This time of year pumpkins are pretty cheap. You can see the difference a good HP makes in comparison to an FMJ.

Put a needle and thread through some Mentos and suspend the Mentos in a Diet Coke bottle by putting the thread under the cap. Then shoot the cap off. After that fun is over, shoot the bottles.

Build a wooden man and put a gun analogue in his hand. Practice shooting the gun out of his hand, so you can save the day without killing anyone.

Drive a nail partially through a 2x4 and then shoot it the rest of the way.

Get a big piece of wood, paper, poster board, or whatever and shoot a design into it. A smiley face, Molon Labe, Have A Nice Day, etc.

Hang something from a rope and keep shooting until the rope breaks. Might come in handy if you ever have to save someone from the gallows.

Buy an untrimmed Bonzai tree and trim it. WITH BULLETS!!!!

Build a Rube Goldberg device that is initiated with one well placed shot.

Clamp a long line of matches between two boards and then try to shoot the tips off of all of them with one shot.

Build a shooting tree and place 52 playing cards on it at different spots. Then shuffle up a second deck and have someone draw a card and call it off. You then find the corresponding card on the tree and shoot it. Compete against friends.

Put an axe blade out there with the blade facing you. Put some type of bullet catch behind it and try to halve a bullet.

Put an apple on the top of a dummies head. Shoot the dummy then go eat the apple. This will prepare you for stealing apples when SHTF.

Set a target behind a metal tube that is set perfectly level at your gun height and try to shoot through the tube.

Build a large slingshot and put something it it like a cantaloupe and aim it up and to whichever direction you like. Pull the sling back and lock it down. Fire your pistol (with only one round in it) to initiate the sling and then quickly put the pistol down and pick up a shotgun and shoot the cantaloupe out of the sky.

Hang something from a rope and get it swinging. Shoot at the moving target.

Make a life size zombie out of foam core, place it on a light stake and attach that to an RC Car. Have a friend drive the RC Car around. This will prepare you for, duhhhh, the zombie apocalypse. If you're wise you will prepare for both slow and fast zombies.

Suspend a bottle of vinegar above a box of baking soda. Shoot the baking soda and then the vinegar. There are much more interesting chemical reactions available, but I don't want to be held liable.

Shoot the bubbles out of a sheet of bubble wrap, one at a time.

Set up a bubble machine and kill those evil bubbles.

Put little bags of fake blood under the clothes of a zombie dummy and shoot it and watch it bleed.

Suspend your lady friend's underwear and shoot out the nipples and crotch. You just saved some money on crotchless panties and nipple revealing bra.


I'll stop there.

Do all of the above again, except this time backwards over your shoulder while holding a small mirror. But that does get a little redundant, so....

Put a steel plate on the back of a toy car. Each shot will push it a little further and you'll gradually learn to shoot at further distances.

String up a display of about 20 light bulbs that are set to light up in a random order for about 2 seconds. Shoot the one that lights up. The off time in between lights should also be random from about 5-15 seconds so that you cannot anticipate the timing of the shot in addition to the position.

Put a round target out with 4 quadrants. Each quadrant is a different color, Red, Yellow, Green and Blue. Then play the game Simon, but instead of pushing the buttons you shoot and a friend presses the button based on what you hit to keep the game going or lose.

Put a dummy in a chair and under that chair a barrel of gunpowder. Light a long wick and stand 15 yards away and try to shoot the wick before it reaches the barrel. It could save your wife's life someday. Another version is to leave a trail of gunpowder instead of a wick and shoot a gap in the trail.

Set up a zip line that is angled down towards you. Have a small plate on a swingarm come down the line. Every time the plate is hit it swings back and activates a brake which stops it. Gravity swings the plate back down and the brake is released and it starts coming down the zip line again. Keep shooting it to stop it and try to keep it from reaching a set point for as long as possible. Have it long enough to where you'll need to reload as well. Compete with friends.

Make a wheel made of arms and steel plates. Connect the axle to a generator and keep shooting the plates to make the wheel spin to generate electricity. Compete to see who can keep a light bulb lit the longest.

Take a similar wheel except this time connect it to a vertical axle that is threaded. Each hit of a plate will make the wheel spin and climb the threads. Try to get it to the top as fast as possible. Extra tricky if the threads are angled in such a way that the wheel can actually start spinning back down under gravity.

Set up a hardened spike pointing at you and shoot a hollowpoint at it dead on. Set up a high speed camera to capture it and post the video here.

Set out a dartboard and play various games like Cricket, 501 Up, etc. with a friend. 3 shots per turn.

Set up a Plinko board (from The Price Is Right) and shoot at the erratic plinko as it falls and bounces around.

Shoot ping pong balls off the tops of bottles.

Make the wife a new colander by shooting a mixing bowl full of holes with a .22.

Get some water jugs, clay, ballistic gelatin, wet newspapers, or what have you and conduct your own makeshift hollow point comparison.

Put some flowers out and wait for a bee to come along. See if you can get it at 10+ yards.

Make several homemade guns that are nothing more than a barrel, a chamber, a locked breach and access for a firing pin. Line them up so that when one is fired it will strike a plate causing the firing of the next one. Arrange them so that it's not just a boring straight line. The last one is aimed at a target. The first one is set off by you shooting a pistol.

Set up two dummies, one in front of the other and put them on something to keep them moving a little. The dummy in the back is a hostage taker. BOOM, headshot!

Set up a dummy on a track that comes towards you. Dress the dummy up as a BATFE agent. When it comes at you, hide your pistol in the small of your back and tell him about your tragic boating accident.

Put an old style beer keg that has a spigot above a pyramid of beer mugs. Extend the spigot arm and shoot the end of it. The spigot opens, the beer flows into the top glass and then overflows to all the glasses below until they're all filled. Put your gun away and have a party.

Put a whole shit load of t-shirts on a dummy and see how many a bullet penetrates. Conduct the test again with that many shirts plus a few more and see if it stops the round still. Add until it does. You now know how many shirts to wear for a makeshift bullet resistant vest.

Fill a box with ping pong balls and leave the top open. Shoot into the box. I imagine some ping pong balls would come flying out. Repeat with packing peanuts, etc.

Set out a can of hair spray and a flame nearby.

Set out a painter's canvas to the left of and facing your targets. Your targets will be cans of spray paint, paint cans, little bottles of paint, etc. Sell that shit as modern art and make millions. Scratch that, I'm doing this one. Move along.

Golf balls, ice (no cleanup), apples, charcoal, expired food, etc.

I'm sure you'll think of something.

Get shotgun shell empties from the skeet/trap range.. push them into the ground a little, metal side up. 12 ga through 410 in increasing difficulty.
