Is it the original "Day of the Jackal" movie where he tests the gun by shooting up a melon?

mat says:

uh-huh - that's what I was thinking when I set this up. In the film, he uses a high-powerd rifle with dumdum slugs, we were using a low-powered air rifle with hollow point pellets. not quite as effective, as the photos show. :)

we'd put about twenty pellets through it by that point, and were getting bored of the lack of big explosions.. :)

Euphro - continuous shooting mode, guesswork, careful timing, luck. you should have seen how many shots I didn't get.
