    I built this a few years ago to shoot a Colibri at in semi-auto, and more powerful PCP's too. Recent posts made me think about this almost forgotten toy target.

    Impressive build it is.  The fact that it still werqs and holds up to that kind of power attests to how well built it is.  Looks like it is quite the challenge and you are definitely up to it.  Thanks for the post.

    LOL.   I have trouble hitting them when they hold still.  

    How you did that I have no idea.  I am impressed.  I think that thing would drive me nuts but how you made it work I have no clue

    Nice target but they are moving in the same pattern. All you do you hold where it show up, wait and get timing right. But in real life your moving targets ain't gonna be moving in the same pattern. So you wont be able to use the same method.

    That might be how YOU would do it.  I’d turn on some music and try to get into it a little and follow along. Can you see me movin ‘n grovin on the bags? 

    As far as hunting practice.  Seems pretty much like head shots on pigeons to me.  😀

    I did say it was just a dumb toy in the title. But ImpactX – It is about like you said, "All you do you hold where it show up, wait and get timing right."  

    bubblerboy64 –  That's too funny. Maybe when the LCS SK 19 I have on order shows up I should get this thing out put on some music and waist some lead. 

    Like head shots on pigeons.  I bet a feeding Pigeons head is a bouncing and bobbing moving target. 

    biohazardman –  When I made this thing I designed it for about 60 FPE at point blank range without being damaged. At 75 FPE in .30 cal. the targets bounce back up a lot of the shots.  The machine can handle it though.

    Str8tshooter – I don't know about a market. But, a motor suitable for something like this is the biggest problem to building one. The Chinese motors just won't holdup. 

    TEXAS –  A toy for sure. No worries. I think sometimes we get so caught up in our strong opinions about something, that it causes our narrow minded experience to get in our own way. One can't learn much when they already know everything. 

    whyzee –  Nope. It's a 12 – 24 volt USA "manufactured" 30 year old motor that costs about $260.00 to buy one new.  1.25" Dia. and maybe 3" long.
