    Ok, maybe the title is a little misleading. Should be shooting AT food - frameless style!

    Currently, I am on a business trip and was looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. So sort of a exploratory mooch to see if I need to bring my limb saw back with me on the next trip, I found a local state park.

    Lots of trees and lots of unpopulated areas through out the park because everyone was down at the river swimming trying to cool off. As I meandered my way through the picnic areas looking for targets to shoot with my trusty frameless 1632 rig, I came across a table where someone left behind some crackers. Thinking, wow these will make awesome targets and totally expected the cracker to go poof when I hit it.

    So set up the cracker in the gap of the table, backed off about 8 or 10 yards and thinking that this is the first of my mooching trick shots. A couple shots later, I was sure that I had hit it, but the cracker was still there. Took a closer look and found a clean hole right through it.

    Funny, so give up on using those rubber and leather spinners. Just buy a box of crackers and have fun!

    Joe, these are California crackers. They don't taste like east coast crackers!

    LOL, I was happy that this crowded park had such a large area away from people and mostly in shade. It's pretty hot here in the middle of California.

    This park is a fork paradise. Might bring the limb saw back with me on the next visit. Only negative is that it is 95% all white oak. White oak is nice, but easy to find about anywhere. Don't know that I want to haul it home with me.
