Nice hit!  How did you get a sheet of ice standing up like that?  Without knowing otherwise, I would have guessed it was glass.

As you can see there are two levels in the fountain. We just got the ice sheet from the first level upwards. As the ice was pretty thick and exactly as wide as the pond it got stuck in that vertical position. When the ice falls to the lower part of the fountain you can see that slides over the ice there whithout braking it.

That's a great idea, even though it's just one shot.

We're currently in a bit of a mild temperature stretch where I live, so there's no ice around.  Once the weather dips down under the freezing point again, I'll try to set up something to create some ice targets.  I definitely like the idea.  I usually use ice as the projectile, not as the target.

I hear that! Cheesy

I don't like wearing a glove on my slinging hand at all.  I'll tolerate it if it's really cold out, but usually I wear one glove on my left hand and try to handle the ice with that.
