    I was watching one of the shooting shows that I recorded last night, and I saw some really neat reactive targets. It was a type of Pepper Popper target. It consisted of a metal sillouette that would fall backward when hit and that would then launch a clay pigeon into the air. I haven't been able to find the exact target on line yet. Does anyone know where I could find this for sale?
    Thanks

    You would probably have to find someone to make it. Top Shot doesn't buy their setups, they make them.

    I experimented yesterday trying to come up with a skeet flipper that should work with a regular Pepper Popper. I think I about have it figured out. Y'all keep me posted on the can thing. That sounds like fun as well.
    Thanks,

    I got a problem with shooting anything in the air with a rifle in todays world! Too many people around anymore, in most areas. It would be OK in an area where you know you are the only person within miles of where you are shooting. Shotguns are a total different thing. I saw Patrick Flanigan (on tv) do the can of water trick with his Mossberg, and it worked very well.

    I want to shoot it with my Snake Slayer. I'll shoot the bottom can with the .45 Colt and the one in the air with .410 bird shot.

    Not yet, but I hope to tomorrow. That is if I can figure out how it works. I'm talkin about the can thing.

    It's easy Donnie! Just fill a can with water, and place an empty can on top. Shoot the bottom can, and the water will drive the empty can into the air so you can shoot it with the bird shot!

    Thanks. I know this will sound like a dumb question, but is the lid completely removed from the bottom can?
