Tie frozen strawberries to fishing line and shoot to your heart's content...they blow up too AND look like a bloddy mess. Yea a bit crazy, but if you salvage the carnage and the pieces of ice cubes, throw in some yogurt and you have a shooter's parfait! delicious treat for the range! 8)

If you lay the string across your ice cubes and sprinkle them with salt the cubes will melt and refreeze to the string. Then string up the ice cubes and let the fun begin.

I plan to fill some ping pong balls with cherry slushy syrup and set them up on golf tees in the backyard :twisted:

I'll have to take some pics and post them.

oh, I shoot all my guns in the yard. Pellet to 45-70. No cannons, I don't have one. Yet. I don't shoot anything live unless it causes problems. Other wise, paper, tins, etc. has to be easy to clean up and not a problem for livestock.

I found some very tough plastic game pieces at a garage sale. They seem to be able to take a lot of punishment from sub-PAL guns. The game was called "Souris Souris" (Mouse Mouse). I've been using them for over a year and only one broke so far.

Garage sales late in the day are better than the Dollar store. People give stuff away, and some of it should just say "Please shoot this" on it! :mrgreen:

Great time of the year to shoot dandylions. Shooting and clipping off the flowers. Feels good to get those little suckers.

Greetings. First post..so I thought I would start here. Great post and ideas. I love the dollar store...I use clothes pegs stapled to a wood beam (covered with 1/2 foam backing to absorb the misses) and then clip anything I want inthem...cards, straws and one of my favs is poker chips (the pellets and bbs go right through...good instant feedback). I have several beams in differen shapes (oval, curved) and a circular one that I have on a post that I can spin. I now blow up ballons to about an inch in dia and clips these in. You can put just about anything in them. I now actually try and hit the peg at the base and blows it off the wood...works well.

No that my kids are older and interested in shooting, it is amazing how quickly they want to shoot their once beloved toys....especially anything that sort of blows up or you can put a hole in (models, army guys, and my all time fav is the pink barbie car!

I will have to try some of the other ideas...ice cubes, chalk.
Thanks
Cheers

I don't shoot in my yard, because my neighbors are too anal! But I do shoot from my living room (where they can't see me) into the yard! :D :D

Was up north this weekend to do some target shooting, noticed the bullrushes were up in the pond. Great to shoot at, they explode when you hit them and fly all over the place.

A fellow..j.krug...posted a pellet trap he had made, a modified snail trap which was quite nicely done. This motivated me to get off me arse :wink: and practice my limited welding skills a bit. These turned out pretty good IMO...made from 3/16" steel plate and heavy "auger" tube, they have been tested with .22 LR @ 20yards with complete success...spent lead simply drops out the back...need to visit the dollarama for a cookie sheet or two and round up a couple milk crates to set them on. Nice and portable. :D

Will still take them off the truck before using them :wink:
