Ditto, braking one in now. From the bench to the garage floor, shoot out the door and back to the bench to clean again. It is snowing or I would go to the drive pad where I have steel to 1600 yards...

    This was my first through tenth vote, but over my deck is a shed and under that both cars are parked along with a John Deere Gator. I would shoot one of the three right smack in the windshield.

    I have thought long and hard about the prone option but it just ain't there.

    Could park the wife's car out in the sun but I wouldn't be seeing her for a couple of days or so...at least until the swelling in both my eyes went down enough...

    Well, maybe if you moved her car first, then yell ''fire in the hole'' your wife would only black 1 eye.......... look at Roy, he uses his manners and gets 1/2 the bed......
    Just make sure whatever you shoot is worth it

    How about a set up like this?



    Good luck!

    Roy reminded me of the time the police came to my house. I'm semi-rural just inside city limits with a neighbor about 300 yards from the house. Cop said neighbor had called because her dog was freaked out by the noise and was sh!tting all over the house and how it was illegal to discharge a firearm inside city limits. I explained to him that I wasn't shooting but fire forming brass to 25-06AI with Blue Dot and a wad of toilet paper and how fireworks were legal and this was essentially the same thing. After some deliberation he agreed after watching me fire one off and left.

    Is that a beer in the hot tub with you and your rifle?
