PEEPs take quite a bit of abuse, especially if you find out dated ones.

Jeff AKA: Privateer introduced me to those. ;)
Another fun target made from food is the CHEAP ($2.97?) animal crackers 🦒 🦔 🦓 in the bag.  Lots and lots to shoot, surprisingly tough and donít taste all that great so you wonít be tempted to eat all of them before you shoot them but you can should you desire.  I just leave the pieces for the critters to eat or break down.  Itís just one of many options available from WallyWorld.

My favorite cheap food target (biodegradable)  is still the Utz Cheese Balls
 Big tub for $6 at Wal mart... even less when on sale at the Farm Store.

Ha ha!  Assuming you are referring to the animal crackers. 

Iíll eat a few to be sure but I think my preference is for the ones I used to have as a kid, the ones that came in the box that looked like a circus train car or something like that.  They could be plain or the frosted ones with colorful sprinkles on them.  Sort of nostalgic tastebud programming I guess.  Ha ha!

Anybody remember those?

Rambo and I will eat a handful and then he will stare at me until I pour him a drink of my milk in a bowl.
I keep a ziplok bag of those or some other type snack cracker/cookie on my side table by my recliner.
At least once a day he will come sit in front of me... his eyes shift from me to the bag.

Anyways.... back on topic...
I've been on a pumper bb gun kick last few days. Yesterday was a 2200 magnum with .22 roundballs and today at lunch I picked up the PowerMaster 66. I have several others that I have neglected for a year or more. I plan to revisit those in the near future.

A few in my house but not the sugary kind.... those things are nasty even when fresh.
Only good marshmallow is a toasted one over a fire.

I'm not a PEEPS fan either, but a couple of years ago, I got a hold of something like sour watermelon. It wasn't half bad.

My kids are living at home with us right now.  Peeps or animal crackers wouldnít last five minutes around the ravenous hoard.  They even ate the awful Dollar General dog training cookies my wife buys!
I shot the tops off some cattails back at the fish pond with my RIM. 16gr Air Arms domes at 40 yards.  Iím pretty proud of those shots!  ;D

73*F at 1600 hrs! I changed carts in the XS60C and the QB78D and put about 25 pellets through them at 20m. 10 shots each at the squirrel and 10 shots each at their own spot and a few extra shots on steel. Then I took out the Octane Elite and shot steel at 30m with the CPDUMs, CPHP and some JSB 15.89gr. Really windy, 18-28mph, tried to keep an eye out for the windicator.

I shot the Wildcat probably for the last time.  I sold it.  😕

Iím AM happy for my buddy that bought it.  He is pumped! 

I also shot my Royale 400.  Gonna keep that one ☝️.  I shot it at about 18 yards standing rested on a trigger stick tripod.  I was pretty amazed at how accurate I was shooting like that.  Itís just getting the wobble timing down to break the shot.  Later, after cutting one of the boys hair, I shot at steel eggs and cardboard standing offhand.  Just 14 pellets worth.  I used the red light mounted on the front pic rail to illuminate the target.

Thinking about letting the Streamline go....  so if anyone is interested PM me.  😁

I guess the best thing I didn't shoot today was my chronograph even an air gun can hurt one.

More cattail eradication with my RIM.  With the 16gr AA domes it is like a laser out to forty yards or so.
