    • 1994, Diana Kappel-Smith, Desert Time: A Journey Through the American Southwest (page 98)
      Game wardens anywhere know about "plinkers" — those gun-toting folks, mostly urban, young, and male, who will shoot at anything that moves. In the deserts, urban centers are growing. Plinkers are legion.
    • 1991, Missouri Conservationist (volume 52)
      Plinkers, also called gallery shooters, don't need a formal shooting range for their sport. They shoot at things that respond. Many plinkers pick out a can or piece of charcoal to set on a spot with a safe background, then try to knock it down []
