With all the interest in the .22 tactical matches I thought it might be a good idea to try to come up with some cool targets. You can check here for some info http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=657544#Post657544.
I would like to hear your ideas if there might be somthing you would be interested in.
Did some testing on them today. I'll post a video later. I'll keep you updated with my testing. (ADDED VIDEO)

I don't have any problem with shooting at human silhouettes but I have visions of a RF version of the classic silhouette game (chicken, pig. turkey ram) using a variety of positions rather than all standing. It might start standing at 25 yd. with head shots at squirrels, and end with prone shots at 100 yd. at prairie dogs. Target size would need to be adjusted to make difficult shots at each range because you wouldn't want speed to be an important a factor. You want the precision of the more stable shooting positions to be important.

The squirrel target could be a post with squirrel head targets that extended from the back like the critter was looking around the tree trunk. Hitting the head would swing it back indicating a hit. Prairie dog or "gopher" targets could just be knock down targets.

Feel free to take this Idea and run with it if it sounds interesting to you, but keep me in the loop as I may come up with more ideas and would like to see what happens.
