I used a mini tramp. Now before you go calling AMPLAS (Anti Midget Prostitute Legal Assistance Society) I mean one of those little bitsy trampolines people exercise with. I took off two of the legs, wedged that end under a hook above and wedged the bottom legs against a 2 x 4 I nailed in at about 9 feet off the ground. If you throw it properly it will bounce gently off the trampoline and bounce back to you. If you throw short it hits the bottom the the tramp and comes back in your face. If you throw too shallow it gets a poor bounce and comes back all wonky and hard to catch.

Minus the tramp, a taped X on the all works just fine as would a carboard cutout of Osama.

AMPLAS. That's some funny stuff.

Word of caution to the wall-ballers out there-

Make sure that there is no ceiling close to your target. Balls leave a pretty big dent in the ceiling...

Mini Tramp $40 bucks at Sports Authority.

Excellent idea.

I just use a basketball backboard.

Awesome Hemingway quote, Eugene.

Check out the red box over Evas right shoulder. Wall ball, and for those at the cert, a flashback.

I just bounce the thing off one of the rafters in my basement (about 9' or so).

I always thought a "baby moon" style hubcap would be an ideal target for promoting accuaracy. Being a perfect convex surface any error in accuracy would be amplified. I have not mounted one yet however.
They should be available at any used hubcap dealer found near the salvage yards.
