it does look too nice to shoot!
But do you want to use it as a target or a prop?
Either way it will be fun!

Hope you guys haven't popped that front glass yet.

Would you consider, before we shoot at it, putting a silouette target in the driver's seat and putting one 5.56 shot through the front glass to see if it deflects? Inquiring minds want to know, for purely informational/educational purposes of course.

(Hey you never know when you might need to do it for real, I wanna know what the penetration through auto glass is dammit!)

OK ....I think I better re-evaluate my ammo....hmmmm....started with a conservative 250 from experience in my first shoot.....with the reactives I thought I might have to bump (pun intended) it up to 500....now I gotta have at least 750....dammit!! If I could make an even grand I would!!! Dammit!!

Hey Jeff does that still run? If so would you be against setting it in park w/ the emergency brake on, and ramming a rod onto the accelerator making it rev full open, then we could open fire on a hot engine!!!! WHHHHEEEEEEEEE-OOOOOO!!!!!!!!! BOOOOOM!!!
I can just see the steam from the 200 instant holes in the radiator as well as the pistons flying out from the cracked engine block as the flywheel rips through the hood!!!


But thats just me.......

METALMAN, I'd say you need to seek professional help except for one thing-- I like you the sick way you are!

Seriously though, you don't want exploding pistons. I used to work at Kansas City International Raceway and I've seen entire driveshafts fly more than 100 yards from an engine kaboom. And yes the driver walked away from his Malibu that day.

Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy. (Licking his chops) How about an alien Fedayeen zombie watermelon(since there is no snow yet) in the seat, now we're talking about a realistic situation. And here I just ran out of fireworks....Yeah right, just kidding. I was thinking that maybe we could get that sucka to fly. Jeff, is it alright to bring other stuff, like TV, another washer and a dryer? Didn't want to just haul a bunch of stuff out without asking.
Man I can't wait till the sixth. This is giving me a chubby.

My Grand Marquis died on Zeny and stranded her at the VFW last week, so we're looking for a new car. If we get it, I'd be more than happy to donate the Blue Bomber as a target/prop. I could use it to show the guys how to use a vehicle for proper cover, how to exit a vehicle when under fire, and how to take out someone using a vehicle for cover.

Then, CAR GO BOOM! Does Tannerite come in 55 gallon drums?

Technically no, theorhetically yes, but of course a boom that loud would probably bring out the national guard. The amount that set off the washing machine was actually less than what would fill a half gallon milk jug. I wouldn't want to be around a 55 gal. drum when it went off. But I like your thinkin.

Is your shop close to the land we'll be shooting on?

I need a couple little bits and pieces.
