It's always tempting, but I'm never in a place that I feel warrants broken glass everywhere, whether I'm out in the woods or in my basement/backyard.

I get my fill for shattering stuff by shooting ice cubes. Nothing to clean up :P

Ah~ if you are afraid of broken glass, you can bagged it up first just like how I did it and the glass won't go anywhere since it is going to be shattered in one shot anyway. If you are still afraid of it, double bagged it!

cool ice cube ideas!

Yup...have enough work to do without making an extra mess to clean up.

Another target that disappears is sugar cubes.

Only glass bottles I have around the yard get taken back for the deposit. I don't think they will believe me if I tell them all that shattered glass is a dozen bottles. Icecubes, q-tips, marshmellows, bottle caps, crab apples from my tree, hornets if they stay still long enough on the crab apple. Straws from a wd-40 can. Stick it in a 2x4 and shoot it off bit by bit. Tooth picks are next on my list. These will be at 10 yards in the garage.

Our black powder field trail through the bush has a number of novelty targets. One is golf balls on golf tees stuck in holes drilled in a log or board- 30 yards. Another is briquets hanging on strings at 25 to 30 yards. Thes are all offhand targets. Of course, the flintlocks distintegrate the briquettes, but the golf balls, if not to far back into the trees, are usualy re-usable unless hit with the .54's or my .69 rifle.

I like the ice cubes on string idea for winter shooting in the back yard.

Ice Cube.. Great Idea.

Novel way of making Slushies.

Try this target:

Using a paper punch make some confetti and glue them to tooth-picks.

I need to use my Avanti to shoot them.. (My best Air gun.)

It's a nice challenge at 10 meters. (Rested Shot for me.)

My best sequence was 28 in a row before I missed..

I'm sure it was because of a bad pellet..
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

So, that’s like a 28 shot group in 1/4 inch or 6mm.

Love my Avanti.

Some times I’ll hit them with my BlackHawk.. But not all that consistent..
I blame the 4x32 stock scope. (By NC-Star)

Golf balls with air rifles is not a great idea. A friend and I were target shooting in my basement (15yds) and decided to try golf balls. Balls have enough elasticity that that is a problem. Center shot makes the pellets come straight back!! Off center hits send them off in any direction. Not doing that again. At the rifle range, my 6mm Remington turns them to shrapanel.

Dollar store mints. They explode rather brilliantly, and the price per mint is similar to the cost of a decent pellet. Tried crackers but just punched holes in them. Not as satisfying.

Yup, while set atop golf tees. But you need a really steady aim & an accurate airgun to do it.

I also like sniping yard sale dinner plates. They can be bought for a dime a dozen. As long as you tidy up afterwards.
I also fill milk cartons with Kool Aid. Nasty :snakeman:
