    I often find when theres notting to shoot other that printed out targets you can get bored:violent3:. Can you think of anything interesting to shoot? For example i sometimes shoot at blocks of ice or fizzy drinks that have been shaken.(leave safty out of this thread).:eek:

    Instead of chalk targets use extra strong mints! They are so much cheaper! Some fun things i have shot are light bulbs, lighters (the 10 for a £1 type), eggs and ballons with flour in them. Whilst none of these items will test your shooting they are fun!

    Oh yeah thought of one more! Place a marker pen (metal bodied one) in front of some white paper and shoot it, makes some nice ink splats! :D

    Your pellet tin once it's empty.

    One of those mini sized highlighters.

    Actually come to think of it, I once used an old and broken BSA Mercury as a target once - sold it for £15 a few days later with a dozen pellets stuck down the barrel ...

    Sometimes I shoot puffballs at the farm, too.

    cyalumes (snap-lights) hung on bits of string, in the dark, try multiple colours for the best effects. after 8 - 12 hours the glowing effect wears off, leaving no evidence.
