    But are there any hills in Arkansas that aren't all rock, which could send bullets flying everywhere? Of course, that could add a little "spice" to the outing. :D

    tuff to find ANY hill here in AR without any rock in it..I was thinking maybe a pond with high banks to act as backstop and the only ponds I know with banks high enough would mean shooting towards a major roadway...I am lucky enough to walk out my door and do some target shooting..but I do not have a berm or any kind of solid(loose term here) bullet catcher..I am on a hillside and shoot down hill..there is probably 2 miles of woods to the nearest house and that is across the holler, over the hill and on tha backside so I have no fear at all of where my bullets go..I figure the probably travel into the woods a few feet or so and embed themselves into a tree..it saves me a 1/4 tanks of gas to town and a range fee..

    If the hill is 150 to 200 yards away, I think that would reduce the risk to acceptable levels, would it not? The likelihood of a bullet changing direction completely and gaining a trajectory back to the origin seems really slim.

    The other benefit of doing this on national forest land is that no private land owner has to worry about liability.

    Spice, right, in the sense of "being peppered".. :o

    Update!

    I think I may have found a place in Huntsville where we can shoot. The Huntsville PD has a place where they train, big berm and tables, and I will call the chief on monday and see if we can shoot some pumpkins..of course we will have to clean up afterwards but with all uf us chipping in, it shouldnt take long..will post more info here when I get it..(this may be a doable event this next weekend, or when ever y'all decide, but don't wait too long as the pumpkins may go into hiding!)

    Do we have a supply of pumpkins? The place that USE to have them out on 412 didnt do pumpkins this year..and with Thanksgiving commin on, am sure folks will hord the fruit!

    while I was typing this out, the HSV Chief called..am afraid it would be a no go for using the range. It belongs to the City and there is liability issues and the mayor would have to approve it plus we would need the HSV PDFA instructor, who would be the SRO, be there in attendance so the shoot would have to be on HIS schedule..so in a nut shell, looks like we don't get to use that berm..sorry guys. Back to the ole planning board

    Looks like there will not be a public pumpkin shoot this year. Sorry to ... uh... well actually nobody since there was only me and Lewall anyway.
