Just out of curiosity, Whats the strangest (read : funnest) target yall have ever shot at?

Ive shot at everything from egg's to stuffed teddy bears to moving RC cars and I'm planning on using those haloween pumpkins here in a couple days. :twisted:

If this needs to be in a different forum or isnt appropriate, then feel free to deleate mel.

It is in the "misc" section, so I'll let it fly.

Flashbangs at 500m were the most interesting (and fun).

At sniper school during FTX, we had an experimental full size maniquin (sp?) mounted on a 4x4 chassis, remote controlled. That was an interesting and cool moving target. I'm not sure if it became a permanent part of sniper school or not...

I shot my old laptop......felt great but was a pain to clean up. Pumkins are fun just get some fast expansion rounds or fill them with water.

My brothers hard drive went corrupt, so that will soon find its way to the shooting range.

Two nice left over pumpkins are appealing too...and a life sized cut out of Michael Jordan will also come along. Can't wait to see how far I can score hits on Mike.

What would you guys think is a suitable caliber to shoot a hard drive with?

We've been smoking concrete drillings about the size of baked bean cans........they were gathered from building sites where the plumbing guys bored through a wall or floor to run pipes.
They explode in a cloud of dust and chips.......all nicely visual :D

Just a friendly reminder: Please clean up after yourselves!! I left a message on these forums a few months back about how horrible one of my favorite shootings places was treated by TRASH (used as targets) being left at this particular spot. I have no problem with shooting various objects, just be sure to clean up after yourselves.

thanks

MEL

PS - I did shoot a wrist watch once when it quit working.

yea i get pissed off when i go to the range and see garbage lying around down range
they dont allow it at the ranges i go to now and are pritty much restricted to clay and paper punching only
the times i shoot any target other than paper or clay is when i go to private land owned by my friend and shoot there

smurfs, the little blue fellas. and what happens to your eyes when you see a flashbang go off through a scope (sorry if that's too ignorant)?

Actually, because its 100+ yards away... and outdoors, nothing really. The bang is the cool part. Flash is just explosion.

Got a couple new ones for y'all. Went out yesterday and tonight for some shooting and came up with these.

1: Take a 5 pound barbell and hang it from a tree/whatever youve got around using a piece of bailers twine at 100 yards. Try to shoot the twine.

2: Same premise, sept use a half gallon milk jug. Fill the milk jug with water and put a cheap glow stick inside it (be sure to use a clear milk jug). Shoot at night at distance. We did it at 300 yards. If you get really lucky you'll hit the stick itself and you get a nice green explosion.

3: Take a 4 foot piece of angle iron and beat it one foot into the ground so that the point of the 90 degree angle is directly infront of where you are shooting. Try to split a bullet on the point. We did this at 660 yards. I was unsuccessful. lol. I hit it a few times, but never split one.

4: Take your mother in law and...... nevermind.

hmmm, well I've shot TV's the tubes pop very visually on the first shot, CO2 cartridges which explode very nicely :twisted: , and clays. Clays are great fun and good moving target practice especially if you angle them just right to get some good elevation and distance. Not as easy when your not using a good 'ol scatter gun and only have one single projectile to hit with.

Great fun. :D

lol.... been there done that one. At one point my neighbor had 17 cats :shock: that we're living around his house. CZ 452 in 22LR and some RWS subsonics with a homemade silencer (read: 2L coke bottle taped over the barrel) make a fun combination. Out to 35 yards anyways.

I don't have any cats, but I tend to agree with yimmy. Killin' someones pets for fun is just plain wrong.
