My Dad mounted the squirrel targets on a 4 x 6 piece of pine andgave it to me so I had something other than paper targets to shootat.At 25 yards I am finding that some pellets are penitrating the 1/2 inchrubber squirrel targets and some are bouncing off. Is it the angle or the pellets I am using?Attached File  DSC00926.JPG   130.62KB   46 downloads

Eye Protetcion, Eye Protection, eye protection!!Rubber targets havd a tendency to shoot back!!It's probably your angle, I have seen 7.62x39 rounds skid off of a rubber department store maniquin head. Some rounds went right through it.We were standing in the same spot, it really didn't make sense but it just happened.Ron

  • Interests:Hunting is all new to me but it has over come fishing. with my bow i can do it all. but now that i got my air rifle, that i will only use for birds, (my arrows ruined to much meat.) i can now embark on a new found interest. HUNTING and the outdoors. besides that i just play videos games and hang out with friends. Spend time at the local watering holes.

Oh Yeah, i had one of those dolls with the stuffed body and rubber head and arms setup as a target. didn't take much before i switched. i also quit shooting at empty soda cans the shrapnel would hit just about everything. good job though good practice for when the little critter shows himself.

I bought one of those little rubber squirrel targets too. The problem with mine is that it got so many pellets stuck in the head that the weight of the lead won't let it pop back up anymore.
