I'd say I've shot up about anything that can be found in a house and cars, and trucks are old hat. Then again we attempt to make training as realistic as possible so make up our own "Hogan's Alley" during qualifications. The oddest target was the plastic Martian bad guy in neon green. He appeared just behind a poster of Jane Fonda to test the professionalism of the Vietnam vets. Growing up on the farm there were lots of "targets of opportunity" and I couldn't even begin to list them. Milkweed pods, thistle heads, wasps and hornets are about the most exotic I shoot now for which I use a BB gun. I'll still plink cans a little with the .22, occasionally the .17, or a pistol of some sort but not often. Most of my shooting now is for a reason and just plinking does not allow for serious interpretation of loads or skill.

I guess its kind of odd, but when the grandson comes out, I take charcoal briquettes and tie them to a horizontal wire in front of the shooting berm, and let him "blow em up" :D Helps to keep them interested. :D

Heres your list and my comments on each one:

psx - what is this?
old pc - especially if it dies on you while ur doing your taxes online
toilet paper roll - just make sure ur not using it while shooting it (?)
old lawnmower - just make sure no ones using it while you're shooting it
wrecked car - just make sure no ones sleepin' in it when shooting it
bee hives - just make sure no bees are in it, otherwise... ouchy :shock:
stop signs - just make sure ya come to a complete stop first FYI
baby bottle - just make sure baby isn't using it
diapers - just make sure baby isn't wearing it
microwave oven - set it to "high" then blast away
washing machine - set it to "spin" cycle then blast away
cow carcase - set it to "dead & stinking" then blast away
padlocks - if you no longer have the keys for it, why not?
bricks - as long as they are not holdin' up the trailer, why not?

Best thing I ever shot was a Panasonic 13" TV with my 12 guage Remington 870. Grammy was peeved because she never found out who killed who on 'General Hospital'. :lol:
