#1488: Starget

Clay pigeon shooting can be a bit of a let-down. Most of the time you miss, but even when you do manage to smash a clay, it’s not exactly visually rewarding.

Today’s invention is a small disc of firework material which can be attached, using adhesive backing, to a clay pigeon.

When this is hit, the shooter and his/her audience see a coloured flash in the sky.

The discs could be made in different colours and sizes so that the colour and extent of the flash indicate the degree to which a shot was on-target.

The approach also has the benefit of comminuting the clay debris even more finely, so that there may be marginally less damage to the local environment.
