One thing that is consistent in all the stories of O-Sensei dodging bullets were that the people shooting had little intrest in hitting him.

A) In Mongolia the bandits, or whatever, knew that dead hostages pay no ransom.

B) The police shooting team didn't want to shoot a guy just to test thier ability. Ask yourselves if you could do that.

The story of the Zen monk type hunter that O-Sensei would not test proves the point to me that O-Sensei may not have been able to dodge bullets, but he could do something that's as close as you can get in this life and that's read the intent of his attacker.

That rates a 'Yes' vote in my book.
