator, the spectator who originally picked a card is given the gun. The second spectator throws the deck in the air and the first spectator shoots and a new second hole is punctured in the deck!
Coming Soon, another trick with a gun, the much hyped Bullet Catch!
