Do you like to shoot pop cans? I think it would be not that boring than just shooting paper targets....

So, do you think it's annoying when you knock down the pop can, you need to go to the target and 'reset' it? I do.... I don't want to interrupt my loading aiming and shooting cycle although it's just some meters walks...

And I suddenly find a good way to avoid the pop can being knocked down... Just use a paper cup, and put the can into the cup, then use the up-side-down cup as a holder... Then place this thing in front of your pellet trap...

Even you just shot enough pellets through the cup, it still stands well... I used this one for a whole day and finished 3 cans on it...

I put a stick on the ground and put the cans upside down on them.
Easy peasy

Been using these for years.
Foam can coolies cut in three and siliconed to a piece of plywood.
They don't move at all.

Sooooooo...
If the cans don't fly every which way
thereby satiating the shooter's need to animate inanimate objects
and experience the rush of power when fighting man to can...

This would be better than shooting targets how, then?

:P

My target boxes have a place to hang cans from the tabs. As long as the tab holds out you can shoot them until the bottom drops off.
I only use the foam holders outdoors and at longer distances.

I noticed the most powerful of your gun makes most cleanest cut holes on the cans... Of course distance is very important too... (Flat nose makes bigger hole too ~ )

And my target / pellet traps are placed on a small desk... I think I can use tapes to stick a bamboo rod to put the can on it... Then I don't even need to go up to the cup to turn the can when I finish one side. And I can shoot on the side of the can and it will turn for me~

The can hanger in the trap is brilliant!!

Yeah I don't see the point of having a can stationary. May as well just get a gong. Then don't have a jagged tin can ripping your garbage bag up. Can are meant to be shot on the ground, so you can keep on chasing after it.

A stationary can, is like having a dueling tree that doesn't flip back and forth.

Yep, I agree that's the correct way for a can to be destroyed... However, guns and shooting are not friendly to the public now, and I have to shoot them in my basement...

Although actually sometimes when the can fell on the ground, and after judge my 400 fps pistol with wadcutter won't go through it and 'destroy' other things behind it, I will keep shooting it... [emoji38]

Thanks ~ I think ppl like guns is because guns can fullfill our dark inside mind of destroying something... Actually cans is the second choice.... Something can explode after being shot would be much better... But thinking about cleaning the mess afterwards....

Reactive targets like soup cans at a distance are fun...interesting how different pellet weights ...shapes and calibres
give different results.....which is part of the fun .....177's pass through the can with a kind of "tink" sound while the .22 hollowpoints....which also pass through...make a satisfying " clunk" sound and send the can much further....So i prefer to target practise with the .22's......plus I video the whole session and play it back later at home in slow motion.
Plastic water filled soya sauce bottles put on quite a show too.... :D

I'm not saying my idea is better (even if it is).

Hitting the can on the stick anywhere but dead center will make it spin madly!

Totaly agreed...

Usualy, got 2 or 3 can's. Not only they do move but keep going away, so aiming keep changing to with the distance. 4.5mm or 6mm does not make any difference, remain's fun... 8)

In a perfect world we would all have an outdoor area to shoot but that's not the case.
We have to make do with what we have.

If you know someone who drinks RedBull the cans are especially fun to shoot.
The aluminium is a bit thicker than regular pop cans but they're also smaller so they'll spin and jump more than regular ones.
