Someone shot a cell phone.

Personally, I have shot a running video camera. Unfortunately I don't have the footage. I'm not sure it it actually exists. If it does it's in Kentucky.

(And no, it was not the target. It was the ammo.)

a couple beanie babies, a bike pump, and a bag of pretzels. nothing of real value. I will shoot an old cellphone I have from the 80's or early 90's. nothing of real value yet. If your talking targets, that's another story.

The most expencive thing I shot was a 25 mm (1") marble. That works great and has much destructive power.
