Step 1: Materials

First things first gather your materials.
Materials:

Cardboard or Foamboard
Zip Ties
Duct Tape (optional)
Airsoft Gun
Airsoft BB's
Paper Target
Push Pins
Sharpie
Serrated Blade or Xacto Knife
Garbage Can (with handles)
Ruler
Pencil
Scissors

Step 2: The Cardboard

Sorry I forgot to take pics of this step but it's fairly simple. First lay your cardboard on the ground. Then lay your garbage can ontop of it but upside down. Finally use your sharpie to trace the shape of your garbage can onto your cardboard (include the handels).

Step 3: Cutting

Now use your knife to cut it out.

Step 4: The Handles

Okay heres where the duct tape comes in. I used it to strengthen the handles then I use my knife to cut a small hole for the zip tie.

Step 5: The Target

First print off one of the targets from the websites I provided in the intro. Then cut it out with a pair of scissors. Lay it on the center of your cardboard and using penciltrace it. Measure 1" inwards at all four corners. Connect the dots and go over them in sharpie. Erase the pencil and cut out the square. Finally use the push pins to attach the target to the cardboard.

Step 6: Attachment

This is easy. Simply push the zip tie through the hole in the duct tape and cardboard around the handle and into the other end of the zip tie. Then repeat it on the other side.

Step 7: Target Practice

Now just lay your garbage can target on it's side and start shooting. The BB's should go through the paper target rebound off of what is now the back of the garbage can hit the cardbourd and then just roll around a little. Have Fun

I’m new at airsoft and I only have the Beretta 90two! Any really good guns that are cheap?

hey everyone. I'm new into all this airsoft things. I was wondering what would the best airsoft pistol would be that could fit in your pocket

i would say the p311 spring pistol. it probably woudln't fit in your pocket snugly but best pistol

well ive got the galaxy g1a just over 200 fps its reallly small full metal and comes with a silencer

airsplat.com has a gas colt .25 for $20 that shoots over 200 FPS

i highly reccomend a stinger p-30. these are cheap, can be very accurate, reliable, and in general very easy to use and fun.

dude, spend the money and get an AEG airsplat.com has some nice ones for under $100, and if you're willing to go higher, you could get a tokyo marui or classic army for less then $250

for 15$ you con geet a colt 25. it'l fit in your shirt pocket, it's smalle than your hand, and 141 fps (feet per second). just so you know your average spring pistol would be about 200. You could also get a stinger p32 pistol, it's 200 fps for the same price and the clip holds fourteen rounds also comes with a holster and 500 cammo 6mm .12g bbs DO NOT BY ANY CYMA GUNS!!! THEY SUCK AND BREAK EASILY!!! some good airsoft brands: classic army, crosman, jin gong, marushin, & tokyo mariu.
