All I can say is the hogs in that area had better get body armor because they are in for a whole new world of hurt.

Re: Drop Test ....

Hey Roy,

I have shot up at our place many nights. I am not sure whats the deal is where your at either. Maybe the ground just holds the heat more than the sandy grassy area we shoot on. I generally use a couple of Colman lanturns with aluminum foil on half of the globe. Either type have worked using the liquid fuel or the LP type. Just set them up on a cinder block, a few yards up front, and off to the side a couple of feet and go for it.

I generally only shoot out to 300 yards though, so to sort of be able to keep up with any roaming livestock. We generally check the area before shooting with a spotlight to be sure nothing has slipped in on us. Depending on where we at, we can isolate them on one place but not the other.
