Splattering and Bleeding Zombie Targets

I happened to notice this new product at the Brownells website:

Darkotic Zombie Splatter Target

Mmmmm, pizza!

Made by Birchwood Casey these target utilize the same ‘see your shot’ construction as Shoot-N-C or Dirty Bird targets, only the shots show in a splash of red.    Heh.

The Birchwood Casey website shows eight Darkotic different images to choose from.

UPDATE:  I happened to stumble on another ‘reactive’ zombie target.  The Zombie Industries tactical bleeding zombie target!

.45-70 Silk Purse…

…from a Sow’s Ear.

Mosin-Nagants converted to .45-70

Because they didn't kick enough to begin with

An interesting project and apparently well done too.  However, unless you are the do-it-yourself type that already owns a lathe and enjoys a challenge, I would recommend the Marlin Guide Gun before enduring the expense of converting a $90 rifle.

QOTD: Baden Powell

Stumbling around the intarwebz, I found this gem:

Long before he invented Boy Scouts, Baden-Powell referred to his camping gear as his “toys,” and he then went on to write, “May it not be that our toys are the various media adapted to individual tastes through which men may know their God?”

Found here

I have to admit that I crack a smile reading that.  I do enjoy my “toys” and have had near spiritual experiences while playing with them.

Have you ever been so tuned in during a shooting match as to be able to watch the sunlight reflect of the base of your bullets as they travel from your pistol to the targets?

A simple day ‘playing’ can be just as fulfilling.  Get outdoors, shoot a match, plink, practice, train, hunt, fish, build, fix, create.  Go play with your toys.
