    I also like shooting clay pigeons. Place them at different levels on the berm After they break I will shoot at the pieces. I usually take about 10 pigeons. I will also shoot paper for bulls eye shooting. White flyer brand is supposed to be biodegradable.

    I have taken other things as targets to the range. One of my favorites was a pumpkin.

    I envy all you shooters who are close enough to a good outdoor range where you can do this. I have a paper target that has 4 rows of 5 half dollar sized colored circles on it that I place out to about 15 yds. The goal is to hit each circle in one row shooting across, then move to the next row. Some days I am better than others, but I am better today than I was when I started. Thanks Brownie.

    a fun thing to do with multicolor targets is to have a buddy calling a color on you, with or without timer. ignoring the sights while at it, is still better.

    One bright side is I won't worsen the blister on my middle finger that my normal draw would do.
    The bad side is I won't be able to tell if I cured my blister problem with the under cut on the trigger guard.
    Well the range trip turned out to be OK . Pulling the trigger with my middle finger worked out better than expected and almost as well as the normal way , More practice may improve that.
    The only problem I had was drawing . I kept getting my normal grip instead just my ring and pinky fingers.
    Had to slow down and think before drawing and after awhile I was doing much better . Will work on that at home with my laser cartridge.

    Maybe my trigger finger will be OK after a few days and I can go back to my normal way of pulling the trigger but it is nice to know I have another option in case something should happen like this again.

    Have trying to think of something else to use but nothing so far so I keep a bucket of fired shells in my truck to throw on the berm and then pick them up when finished shooting.

    Just had a thought after typing this post.
    Why not buy a bag of used tennis balls at Goodwill and cut them in half. No more problem with rolling.
    Why not u use the very cheap clay birds? Very Orange and visible from 175 yds!
