I want to as well. Just have to figure out how to get 8 days from a 7 day week.

Really good videos so far guys. Pumpkins seem to be far tougher opponents than I had previous anticipated. I know Mersa has a plumb bob of destruction. And KTO don't you have some kind of massive steel ball bearing of doom laying around? This may call for heavier firepower........    Smiley Grin


Careful what you wish for Morphy! I do have some fireworks at hand Roll Eyes

Well sir the gauntlet is thrown. Fireworks it is.  Cheesy. Remember there is no such thing as  fighting fair against our pumpkin enemies. We give no quarter and no mercy is expected. This is a fight to the death.

The sun was shining and I had a little time before the sun went down and the average walkers started coming out. Found a empty spot and had a sling at the pumpkin of doom. Better rocks hardness wise , maybe a little heavier/denser. Picked up 30 odd stones roughly the same size , set the pumpkin and camera and got straight into it.
Shot 16 was a direct hit , I had 2 more hits that glanced of the side of the pumpkin at shot 27 and 30.

A much more successful day. No warm up and a new spot. The stone that hit direct was pretty blunt. If it was sharper I think it would have imbedded. But then again this pumpkin a beast.

I'll post the videos if I can . But here's some pics

Nice work! I've left my pumpkin a bit too long... It's pretty smelly and is going a little bit green and fluffy in places...

after halloween I said.
That way you can go round your neighbourhood and collect all the carved pumpkins and use them for targets Smiley

So sometime in november shall we say Smiley

I left my pumpkin far too long. Went very fuzzy and squishy. I might get a second one if they drop the price at the end of the month. I got some fairly ok hits so I'm pretty happy. I would still want to try out a steel ball on one...

I'm in the same boat . My pumpkin maybe has one more session left it it but it has definitely started to go hairy .
I want to try steel or lead , but I'd say im done with the odd stones
