Valentine heart candies, the ones with messages on them are clay birds for airgunners. They explode dust when hit, no clean up. I hot glue them to black paper. I always buy severl bags the day AFTER Valentines Day for dirt cheap.Chunks of drywall also turn to powder nicely.
Field target knockdowns are my favorite. Ya get to see it fall AND hear the clink. Way fun.

Cap, we had something similar to that one in the picture near the coast in Louisiana.  However, our's were solid black.  I would see them on the road as I approached a little fishing community on Vermilion Bay; and also in the salt marsh where I fished along the Bay.
[I sometimes wondered if they would have been good BBQd.]

Can’t post pictures yet. But I built a pellet trapping target box lined with a steel sheet covered in duct seal putty. Once I’m done with paper (clips to the front of the box) I grab the caps from beer and cider and just push them into the putty till they stick.
That little metallic sound when you punch holes in the capsule is just raw endorphins.
Eventually they are either crumpled and half buried in the putty or they get plinked out. Had a glorious session two weeks ago with my home tuned Crosman Storm at 40 yards. I swear I hit target more consistently at longer distance when it’s a cap.
Cheers all, lots of fun ideas here.

I used to like plastic army men but the last few bags I bought are a more brittle plastic so they're only good for one shot (they shatter when hit).

Now I like to buy vinyl finger puppets and use them for practice.  Only slightly larger than the army men but they'll take a LOT of abuse before needing to be replaced.

I line them up shooting gallery style and see if I can knock each one down with a single offhand shot.

   Army men on ebay, go to Vintage those are the good one's...

I might try shooting some wine corks soon. My stash is overflowing and I have no other purpose for them at the moment. Could probably take a few hits from a lower powered rifle before becoming unusable.

These are a little larger than the plastic version but won't break apart on you.  These targets might be a lot of fun for the more powerful airguns.

Sweet gum balls because I have an unlimited supply and the angles involved mimic hunting situations.

Edit: I just realized I replied earlier. The answer is still the same though. :)
