How to Make the "Machine Gun" Pool Trick Shot

Learn how to make the "Machine Gun" shot from pool trick shot champion Andy Segal in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Andy "The Magic Man" Segal. I'm Here at Willow in Hoboken New Jersey doing some trick shots and pooling instructions, so if you're ready let's get started. This is the "Machine Gun Masse Shot". It's a very classic pretty shot. You have eleven balls lined up here. Each ball is one ball off the rail, you have the eight ball hanging, the Q ball is touching the tenth ball and you have three more balls here for wait and the idea behind the shot is I'm gonna shoot down on the Q ball with so much spin that the Q ball is gonna find it's way down this tunnel here contacting every ball in the rail like this, finally pocketing the eight ball in the corner pocket. Now if you notice I have here a scrap piece of cloth. It's underneath the Q ball and what that does is that protects the felt. So when I shoot down, if I hit the table I'm actually hitting that scrap piece of felt as suppose to the felt on the table just in case. That's the Machine Gun Shot.
