View Full Version : Short video of my homemade air gun galery in my yard

05-08-2015, 10:57 AM
I had sent this video to a member here during a PM conversation and thought I'd share it here too. I made this gallery from a gifted galvanized steel firewood bin, scrap aluminum plate, stainless steel spoons from the Dollar Store and various rods and things I had laying around in the shop. The red paint is from a leftover farm implement painting job before I got hurt. It weighs probably 175 pounds and sets on concrete blocks now. Hours of suburban back yard fun for my entire family. $10 total investment in parts. Thanks for looking. Oh. I have a DIana 34 in .177 scoped with a 3-9 Hawke, an English made Webley Stingray in .22 with a Bushnell scope, and for old time's sake, a Benjamin .22 pneumatic from Walmart with aftermarket Williams peep sight. Love them all, and yes, they've accounted for many marauding garden pests. Don

Nice set-up you have! Good times for the family don't have to be expensive to be entertaining.

Thanks for sharing. The spoons are genious. If you added some shooting action going on I could probably watch that video for an hour.

That a nice set-up
thanks for giving me a new project for when the
grand kids come by, and I'm sure poppy will be
putting many into it himself:D

Excellant. You have sound and exploding crackers. Outstanding.

Don I watched your vid on the shooting gallery. It is a pretty neat shooting gallery.

The video that came up directly after your video on Youtube was shooting Iguanas in Puerto Rico.

It seems that they have a pretty big problem with Iguanas in PR as they have no natural predators. they were brought in as pets and went ape kind of like the hogs here have . There was one they shot that was 6 feet long and weighed 30 lbs! That's serious lizard. All shot with Airguns.

Then they BBQ'd them. Tastes like chicken?

I now have a reason to go to PR other than to see J LO!

And shattered crackers draw in the starlings. (!) Don
