Is that some special kind of pop top?  They usually stay attached to the can or lid.  Or I can do bottle tops.

HA!  There are enough cans strewn around the roadways that I probably have at least 2 cans within 100' of my mailbox. (slobs)  The cans usually have the tabs attached, but if you bend it back and forth a few times it comes right off.

Did I miss what the 'Giveaway' was in another post?  What are we trying to win??

Here's my entry for the Umarex Pop Top Challenge, shot at 12M offhand with my Hatsan Flashpup .22.  Started with 7 tabs and shot 2 magazines of 12 shots each and had my best shooting offhand ever!  Not only did I hole two of seven I pushed four others through the paper and dented one of those four with a previous shot!  Had some fliers but I'm seriously happy with my results!

My entry (embarrassing) 7 shots (was 5 but I had two fliers and took two extra shots)  Distance: 10M  Airgun: Beeman P17, Pellets: Crosman wadcutter pellets,  with old eyes, no optics, open sights, shooting off sandbags.
Shot 1. high right
shot 2. NAILED IT (figures I'd nail the RedBull pop top)
Shot 3. (so excited about shot to, pulled it)  Low right
Shot 4. re-composed and got it in
Shot 5. slightly right (call'n it a hit)
Shot 6. (what the heck?) WIDE RIGHT
Shot 7. (That's better) bottom edge

Well I hope this will be ok. ?

Marauder .177 shot off bench @ 35 yards

All shots were at opening except the one ďproper ď hit. Chickened out On 2nd can as real gusty winds were rolling in.
May try another day with the .22 Gauntlet.
