I've been having a ton of fun shooting 6mm steels lately and thought it would be fun to start a thread for those among you doing the same or similar. This isn't a contest thread although one might become of it lol.. This is just to show off your small ammo (airsoft,.177 BB's, 6mm steel etc.) setups and what you're doing with them. I myself am punching paper at between 21'-33' with my @MakoPat Colt x 1632 loops, a leather Warrior pouch & 6mm steels.

So what are you guys flinging the little stuff with?

Hi, I'd be interested to know the catapult's height, width, fork gap?

What is holding the steels, exactly?

( I just happen to have a lot of steel BBs for my Umarex TDP-45 mini-Co2-semi-auto pistol. )

Sure, its 5" tall, has a 3" fork width and a 1-1/4" fork gap. Thanks for looking. :)

@MikeyLikesIt you're right its a magnet, & those are some sweet shooters there. Do you try to recover your ammo at all or you look at it as disposable haha? I sort of look at BB's that way unless Im shooting indoors, then theres no excuse not to setup some kind of ammo trap. I want one of those magnetic telescoping 'wands' I see some guys with, would sure take the pain out of searching for bb's by hand or with the handle of my frame lol

I don't worry about the BB's. For the price I can afford to shoot 'em and lose 'em. I do feel a little guilty shooting them in the woods though, so I try to stick to clay pellets out there. I don't want to leave little metal treasures for someone else to find 50 yrs. later. My favorite thing about the BB's is the fact I can take a few pot shots here and there about town. I'm an opportunist shooter, and it helps to have a small frame and non-threatening ammo when shooting in an urban environment with a lot of observers.
I hear that man, thats one reason I like shooting frameless: to Joe Average it just looks so harmless. As for the clay pellets I think you know how much I love those in all their varieties lol, heres one thing I heard of some time back I thought was cool: There was a guy making his clay shot with seeds for a core, and would thus plant trees when out plinking in the woods near his home. He would intentionally use seeds that were both non-invasive & helpful to the local ecosystem, or in an area that was somewhat barren. I can't remember for the life of me where I read this so if someone see's this & knows what I'm referring to please chime in.
