    Pumpkin shoot

    Anyone interested in getting together and shooting some pumpkins? I'm thinking next weekend. Near "Wisconsin dells", I will be providing pumpkins, although you would have to pay a few bucks for the range time. Any interest?

    Couldn't tell ya. It'll be at either m&m or out at big shooters. But for reference, to people who have no idea where else are, the dells is just easier. We just talked about that Tuesday. Lol.

    I've heard larger calibers take care of them in one hit. I want to see if that is true.

    Well, if it's on Saturday, and only a few people; it's possible that you could just come to my house and shoot them. Even better, you'd just have to throw the expired pumpkins in the tall grass so no massive cleanup. I've got to sight in some of my rifles anyway.

    I pretty much know you guys so if nothing comes up on my end, I don't mind. If too many people get interested though, best off at the range.

    Not too early to get the rumor going on the internet, Twitter, Facebook, whatever.

    I heard the Madison PD demonstrator control tactical unit, has some training exercises in the Dells area this weekend. What are they buying all the pumpkins for?

    You are invited. Like I said, next weekend. I would venture to guess Saturday. I'm about to go talk to the local ranges, and see who will let us do it. I'm sure most will enjoy the extra couple bucks they will make.

    Heh, I know my CVA .50 BP pushing Hornady XTPs just punches a hole in a pumpkin, I'm guessing there's not enough resistance in the gourd to facilitate mushrooming. Now those hard little summer squash type gourds...well the XTP will make 'em vaporize on a good hit.

    Oh, yea, back to the OT, have fun with the pumpkin shoot, even if they don't explode dramatically, it's still a great day.

    I'm in Baraboo so it would like a 20 minute drive for me. I have some 9mm I could burn up.

    If the range I contact today works out, we will be shooting "punkins" around 10-11am ish. Then cleaning up said "punkins". Followed by a Culvers meet in Mauston. (You all know why I love Culvers.) Then, a canoe trip... (Who does not get the joke?) I will have more info this afternoon, after talking with the range owner.

    How about shooting at Brass Magnet's place? At least we won't have to clean up (as much).

    I thought he was talking about last weekend when I offered. This is one week too close to deer season. Don't want to run 'em all out with loud bangs before I have a chance to shoot them. Of course, they would have some nice pumpkin to eat....deposited by natural uh...agricultural means....

    So, the range is best right now. You guys will have to come out and shoot some time though.

    Anyway, a range visit and Culvers sounds pretty good. I'm looking forward to meeting a couple of you that I haven't yet met.
