Default Making a mess at the range

These are just a few out-takes from a range session the other day. I make a mess shooting a watermelon and cans of shaving cream with a .44 Magnum Taylors 1892 Alaskan rifle, and with a .357 Magnum Ruger Security Six revolver and a .30 Tokarev CZ52 pistol.

That looks like great fun. I want to buy a 12 pack of cheap pop and shoot each can. I have shot a watermelon. It was very fun.

Just make sure you clean up before you leave.

I would be so in the dog house if I shot a watermelon the wife might just never speak to me again. Now for old soft drink cans, milk jugs filled with colored water, water balloons they are all fair game. I like to shoot these with new shooters so they can see some of the power that a bullet has. The clean up is the down side.

For her Birthday she gets a water melon with candles in it instead of a Birthday cake. We have to plant water melons every year as she loves them and at $6-10 each it gets into my ammo money.

I'm partial to pumpkins. I never met a pumpkin I didn't want to blast. The advantage of shooting fruits and vegetables over soda cans is that they are biodegradable.
