An outside editor!? I feel like this is the beginning of an arms race. Next year is going to be ridiculous...


He he. I like where’s this is going, but “ridiculous“ is kinda what I was going for THIS year. Well... at least we have a whole year to come up with a new video.

I already have my plan for next years pumpkin challenge.
Almost everything I wanted to achieve in this year’s went to plan.
But don’t forget we also have the annual “Easter Egg Challenge” and given the success of this year’s pumpkin challenge I have high hopes for the Egg challenge too.

Aw yeah!  That was awesome.

Talk about consistency. Did you see how many chips were taken out of the wall high right? Same pumpkin sized spot almost every time.

Bonus points for the bonus round. That ain't easy.

I count eight entries so far.  We still have two weeks left before voting time.  We only need 2 more video entries to unlock the Razor Glandes face mask prize.

Who else is in?

Is it unique entries, or competitors?  PracticalParacord has two links in the fist post of the challenge.

Thanks everyone, I hadn’t practiced at all with that ammo and it was the first serious slinging session in about 2 weeks, it took a little adjusting to find my groove again but I was pretty happy, think it took 13 shots for my direct hit with the big scary 300g glande.
I was hoping to continue using the glande but it really imbedded itself in the pumpkin. Straight through the front and cracked the back of a fresh pumpkin. A big improvement on previous years. It’s a scary bit of ammo and only just fits in my pouch, you can kinda tell how hesitant I am to try put power into the shot.
I changed camera angle after because I wanted to try see the pumpkin getting hit with the smaller ammo, and yeas I was missing slightly high right almost every miss.
I also loved the pass through. I don’t know if you can tell but it goes pretty much in the mouth and out the back of the pumpkin.
Aerial shot was good too only took 3 try’s , but I wish I caught it better on film it’s just in frame.
Tungsten was crazy only threw it once because it’s very expensive and I didn’t want to lose my best piece, but man that barely left a hole just pushed straight through no problems. With a stone that would have glanced for sure.
I kinda felt bad I put some serious holes in the wall, the steel was just little chips but the big glande was putting massive holes.

My original plan was to sink a pumpkin as last year I discovered they float quite well, but after seeing just what the pumpkin challenge was providing this year I was quickly discouraged from the idea, i did however go and take my remaining pumpkin to my usual slinging spot and attempt it, I can confirm that unles you embed rocks into the pumpkin it will not sink, I basically had a boat made of a pumpkin and I filled it with water after 5 or so minutes of slinging but it wouldn’t sink it just sat at the very top of the water, I was going to include the clips in my video but I was happy with the way the video turned out so I left it out.

I’ll add a small clip so you see my point.

I always put the entries on the first post of the thread as soon as I see them. 8 entries so far.

That is funny. Even if you hit at the waterline it would still float.

You actually hit the pumpkin on the secoind throw in the bonus round you can see bits of pumpkin splatter in mid air.

Not easy that !
