Hi folks, after talking about bb's in another thread, I thought I'd share what my grandson and I use for targets.
We print out basic line drawings of tanks, or draw our own, some on thin printer paper, some on kitchen towel squares, then, to get them held tightly and taunt for easier penetration, we hold our 'drawings' in these;

And I got some of these type of things from my local Poundland to help support them;

I hope you like this idea.

S.O.A.G.
I hope that you are joking about Rat Poison to shut up a noisy dog. Buy the owner a training collar or summat. Never set out to harm pets. That's wrong on so many levels, Doc. Apologies to the OP for my track jump here. I love my Greyhounds. They are family.
regards,
Painless

LOL painless, I thought you knew I had a dog.

I'm not going to get into a big thing, but I've even taken wild animals and birds to the vets, travelled miles to specialist wild animal/bird centres, even caught an escaped ferocious dog that the police wouldn't go near, and taken it to the kennels for them so they had someone to handle it at the other end lol, and I've officially raised a wild Jay (which can talk like a parrot).

So, no, I wouldn't harm an animal, let alone a pet.

But humans on the other hand. . . . .

The joke is that some people call little yappy dogs rats. Another joke is saying a little yappy dog could kill a big dog, by getting stuck in its throat lol.

My motto; Life is too short to be taken serious.

Or is that, "I'm too short to be taken serious. . . ."

The dog the police were scared of was a Rottweiler by the way.

Last week I prowled around my butterfly bushes and was targeting grasshoppers. Actually hit one...just stunned him but it was a hit!

I would never hurt any animals....don't have any anymore anyway....was too hard losing them...they were like losing kids. :|

Hi,
for BB targets, my son and I use a block of wood, (about 6 x 2.5 x .5 ) with 2 small holes drilled next to each other in the centre. Inserted into this is the wire from a coat hanger which has been bent into the shape of a rectangular frame. We then tape an A4 piece of paper to the frame. On the paper we have printed black silhouettes of tanks that we can shoot at.
Cheers

Very good AK.

But I'm like Mr wobbly, a bit tight (his own words, don't make me find where he said it. . . ), line drawings use less printer ink :haha:
