    The giant sticks of kids "sidewalk chalk" are neat and cheap.
    A while back I bought a big box of assorted colors at the local hardware store for a dollar.

    Cans, targets, plastic bottles filled with water, hanging steel disc, coons(if they are after the chickens) and an occasional squirrel if they are in season and I want some squirrel stew.

    I don't really have any nearby property to go plinking at, but when the grandson and I go to the range we use the Shoot N C targets. Watching it change color as he shoots one of the 22's always makes his day. Mine too.

    What do I use? CZ P-01 with 9mm FMJ; 8mm Mauser rifle from '44; .223 Savage 12FLV rifle with heavy target barrel; a couple of lever-action (pistol caliber) carbines.

    I had a revelation of sorts today. I was out back with the WaltherP22 and Gemtech suppressor. I was using CCI CBLongs (subsonics) and realized my Crossbow targets make good backstops. They're rated for 400lb crossbows so I figured why not?

    Initially I fired 3 shots at ONE of the targets with a pile of logs behind it as an emergency back stop. I went and checked and it looked like all 3 shots passed through the target block, but only had enough energy to dent the logs behind it and the rounds just dropped to the ground. So...
    I put a second crossbow target blocks behind the first one so they're back to back and tried again. The CBLongs don't make it all the way through the second block. I think we have a new plinker target .

    And this way I don't have to worry about polluting the woods with too much 22 lead either. I figure when she gets good and filled up, I'll just swap it out for a new one.

    I use a an old Marline 25n bolt gun chambered in .22Lr. It has a Simmons 3x-9x-33mm scope and it is dead nuts once I got the scope dialed in @ 100 meters.

    For pistol plinking I've stuck with the Walther P22 target pistol version.

    Cans, clays, dirt clots and what ever else I can find. Just like stump shooting with a bow.

    i love shooting cans, bottle caps/lids, milk jugs, but the only thing that i am missing is the large open space in the country to pull the trigger. i must say that the indoor ranges are nice, but i used to really love just going out in the field with our home made targets and make'm jump or skip.

    thank you for making me depressed.

    Windfall fruit, any trash left at the open range area I shoot at. I don't usually take any thing with me but bring back bags of trash. I like to shoot at old casings, tin cans, wood blocks, old balls, and of course old fruit and vegies.

    My pet peeves are people who shoot at things made of glass, and people who leave trash laying around. I also hate it when people destroy trees. In my area we lost a good shooting area because people were cutting down trees by shooting them with shotguns and large caliber rifles and pistols.
