Doubling and tripling cans makes fun ballistics comparisons.

It's even better when you can use plastic bottles and cans

doubled up inside each other. Add sand, water, jello, to

your preference.

Save any and all junk-mail stickers. They make great

aiming references, and bullet hole covers...

shaving cream is pretty impressive when it pops, some of those small yogurt cups, the little 6 or 8 ounce soda cans work well too. i'm always a big fan of just a plain empty beer or pop can, it's always fun to use bullets to chase it around the range

you can always hit the produce aisle, pick up some apples, oranges, melons of any type or size

I went shooting yesterday morning and i go to an outdoor public shooting range and i brought bags of fruit. Oranges, apples a couple of cantelope and a coconut filled with tannerite. And the coconut was a joke it really didnt do anything other than crack into a few pieces. I even plugged the hole with a spent 7.62 casing to make a seal and it didnt work to good. But a couple of water bottles full of that stuff is a good time. Hitting those bottles make a good size boom. And there is no mess at all. The birds and squirells will eat all the fruit and pick up is done.

I agree with produce. I had a great time shooting a watermelon and a pumpkin. Eggs. Soda cans.

My wife is a part owner of a restaurant. She used to keep me those empty beer bottles. I had fun shooting them on an abondoned land, close to desert.
