You are an inspiration twister.

I just thought of something for those of us who shot BB's now and then....make a spoon reset or just spinners but dont flatted them...fill them with duct seal like someone mentioned on another thread about a wooden spinner....then I can shoot BB's at reactive targets! I bet there are other things that coudl be "padded" this way.

I just finished 2 outdoor targets.Princess sells a 36 inch pick up tool.It's for picking small stuff off the floor insted of bending down.The outside is a long quarter inch diameter spring.I cut it in half and put a stake on one end and a spike on the other.I am going to use a ball of ductseal on top for the target.With the right weight it should move around pretty good.I haven't tested them yet though.Someone else had this idea but used a tennis ball on top.I figure duct seal would work much better.No riccochets.
Just in case it works out i bought a few of those springs.lol

So how will you deal with the holes in the couch?.....expensive back stop......
cool idea though...I think there are still greater uses for duct seal than are dreamt of in your phylosophy Horatio

It looks very complete! I like the idea of using milk crates, and the bells too. I'll have to look for some on my next dollar store run.

One thing though, not very nice to shoot at pictures of real people unless they are of Osama bin Laden or someone. Juuuust in case police ever have a reason to enter your home and see that, or if you are applying for a PAL and your reference buddy says on the interview "Yeah my friend loves to shoot, he has this airgun range in his basement and he shoots pictures of the Senators"

I get what your saying.Maybe i will switch them for Maple Leaf cards,nobody will care then. :wink: I just bought those the other day to try out.They actually suck as targets because they have to much going on.Usually i use playing cards from the dollar store.
