I've got shitloads of scrap wood laying around my house, and I've been thinking peices of plywood might make nice reactive targets. I was thinking 2x4s cut to about 4" long (for a 4x4" target, or chunks of plywood), then putting two eye bolts on one of the small sides and suspending the block from my target string with two pieces of string so it wouldnt swing in the breeze and if I clipped the string, my whole row of targets wouldnt go down. I'm looking at shooting .22lr and .223 at it, is this a wise/safe thing to do from about 25 to 50 yards? Kharn

Why don't you shut the hell up about the mcuzi.com shit? Now on to the plywood. We usually shoot at plywood, but it has targets stapled to it. We shoot at it with rifles at a 100yds up to pistols at 5ft and have never had a problem with it other than it occasionally wears out. As long as you have a good backstop I don't see where it would be a problem. Michael

Do you think a 4x4x2" block of wood would swing around after being hit by a .22lr? I dont know if the .223 would make it dance, considering how fast the bullet is going, it might just blow a hole straight through. Kharn

I really couldn't tell you. Its kind of hard to guess at what a bullet is going to do until you try it. I've shot at clay pigeons set up on the ground with my .22's to only shoot holes straight through them sometimes. Just set it up and see what happens. It can't hurt to try. Michael
