With Reactive Pistol Targets You Learn Faster
Marksmanship is a challenging skill to master and our quality pistol targets can make that easier to accomplish.. It takes hours of practice to develop proficiency but you will get there faster using our reactive targets. Read on to learn why. The key is maximizing the effectiveness of the training time. Think about your last trip to the range. How much time was spent mounting and repairing traditional paper targets?
Did you get instant feedback on your shots? Or did you have to traipse up to the target to see where the impact landed? Think about it carefully. You will find that you spent a significant amount, perhaps even a majority, of your range time dealing with these mundane tasks. Every hour on the range not spent aiming in, zeroing your weapon or firing at your pistol targets is time wasted. If you can make the majority of your range time productive your marksmanship and confidence is going to increase. So what can you do? Come to the range prepared. Do not leave preparatory chores to the last minute. Steel targets are much more effective at increasing your shooting ability.
Maximize Your Efficiency When Using Pistol Targets
Make any adjustments that are needed on your weapon before you arrive to the range. Make sure that it is clean and your ammunition is either in the magazine or handy to load. You must maximize the productivity on the range to improve your weapon handling. Remember, gun control is hitting what you aim at. Pistol targets are traditionally made of paper and hung in a frame or glued to cardboard backing or cheesecloth. The problem this presents is that it is very difficult to see the hole from the impact. Unless you are exceptionally sighted, you will have to walk to the target to see how your aim is improving.
Even a spotting scope will not provide the resolution to see where your groups have landed on your handgun targets. A scope for long range pistol targets is a cumbersome piece of equipment on a pistol range anyway. That means you will have to take a walk. These trips back and forth are time wasted that could better be spent putting more rounds down range.
More rounds provide the opportunity for improvement. Improvement is what the range is all about. There is a solution to this range problem without the expense of installing a fully manned range. Metal pistol targets have significant advantages over the traditional paper targets. The first and primary advantage is that they provide instant feedback.
When your round hits there is a visual spark and movement from the impact. There is an audible indication when the round impacts the metal. This makes these reactive shooting targets much more effective than zombie targets or standard nra targets.
It’s the Noise And Movement That Makes Our Pistol Shooting Targets Great
A hit on our pistol targets will ring like a bell. In addition, the target will move. There will be no doubt in your mind that a hit was registered. The second advantage is metal targets are durable. They will not run in the rain or tear in the wind as paper targets are prone to do. You can unload on them all day and they will not require repair. The time that you spend pasting up the holes in your paper targets is unproductive. Repairing paper pistol targets is not going to make you a better marksman. The only thing that will do that is more rounds, more often. Going to the range will become more productive and enjoyable after you switch to metal pistol targets.
Productive and enjoyable means that you will spend more time practicing. More time practicing will improve your marksmanship. Punching holes in targets is not the goal of improving your marksmanship. It is a tool to increase your confidence. If you are sure you can hit what you aim at then you will become a more effective marksman. An effective marksman is confident in his ability to put his weapons to any use required. Whether you are practicing for home defense or hunting or other sports practice is the key. Metal targets will make your practice more productive.
A more productive practice will lead to greater improvement in less time. That is a virtuous, not a vicious, cycle. Elite military formations have used metal pistol targets for many years. While not used on standard known distance ranges they are common in assault training courses, close quarter combat (CQB) setups and military operations on urban terrain (MOUT) training facilities. These soldiers require the most effective training tools possible because the next time they fire the target may fire back. Do yourself the favor of training like the military does. Invest in some quality pistol targets today.
