    My diy version made from bits in the shed. Tested it with the 22 at 25 yards and all good. It spins like a whirling dervish (whatever that is), so should keep the kids happy

    Welded would be better than the bolt arrangement of course, and obviously it is screwed into a fence post or what ever, not just sitting as in pic

    I am actually struggling to find places to put them for a safe shot. May have to get the chainsaw out

    Mine is a bit simpler but spins really well wired to the fence wire.

    How often have you cut the wire with a round?

    I've done it a few times when not even aiming at the fence

    Only use .22 subs at it and haven't had any issues yet.

    Just tested them at 60 yards with 22 mag.
    Think they will be restricted to 22 and below as the steel is not very tough
