Old eyes often lead to new creative solutions. The Bullseye AmmoCan seems to be just such an innovation. Would you shoot more if you didn’t have to do as much walking to the target? How much time would you save by being able to shoot a target, virtually mark each shot, color code each group or string, and save the data for later review—all from the shooting bench? How much would you save by not needing a spotting scope? Do you hate the long wait times between line breaks at your local range?

Shooting at bullseyes and zombies can get old and expensive, especially if you want to spend a full day out plinking. Homemade targets are fun, easy, and cheap to make. Many moons ago, I had access to a lot of land in the country. As my shooting buddies and I went to explore it, we found the perfect spot to set up a shooting range.

For target backstops and stands, we obtained free wood pallets from a friend’s bar. Out there we shot fruit, beer bottles, soda cans, electronics, plastic water bottles filled with water, and whatever else we could get our hands on.
I took a defensive pistol clinic a while ago and using a full-sized 9mm Glock, we shot at a shooting diagnostic target.

With gas, energy, groceries, and guns and ammo prices increasing, but salaries staying stagnant, all of our priorities are shifting.
I finally got a chance to spend a long and leisurely afternoon at the range this weekend with the Birchwood Casey Dirty Bird game targets. There are four choices, Battle at Sea, Shotboard, Saloon Shootout, and Chip Shot.
