There I was at the range and then... PUMPKIN ATTACK!
Pics below! I gave them what for!
The little ones with faces got it with a Davey Crickett .22 rifle.
The bigger one took heat from a .357 magnum Taurus M66 revolver.
All shots were made at just over 50 yards - they were on the berm behind the 50 yard target line. Yeah, it took a few shoots to zero in at that range with the .357 magnum revolver but it did the job.

The rest of the pics.

And NOPE, there's ABSOLUTELY NO POINT to this thread except that shooting is fun and shooting silly stuff is even funner. Yep, that's a word.

Iff'n ya cut a small plug out of the top, fill the condemned pumpkin with water, stick the plug back in, and commence with the execution, it will be a much more entertaining event, especially if the sentence is carried out with a rifle in the .25-.30 caliber range.

Jeeze. At first, I thought somebody had come out with a computer named Pumpkin.

To the OP: Looks like you had a good time, but pumpkins are a bit too expensive for me to shoot. :) I stick with onions.

The smaller ones are the size of baseballs (50cents or so) and the 'bigger' one is about the size of a cantalope ($3). I splurged a little. :)
I usually get a lot of pears from the back yard, too, but this year there weren't many at all. :o

Ahem, my local club's (http://www.redbrush.org/) annual pumpkin shoot. Look under photos, long gun and scroll way down. The sub guns go first, then the belt feds, then the flame thrower finishes off the survivors.

I love the day after Halloween and I hate pumpkins.
