Default History Channel's Lock n Load (CARBOY KILLERS)

I was just wondering if anyone else out there watched the Lock and Load episode where they were shooting pistols at poor helpless (BEERLESS) carboys??? I lost count on how many they broke...

Now I know shooting guns is VERY fun and all, I have one myself....but couldn't they have picked something else? Instead of breaking those they could have sent them to me!!!

They were shooting up scratched and infected old carboys. Good way to punish them for infecting your batch of beer.

At least that's how I viewed it...

i seen that episode and was wondering why he was shooting carboys too, since normally he shoots watermelons i'm guessing they were out at the local grocery when filming began for the episode.

The loss of each glass carboy is a brewers hospital visit that will never be.

That is a good thing.
