I am getting bored of just shooting conventioal paper targets and steel targets, so i started looking for exploding rimfire targets. I have found a wide variety online but, they are all about $50 plus in price. So does anyone know of any targets that are a good bang for your buck? Any suggestions would help. Thanks!
You might try pool que chaulk. Not a real explosion but they do make a nice blue puff when hit. I like to drill a 1/8 hole in them and use a hot glue gun to glue wooden matches in them. I have a stand with holes in it to hold all sorts of fun targets. We have a rinfire match we call a medicine match. We shoot aspirins and vitamins and tic tacs at 25yds and tums,giant smarties and pool que chaulk at 50yds. Even an aspirin makes a nice little puff when hit. Give it a try. Slim
Kind of pricey, but me and my girl did it once. You can use small cherry tomatoes or those individual sized things of butter. They tend to go flying off in random directions though......can also try the large rectangular blocks of butter. It's pretty cool to see the "wound" cavity that gets left behind.
I'd list the chemical compounds found in old Chemistry sets that mix quite well into fun things...
but these days they get kinda cranky about that stuff
Funny how in the 50's to 70's we were given Chemistry sets...which now contain practicaly NONE of the fun things we used to play with...
Guess they were afraid we might learn to be Chemists or something?? Hehehe
