    Nice, thanks. An order for the SOG has been placed. Low cost, hard to damage in any permanent manner.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I, too, like to keep the neighbors desensitized to any shenanigans. It keeps the complaining down.

    I wonder if the neighbors would notice a really large backstop in my yard?

    If you were my neighbor & I did notice, I'd ask if I could come over to play at your house.

    Spot on.

    Most yards in our neighborhood have a backstop of some sort or another. We like to rotate yards to see who has best Grill food and beer.

    I saw 4-6 inch thick cottonwood rounds as big diameter as can and hang from target stands for Mrs bo to throw knives and darts at.

    Probably. Don?t let that deter you though. Just wave and smile, if they try to engage you in conversation tell em to come on over. That?s always worked for me. They never come over, and I keep doing whatever it was that grabbed their attention...

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    I stood up a backstop this morning with a couple of log rounds hung on it. My wife figured it out pretty quick after we found a good distance for her.

    The cheap lightweight SOG throwers I bought stick well, and were very approachable for a new thrower.
