RVN11B gave me an idea for the next interactive target shooting game.

I think everyone who wants to should print out a picture of a pumpkin on an 8.5x11 piece of paper, and shoot a jack-o-lantern face into it! Then take a picture, post it here and we'll have voting. What do you think?

Possible rules (open for discussion):

Pumpkins must be shot from at least five yards.

Any weapon, any caliber may be used.

Judging will be based on accuracy, style, originality, with extra points given for greater distance or other factors that make it more difficult (such as no rest, one handed, whatever). Extra points also given for shooting a real pumpkin and taking pictures of that. (I don't think my range would approve, but some of you back yard shooters might want to try that.)

Thoughts?

I don't think you would recognize anything similar to a jack-o-lantern if I did that!
My local range allows paper shooting only.

That would make a great paper target, but I think one should specify wether it was shot with a handgun or rifle.... and ah no shotguns allowed. :D

Now cut that out! You're losing it EddieF...I can't draw and cut out a decent jack-o-lantern, let alone shoot one.:D Think I'll just stick with the regular target match.

rman, in addition to not being able to draw, you seem to have some difficulty following instructions! Print one out! Then I bet you could make a face with bullet holes from five yards with a scoped rifle, if not, you're right, you should stick to regular target shooting. Or possibly bowling!

Well, truth be told I'm not sure I could shoot a face into a picture of a pumpkin. I'm just waiting for someone else to try it!
