    What's your favorite plinking target(s)?

    I love shooting clays, Shoot-N-C, empty shotgun shells, empty soda cans/Powerade bottles, popsicle sticks.

    I recently got a couple of those Jack in the Box antenna balls. I wish I could get more, they sure look like alot of fun to shoot at. :)
     
  2. Bowling pins if I can find 'em.

    Shoot N-C by far. I shoot at a range were only paper targets are allowed and I like to see the holes appear as I make them.

    Not to mention the faces of the by standers as I change the color of the targets.
     
  4. I have a friend that can get empty 30 gallon plastic barrels, and I print bullseye targets from the internet and tape them to the barrel.

    I have also mounted tv satllite dishes to the top of the barrel and shot them up

    I go to a foresty range, where max range is about 50 yds. At that range, golf balls, at 10-25 yds, a dime

  10. Left over halloween pumpkins, love shooting them..........
     
  11. Nothing but paper is allowed on the ranges I shoot at, so I print my targets from the net for the most part.
     
  12. I've heard of people shooting shaving cream cans & propane bottles. Never tried it myself.

    Shaving cream is a blast (Literally) Fun target to throw in the air and blast with shotgun... Rains down rich lather everywhere... I love shooting steel targets, Wally world soda (2.50) for a 12 pack. Of course I pick up the cans afterwards. Sporting clays laid out stationary. little rimfire spinner targets... and of course any containers filled with water. Ive always wanted to blast a propane bottle but here in Tucson, Az that is a death wish for starting a big fire.. Ive had one close call one time with a tracer almost starting a fire....Thats the end of pyrotechnics mixed with firearms for me.
