    The road stops there. 40yrds of trees into a steep mountain. Pap smear.

    Love the choice of music. Seriously. Neat contrast to blowing the shit out of watermelons. Looking forward to more.

    Not a Doctor, but research quinine.
    You can take vitamin D3 with tonic water. Tonic water has quinine in it. Schweppes actually has it right on the can "Contains Quinine". My understanding is, quinine is a derivative of hydroxychloroquine. Used by the British in Africa to prevent malaria, just like HCQ, (tastes like shit which is why they added gin). If you get a cold or the flu. Tonic water, D3, C and zinc.

    Much appreciated! I'm still learning the ins and outs of my camera, so hopefully the footage will keep getting better.

    Haha! Things got real ugly up there. We actually kicked the melon chunks into the trees, took our paper targets with us, and our empty casings. Trash belongs in the garbage and not on the mountain sides!

    Best use of watermelons I've seen.

    I wonder if they would make a suitable replacement for my 1000 yard gong that somebody found and removed. Would a 160 grain hunting bullet at 3050fps expand enough to blow it up or just punch a little hole in it?

    I'm thinking very ripe pomegranates might make good targets. Come with their own internal seed shrapnel too. Post the entire produce section for comparison sake.

    Watermelon at 1000yrd would be pretty impressive. If you do it, give us a little range report.

    That could be interesting.
