Go buy a bunch of cheap golf tee's they are great for target shooting. If you like color, then buy some paintballs to put on each tee. o

Cans, plastic bottles full of water, balloons, and the occasional computer.

Refrigerant tanks filled with H2O or empty make great targets!

loaded cans are great to shoot.

clay pigeons, sams club pop (full cans and empty), bottles, bowling pins, a 50gal drum (i'm trying to shoot it in half), microwaves, propane tanks, dehumidifiers...etc.

I paint the metal lids of glass jars, they make great targets for pistol ranges. And are a real challenge for rifle ranges.

... BTW Paul, nice "retirement" post. I read it during the debates and was going to respond a "Thank you for your service" reply but my doorbell rang.

Tin Cans. I take an old wire hanger, straighten it out except for one bend which goes over a tree branch, or what have you.* Get a 16-penny nail and a hammer, and punch 2 holes on the non-open end of a tin can. Loop the hanger through the holes, like a fish-hook.

However, it really screws with my depth perception if I dont put something behind it, like some scrap wood or cardboard.

And to all those who thought "Destroyers" when I said "Tin Can", I dont have my Iowa-Class Battleship yet.

*Yes, I have a proper backstop with this, in the form of a big friggin' hill.

I used to shoot at a steel plate, half inch thick. I'll have to retire that target. 5.56mm does a surprising amount of damage to it.

Charcoal Briquettes are fun. They make a big cloud of dust when you hit them. They also are biodegradable and cheap.

...By then, I am out of beer, and I go home.


Good thinking, man. But you can always fill the beer cans up with water and shoot them, too. I like to fill two beer cans up, and spot them close together. Then I fill up a third, and place it behind the first two.
The first two are hostages, and the third is the bad guy. Head shots only.
