This is an old lamp I shot rapid fire at about 3 yards. It's 4 shots and all penetrated the shade. Not bad grouping for wax. They were fired from my Montado.

Well, I had never heard of a wax bullet so I looked it up. Rich and I could practice inside of our garage using wax bullets and they're cheap too. Thanks BH.

Be careful I think you will find that it is illegal to discharge a firearm in the city.

Without powder it's just a cap gun. That's my story. :?

I have known about wax bullets for years, but have never tried them. Bill Jordon was a big advocate of using them for practice in his book "No Second Place Winner."

They're awesome for point and shoot practice, but they mess up the barrel big time. I had a hell of a time cleaning out the wax. :lol:

I thought about doing that, but figured it would make it harder to get out. I used a brass brush and some patches and some solvent.

In a basement I don’t think the people next door would complain, in the garage I don’t know? All the homes are very close together were she lives. Now I shoot rubber bullets {primer only} in my garage and tell the people next door before I do it. Have shown them what I am shooting so they don’t worry that I mite have finely went off the deep end. :lol:

Rubber bullets? Can they be used over and over? What about a silencer - like they use in the movies?

Yeah you never know when a neighbor will complain, but I don't know if it's legal or not. :|
