If you’re tired of shooting paper targets and are looking for something new to shoot, check this out….

Here’s my Gamo Hornet Maxxim pellet gun and portable bench rest. I love the Gamo Hornet!!!
Here’s the tomato ready to shoot. I always use paper books as a backstop with bricks behind. .22 cal pellet guns are very powerful and you want to make sure the pellets are stopped safely.

Here’s the entry hole.
…and here’s the exit hole. Not much hydrostatic shock at 700 fps.
Here’s the apple before….
…and after. This is the entry hole.
…and the exit. Fruit makes an interesting target and you don’t have to worry about cleanup.
I normally shoot at splatter type targets with my pellet guns but I just ran across something better…. and more fun….
