Today. I served an eviction notice to some beavers that took up residence in one of our ponds. They built a lodge, plugged up drain pipe and were causing water to go over the dam. 2lbs of tannerite placed with a large rock on top took care of the problem.View attachment 203486
Where did the rock land... :D

At Wilshire gun this morning I emptied some store bought brass 7.62x39. And found me a starting point for the 450 bushmaster.

Went this morning and fired the other 50 rounds out of the 100 round box through the GP-100......for some reason I wasn't hitting the 6" gong all that well this morning but I tore up the 8" gong.

Oh, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the non-reloader that walked away and left what appear to be 192 pcs. of once fired 45 ACP brass on the ground......Thank You !

Any idea on weight of the rock?

I have a friend with a similar problem, and they're not exactly sure what to do. They don't want to just injure the critters.

Thanks. :drunk2:

It was probably 20lbs or better. You can also direct the blast by wrapping many layers of duct or gorilla tape around the entire container and then take a knife or razor blade and cut a small square of the tape only from the bottom or side. It creates a weak spot and the force of the explosion will travel that direction

Lately I've been enjoying shooting my Ruger GP-100 but felt like that I'd been neglecting my 1911's so this morning I grabbed my Ruger SR1911 and headed to the range to see if I could wear out the 25 yd. gongs.......don't know what it is but there's just something about that SR1911, it always seems to make me look like I can shoot better than I actually do.

Even though I took 100 rounds of my 230 gr. hardball ammo in order to conserve ammo / components I promised myself that I'd only fire 50 rounds but the SR1911 was shooting like a laser this morning and I just couldn't make myself stop shooting till I'd exhausted all 100 rounds. :)

I had a good time and also came away with 51 more pieces of brass than I arrived with.......I really love them folks that don't reload.

[email protected] Professor I painted the three gongs I was firing at for you right before I left......you owe me one. :)
