Hey guys! I've moved my catch box indoors since it's rapidly getting cold. I rolled some tin foil balls for ammo and they worked okay but are really inaccurate, I'm looking for stuff I can fling around my apartment without breaking anything lol.. I don't have pets but I do have a flat screen and large windows over where I'm holding the catch box.

Any pictures and links for indoor ammo if you have them is appreciated, thanks!!

I just saw that SimpleShot is selling some rubber 'ammo'. I'd link you but I think you can find them.

I shoot plastic at my inside range. I used to buy 3/8 slingshot ammo on Amazon. Now I get my ammo on eBay from a company that sells plastic bearings. I've noticed they are cheaper and more durable. I like that you can pick the size and amount. I also like that they are white. They are easier to see and so, it's easier to know how to adjust when my shots are off. Here's a link to what I use

As long as you keep your shots in your catch box, there shouldn't be too much ricochet. May bounce off the can. You could always use a paper cup or something that absorbs the impact a little more as a target.

I was going to suggest the same thing...and. i am ordering some for my self soon. Also the hard plastic.

Both are white and hence easier track in flight and find later.

Thanks very much for the suggestion and the link that seems like a great idea!

You my girl are a brave shooter! That glass wouldn't last two days around me. Maybe you could suspend an old sheet just behind your box? PVC, two TEEs, two 90s, and a hacksaw to cut it. No glue so you could take it down. Just thinking....
I was thinking the same thing. Just about any ammo you use will break glass if you happen to miss the catch box.

I shoot in my basement with smaller steel ammo and shoot next to my sliding glass doors. I made a back drop from an old comforter, just in case. It was 18 degrees when I got home this evening, sure wish we could get some of that Global Warming!!!
very helpful thank you
