• A long shot is something that is very unlikely to happen.

  • An attempt or effort that is not likely to be successful.

  • Little chance of winning.

1. I know it’s a long shot but can I have your number?


2. The stock was a long shot but I invested all my money, anyway.


3. Winning the lottery is always a long shot.


4. It might be a long shot but cutting the black wire always helps disconnect the circuit when I’m in doubt.
