What is Plinking?
Plinking is when you shoot guns at various items like
tin cans, bottles and things you find on the ground. It's a form
of informal target shooting that people do for fun. Plinking
gets it name from the sound the bullet makes when it hits a can
or other hard object. The sharp metallic sound sounds like a
"plink". Any gun can be used for plinking. The most common
caliber used for plinking is the .22 caliber long rifle because
they are inexpensive, don't make a loud sound when they go off
and are less powerful than larger calibers.
