fun targets
 
hi ya'll, first post, i've owned a 10-22 for about 10 years, but just recently overhauled it and turned it into a tack driver! what a blast to shoot, been shooting golf balls, charcole, pez, bottlecaps, clay target pieces, and alot of paper, but the coolest thing i've found so far is sidewalk chalk, i stole it from my kids, score it with a knife and break it into chunks, when you hit it it turns into very colorful balls of smoke. what are some of the cool things you folks shoot? oh also just bought some strike anywhere matches, and have been trying to strike them with a shot, i've broken plenty but no fire yet, has anyone done this?

I learned this in Texas from a chef. Fill a coffee can with flour, leave the top open. when you hit the can a large puff of white flies into the air. You can shoot it over and over.

I like to set up old frying pans and go back really really far so there is a delay between shot and hit so I know I hit it.SHOOT-----Ping!

Empty shotgun hulls. The .22's come out after the bigger stuff is shot. Always plenty of 12 ga hulls.

Crackers. Eggs. Hung by Tape/ thread. For days that you are feeling froggy, poker chips. Ice cubes- no cleanup needed. Cardboard standup figure of Jane Fonda (Vietnam vets only, please) :p

I like to glue asprin onto cardboard to shoot at out to 50 yards, Peppermints out to 100. I used to shoot golf balls wit ha 9mm years ago. Man those things will take off sometimes..:p

I tried a live shell someone had reloaded and had not crimped it correctly. Only the wad. I shot the primer on my 1st attempt w/ my Browning A-bolt .22WMR at 30 yards. I really could not see the primer, only the glint from the brass. Lucky shot!
Rosie O'Donnell dolls are always fun, full soda cans, clays....

My late uncle used to hang a big piece of white paper up and put some rotten food under it,and when the flies would land on the paper he would shoot em.
