Where did you get the pin set up (is it rated for 22 rim fire?) or did you make it and what shot timer are you using?

Here's the first iteration...I added a angled backstop and pin targets...different target shapes can easily be installed by pulling the spring clips on the pivot rod...I plan on making another one with heavier steel to handle .22's.

I use a smartphone app shot timer.

Thanks and you should sell those pin deals.
That is the app I have as well. hard part is outdoors seeing the screen. I will soon be investing in a purpose built shot timer.

Yeah I would pay $100 for a setup like that!

I tried an electronic shot timer...the Pocket Pro II. I bought it with the idea its adjustable sensitivity setting would make it useable with pellet guns...but even on its most sensitive setting it was not reliable in picking up pellet gun shots. Now I have two timers for using with powderburners :x

I do all my pellet gun shooting indoors and have had no trouble with the app or being able to read the screen

The Pocket Pro II is the one I narrowed down for myself and now I have joined a range and soon to have some PB's to shoot I will get it. good to know it doesn't work with outdoor pellet shooting. Would you look to sell yours? Barter , trade?

I will try to app again when I am at the farm with the outdoor pellet timing.

That phone app may not work well on all cell phones...It worked well on my Motorola Razr Maxx but not when I upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy 5...so I had to revive the Razr just to run the timer app.

I'm gonna check with the company to see if they could take it back and make it more sensitive....I'm thinking if they knew there was another market (airguns) that could use the product they just might do it.

yes there should be one made for air gunners for sure.
Do we have any microelectronic wizards here?

Just going back to the OP:
I got this from a Forum member a few years ago and have never even used it! Initially I thought it might be an original but now I think it's really just a reproduction. So maybe it needs to make it's debut at a GTAC range night some Monday. Before I put it into service I should copy the targets because the original pad of targets only has about 20 or so and I know those wont last long once the shooting starts!

Murray, You'll have to postpone plans to "ring my bell" by at least one week. :lol: :lol:
This Monday I'm doing my hunter education course and won't be at the range.!!
