Many pics to come, so please hold off posting replies until I get them all there.

Our microwave recently died, and we replaced it with a newer model.

And then, we decided to give the old dead microwave a fitting send-off to Home Appliance Valhalla.

So...............

And now, the entree......Three inch magnum 00 Bucktshot by Sellier and Bellot which will be heated rapidly to perfection through 18 inches of high quality steel before finishing up perforating into plastic, glass and wiring.

But before the entree can actually be cooked, an appetizer served up by my lovely and talented wife. Her method of preparation is a Springfield 1911 in .45.

First, lightly apply 230 grain roundball.......One in the glass door, one in the control panel.

After the intial mixing, toss liberal handfuls of .45 slugs into the dish.

After the appetizer of .45 has settled it is time to cleanse the palate and dig into the entree with gusto.....nothing is as satisfying as a blast of 00 Buckshot....and yes, that werid dark brown thingy in the in the middle of the group is the wadding from the shotshell.....Think of it as dietary fiber......About 10 yards on the shot.

And for dessert, a double blast of BB goose shot followed up with some steel #6s left over from duck season.

And of course, presentation means everything.

We polished off the final bits by shooting more .45 from one side through to the other side of the microwave.

As you can see, the bullet on the right side popped through the skin of the microwave, but failed to completely exit.

The bullet on the left side was one I found just sitting atop one of the support posts the microwave had been sitting on. I picked it up and set it down next to the other just for comparison's sake.

Finis......

Sir - I commend you for total dedication to the job in hand!! :D Ably assisted by your spouse, which makes it all the much better.

I just hope NALPACM does not get to hear of this .... (North American League for Protection Against Cruelty to Microwaves''!):p :D

I trust also, a burial with honors will complete the process!;)

Looks like you hit the popcorn button with the .45...good shot :)

Any and all damage to the control panel was the work of my wife.

It was the control panel that fritzed out on the durn thing, so she had a special cold, stoney place in her cute little heart for it.........

Getting the control panel replaced would have cost, parts and labor, about $325.

Our new one cost slightly less than that after sales tax was figured in.

Oh well.......that did make for a good target.

When I saw the pic of the OO Buck round in the microwave, my hopes sky rocketed.

Oh well...

TOO FUNNY!!!! LOL,

Hope to see you and your bride on "THE COOKING NETWORK".

I can see it now Hillbilly, his bride and a special "anti" guest begin cooking . Something goes wrong, Hillbilly and wife pull out shotgun and 45 , blasting
that possum souffle' to smithereens, ( of course after donning the proper protective glasses and ear plugs)." Anti "exits stage left, screaming as the audience laughs and cheers.
