I find shooting paper targets to be most rewarding.

I find it's all about bullet placement.

Well, I'm not an AR-15 fan, but I do love a warm semi-auto.

I like to shoot at bricks. They make a nice "poof" when you hit them.

Binary targets make a huge boom when they are hit. I love to feel the shock wave

Otherwise I just shoot at paper.

Here is the link to the binary targets. A freind of mine buys them by the case They are mailed by regular USPS as they are inert until mixed together.

Believe me when I tell you they are they most fun you can have while shooting with your clothes on.

Takes a high powered rifle to set them off. A 22 or .22 mag won't do it. A 223 will do it fine .

Sorry

www.tannerite.com/

Also found this on the web. It is not on the above website so I don't know if it is true or not. I would contact Tannerite and see. These things are truly a thing of wonder.

I know it. I bought one from my freind for $8.00. It is worth it to do once. The concussion has been known to flip a cat over on its back about 30 yards away.

I like to shoot raw eggs. Cheaper by the dozen and they explode real nice. Hang from wood with tape. Happy shooting!

Hey Piggy,
Better not let LTS hear ya about flippin' cats on their backs. He'll likely corner the market

I go to "Toledo Torch" and get all their unrepairable propane tanks and turn 'em into swiss cheese with my SAR-1 AK-47! :D

Tennis balls are not bad. I live near a court and a large number of them find their way over my fence every day. Easy to clean up after a day of shooting too!

Aerosol cans of any kind are always fun and maka big boom!!
wifes old hairspray, spray paint...etc..

and for you accuracy buffs, try a bic lighter at 100yrds + .

If you want to see damage results from diff calibers try using a milk jug filled with water frozen solid. that's also fun!

Liberals are few and far between out here in West Texas..so they have added a bag limit. Next Fall I'm afraid that they will make you purchase a 'liberal tag'. Maybe some other states would be willing to tranfer some of theirs down this way so that we won't run out.:D

islenos, they're in season all year here in Austin and they're breeding like rabbits too. Some of us need help thinning the herd. :p

well, as of lately I know the Warbler is protected, since I can't hike on the 50 bajillion acres of land designated as a Warbler refuge. I found one designated spot and after 2 dozen trips there, I've yet to see the stupid bird.

Liberals are protected during the majority of the year, but occasionally go on season with the Democrat representatives ditch their job responsibilities for their New Mexico hideouts when they don't get what they want. Nobody around to protect the Austin liberals then.. :D

We shoot at old lawnmowers when they are available and occassionally a car or at least its brake rotors :cool:
My old car has been sitting at an apartment complex I lived at previously for 3 years now. The engine is trashed and I've had no inkling to fix the bugger. I would love to talk my buddy into hauling it to his farm for target practice.. :cool:

A friend of mine had purchased 500 acres north of Austin (around Marble Falls), and was in the process of clearing out the cedar so he could run cattle on it. The ranch was adjacent to a State natural area where there are bird watching stations, etc.

The State made him stop clearing cedar because it was endangering the golden cheek warblers. He fought it as best he could, but he lost. Ended up having to sell the 500 acres at a loss.

Damn liberals!
