Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Not good for a public or private range, but I once shot a can of spray foam with a 7mm Mag and filmed it with a high speed camera. It was pretty damn cool watching that explode.

If you have a 460Wby Mag, you can do like my uncle and cousins do .... 1 and 5 gal buckets full of paint.

I've shot full cans of shaving cream. I got the cheap Barborsol they sell for 1$ a can. I hit one with a 12 ga slug and it exploded in a rush of white mist.

I would think that any spray can would erupt in a fireball if hit with a fire burning nearby. The goal would be to puncture & incinerate at the same time. Just make sure everyone is a safe distance from the target before shooting. Ending up in a burn unit would really suck. By the way, I have never done this.

Some ranges,especially indoor ranges may restrict this sort of thing,so be careful.

Empty toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls hung from a string or piece of yarn. When the tubes get raggedy, we aim for the string/yarn. My grandson has a blast doing this.

Apart from the polution this causes, have you figured out what paint costs for the average mortal?

You should try 12 gauge hulls, they are great little .22 targets, and pretty well free at any range where skeet is available.

I like to shoot those free AOL trial CD's and wood/tile/marble samples you get at your local Lowes.
