How to safely deflate a widowmaker

30 yards, we each got 4 shots. Winchester .22 under-seat varmint gun. Pretty sure the first one did it, but the holes closed up around the 'wound'. After a couple of hits I depressed the schrader valve and some air was still coming out. I had expected someting more spectacular, but it did the job. And yes, we scattered the hens first.

Not too bad. You got 5 in the ten ring. I was talking with a retired mechanic at church today and he said when he would fill the w/m's he would drop the lift down on top and then put the air to 'em.I guess they didn't have a cage for such things. Someday i'll be able to safely deflate mine also.HeeHee.

I like your style, Gary. I've achieved similar results with a 1/8" drill bit into the carcass. And I've been to Gary's place and you should see the view he has of the sound. Stu

Fun way to deflate. IT looks like one person had a real good grouping.

Aw man... Why'd you go and ruin a perfectly good tire? But hey, 7 out of 8 were in the target. Well, I guess they were all in since they hit the tire and not the rim.

I too like your back yard.

Looks like fun.

Although, a bit pricey with the price of .22LR shells around here (when you can find them) Its getting to where its cheaper to shoot a larger gun.

The shells were in the ashtray of my '92 when I bought it about five years ago. I don't buy a lot of new 'store bought' stuff. The rifle, yes Ray a 62 A was offered by a neighbor for fixing some cabinet doors! Tomorrow I'm gonna roll the tire and wheel down the brushy ravine behind it. I'll never see it again. I was unloading a set of truck tires once and one got away from me down the ravine. I offered my kids 25.00 if they could find it. Try as they might, nobody ever found it. Even a younger employee went down after lunch determined to get some beer money and he came back empty handed. We have ten acres on the side of Mt. Pickett. The first five cost 18 grand back in the 70's. The other five, well not quite so good of a deal.

I also have a 62A Gary. I learned to shoot with it when I a very little guy.
And it had been in the family a long time then. It's still the most accurate
Fire arm in the arsenal.

And ya changed yer Avatar. Took a bit to recognize ya.

Never underestimate how far those tires can roll. I'd bet the $25 right now that the wheel is not on your property at all. I watched my high school buddy pic up a very similar truck tire and launch it off the side of a mountain once. We begged him not to do it because there were houses below in the valley. Before we could stop him, he grabbed a big truck wheel like that and just launched it off the mountain. We stood there in absolute amazement as that thing literally knocked down everything in its path. It literally crushed 4-5 inch trees, fences, etc. It went all the way to the bottom of the mountain, bounced across somebody's yard and driveway, and went seemingly 30 or 40 yards up the other side. It would have killed anybody or anything in its path, and it would have gone completely through that house if it hadn't missed it. We were mortified.

No snow? No hat and gloves? No wind blowing 60mph to compensate for while shooting? I didnt think the great north west was the banana belt this time of year. On a side note, we had a driver do a poor pre trip inspection one morning. They had repaired a flat tire outside and forgot to tighten the lug nuts on a kenworth t800 daycab. He made it about ten miles before both wheels parted company with the drive axle. The axle fell on the road and shaved the drum and backing plate down a bit. He wouldnt have know he lost them but with the open diff it rolled to a stop because it wouldnt send power to the other wheels without locking in the diffs. One wheel and tire was found, the other was never seen again. Thank God it was early and there was no traffic on the road. And dont worry, he has since retired but not until he laid one over on its side!

Back in the early 80's I drove over the road and had my spare off the trailer pass me on the shoulder at about 40 mph. It hit the guardrail and fell over thankfully. It was tough to get back in the carrier too. No doubt some serious damage coild have occurred. As long as everything is good downhill, have fun!
