Damn I thought the guy on the left was bad... but you... you take the cake.  Killing Frosty.  


Just.... damn.

Holy crap....you vaporized the poor bastard!

One minute Frosy's enjoying the crisp cold air, next thing he knows, he is the crisp cold air.

My only suggestion would be to put a little more effort in to making Frosty look a little more "realistic" as far as a face, maybe a carrot nose...whatever. Also, possibly a non-tannerite side by side? Perhaps a shotgun with slugs?

Edited to add: How about using a cantalope as his head, and pack snow around it? Just a thought.

There was a time on guard duty in Bosnia that I totally lost it on a snowman the previous squad had left.  We were working 4 on and 8 off.  Everytime our squad went out it would snow.  After 3 weeks of this the snowman had to die.  It had it's own broom which I took from it and laid waste to the snowman until he was just a pile.  The rest of the squad just laughed their asses off as I assaulted this snowman with his own broom  Wish they would have had a camcorder.

You had to be there, man, you had to be there.  

He was attacking me, every 4 hours, it was 4 hours of snow, and then it would quit when we got off shift.

Must have been a 'well disciplined' snowman to just stand there and take that smack-down.

He forgot to log out of his troll account!

Another downside of living in a neighborhood is that you can't blow up your snowman.

Throw a few ketchup bottles in there next time.

Frosty is gonna be pissed when he finds out about this!

This was my initial proof of concept and there will definitely be more to follow. In doing so, I can see the targets and the videos becoming more formal and more refined. I plan to set up several scenarios with multiple targets, include multiple shooters, and otherwise have fun and be creative. Perhaps the sport will catch on and I will see others posting video here, so go ahead and try it!

This particular sample was over 6 feet tall, about 3 feet wide, and stood about 100 yards away. Narration provided by my best friend and shooting partner, my 10 year old son; vanishing effect provided by tannerite and one round of .223 fired from an AR15.

Vanishing Snowman



HA!
Tannerite is just too much fun.

I haven't tried it yet because I could easily wind up with a $100 a day habit.

The snowman looked suspicious, his eyes were dead and black like coal so I drew down on the biotch.

That'll leave a mark

If the scumbag didn't have his hands in his pockets, this would NEVER have happened !
