Default long distance pumpkin shooting

Don't forget this is the time of year to buy up the extra pumkins for the long distance shoot out with your buddies. Pretty cool watching what that 30-06 does to those things

I never shot a pumpkin but I did shoot a watermelon. It was pretty awesome.

Shot pumpkins for the first time! We were shooting 12Ga slugs and #00 Buckshot at 10 & 25 yards. This year we might go Long Range and do 30 cals at 200Yds....

This is our pumpkin shoot from last year. A saiga 12 and glock 21 caused that. I can't wait for this years.

We shot pumpkins last year with our mosin nagants. Those puppies exploded like there was a bomb inside them. Already have a few for this years pumpkin slaughter.

My wife works for the city and they put out a lot of pumpkins in displays. They let employees take them home after Halloween so I get a many as I have room for. Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays.
