Apparently, this term evolved from the movie "Quigley Down Under" starring Tom Selleck and his 'stash, where he makes the shot of a lifetime? Haven't seen the movie, but has anyone made a paintball Quigley?
If I'm thinking of the correct news feed, it was a British Sniper. It was also a new world record shot at just over a mile and a half. It sounds like the round used was .338 Lapua.
Oh, and I haven't made a shot like that but was on the receiving end. We were playing a game of revolution. One of the guys fired a ball, hit a twig in front of myself and another guy. We were both hit in the legs. That was one of those WTF moments. It was cool shot though.
