Default Whats the strangest thing you have shot accidentally?

Whats the strangest thing you have shot accidentally?

I have a 20yard range in the basement. My accidental shot was when I pulled back on by bow and it shot off (bad release which now I have a new one). It went through an electric frying pan and a canning pot. I still have the arrow shoots fine.

I had a complete pass through on the heating duct in my basement.

The metal support pole in the middle of the basement also makes a really neat and loud bell sound when hit with target arrow.

Humm lets see what else??

I got a few hole in the dry wall. and arrows don't hold up well when they hit concrete walls. Oh and I almost.....I got a complete pass through on the back wall of my pole barn too.

What can I say.....when it comes to a hinge release I was a slow learner.

Nothing weird but I shoot in the basement also, main house to an addition through a doorway wide hole. Screwing arround with a recurve I hit left of the doorway and the arrow coming back FAST! Hit sideways () on the hot water tank then under my feet. You think you can move fast enough to avoid harm, but sometimes sheit happens too fast!
And then there was the time the ramrod broke off down the barrell... and I figured a few grains under the nipple would push it out.....
Still haven't found the brass jag and the wife has'nt asked where that comforter went.

Mr. Howlindawgs put an arrow into the gas tank of a '68 Plymouth Fury. You should have seen me racing around looking for containers There's still an arrow sticking out of the oil pan too, LOL

Default Basement door

I used to have a walkout basement with a sliding thermopane door. It was a cold and windy day, so I thought I would stand in the basement and shoot out the doorway to my practice bales. Had a nature call and went upstairs to use the bathroom. Came back down to shoot a couple more shots. On my first shot, my only thought was.....I don't remember the target being so blurry. When the shot broke, there was a loud crack. Followed by several minutes of crackling while the tempered glass slowly cracked through the whole window. Forgot I had shut the door before going upstairs. That was a $500 shot. On the bright side, it was a perfect bullet hole and the arrow made it 2/3 of the way to the target and was still in perfect shape.
