How to make metal targets for under a pound

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

After watching Davys fantastic post the other day and him shooting them really cool metal crow and rat targets i decided to make some for myself to use in the indoor range to test my scope cam out now that the adaptor as arrived.

 

I wanted to keep the cost down as much as possible so here is my talk through so other shooters can easily make the targets too.

 

1. All you need is old metal coat hangers

 

2. Some old scaffolding planks or heavy wood to use as the target bases.

 

3. Some old spoons

 

4. A drill and metal bit, 2 pairs of pliers and some wire cutters.

 

Drill a hole in a spoon right at the end as in the photo

 

Twist the spoon using the 2 pairs of pliers

 

Cut and straighten the coat hanger before making it into the shape in the photo

 

Drill 2 holes in the wood at each end to fit the wire into.

 

Feed the spoon into the wire and then fit the wire into the wood.

 

Job done.

 

The photos will speak for themselves.

You couldent hit one of them at 100 meters and film it :tongue2: they look good zini :thumbs: and if cut out the wooden block and stick the wire straight into the ground you could make them in about 2 mins.

Blimey. If I took my rifle to work they have the City of London shut down in 10 minutes and a sniper on every building!

Hi Sib,

 

Thats the perks of working on a military camp mate where you have miles of permission to shoot over :whistling:

 

So when you making the journey up Sib to shoot some North Yorkshire vermin?

 

I will need a new job in 3 years time Sib so am counting on you finding me a good one at your place :thumbs:

Si,

 

I am going to try to get up there in March or April depending on how I can organise my business trips.

 

I should think you've got a potential future in pest control or airgun courses/days out etc
