Ive just started collecting bottle tops, i know its sad but they make a decent target for plinking at, they can be nailed to tree's or fences and are easy to carry in your pocket.

I have bought a few of the SMK range of knock down / reset targets.

I got them from a chap called Welsh Willy , an RFD in Wales, strangely enough.

He trades as Woodfield Gun products, and every now & then has a special on things like this.

Easy , & no hassle to set up & collect afterwards.

Nice. I've been looking at getting one or two targets.. The rat/crow ones look good from JSR and are a good price.

I use home made spoon spinners,you need a fairly stout stainless spoon though or they just get wrecked quickly.Buy them from the charity shops and mount them on some threaded rod and ues pvc tube to seperate them either a wooden or old angle iron frame does the trick.
Then there is the reactive tube target Shocked made from square section tube with a hole drilled through it near the bottom and sticks of chalk dropped in from the top.A hit is signalled by a large puff of dust,this is a skill target as the hole can only be 12mm at most because of the size of the tube needed to keep the chalk standing upright.
Empty 12gram CO2 capsules make good spinners too,slightly flattened and drilled through near the top.

I have made a bell target using a remote control door bell in a wooden box ,a steel plate about 1/4 inch thick with a hole drilled centre just a couple of mm bigger than the .22 pellet also a plate just a couple of mm bigger than .177 a steel pendelum the other side of the hole, You have to get it dead centre to set it of and then its one of ten tunes the box being timber is OK its only a problem if you are not a good shot then bits fly off.So far this is the first box in 12 months

Bottle tops are nice, as are:
- swinging EMPTY co2 12gr bulbs
- little claytargets (also shoot at the left-over parts!)
- those pasta food pipes (environmental friendly!) otherwise, those plastic pipes
- small spinners
- empty cans
- hanging macaroni's pasta thingies
With a cheapo magnetic strip, you can attach, and shoot off, every steel thingie thingie you like

you can also use paintballs, they just wash away when it rains, and look great when you hit them

Extra strong mints....

Love the way they disappear with a good shot. Very satisfying...
