    I have been using magazines as a backstop for my slingshots for a while as I didn't have a proper cathbox. I was going through the old magazines and found one that had the back cover almost shot completely off. I decided to try and shoot the cover off by shooting the magazine from the front.

    I used my Maxim and the cheap white Trumark marbles. The only casualty, besides the magazine, was one of the marbles.

    Always good to see destruction via plinking. Thanks for sharing!
     

  3. Moin moin,
    Important question here ...
    how many pages clout you reach?

    BeMahony had the trophy the last dusted because it had geschaft on most pages!



    Wichtige Frage dabei...
    wieviel Seiten Durchschlagskraft erreichst du?

    BeMahony hatte den Pokal dem letzt abgestaubt, weil es am die meisten Seiten geschaft hatte!!!

    Each magazine is about 56 pages, not including the cover.

    After taking the back cover off, I continued shooting at this particular magazine for about 30 more shots. I have posted pictures of the aftermath. I only lost four or five marbles to breakage.

    Hey!

    Destruction?- Nice topic!

    After Thorsten kindly introduced me to that, we had a little competition:

    Putting a "Magazine", which was in fact a maybe 600 pages catalogue
    from a DIY Store (the name has got sth. to do with the german word
    for building an the word for house.. it reminds me of an architectural
    "school", kind of a modern one..) on the ground, pressing out the air
    by hand to then DRIVE A 10mm STEELBALL INTO IT AS HARD AS YOU CAN.

    Then open the catalogue and find out which is the first page undamaged..

    I scored (thanks for your tribute, Thorsten!) 330 pages...

    Felt good!- and was a lot of fun (although there was some rather
    uncontrolled ricochets...)

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANOTHER CONTEST!

    Maybe here in Germany? seem to pretty much the center of
    world, asking people around- but maybe there would be too many tears
    if I win again ;) - (Yes, I intend to provoque and bait you :) )

    best regards,

    Be

    Thanks Be, I have found magazines to be a fun target. I have also found out that on a fresh magazine one must be careful of bounce back. It has happened to me a few times. The thickness of the cover also plays a factor. An old Game Informer is easier to shoot up than a Martha Stewart magazine due to the thickness of the cover. The Martha Stewart mag is a lot more satisfying to shoot though (I hate that bitch and think she should still be in prison).

    I had a goal to cut a magazine in half after seeing one I had been using cut 1/3 of the way already. After I finished work for the day I rigged my catch box to hold the magazine to attempt the cut. I used my Scout for the feat and shot 3/8 steel balls.
