If I'm not hunting, I plink on my humble little backyard range (still a project in progress!)

Pic from shooting bench:

Targets are at 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 yards. There is about 6 miles of bush behind targets, so no worries there!

Each target has a "spinner" attached - 3/8" @ 10 yrds up to 1-1/8" @ 50 yrds. Here is the 40 yard spinner (7/8"):

And finally, my high-tech shooting bench!:

Now that I have the basics figured out, I can start fabricating a more permanent, refined set up out of metal - if I can put the rifle down long enough!

That's a really nice place to shoot...I love pine trees and am now quite jealous of you. :)

Sholo, thats a fabulous backyard range you have. My boys and I can only dream of one.

We can't shoot at our backard so we do most of our shooting in our basement (that is if the Mom/Wife is not around).

Here's a video of what we shoot at...

Target

That's an awesome back yard range you have there sholo. A very nice spot to shoot for sure! :)

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:

Those pellet traps are awesome Gippeto. Nicely done! I may just "borrow" your target clamp idea. :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.

I've had the same idea mes4u2c. In fact today I think I'll head out to my local marsh to destroy a few.

I made this years ago when I was taking a welding course. They said to keep the project simple. I thought this was simple enough.I tested it with my 22LR a few years back and it held up fine but now I just use it for my air guns.

Got bored of shooting at the pellet trap and also target paper so I decided to make it a little more of a challenge and figured Q-tips would work. They are hard to shoot at 30 yards . Usually 3 shots would do it from my Theoben Crusader 22 cal plus I had a little bit of a cross wind. I would just nick either side and the third one down the center. A few were single shots and the Q-Tip would vanish.

My friend didn't think that is was very accurate if I had to take 3 shots. The way I looked at it, I would miss by the thickness of the Q-Tip either side, to me all three shots are kill shots if I was hunting. Then he thought is was pretty good shooting and said he could shoot just as good.

I let him shoot for a bit , Q-tips were safe but I need more pellets now and a new back stop board..

You are doing well with that beautiful (magnum) springer, nitris. People that have never shot one would think it's just another pellet gun. I found that if I haven't touched mine for a while, it's like learning to shoot it from scratch again. :cry:
