    This one doesnt even need pics.
    Paper or plastic sheet+ sewing machine+10 seconds=done

    Just take off the foot or leave it lifted so you can move the sheet at random.

    For those instances where you can't just use the shotgun anyhow.

    I did just discover if you use a broken needle and put your sheet over cardboard you get cleaner holes.

    But I can always shoot my shotgun :D I live out in the sticks.
    Hmmm wonder if my 50 cal at a mile would work LOL Nah hole would be way to big.
    But yes I have some yupo that I shot with bird shot at about 25 yards and that is what I use when I have to do a shot gun blast effect.

    If you get a old hard top cork plug like in some of the shine /wine bottles you can place a lot of needles in it and make the holes faster.

    It only takes 10 seconds by hand anyway.

    Just remember to sand the back to get rid of the little bits of paper that gets rolled over. It will look like this when done.

    You could always use the feeder too and get even spacing for tiny rivets or use a zig zag to do a stencil for stitches, or just to get some dots to use as a guide to evenly space, whatever.
