    SIG - Pumpkin study!

    Visited with wife yesterday to see her sister - they grow all sorts of squashes and also some pumpkins.

    Thought this fella night be of interest - it is estimated right now to be around 160# and it is hard to even lift it on one side!! It's still on the vine and will be a while yet.

    Naturally - had to make things gun oriented so - SIG in place for scale!

    P95,

    How did you resist shootin' that punkin'?

    Strictly for scientific purposes, of course!


    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.

    If you can't lift it, guess you'll have to shoot it!

    GREAT difficulty LOL!!

    There was another one near as big too but that was not a good color. Supposedly these were ''spoken for'' and so I'd not have won any brownie points had I got to shootin' em up!

    Funny tho - I took my 45-70 BFR for Bro-in-law to try - he loved it - but somehow was reluctant for me to ''test'' the 405 bullet on a pumpkin :poke: Had to shoot logs instead!

    Somebody beat me to it, but I can't believe you didn't want to see what the SIG could do to that! Or, are you just holding out for watermellon?

    Actually, the SIG with it's GD's would have been fun - but as I mentioned, this specimen was effectively ''pre-sold''!

    Pity!

    Meanwhile On A serious Note

    And Just Looking At Your Photograph As A Photograph.
    That is really an odd photo if you think about it just as an "art" photograph and NOT in the context of a gun forum photo.
    If that were on display in a gallery most folks looking at that photograph would wonder how a handgun came to rest atop a pumpkin & what the story was behind the photo.
    It would be a real, true puzzle to the "Art Crowd"

    Acutally they would probley wonder why that Sig was terrorizing that poor pumpkin and if guns where banned that couldnt happen ...
