Make some ballistics gel, and shoot at it. Its fun and you can tell how powerful your gun is.

set up a lighter with an elastic holding down the valve, and keep it lit downrange, then shoot at that

If saying that is against the rules sorry, I don't even know it just sounds like it could be.

Also you could try just making better ammo and shooting at harder stuff.

I like to shoot lead fishing weights of all types. My favorite so far are the sinkers; I can get them to go through plywood even with my crappy little ball-valve pneumatic.

The larger ones would need a lot of pressure though...

I also shot a homemade wooden dart through a plank just to prove that I could. That was rather fun...

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Old computers, TVs, pumpkins, 2 liter bottles of soda, DVD players, etc etc.

Just use your imagination go to the junk yard and look for stuff you can get a weekend of fun for under 20$ depending on what you get.
