    I bought exploding stick on rifle targets / At 100 yds. not much to see.
    They destroy target and needs to be replaced. With big rifle the guns makes to much noise. Not sure why I bought them. I bought two packages. Shot 2 or 3. At this moment I do not no where they are. Likely safe place.You are likely thinking of exploding clay targets. Not sure were to get them. Good Luck.

    I have shot them before and they are way to much fun. I will try to fine the web site for you. They are not cheap. I think they were $80.00 per 24 but as I said they are a lot of fun.

    I beleive I got mine through Midway Inc. You can find them on the net. When you get them fill a gallon jug with colored water stick the exploding target to the front of the jug them shoot it. It's a real howl.

    The web site is working as of 0730 EST 16 December but you need Apple Quicktime installed to see everything on it. You do NOT want that on a PC if you have a choice.

    I purchased a case of them on E-bay about 6 month ago,before they changed their policy so I don't know if you still can.Local Sheriff sure don't like them,neither's they guy who run's the state range here.Oh well,you know what they say if they can't take a joke.

    We make flash targets for trap.We would load one target in a practice or prize shoot round and the person who hit it would get a bonus,be it another practice round on the club or a discount on the next prize shoot entry

    Simply use a standard target and put a tablespoon of colored chalkline dust in the
    recess on the top of the target,spread out evenly and then cover with a piece of
    paper the same color as the target.We found that contact cement worked the best for fastening the paper.

    The targets look the same,fly the same,but when you hit them you know they are not the same.

    Shelley: take a piece of cardboard and draw a circle around a target on it. Turn the target upside down and fill about 1/2 with baby powder. Push the cardboard up into the bottom of the target to hold the powder in. Flys great ( Heavier) and really puts out a cloud when hit! Don

    center fire rifle is the only thing that will set them off.

    When I was a kid and worked at the local trap club (In Buffalo NY.) I used to take a few targets home and fill them with crushed charcoal briquettes then glue thin shirt cardboard to the bottom to hold it in. We had a few "favorite" shooters that we would set them for. Only in practice of course, we didn't want to incur too mucn wrath! They make a black smoke ball about the size of a small car! Very impressive if you get the right shooter who can center a target!

    Merry Christmas!
