Default .22 targets for fun

What are your best targets that you use for fun?

I enjoy shooting cans and bottles but what can be more creative and fun?

Default

get a 3' 2x4.....
drill 1/8" holes in the 3.5" side every 2"
put golf tees in the holes
put paintballs on the tees
shoot the paint balls
then shoot the tees

when you get tired of that..... take a small container of sugar water, and spread it on the paper targets...... after a few minutes, you can shoot the flies.

FWIW - shooting glass is often frowned upon

Beer and soda cans are my favorite victims.

Get a sheet of pegboard or cheap plywood from the scrap section of Lowe's or Home Depot. Buy a box of clays from walmart, place nails or screws a few inches apart on the boards and hang the clays on them. Make a stand out of 2bys and shoot away!

The boards should last for a while before the .22s tear it apart. Then buy another board and repeat.

Become friends with the fruit and produce guy at your grocery store.
Then get old fruits and veggies to shoot at for cheap to free.

Default fun .22 targets

We like to play challengeing shooting games. Try cutting stem of a walnut,scyamore ball,hickory nut or other with a bullet,then busting the target before it hits the ground. another is sliding a empty 12 gauge hull over muzzle end of barrel,pull trigger to launch hull(it'll really go up!) and hit hull while still in air-NOTE-ONLY IF YOU HAVE PLENTY OF SAFE LAND(at least 1 mile in direction of shooting). Another is to line up empty .22 shells on a board at 50 yards and see who has longest run before missing. Another thing we do is put out the small clay piegons out about 150-200 yards. And of course running rabbits make challengeing targets in season. PLEASE DO NOT shoot glass bottles as they leave dangerous shards from now on.

Ummm, wow, I hope you are kidding. Not good advice to stick anything on the muzzle and shoot. It may work for you but it shouldn't be something you advise others to do. It's quite ironic you condone that and give advice not to shoot glass bottles.

Default targets

What I'm talking about is 12 gauge empty hulls will fall freely on OUTSIDE of barrel and fall off easily-thus-NO barrel obstruction as there is no pressure built up. The .22 barrel is WAY smaller than the empty 12 gauge hull and will fall off of it's own weight easily when muzzle is pointed down.
