Bowling Pins as targets?
i was thinking of a new target since paper and clay pigeons is getting boring. i wanted metal targets but they are not allowed at my range, then i thought...bowling pins. so i called a few locals places and they have some for sale, are there all basically the same hard plastic shell or are some brands better than others? i will mainly be shooting 9mm and 45acp FMJ, about how many shots will these bowling pins hold up to? can i use FMJ 223 or will that tear them up faster? does the 9mm and 45 get deflected because it is a hard plastic and round in shape or actually penetrate? any other suggestions for different targets would be great.
