Forgot how much fun it was.. Placed a white piece of paper, as a backing so I could see them better.

Unfortunately body shots, makes them fly into the paper. As seen here.

Decided to try and shoot the hand.. First shot was low. Second I disarmed him...

Yeah I was just using the Beeman P17 at around 410 FPS.. I was trying to knock their arms and head off. But guess I need something more powerful.

I thought they were much brittle.. I went with my 2100.. Should been around 650 FPS with 8.2s... And just left a dent in his helmet..

I have a bunch of the steel army tip overs. Have never shot them yet as I am looking for like a Barbie House or something similar sitting at the side of the road. To buy new is just way to much money to shoot at. Wooden house would be better but not for $100 and more. CHEERS!

Put up a video of a Hw77 knocking the head off a I inch thick..... 12 inch tall high impact polystyrene figure and I'll send you a $100.00.…..Target practice from 3 inches doesn't count.....and THAT wouldn't do it either…...I worked with plastics of all kinds and I shot them too....what you state can't happen...oh...and ...sorry.

I need to paint the backing white... I was trying to shoot the hands, rifle barrels etc..

Just hard when the crossair is contrasting with the dark backing.. But still managing to hit it.

That P17 is quite accurate..

and I don't shoot from 3" never have never will not even with a pistol its more like 35ft that's my basement
shooting distance unless I open the laundry room door and that gives me another 10ft...
but since you like to give money away i'll see if i can shoot a vid if I get some time...Oh and sorry you will be, :wink:

Yeah I read the post properly...but you obviously didn't read my post so your argument makes no sense....were you ever a politician?.. I mentioned 1 inch thick plastic figures I shot as a boy...in the 60s....which back in the day were made from plastic mixed with rubber which produced a different type of plastic used in toys etc..Many toy figures today are made from general polystyrene..as well as H.I.P.S. and other plastic variations....without the rubber additive so yeah...they could break apart....especially the tiny bits....however...vitamin bottles...etc. don't shatter or crack when hit do they...the caps do....but not the bottle..the pellets just pass through...and your pellets wouldn't pass through a 1 inch solid piece of H.I.P.S. (High Impact Polystyrene)...which is what my targets were made of ........sorry if you got confused...My offer stands... blow up a 1 inch solid HIPS with a springer....can't happen....no need to get ruffled..

and so you decided to change it to a much bigger action figure.... :ANAL:
that kind of spin makes you a top politician good job... :lol:
that's like me telling you to shoot a firearm through a 1" metal plate... :butthead:
