    I have been shooting at matches lately and have a pile of headless matches to show for it and a grater deal of accuracy. Aim small miss small and all that. I haven't hit the sweet spot just yet and light one im sure i will any day now Though. Haven't tried cutting cards but being that i can fairly quickly disassemble matches it shouldn't be a huge leap. But in the mean time i need something new for a video something really unique. With the show coming up im about to get a lot of Traffic to my youtube channel and i want people that go there to see something awesome and stick around for more. Anyone have any cool ideas they would be willing to share? Ill be sure to link your video if its something you have already dun and give you props.

    Trick shots?

    1. Curved plastic pipe which redirects ammo to hit something obvious like an egg balloon or fizzy (warm up first for optimum explosion) soda can.
    2. Two step target: bic type lighter next to a night candle. Hit bic fuel explodes.
    3. Hit a suspended carton of juice so that it fills a glass tumbler.

    For starters.

    Light a match that in turn lights a firework of some kind.

    Did the lighter with sparklers one already love the Juice Glass idea and the redirect. As well as lighting a match that light something that's a good idea. Maby some day if im good enuf I could bounce a shot that lights a match which punctures a container a vodka that pours out a shot and the match lights it ;)

    Thought I'd do it myself

    The flare was bigger than anticipated but I got it with first shot. In the video I filmed the shooting afterwards. Not a trick camera.

    If you're looking to shoot at cool things, I'd suggest the following:

    Ice cubes
    Refrigerators
    Snow
    Glaciers
    Ellen DeGeneres

    The german saying for something like that is "Mit Kanonen auf Spatzen schiessen"
    which equals "taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut" in english :D

    I once shot an axe deodorant spray, and it was a blast so to speak. :D

    It really made a big loud boom. And my catchbox have never smelled so "fresh" before haha :p

    I did use a very powerful slingshot and homemade hexnut ammo (a bolt with 2 hexnuts threaded on) for the result.

    Really cool and fun, but beware for shrapnel from the blast.

    Ah yes.

    Shaving foam. That has to be worth doing again. Especially if it's suspended about its midriff. Remove all belongings to a safe distance.

    If I'd got some of Redloesebob's ammo and pierced the side wall it could have been spectacular.

    Old Computers or Televisions should be cool to
    My personal favorite in Summer was a Hunting High Seat at the local Forrest
    About 100m distance down a Hill :)

    My 3 year old tried to "fix" my 42" flat screen with a plastic hammer...needless to say it was not much good as a television after that! But it was a lotta fun driving 3/8 steel through it! Gotta take the good with the bad I guess

    Older CRT televisions, with the glass screens, can take a huge beating... i once flattened a 250fps 12mm lead ball on a Crt screen. Left a mirror finish on the falttened part of the lead ball, screen took no damage.

    Not so unusual but fun once in a while.

    I have no connection with UKCA but found this 10m target. Idea is to score 25 with no more than seven balls. After that it is a knockout. I used ridiculously short dankung loops which felt like I was pulling a car out of a ditch but I can't make longer ones as I'm out of tubes. I could use flats....
