MY EARLIER MENTION OF Osama bin Laden targets produced this email (with photos) from readers Peyton and Debbie Randolph:

We’ve got one on our garage wall!

At the Protest Warrior get-together in January, here in Austin, one of the activities was visiting a local outdoor range. We did OK, not our best. The hits are at 7 meters with her Browning Hi-Power 9mm and my HK Mark 23 .45, also pictured.

I like the photos. And, you know, when I posted the link this morning, I thought: “Yeah, I think the Osama target is cool, but will any InstaPundit readers care about something like this?”

I should have known better than to worry . . . .

UPDATE: A veritable army of readers has emailed to complain about the poor firearms safety demonstrated in this photo (fingers should be on triggers only to shoot!). Well, yes, but I’m prepared to make an exception for a photo-op like this one, where the firearms appear to be pointed safely. But don’t try this at home kids — or on the range!
