Halloween being long gone, I had close to twenty fair sized pumpkins to dispose of. I called up my Son and Nephew for a little pumpkin shoot. Pistols at 25 yards, rifles at 100. Pick your weapon, but no 'scopes or .22's. Loser cook's supper ( a beef roast, potatoes, veggies, etc.) Son shows up with his Armalite M-15 and his Beretta 92 FS. Nephew shows up with an SKS's and a Taurus .40 S&W. I used one of my SMLE MKIII, and my Colt SAA .45. We pretty much had a three way tie with the rifles, although I argued that my .303 had a much more deadly effect on the charging pumpkins. With the pistols things got a little confused as my two compadres swore I hadn't designated the target's properly, and the fifth pumpkin from the left I shouldn't have shot because that was my Son's target and now it was so torn up from that .45 round it wasn't a fair mark any longer. I saw which way this was going, and said OK, just shoot, I'll cook. Nice day, Wives were happy they got to relax while I cooked, and we got to argue about the shooting. Now what am I going to do with all those dead pumpkins?
