Pro Shooter Turns A Pumpkin Into A Jack-O’-Lantern… With A Gun

If carving a pumpkin with a bunch of sharp knives isn’t quite dangerous enough for you, here’s another option for making a jack-o’-lantern: shoot the thing

Pro shooter Kirsten Joy Weiss, who performs trick shots such as shooting the lead tip off a pencil,  shows how to use a rifle to make a jack-o’-lantern. 

Or, as she calls it, a “gun-o-lantern.”  

“Now remember, pumpkins are volatile creatures (really, they are! You’ll see why once you shoot one),” she writes on her website. ”They don’t cooperate perfectly, but if you set perfection aside and simply shoot, you’ll love your results.”

Check it out in the clip above. 

No matter how you carve your pumpkin, keep basic safety tips in mind. The Consumer Products Safety Agency says more than half of the 4,400 Halloween-related injuries every year come from attempts at making jack-o’-lanterns
