Thread: Handy target idea!!!! Cheap!

    Handy target idea!!!! Cheap!

    Well, I bought a Ruger 10/.22 Carbine (in digital camo) last month, and finally got to shoot it this weekend. This was also the first time in a LOONNNNNGGGG time I've been shooting in the country. Usually, I'm at an indoor range. Well, it was pretty fun hearing the bullets tumble as they hit the ground. The "PINGS" and whistles they made were a hoot!

    Anyway, being one that's accustomed to shooting paper, I forgot how much fun it is to blast at cans. I also got one of those "spinning spoon" type .22 targets, and blasted it from about 30 yards.

    The most fun, however, was the dove decoy. Since I couldn't shoot my .40 S&W at the "spinning spoons" and my buddy couldn't shot his .44Mag at them, we bought one arrow @ Walmart and one dove decoy. WEll, surprisingly, the decoy lasted all afternoon......plus it was fun to shoot.

    Here's the carnage......

    I have to agree with you that there is only one thing I know of (I'm pretty sure you know what that is ) that beats the sound of gunfire and the smell of gunpowder, particularly from a brand new firearm. Hope you enjoy your new toy.

    One more thing......RAPID FIRE IS FUN!!!!! Especially when I got the spoons spinning, then just kept hitting them.

    OMG! Don't let an antis see that! Anything capable of "rapid fire" to them is an assault weapon and should be banned.

  6. All I can say is I wish I had been there. Looks like you all had some major fun.

    Dam there goes the dove of peace! Look out here comes PETA. You may have to milk breast feeding women to recover.

    I can just see it now, some "tree hugger" organization is going to file a class action lawsuit against you and your buddies on behalf of all of those doves that feel "threatened" by your rapid firing at a decoy in their likeness.

    It's thoughts like this that make me want to get my firearms together and hit the range.

  9. I love shooting cans need to get some spinners and one of those doves. Looks like fun! I also recomend clays I do some shotgun shooting with them but they are fun to put out there as stationary targets.

    +1 to that. I always try to get the best made most reliable hi-cap mags for my guns.. found an excellent one for my ruger 10/22 that you can take apart and clean.. steel lip.. and can even replace anything in it.. IF you need to of course. it's so well made I don't see it ever needing anything replaced in it. holds 25 rounds. oh yeah it can also be adjusted to fit any ruger 10/22 factory model. congrats on the new toy!

    I was on someone else's land, so I was going for the "easiest to clean up" approach. I was actually surprised that the dove held up as well as it did. It's "soft" enough that it didn't brittle break. Bullets went right through it. The spinners were a blast, too. It looks like the soft-nosed .22 rounds just go "SPLAT" when they hit the steel.
