Exploding Rifle Targets – Slow Motion Video – FedLine Cisco Router

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Did you see the video where I destroyed the FedLine Cisco Router with the Exploding Rifle Targets?

Well, a few folks asked if I could slow down the explosion part of the video.  So, after figuring out the process, we got it done.

Here’s the slow motion clip of the explosion.

You can bet there will be more to come!

Gun Rights, Gun Safety and Responsible Gun Owners

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Here’s a great quote I recently came across.  It’s a great reminder that we must fully defend our RIGHT to own and bear arms and reject the arguments of those who claim that guns aren’t safe:

“There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period.”

—Ted Nugent

Stay safe, stay vigilant.

Independence Day Fun: Exploding Rifle Targets

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

We had a Cisco network router we needed to destroy so we acquired some Exploding Rifle Targets and went to the range.  This is too much fun….

Shot with a 30-06 using a one pound container of the Star Targets.

Enjoy…

Remote Control Squirrel Shooting Machine

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

OK, this is actually a cool piece of RC technology. This is a fully automatic airsoft rifle, with a laser designator, hooked up to be radio controlled. Nothing like sitting on the front porch with a beer, and shooting squirrels, kittens and any girl scouts that happen along. (If you don’t have too many beers, you might be able to refrain from shooting the girl scouts and the kittens…)

30 Days of Squirrel Shooting Left

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

It’s the first week in June, and that means there are only about 30 days of good squirrel shooting left, unless it stays cool and damp. While you can find pockets of squirrels to shoot, all the way up until the end of July in some places, the good shooting is usually done by the first or second week in July.

So, since I haven’t been out shooting this year, and feel like a fake squirrel shooter, could some of you guys send me some squirrel shooting stories and videos please? Please send them to ss@shootingsquirrels.com. Thanks,

Squirrels Are Up in the West

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

I just got back from a trip through Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California. As I was driving, I saw squirrels up in Oregon from North Powder to the Border of Idaho, and then all through Idaho, parts of Utah and again in California. There were also hunters out shooting squirrels, which made me jealous, since I was locked in the car for 3000 miles with a 6 year old, a 9 year old and my wife…. Can you say Yeee Hawww?

We Need A Few Good Squirrel Hunters

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

I’m running a little experiment on Digg to see if we can pick up some new members in the squirrel hunting forum. While you’re on the site, can you click this link and give shootingsquirrels.com a thumbs up on Digg?

If we all give it a thumbs up, then when new hunters come to read the site, including this post, they might wander over to the forums and give us some new blood….

Over 800,000 Squirrel Video Views

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

I was looking at the squirrel shooting videos that I have on Youtube tonight, and decided to see how many video views we’ve had since the first squirrel videos went up. According to the viewing records, our squirrel shooting videos have been watched over 800,000 times in the last 2 years.

We get almost 1,000,000 page views a year on shootingsquirrels.com, it kind of makes me wonder how many people we’ve sent to other Youtube squirrel videos from this site, since we post quite a few from other people too. You’re probably wondering why I’m wondering this…. Or Not.

Well, the reason is because I’m looking for a new title for myself, like “Squirrel Video King” or the “Squirrel Splatter King” or just “That Weird Ass Guy Who Films Dead Squirrels”…

What do you guys think? (Or should I just start taking my Meds again and forget about it?)

ShootingSquirrels.com Picks Up New Sponsor

Friday, November 27th, 2009

The North American Hunter magazine is now offering shooters on ShootingSquirrels.com the chance to Test Free Hunting Gear…And Keep It!. So, if you are interested in getting a free issue of North American Hunter, which is a magazine that fosters an appreciation of the outdoor heritage and the relationship between hunting and conservation, as well as provides how-to editorials on big game hunting, small game hunting, upland bird hunting and waterfowl hunting, as well as giving you the chance to test hunting gear, then check them out. Also, if you join their hunt club testing group, you get free gear to evaluate and keep. They’ve given away more than $3,000,000 worth of outdoor and hunting gear this way, and with the cheap crowd we have around here, that should work out perfectly… LOL

Dead Squirrels Make Me Happy!

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

I was driving by one of the parks in town today and heard a crunch. Since I wasn’t paying any attention to what the heck was going on around me, it startled me. Which made me realize that I was daydreaming and could have run over 3 handycapped kids and a church lady without even knowing it. BUT, lucky for me, when I looked in my rear view mirror, what I saw was a squirrel trouting on the street behind me.

Those of us who shoot squirrels on a regular basis know that if you get a perfect head shot, and take out the brain, (what little there is), the autonomic reflexes in the squirrel make it flop all over the place, and we call that trouting. It looks like a Marlin tail walking across the bay. LOL

So, obviously I’m so good that even when I’m not paying attention, I can get a brain shot on a squirrel with my truck. Dang I’m good! They don’t call me Squirrel Sniper for nothing… (OK, Yea, I named myself Squirrel Sniper… So What.)
