I had a set of the alternate animal's I got on sale with the knock down squirrel buddies...and since I am still enjoying shooting the squirrels I figured out what to do with the spare animals.

a hunk of 2x6, some coat hangers, wire garbage bag ties and dollar store cat food bowls (add some PA target stickers or any bright paint laying around) and here it is.

If I hit the animal I get "thunk"..if I hit the opening and thus the dish I get "gong"...hoped for "ding" but really more gong for the panted dish and donk for one with an orange sticker on it.

Still fun and makes use of all those pesky steel animals wandering around the basement. Something else to shoot at.

Maybe looking into building something like this would work. It would not have to be as heavy duty as the one in the video. I think the guys in Argentina actually use these in matches, so that is why the construction is so robust.

The face plate, an inch and a half wide piece of flat stock steel for the paddle. your board and some hinges would do the trick. The wire for the flag could be tack welded on or just put on with a small nut and bolt on the bottom of the paddle. Always nice to see something move, like that flag pop up. You would need a reset string however, unless it could be rigged so the paddle falls, flashing the flag and then resets.

excellent Mac...but ya that is heavy duty. What are they firing at these things..>RPG's?

I am already thinking about heavy gate hinges as paddles and a flag deal to get the hit movement.

hmmm....must go to Canadian tire tomorrow anyway....... stay tuned

Those are some neat ideas to get some 'motion' from a target. I like that idea too of having a 'dong' sound when the center is hit.
(nice music tune playing in the video too! )

That is pretty damn smart Murray! I have got four extra critters sitting in the box waiting to get shot!

So V2 is even better/funner.
A gate hinge, angle bracket and coat hanger.
here are shots toying with counter weight and movement stops so I could get a kick down and back without a string....didn't get string....so finally used the 2 screws to limit travel and an improvised counter weight on the flag arm so with the 935 at 10m you get a ding and a wave!
I assume the 22's or harder hitting 177 guns would need and adjustment of the travel screw but that easy to do... until I get string.
this will work just great with string and perhaps a little stopper to keep it from falling too far past the hinge point so it is easier to pull up with a string. Then it would ding, fall and the flag come all the way up until reset.

about 7 bucks in hardware and some scarp wood and coat hangers. Fun wow!...just need string.....

Hey Murray, what is the diameter of the hole on the silhouette?

Kill zone is 1-1/2" diameter
I have the 2 times the stock set of kill-zone reducers: 1-1/8", 3/4", 1/2" and 3/8"
so I can get a real variety based on distances etc.
