    I have half a dozen, but I can double that if I empty all the guns
    And there should be more by October.

    i know how it is Paul, with the airsoft the co2 seems to take a bit of a sideline

    Am a fan of recycling and re-using (or not using in the first place if possible! Lol!). This is a fab idea in every way! I'm up for being a volunteer collection point in my town (Scarborough). Look forward to seeing this develop.

    Question

    Empty pellet tins make good targets, reacting well when shot, only downside is the sharp edges. Would they be able to weighed in that condition? That way on the green thing they have been used three times before being melted.

    A great idea.. weigh them in and proceeds go to charity. But don't forget, empty CO2s make useful targets. As they still weigh the same after being shot to shit, they can still be sold for scrap afterwards.

    I stick mine in the local church's can recycling bank, they weigh a bit so must be of more value than coke cans and they get the cash for it, thats my seat in heaven reserved!
