Post subject:  Any silhouette shooters here?

I recently bought a 1/10th scale set and let me say that it isn't easy, since you'd be shooting standing, offhand, unsupported at tiny targets. But once you get the hang of it, it's very rewarding.
I wonder why this sport doesn't seem so popular in Canada, or at least on this forum.
If anyone regularly shoots airgun silhouette here in Ontario, I'd love to hear from you and hopefuly join the fun.
Here is my 1/8" thick, 20 piece chicken set I got for around $40 shipped from the US.

I bought some sets a few years ago, I still have the packaging...

I still shoot them in the basement for fun. I lost all my chickens except one when I was shooting outside, sometimes they go flying and I can't find them in the grass, a magnet helps.

Our silhouette bunch had all of the targets scaled, to be shot at the same range - 10 meters, seems to me was that range. The chickens are bloody tiny!

Nice Crosman Set. Didn't know they carried them.
The chickens are tiny indeed. They can sometimes be shot into orbit. A string tied to them and the target stand usually keeps them from doing that.
Anyway, I just really wish it was more popular.

wow. 1/10th scale chickens are 1.5" x 1.0" I believe, which is shot 20 yards away. So cutting that by half (for 10 yards) is VERY tiny. 0.75"x0.5" chickens !

I love silhouette. The only reason I don't shoot silhouette is field targets are much easier to reset.
