Shooting my Umarex DX-17 indoors today from various distances between approximately 4 and 7 meters. I set up a makeshift bb/pellet trap but will be making a better (and safer) one soon. Shooting Crosman Destroyer pellets and Umarex bb's. Too much fun to be legal. :lol:

The victims. :yawinkle:

hey skull. ya might as well have fun while it lasts. there are tons of homemade target ideas in this section. i,ve got a few here that you might like to try and make. you can make your own shoot and see ones out of paper tape and paint too. they work great and are a lot cheaper than store bought ones. don,t need to say have fun because it looks like you are.

[emoji38] it depends on the demands ~

As my guns getting higher power after I have my PAL, I mostly to compress them before shooting them now...

And these some days, I put open sights back on and use more cans than before as I can't aim at the pellet size circles I draw on the bottom of the can with the 10x power scope and have to aim the whole bottom then shoot at the right center... ImageImage

This is just the beginning. We'll see if the addiction takes you too.

Oh those cans I show are not done yet! That was just for today. :lol:

I also was using my Daisy Powerline 340 bb pistol that I got on sale at CT last month for indoor shooting. For what this cheap gun is worth I can consistently hit the cans from 4-7 meters. It also rips through the cans nicely when hit in the right spot. :)

Be minded the BBs are under power to make dents on this form and be careful that they bouncing back to you~ ;)

I like use wadcutter flat nose pellets on them and I will also aim at the rim which some times the flat nose pellet from a PAL rated rifle would just make a dent and wouldn't go through. It stuck there or bounced straight back right in the front of me rest... That happened too many times... Image
