my shooting area

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Fri Nov 24, 2006 4:02 pm

this is where I shoot and get targets. no, It's not the same pics you've seen before. there are also pics of where I get targets. I recently cleaned up the ares surrounding where I shoot, so here you go.



paintball mortar, anyone? :twisted:

Image



this is what it looks like elevated, ready to shoot

Image



kinda menacing, huh? :twisted:

Image



a farther off view

Image



a side view

Image



I can shoot this direction with no fear of hitting anything, since the range of the cannon (according to the ggdt) is 1.12 miles. there are 2 miles of wilderness in this direction

Image



here's my stack of targets. about 3.5 feet high, and as big as an 80's lincon towncar hood.

Image



various things I use while shooting (blocks for changing elevation, barrels, ammo, etc.)

Image



this is one of my ammo buckets

Image



a wet sand filled 2" pvc canister with a lag bolt through the front

Image



a cartridge, fits in 2"

Image



a hydraulic cement filled Gatorade bottle after going through 5 sheets of 3/4 inch plywood

Image



this is the magical farmers junkyard back n the woods where all my targets come from :lol:
It's not that I'm a hillbilly, It's way back in the woods, and I didn't put it there. this is where the farmers put their garbage from 140 years ago, until about 1980. this was before garbage trucks came and collected trash from around here.

Image
Image

a prime target.
Image



the lawnmower that will die via swat gun eventually.

Image



oh, here's some more appliances that are going to be used as targets eventually.

Image



this would be fun to shoot since the steel is thick. I have no doubt I could penetrate it.

Dude, I'm so jealous! That is no fair!!! I live in a city that is quite restrictive on space compared to that. Thats why i've never made anything much bigger than a mini.

FREE TARGETS!?!?!?! NO FAIR!!!!

LOL, you should check for extensive rust in there, and if there isn't use it for a combustion chamber!!!!

why is that embarrassing?

your grandparents have a tennis court? that's cool.

I kinda like living in the city, you are never far from nice stores and such, but it really sucks when you want to ride dirtbikes or shoot spudguns or light huge fireworks or have really loud music or..... you get the point.


As long as I had friends nearby, so I didn't die of bordom, I would be VERY happy to live outside a city!!!!

And again, I like my house, a LOT.

*Sigh*

Edit: LOL, Recruit, where I come from, people would call you a redneck!

I have a question, why don't you make a golf ball barrel for the swat gun? That Would be sweet to send a golf ball a mile or so. Also, why is there a white pvc part on it?

Yeah, I've lived in a city all my life, so I dont really
know any different. Sure, I've been outside it, l
ots of times, but again, it doesn't bug me too much
because I'm used to it.
I would be extremely bored if I moved though,
no friends. Although, I would be able to to all of the stuff listed above!! :P

Oh yeah, I have to go to huge parks to launch model rockets! :evil:

Here's my house

I own a section of that wooded part, which is as wide as my property line, a lot bigger than most people's yards where I live.
