    Not good for a public or private range, but I once shot a can of spray foam with a 7mm Mag and filmed it with a high speed camera. It was pretty damn cool watching that explode.

    If you have a 460Wby Mag, you can do like my uncle and cousins do .... 1 and 5 gal buckets full of paint.

    I've shot full cans of shaving cream. I got the cheap Barborsol they sell for 1$ a can. I hit one with a 12 ga slug and it exploded in a rush of white mist.

    I would think that any spray can would erupt in a fireball if hit with a fire burning nearby. The goal would be to puncture & incinerate at the same time. Just make sure everyone is a safe distance from the target before shooting. Ending up in a burn unit would really suck. By the way, I have never done this.

    Some ranges,especially indoor ranges may restrict this sort of thing,so be careful.

    Empty toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls hung from a string or piece of yarn. When the tubes get raggedy, we aim for the string/yarn. My grandson has a blast doing this.

    Apart from the polution this causes, have you figured out what paint costs for the average mortal?

    You should try 12 gauge hulls, they are great little .22 targets, and pretty well free at any range where skeet is available.
    Skeet is a sport where you are better to hit half of each bird then completely blast one and miss the other completely.

    The choice is yours, place your faith in the court system and 12 of your peers, or carried away by 6 friends.

    I like to shoot those free AOL trial CD's and wood/tile/marble samples you get at your local Lowes.
