    alot of rural depts use bowling pins.... no joke, they work well.
    This is one of those traditions the that we have used for years, and we're not rural. They do work well and they're cheap. We get spent pins from the local alley for nothing.

    We just use the cheap orange dead-blow hammers from Tractor Supply Co. One or two have broken over the years, but they're generally $10 or so, so no big deal.
