Ever had a clunker that had so many problems you just wanted to shoot it? This guy did! A rich guy with more money than you and I probably have donated his Porsche 911 to the Massachusetts’ Commonwealth Second Amendment gun club to use for target practice. The $100,000 Porsche had engine and cooling issues that would cost the owner more than $16,130 to fix, so instead of forking out the cash (and probably even more down the line after it breaks down again) he let 140 of the gun club members shoot more than 10,000 rounds at it. Video game animator John Beauchemin was at the shoot out and took the images below, he said of the Porsche killing mayhem, ‘The car was 100 yards from the line, and we had lots of new and inexperienced shooters and people using pistols…We were accurate enough to shoot the spokes out of the wheels pretty quickly when someone suggested it. I managed to put a few rifled 12ga slugs into her myself – I just wanted to destroy something beautiful”
While I like shooting random things at the range, like watermelons and zombies targets, personally I would have just dumped the Porsche on Craigslist and used the cash for more guns and ammo.
AB.com reader lepeu63, who was at the event, gave us a little more insight into the Commonwealth Second Amendment. Not only did they have a blast at the range, they were able to raise $4,000 for their organization!
Comm 2A is a non-profit foundation dedicated to raising awareness of 2nd Amendment rights in MA – a state where law abiding gun owners face many, many challenges in exercising those rights. Because of the owner’s generosity, they were able to raise more than $4,000 for the organization – and shooting the thing up was a blast (yes, I was there).
Also, we found a video of the event. Those guys had some serious firepower.
