Blowing up a Pumpkin

I blew up a pumpkin!

That is something I've been wanting to say for quite awhile now and finally I can.

We took a pumpkin

1lb of Shockwave

and a Ruger rifle up to Tower Camp and I shot the pumpkin.

Which set off an explosion even better than I'd imagined.

It decimated that pumpkin and left nothing but pumpkin goo.

The largest piece we found was only about an inch in diameter and it was WAY on the other side of the field from where the explosion took place.

The Shockwave container claims you need to be at least 100 feet away from your target and it was easy to see why.

Blowing up fruit has become my new hobby. I think watermelons are next.
