Anyone own the movable target pellet trap at Princess Auto for $99. I went to buy it but did not come home with one as it takes six batteries. If you own one what you thing of it? Worth $99. or you get sick of it quickly? CHEERS!

That's my thinking also about not lasting. But I can live with only sub 500. That's mostly all I shoot in the house anyways. I am not a big speed guy in any weapon I shoot. LOL

Hey wheeliehd. I have a black rectangle box target with moving targets. Had it for about a year. Only used sub 500 airguns on it. Its been pretty durable but likes batteries. However because it takes so many batteries, i just use cheap batteries. It is fun to shoot but I would want to have other targets to shoot at . It does get old if thats the only targets you have to shoot at. I find there nockdown targets more entertaining. .... 10ring

Good to know. Thank you for that. Yes I love my knock down ducks. I have tons of indoor targets. I have an old record player and thinking of something to put on it to shoot as it turns strait towards me.

Easy enough to rig a DC power source. Just total the battery volt output and match the amperage. I'm sure everyone have suitable spare dc power supplies lying around and if you don't I can probably send you one.

Knockdown targets are rather satisfying. Princess auto have a few on sale many times during the year for under $15.00.

hey w. I was thinking about using an old record player at one time too . and also rigging targets up some how to one of those cheap battery operated train sets . haven,t got around to it yet. but if you do first post some pics and let us know. oh I was going to try pendulum targets too . theres a you tube video on pendulum one. good luck. p.s those targets go on for half price sometimes at princess auto.. I have the duck one and find it pretty good.
