air gun challenge
« on: December 30, 2020, 05:21:31 AM »
Let's face it. Doesn't just shooting at little dots on a piece of paper get pretty boring after awhile. I changed all that with my two air rifles. I now place a piece of cardboard up at 50 feet and then put a couple drops of honey on it and just wait until those pesty house flies show up for their " Last Supper" Now you have something to look forward to when Spring and Summer rolls around.

I've never been much of a paper puncher. I'll use a target to sight the gun in, but after that it's all about reactive targets. I like shooting steel so you hear the impact, and see the target move. I also like impromptu targets like pop cans and the like. They get really animated when hit properly.

Your air gun target choice is very interesting though! Talk about moving targets! I bet it's a real challenge.

I never thought of doing something like that. It gives me something to look forward to this next summer.

It's even a bigger challenge when you try to hit them between the eyes. ;)
