Empty shotgun shells. Shoot the spent primers out. Move them back and shoot them at 30 meters.
Stand them up like 5 pin bowling pins. Score like bowling. 3 shots. Strike, spare, same scoring as bowling.
If hit slightly on the side, they spin and knock down the other shells. Play with the spacing to make it as easy or difficult as you want.

For paper targets, I use an orange bingo dauber. Costs about $1.25 at the dollar store. 500 sheets of paper for about $5 and you are set for as many paper targets as you can shoot. The daubers make a round dot about 3/4" in diameter. Same as the stick-on targ-dots.

Once the snow flies, those little tufts of snow on the evergreen boughs provide a limitless supply of reactive targets.

I also collect crabapples from my neighbour's tree. They explode nicely when hit, even with a non-pal gun. When frozen, they explode that much better. Then the squirrels and birds fight over the pieces. Great fun to watch. The squirrels fight with each other while the birds just carry off the food. Hilarious.

Here's my backyard range.
The box on the left is an old sheet metal air duct.
It's surprising how some pellets blow right through both sides.

The stand on the left is a tomato plant stand with a cow bell at the top.
It makes a nice ring when you hit it.

I can't "spin" my spinner targets but they do ring pretty well.

check out you tube under homemade airgun targets. I made a couple good knockdown ones from there. using a board ; hinges ; coat hanger and some string. shoot them down; pull the string and they pop back up. cheap ; fun and pretty simple to make.
