Last year I bought myself a Stoeger X20 (.177) with a scope and at the time I bought a batch of paper targets to shoot at. I've got quite a big garden, so I attached the targets to some logs and had a thoroughly good time practising. This last week my wife was about to throw out some of her clay creations that hadn't fired correctly... namely a couple of birds with copper legs... so as they were going in the bin anyway, I used them as targets. Blimey it was so much more fun than the paper targets. So much fun, I 'borrowed' some clay disks that my wife had bisque-fired... they had a handy hole in the top to pin to the logs... and with one shot they exploded... again, so much more satisfying than the paper targets. Messy, but fun! Just wondering what other people use as practise targets? Fully aware people use their rifles for pest control etc, but thinking more of static targets... I was considering making myself something akin to the Olympic targets... the ones with the metal disc that automatically covers when you hit. Could be fun.
