I regularly use hard disk platters for target practice. This has become a
bit of a tradition with my group of 'Redneck Geeks'.
Of course, I only have a Remington .22 SportsMaster (I'm only a resident
after all, I've decided it's not worth attracting attention to myself just
to own weapons).

A single 3.5" platter will usually stop a .22 LR round, but not always,
and not after you've hit it a few times and stressed the metal.

We hang the holed platters into mobiles. Will be useful one day when I
actually have a kid. (Assuming my wife doesn't get all funny about those
sharp edges, she does that now and then)
