Who wants to shoot an iMac?

Postby chasetheonly » Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:28 am

So my friend has reached a boiling point with his iMac, and said he wants to shoot it with a pellet gun he has.

An idea came to mind with my .308... and I figured, why not make a nice YouTube video/fun out of it? A few screen cracking shots with the pellet gun, then a lovely .308 strength test?

I need a place (ideally with 100yard+ range) to do this, and thought it could be fun to maybe get whoever knows a place to partake in the action as well, along with some other general shooting.

Anybody know of a nice place to lay a tarp and camera for our "office space" style redemption?

My aunt has farmland in Litchfield county and my cousin has a range of sorts on the premises. About 160 meters with an eroded earthen backstop. We'll just have to pick up the debris.
Go on Friday or Saturday and catch the local gun shop while there. I just have to check the hunting schedule (land lease) with my cousin for a non-Sunday.
I expect to be heading back toward Branford/New Haven on Friday the 14th.
Limited time offer... call before midnight tonight!

I've got all manner of .308 ammo since I reload that caliber and many others. Anyone shoot a 6.5x55mm among your Mac haters? Just loaded up some 100 grain Sierra "Varminters" and 160 grain Sierra "Pro-Hunters".

Awesome. What is your cell, again?

I have work Mon-Fri 8:30 - 5:30, and a company party Friday night. Are you free Saturday or Sunday (pending the land of course)?

Saturday's weather is looking better than Sunday, so that would probably be ideal. I think I was going to try your reloads, so this could work out well for other reasons as well..

The iMac owner doesn't have anything but a pellet gun, haha. Some 1000ft/s Walmart special that's quite old, but works. The idea to shoot the thing came from me, but I don't really know anybody else. I could ask around to a few gun-owning friends, but for now it's just me + the computer owner.

I also need to make sure he is getting his replacement this week. Can't shoot it too soon! =P

Check your PM inbox...

...I'm getting close to aborting my trip to Branford due to your lack of communication.
Figure Saturday the 15th is a no go.

Hey dude - sorry, haven't had any time to even sign in until now. A friend of mine lost his kid on Friday... definitely more important to be around with him and his wife than to shoot the iMac.

F*****g senseless murderer. ugh.
