Shooting Innocent Action Figures
Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted here! I’m changing that right now.
I’ve been going through some boxes of stuff and junk in my room, and inside are action figures that I don’t even play with any more. Old ones that I never really liked. Generic and Star Wars Prequel toys (some I actually like so I kept them). Instead of being boring and throwing them in the trash I’ve been shooting them with a pellet gun we got recently! The gun is nothing fancy; it’s a Hornet somethin-or-other from Walmart, but we mounted my dad’s nice Pentax 3×9 rifle scope on top.
So on to the shooting.
Oh, and keep in mind everything I shoot is about 27-28 yards off.
It took me a couple action figures to realize that I should probably take pictures of them and make a new post on my blog. The first two unfortunate victims were Mace Windu and Count Dooku. One shot each and they literally exploded into many pieces. I still can’t find Windu’s top half…
The next target was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. I never watched the show so I don’t know which one he was. He had a purple headband so…..there you go. The purple turtle. One shot to the neck and his head popped right off.
Next and most recently on the hitlist is some generic GI-Joe-like action dude. This one was well made because it took THREE shots before he fell apart. No, scratch that, I have reason to believe I hit him in the head twice which left little scars. It took three body shots to do any damage.
One more shot to the upper chest and he’s history.
When we’re able to find a battery for dad’s video camera then I want to set that up and capture the explosions.
