We had a lot of hanging branches here, so I had to call up Dr. Remington for some clean up

    This was only about 20 feet up. I need some slugs for the ones 60+ feet up. Pellets didn't do anything nor did .22 or 9mm :eek:

    Probably not the best technique for urban forestry.

    Me too! But a phantom neighbor still tried to press charges on me for target shooting! I shot 5 times with a singleshot at a 125 target, I even walked to it to see where I had hit between shots. If he was back there he had plenty of time to say something, but he didn't. The State Police took my part fortunately.

    That is one nice way to take down limbs though, I will give it a try!

    Man, that would irritate the heck out of me. We've been here like a year and a half and i've never seen a cop or a neighbor. I do hear gunfire occasionally though. Here's my range...

    At least you have little concern about bullet travel. Where I live, it can go for a long ways.;lol
    (and yes, it is that flat in all directions.)

    Nice. And yeah, I try not to get too crazy here. Looking out towards that mountain there's not a single house. That being said, if I ever find 5.56mm again I plan on taking it out there. There's an old berm from something that was bulldozed that would be perfect to use as a backstop

    Ahhh yes... but I digress. Lets not turn this into a gun thread. That is a sure way to see this tread head south (ash can).
