Shot!

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!
