I always liked shooting eggs for some reason with my rifles. They are a small target, about MOA at about 150 yards, and you get a resounding "splash" effect when you hit them. They are cheap, you can get them anywhere you are shooting, plus there is no residual damage to the poor wildlife when you are done.


Something about that just always appealed to the trigger puller in me....

I use old soda cans and plastic bottles, clays, spinner targets and silhouettes on a target stand.

Maybe I'll get some cheap balloons and off brand sodas this summer for my nieces and nephew when they come out.

Nobody said watermelons? I mean, c'mon didn't you learn anything from that Gallagher guy? If you can't stand to waste a watermelon, maybe a cantelope.

Cans of shaving cream, I found a discarded case of Barbasol in a dumpster once. When you hit those bad boys with a .45 slug they will spin around and spray white foam all over the place. It's like a winter wonderland in June!

I shoot anything that stops working around my house, old lawnmowers, cell phones, old washer and dryer. Shooting a dryer is like shooting a big "Shoot 'N' See, cause when you hit it the paint flakes off around the bullet hole. You can easily see your .22 LR holes at 100 yards. Then I filled the dryer and washer with scrap metal and recycled them at the scrap yard.

Old cars that were stripped and dumped and the back access road of our ranch. Also, back in the day, and I dont reccomend anyone do this, propane tourch cylinders at 400 yards next to a beer can of burning gasoline. Quite the nice mushroom flame cloud. Hide behind something solid as much as possible; shrapnel can be a bitch.
