     Love reactive targets!  Using paintballs I like to get a $1.00 bag of fluorescent Golf tee’s to place them on.
    These cost about nothing and work very well
     
    This is “Sparkey” a defective – and free- Christmas yard ornament with a bell for the heart lung shot, sometimes he got wrapped in paper
     
    My friend Pat has some GREAT bell targes which are a lot of fun



     A friend makes these all stainless steel spinners:

    They seem pretty tough at least enough for 30fpe at 15 or so yards.

    Cant find a picture of my favorite bell target it is just a square with a 1/4″  I like having at my zero ( 27 yards) a flapper/striker that the pellet hits and smacks the bell as pellets would kill the restaurant type bell if shot directly.

    Here’s a metal (aluminum) spinner target I hammered into a tree about 18 years ago.  If you look close, you can see the growth rings around the nail.
    It held up well to BB guns and low powered pistols and rifles,  but the Wildcat is knocking the snot out of it.  Don’t expect it to last much longer !

    Haha! The Wildcat sure is a powerful enough. How thick is the steel? And what caliber Wildcat do you have?

    I had a fun session yesterday and during which I placed a dime on one of our trees allowing the bark to hold it in place and walked back to my post @40yds. I’m not sure I could have placed a better shot on the queens head (Canadian) if I wanted to… I wish I had filmed this one, but I was trying to re-zero and didn’t realize I wasn’t going to get any tighter. 

    So Canadian dimes @ distance is fun!

    This is my updated version, since shooting in the dark is my only option nowadays.

    Just gotten my hands on some thicker steel which was a real treat to weld on compared to thinner plates.
    I think I’ll try to make a popper target (auto-reset).. Anyone got reference photos for me?

    Plinking at my home made “Ilean” popper target.
    Shots taken from my car at 87 meters away. Below are some photos with measurements in metric units.

    Nice BitFrost!
    is there a spring or something mounted on the backside that makes the target (snowman of course) pup up after the hit?
