    Target Practice at Night???

    Do you guys have any way to practice at night? I'm not having much luck getting it done during the day.

    Park your vehicle behind you with the lights shining on your target.
    You can see you pins well and the target too.
    I had to do this once and it worked well

    30 foot pole with light and a portable light. I can shoot to 40 yards like this

    I did it once with an extension cord and a lamp. The much simpler thing to do is secure a flash light somewhere to shine on your target and if possible buy a light for your sight. The only issue with shooting at night is misquito's.

    I am in the process of building a target shed right now at the back of my property. It will house the targets to keep them out of the weather and sun, act as a back stop and it will have lights for night shooting. Last night I finished putting together a 16' tripod stand in the opposite corner of the back yard from the target shed for up to 50 yard shots. I hope to finish everything this weekend.

    Go to Lowes,Walmart, or Home Depot are buy a solar powered flood light($15-20). Place it 3 ft from the target off to one side. It works like a champ.

    Here's 2 for $20.00 at Walmart.
