Jones is getting better and better at the shooting range as he shows off his John Wick like shooting skills. He successfully shot five targets inside six seconds, hitting the first multiple times.

Shooting helps in training the human reflex and also helps in maintaining focus. While shooting, the shooter has to concentrate his mind only on the target, forgetting everything else. With his session, ‘Bones’ clearly showed the world that his reflexes are still sharp and his aim is as precise as ever.
