It's giveaway time again, and this one is aimed at the newer members of our community! For this contest, I want to see some serious recycling, (if there ever was such a thing haha) and that means cans cans, and more cans! Bean cans, Soup cans, pop cans, beer cans, heck I'll even take some long-distance coffee cans LOL! The idea here is to Rack yourself up a tally, everything will be on the honor System. Rules are simple from the time you finish reading this post until October 15th, I want you guys shredding cans like they're going out of style. This Thread is going to get pic heavy, as I want the running tally being kept by the shooters. Each killed can requires a picture with the frame used, you can have as many dead cans in one picture as you want, but those ones are now accounted for and obviously will count no further. So for example if your first photo shows 5 dead cans, you're 2nd shows 5 dead cans then your third one with five cans would say that you're up to 15 and so on. He who smashes the most Cannery will be declared the winner! I have a feeling they are going to be some guys rifling through their neighbor's recycling LOL! Really this contest is open to all, but I really would like help out our new shooters with becoming comfortable in our little cult haha. No restrictions on frames, slings, or ammo - no trebuchets allowed!

Winner will recieve a WASP Delta Wing & a variety pack of premade bandsets by me. :)

So what are you waiting for, finish your drink, rinse out that can and blast the sucker in half! Happy shooting guys, looking forward to seeing the mountains of foil you create from those cans! ;)

Thanks matt! I just thought of a side rule I'd like to add, forever Bean can you cut that counts as five soda / beer cans. If you ever cut a bean can than you know why, if you haven't you should give it a shot!

Happy shooting!

Cool giveaway!! This could get expensive here in Michigan as cans are valued at 10 cents each, but the sound of nailing that can is well worth it.
Thanks man! Im hoping this will get some poepe thinking avout recycling, best way when all you can think about is how to get your hands on more cans lol!

My effort from yesterday 5 soda cans. I started on a large tin thinking the large target would be nice but gave up after a short while. That thing would have taken forever.

Im really enjoying this, its really made me focus on my accuracy, particularly on my elevation which has been all over the place. That last shot to complete the cut can be challenging, and is so dang satisfying when you get it.

Im shooting from 10m.

Great work waimser, that puts you in the lead! & youre right about those bean cans theyre tough thats why I said anyone who cuts one gets 5 cans haha. :)

I too love shooting cans for accuracy. Some folks dont see the benefit but the way I look at it, you start out with a large target that gets trickier the more damage it takes - not many targets that can do that. Amp it up by using red bull cans, hanging it on a long string so the slightest breeze pushes it around and back off to 15m. I find it very simalar to shooting doves off branches and its A LOT of fun especially with big ammo like marbles.

Sling on gentlemen, it stands:

Covert5: 2
MIsling: 1
waimser: 5

A great start! :)

Haha, nice. I managed a few cans over the last few days, I need to get pics up when I find time.

These couple weeks crept up on me and I realised I'm moving house on Wednesday. I should have gone all out on the cans while I had the opportunity.

Oh well, I get the fun of setting up a new range next week at least :)
