Default Found a use for my mountain of boxes..

My throwing knives should arrive tomorrow, decided to turn my boxes into a target. Not sure how well the knives are going to stick, but it can stop and hold a BB from a C02 gun in the first few pieces of cardboard. I've got 4 pieces of cardboard, then some Styrofoam cushion, then 4 more pieces.

What in the world do you need throwing knives for?

I think your throwing knives are going to be on the floor more then in that cardboard.

We will see... the throwing knives I ordered are pretty light, so I'm hoping they stick.

I got them because it'* actually a decent workout if you throw them for a half hour or so. A good way to relieve stress as well. A friend of mine has a set that I was messing around with. My arm was sore for a week afterwards, so maybe I will stretch before I try them out. :P

A well balanced throwing knife will stick in that good! I have a pellet gun that I can bring over, but that cardboard and styrofoam won't stop the pellet!

The knives I bought are supposed to be very well balanced. Once I learn them I'm thinking I can get enough velocity to get a good stick.

Do you have one of those green gas pellet guns or something? I've seen some that pack quite a punch...
