Started out as individual steel targets to shoot with pellet guns

It got tiring real fast having to reset the targets so I decided to make a resettable target bank

Then I added a 45° backstop and some "bowling pins". Different style targets can easily be changed out by pulling a few clip type pins.

I wish I knew how to weld. I can solder wires and pipes and learned to weld using oxygen and acetylene when I was in school but I have nothing to weld at home and expecially a MIG or TIG welder.
Great work!

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

Yes I envy you guys who can really do metal work.
I have a welder at the farm but have used it only a few times to melt some metal onto a broken mower deck! I will not even pretend call it welding.
You can sure here the 'plink" when you hit you targets. Fun stuff.

Yes...the plink and the visual of falling targets adds to the fun to this type of airgun shooting.
I have since put some foam tape on the reset bar so when the target falls on it the secondary clank is eliminated.

I was shooting my Walther CP88 Comp on the videos. The camera may be giving a distorted view of the ricochets. The pellets seen bouncing back barely made it past the camera which was mounted on a tripod about 1 meter from the targets. I shoot the steel targets at 5 meters and no pellets have come back that far. As when shooting pb's I also wear safety glasses when shooting airguns.
