Re: Fun stuff to shoot at.

Thanks quiet hunter and ian.

I can combine both of your ideas. I will weld some steel strips to the top of my metal target frames so I can set pigeons in them. Sort of a bonus target. When the gong gets to easy to hit at that partiular range we can try for a smaller pigeon.

Or just hang a couple dozen from the frame with your string and clothes pin idea.

Thanks guys.

Re: Fun stuff to shoot at.

Balloons are fun too, especially when there is a little wind, which here in ND is all the time. You can control how much they move with the length of the string you use to tie them to your stand. At under 300 yards old golf balls with a screw in them hung from anything are fun and you can try to hit them when the're still moving, providing you hit them with your first shot.

Re: Fun stuff to shoot at.

.. I've always had an interest in something like they use at the "Boomer Shoot".. But after reading up on it a bit it seems that there's a boo-coo of preparations and other stuff to facilitate the using of such things although it's perfectly legal..
.. That kindof thing would be a real hoot..!! d:^) JiNC

Boomer shoot hold clinics - http://www.boomershoot.org/index.html, or try http://www.rangebomb.com/index.html, or do a search for Tannerite reactive targets which are reported to be impressive.

I remember reading somewhere that some were shooting at eggs. biodegradable. and a little smaller to really get you to focus.

I always have found that charcoal is a great target. It's cheap and when you hit it solid, it leaves a nice cloud of dust.
