Okay, ZG. Let me talk some sense into you here. You should get yourself a Dyson and skip the cheapy vacuum. What you spend on a cheap vacuum then having to replace it when it blows up and spend having rugs cleaned because the vacuum didn't clean them well enough, well.....you might as well by yourself the Dyson. I'm not kidding or being sarcastic, either. My sister bought a Kirby vacuum years ago. It was VERY pricey. That sucker has lasted for a good 20 years so far and keeps the rugs cleaner than any cheapy vacuum can. I say bite the bullet and get yourself that Dyson. Didn't you just have your rugs cleaned? Now is the time to do it. Also, I think you might be able to find good 'Christmas deals' on Dysons now. Again, I say, don't waste your money on a cheap vacuum when you could put that money towards a good vacuum that will last you for many years.

How does that target work? Is it a self setting target? When I went to visit Stalkingbear, we went to a range that had self setting targets. You shoot all the little targets down then hit the center target and it uprights all the ones that got knocked down. You could shoot forever without getting off your butt to change a paper target or reset anything. It was great fun. And when I was feeling bratty, I'd shoot down or reset 'Bear's targets when he was reloading and not looking. He thought he was going senile. I tried to assure him he was. ROFL

Yeah, Winds has it nailed here. Don't waste your money of a cheap piece of crap. Get the Dyson and it will probably last the rest of your life. I mean, you wouldn't waste your money on a cheap gun, now would you?

Sweet...but don't let your guard down. There's a "honey I've been thinking about..." moment in your future.

Dang. I shouldn't have posted this. Now no one will want to go shooting with me.

You need a pretty flat surface. There's holes in the base, and they give you these spikes to nail it in the ground with. When it gets hit, the target flips around to the top. It's works the same as the one you were talking about.

My rainy slice of Northern California I call home. Not my best photography, but It'll do for now.

Nonsense! If you had been shooting with me you would have gotten the same treatment! Good to know there are others out there with the same sense of humor.
