    Animal silhouettes to shoot over with an airsoft gun :)

  4. Bob Says:

    Nice idea, but bzzzzzzt.

    Silhouttes oughta be metal so they produce a satisfying “PLINK” when hit. Good to put em on pivots too so they go “PLINK … phwet, phwet, phwet, phwet” as they spin.

    I’m throwing my hat in the ring for Christmas ornaments.
    Or big toothpicks.

  8. Bob Says:

    You’re GOOD Kari! (Yes, we already knew that.) Lesee now, when you win do you get your hat back?

    One of those answers is correct.

  9. Shann Says:

    So…ummm…how about Christmas ornaments. So the real question is what kind of ornaments. How about little sailboats?

  10. Bob Says:

    Well Shannon, most of the intended recipients don’t have quite the same entusiasm for boating that I have … and live in areas where sailing at Christmas time can happen only on boats with runners. Nice idea, but I’ll stay with something a little closer to “traditional.”

    Thanks for stopping by.
