    Great! this is a good target, but my gun is VERY high FPS, so I fill the cans with
    sand or dirt or water or whatever. If it's filled with water you can see your hits better, and if it's filled with dirt or sand it acts as a pellet trap, too =)

    Basically a good idea, would have like to seen pics and/or video though, preferably of a can getting hit and spinning :) I suggest cutting the cans open towards you to catch the BB's.

    Good idea except the fact that depending on how close you are and the thickness of the can your using it could go straight through, but if your have thicker cans will work better with your idea.

    yea my old red rider used to shot straight through the cans all the time. If you get really bored with your daisy shot shack up a can of soda and then shot it it is a good way to pass time.

    You also need to make sure that there is noting that can get damaged, or injured behind your targets.

    It is a given to experienced shooters. To kids, and others who are setting it up for the first time, it might not come to mind.

    not always kids. most the kids i knw already do tht: the check there backgrounds for anything tht may get harmed in the background. and they are definetly not experienced.
