A sharpshooter hangs up his hat, turns around and walks 5000 meters in one direction, then turns around and shoots his gun, putting a hole right through his hat. How did he do it?

He hung the hat up on his gun.

This one is silly. As he is a sharpshooter, he could realistically have actually shot his hat from 50 metres; there’s no puzzle here.

You’re right. I’ve changed it to 5000 meters.

It could also be he walked 5000 meters around the hat because you never said he walked straight right?
