Re: Shooting off your house’s deck

Edge, If there is any 'announcement" from the bathroom after CHILI night, I'd be interested if a chrony was used to measure velocities. ...Man this thread has gone way off track.

    Negative! It's not me ... perhaps some day I can afford a little luxury as such .

    I'm jealous, you guys are having all the fun living in the country.
    That was great fireforming and scaring the $$hit out of that ladies dog.
    All I can do is use my pellet rifle to control the neighbor hood pesky birds.
    When I lived in Ohio, across the street were houses and behind them about 2 miles of woods. I used my dresser to shoot crows with the 25-06 in a big old dead tree about 250 yds away over the tops of the houses. They were single story houses and I lived in a 2 story. I would close the window right after I shot because some of the neighbors would come outside and wonder what it was. They never called the cops, I was lucky.

    I kick open the front door, use the coffe table as a rest my range is 30 yards. I live in the bush in northern B.C. When I touch of the ought 6 it do rattle the windows some. Scared to try the 375H&H, I do believe the windows would not hold up too good. 30 yards is a perfect distance to bore site. By the time I get to the range I am already on paper.

    If you ever do decide to try the 375H&H out the window, then by all means please video.

    Eaglesnester, Try opening all the windows and sometimes hanging a towel or blanket in front of the window will buffer the shockwave a bit.

    Not that I'm condoning discharging a firearm in the city limits, but if I were...I'd move back into the house as far as I could, open all the windows I could and hang dark towels over them. The upside is that the location is hard to pinpoint because the sound is both muffled and re-distributed. The down side is that you can't see anyone approaching if you're shooting out the front door. Almost need a spotter to make it safe. No big deal on the second story however.

    Also, the open windows tend to ventilate the gunpowder smell rapidly so the wife doesn't figure things out when she gets home from working all day while we think of ways to shoot at things from within our house.

    Liked the hot tub shot! Now that's hunting!
