    I Went To The DVD Rental Store Today

    So what, you say? What does this have to do with guns?

    Well, it seems that I've found a good source for...


    Targets.


    You know, the life sized silhouettes of movie stars, on heavy cardboard stock, that the stores use to promote new DVD releases. When they're done with them, they just throw them away.

    I picked up this one of Will Smith (I Am Legend) today. And no, this has no racial overtones, and yes, my club's range has no target restrictions.

    Now I just have to find one of George Clooney.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Great idea! I never thought about what happens to all those old movie posters....if you stockpile them, you might be able to make a buck in 10 years or so. I like the targets idea better!

    My daughter works at a movie theater. Maybe she can get me a few.

    She did get me a Pirates Who Don't Do Anything poster, but somehow, I just don't think I could shoot Larry the Cucumber.

    When I had my archery shop I always wanted to get some Barney posters for targets. I think they would have gone over bigtime!

    I "aquired" a couple of old stuffed barney's ...... saturated 'em with water. SPLAT!

    Those movie star cutouts as targets is aGREAT idea!! Will try that.
    My old next door neighbor got a full-sized cutout of Laura Croft for his birthday a few years back. Never thought to grab some for the range.

    Yeah, but those french peas look like they are up to no good.

    Years ago I worked at a music store and got the call from the alarm company that there'd been a break in.

    I arrived right on the heels of the police and waited outside as they cleared the store. They'd been in just a minute when I heard: "Get down!" "GET DOWN!" "GET! DOWN! NOW!".

    It was about this time both officers sheepishly realized that Eddie Van Halen was not, in fact, burgling our store but that they'd drawn down on a lifesize cardboard standup.

    That's going to take a lot of ammo.
