    Hey everyone, we're changing from a weekly target shooting challenge to a monthly challenge.  

    In light of the "close call" trick shot master Rick Rehm Shooter1721 had earlier this week, we're dedicating this months challenge to him!

     

     

    Target Shooting Challenge July

    Airgun: Any

    Caliber: the smaller the better

    Position: Any

    Distance: Make it challenging

    Challenge: Hang a small frangible item from a string. Hang the string in front of a blank target and see how many shots it takes you to break the item.

    Prove it: share some pictures of you & your airgun from the shooting position and a picture of the target once completed.  Or you can get crafty and put together a short video of your accomplishment.  Upload it to your YouTube channel and paste the URL below in this topic.

    Winner will receive an Action Armor spinning Frog target, a tin of JSB/Predator pellets of their choice, and some Airgun Nation stickers.  *Free shipping to the USA

     

     

    Be kind, be smart, be brave, be understanding, be compassionate, be safe, and of course have yourself a bit of fun!

    After hours of shooting and filming I've decided to modify the last challenge.  Apparently its nearly impossible to cut a string (with any size projectile) without it being under tension. 

    Who knew?

    Cheers

    I revisited July's challenge and added a little twist dedicated to trick-shot master Rick Rehm.  You don't have to make the challenge any more difficult that outlined above (unless you want to ;)

     

     

    Glad you're starting to feel better Rick

    Here's my entry. Arnicha pills pilfered from my mothers homeopathic cabinet. Very tiny. Shot at 39yds.

    The graduations on the ruler are 32's. 

    I used my Thomas .177, from a bum bag, no jacket. The first target took two shots. The other two were a bit more trying.

    Great perseverance John!  Those homeopathic pills can be small.
