Default Shooting Cheap

This economy has me being a cheapskate. I've picked up a couple of BB guns and I'm going to try those for my shooting fix. I was really pleased by a Crosman Powermaster 66 kit that I picked up. It came with targets, shooting glasses, a scope, and ammunition, and the airgun for less than $50.

Here are some other tips that I put together for shooters trying to save money in this economy:

I shoot .22LR for cheap shooting.
Also 12ga. shotgun shells, although they just went up (hunting season) I can pickup 100 shells (Federal or Winchester) for 22 bucks. Just recently at the local range the owner was selling boxes of 25 count of 12ga. & 20ga. for $3.50 per box. I stocked up to say the least.

Believe it or not, a wrist-rocket (slingshot) is a lot of fun to shoot. My wife and I had a blast one afternoon in the backyard..

I shoot more .22lr than anything else so I guess that is my way of shooting cheaper.

I am enjoying a used pellet gun i got this year. It is cheap to shoot, and i can shoot in my backyard without bothering anyone or getting the cops called on me (HUGE +). I also hate crapping in the woods, so shooting from the back porch can be handy.

Hey Brick, You gotta be kidding me.. Wrist rockets not legal in NY ?..
That's even worse than Commiefornia..

My vote is still with slingshot ! Glass marbles make great ammo. Pachinko balls. Even ball bearings out of C.V. joints. Forget the rocks ! They have a tendancy to curve. Kinda' like shooting a cheap paintball rifle..
