    I just wish that all the folks that do this would do it on their own property.

    They are a mess to clean up afterwards.

    Not to mention that its considered hazardous waste because of the coating on the CRT screen and the materials used in circuit boards.

    But it sure is fun to do!

    :D

    I seriously considered doing this to my old 486. It would have been so much fun. Instead, I just threw it in the dumpster.

    Just as a note ... the computer I'm currently using is a crappy notebook that I hate visciously (think "printer scene" in the movie "Office Space").

    Once I get around to fixing my linux computer, this notebook becomes a target.

    PC LOAD LETTER?!?! :D

    EPA regs be damned, blasting a PC is downright cathartic.

    I work in computers, so i regularly take old harddrives out and put them out to pasture with 12 gauge slugs.

    Then we hang them up at work :)

    Did you notice how many times you heard gunshots without seeing a bullet strike ANYWHERE? If every shot you hear on the video is actually directed at the PC, someone out there can't hit a bull in the arse with a bass fiddle.

    I sent a 30-06 thru a printer last year. Great fun!

    I have a defunct VCR that is going to suffer the same fate soon.

    If only I had a place where I could shoot my old junk, there would be a supply to last me a good while! And I would make sure to pick up my trash too. :D

    The guy that runs the (indoor) range I go to wont let me shoot things that piss me off. I'm gonna have to get me a place in the sticks again just so I can.

    I did put a bullet into a dodge aspen once (i think it was the aspen, might have been the K car).

    Never shot any computer parts before.

    "I work in computers, so i regularly take old harddrives out and put them out to pasture with 12 gauge slugs."

    I worked for Intel for a short time, and did the same thing with a 3 1/2 floppy drive. Displayed it proudly on my cube. Put a nice big hole in it too, with my Dad's .45-70 :D

    Don't forget the new cover sheets on your TPS reports... you got the memo right?

    I dream of the day I am Match Director for an IPSC style event where all the targets are cell phones and pagers.

    I've been waiting for over five minutes and it still didnt start, do you have to do anything to get it going, or is it just because I'm using AO-hell?
