Ive posted this before but for my money sidewalk chalk is the greatest thing, they explode in a cloud of dust when hit. for closer work .22 casings are good out to 20 yards for a bit of a challenge.


Ok. Dude. My wife has a few nasty words for you!! Ever since I read this post, sidewalk chalk has become a tradeable commodity in my home! I have obliterated a couple of tubs of the stuff! I have powdery colored streaks all over my target zone in the back yard......

I love the sidewalk chalk idea. Brilliant! Now, ice cubes are on the list as well.

But, it was this post right here that got me started on the chalk, and I've had a ton of fun blowin' those little suckers up from 50-60 feet :) so thanks!

Great sport at whatever distance suits you and yer gun :twisted:

Okay I like paddyfritz's idea of hanging spent CO2 cartridges for targets. God knows we all have a handful laying around.
I've already bought some golf tees & a box of paintballs. Can't wait to try that idea out. Next I'll have to visit the Dollar Store to buy some cheap chalk. That will be a real test of my marksmanship.

Another idea that I saw mentioned on this forum was using Dollar Store plant hangers that you push into the ground and hanging tin cans.

Oh yes, I do also happen to have a couple of spinners that I bought for target practice. Nothing is as sweet as the sound of your pellet "pinging" off the targets.

Not long ago I ordered a Gammo air gun/pellet target from an online website. When I opened the box I was genuinely surprised that the target, a spinner, was only 8" tall.
I'm really going to have to improve my aim if I'm to hit these tiny spinners at 25 yds.

The bigger spinners are much easier to hit.

Nothing is as enjoyable as shooting from just inside your patio door and hearing that "ping" as you hit the target.
But remember this my friends, open the patio screen door before you shoot. :oops: Apparently I forgot.
Guess what I'll be replacing on Saturday afternoon?

I wanted to cut a small hole (about barrel size) in the screen and stitch some velcro around the hole, then stich some velcro on a bit bigger piece so I could remove the screen hole to shoot and replace it when done so no bugs could come in!
I tought GENIUS right? Well apparently not according to my wife :roll: :rolleyes:

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Phonebooks, potted meat cans (I don't know why on earth anyone would eat that stuff, but it sure looks cool when you see the pellet trajectory inside!), printed targets from Google Images (save lost of $$$), produce fruit, and basically anything from Dollarama. There's really no limit as to what you can shoot up, unless if its something stupid like lighters, compressed gas canisters, people, animals...you name it. I love to give myself challenges as to what I can do with a basic rifle and open sights...usually try to extinguish a flame from a candle at a distance (99% of the time the candle is non-reusable lol).

The ice cubes are an awesome idea. Think I might try freezing some with some fishing line in them so they can hang up

Try glueing the string on with a glue gun, it works on eggs. We used to have an egg shoot on Easter weekend. (centerfire to 500 meters).
