I bought one of these last week and I have to say that these targets are AWESOME!!!! They are a blast to go out and shoot at....The quality of this product is AMAZING!!!! I was out yesterday with both of my cousins shooting for about 2 1/2 hours and the target took everything we were shooting at it......Even the military surplus Mosin Nagant rounds that are full metal jacket steel core rounds. INCREDIBLE product and will DEFINITELY recommend to EVERY shooter I know!
I bought one of these recently and have to say it is a lot of fun to shoot! The bulls eye reacts nicely and the audible target reaction is very satisfying. My wife and I took this out in the woods and popped it with over 200 rounds from various pistol and rifle calibers (observing the manufacturers recommended distances). I had painted the target with Rustoleum White spray paint prior to shooting and while the paint was gone where we hit the target, there was no pitting, no warping. Repainted and was ready to go again!! Definitely a worthwhile purchase and properly cared for, it should last for generations!
Nice piece for shooting with instant feedback for more accurate hits. Painted the center section a contrasting color to aid in aiming and works great. Only weak point is the bolts, as with a 10 inch target at longer distances, the bolts get hit repeatedly. Ordered a second set of bolts and chains, but with ease of design, replacement will be easy. Understand to mitigate costs, drilling and adding bolts was easiest, but I would be willing to pay more for the target with studs welded to solid back so only the chains are visible when engaging.
I ordered the 10" x 1/2" AR500 Target Gong. It's well designed and of good quality. As far as I know, it's the only place you can get it. I like shootingtargets7.com because of their quality control, their easy ordering, efficient delivery system, and their fair pricing. I wouldn't look anywhere else for quality gongs.
This is the best bang for the buck you can get. Comes with everything. All you have to do is hang it and have some fun. It was shipped pretty fast. The target had some chips on the edges but I don't really care since it is meant to take a beating anyways. I started by shooting at it with 9mm and 40 S&W at about 15 yards. That didn't cause any damage. I then took it to 100 yards and shot it with some 7N6 (5.45x39). It made a few dimples but did better than I was expecting. Over all, I'm very impressed. Pretty sure some of the people at the range and a few friends will be ordering some soon.
We set up a new rifle and pistol range using targets from shootingtargets7.com Of the AR500 1/2" TORSO's, and AR500 1/2" Gongs, this was the favorite of all the targets by my family. They all wanted to shoot this one. I will be ordering more of these along with the new bullseye torso's
I just bought my second bullseye target because all my buddies liked the first one so much. We spent the day shooting 9mm, .40, .45 from about 10 yards and then moved to 100 yards for .223 / 5.56 and even a box of 30-30. Only damage was a few dents from the 30-30. Can't beat the current prices either - I bought the first one full price and was willing to pay that for the second one I was so impressed with the first one. (So added a few other targets since I was already willing to pay the money on one target!)
Recently got this set up at 750yds, makes a very noticeable ring and hits are easily visible on the bullseye. Very durable even on large calibers. I will be getting more to put at other distances.
I thought this target looked interesting online and the price was so good I ordered one. When I got it about 3 days later and held it in my hands I was really impressed . After shooting it long range with rifles I can say it's high quality it held up great . This target. Really is like getting two targets for 1/2 the price of other companies .
Top quality and the buying process was easy. Makes me want to buy again and I would recommend.
There are NONE better! We've been using various targets, including AR500 steel from other vendors, and I won't go anywhere else form now on. These are precision fabricated and flawless. Finding 1/2 inch plate AR500 targets at an affordable price is no longer an Easter Egg hunt. Shootingtargets.com has everything any range needs and we'll continue to add more as the challenges get more complicated. Thanks again for your business!
This target is super durable for .223. The bullseye adds an extra dimension to the target. A different noise and visual for a bullseye. Good sound with .223 but rather a dull thud with 9mm. 3/16 inch targets makes a good ringing sound with 9mm. If you get 2 or 3 you can just go from one to the next and keep on repeating. Lots of fun.
AR500 bullseye target is awesome. I used my weatherby series 2 .257 magnum on it. (recommended manuf. distance) It came with everything you need, just need to hang it on your stand. Very impressed with this. Shooting target 7 has fast shipping. I will be purchasing more in the future so I can have multiple targets ranging at different distances. Thank you very much. Talk to you again soon.
Great product. Even came with its own mounting chain. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to anyone.
I have had this target for about 3 weeks now, and I'm impressed! I used to shoot at I-beam sections, but they would get holes in them really fast. This target will last a LONG time! I've hammered it with 5.56, .223, .17HMR, from 80 to 140 yards, while the 5.56 rounds do leave a little dimple, it will take many thousand rounds to have any significant effect. The dimples are only a few millimeters wide and very shallow (less than 1 mm). As far as handgun rounds, NOTHING touches this! .357Mag from 10-15 yards and all I see is a lead smear! The swinging bullseye in the middle is a BLAST to shoot! There is a definite visual and audible feedback! Everybody who has shot this thinks it is really fun! Just paint the center white and blast away! I highly recommend these!!!
I've got the AR500 in 10, 8, 6, 4, and 3 inch. I recently added the 10" AR500 Bullseye . All my AR's are in 1/2 inch as I'm shooting 223 steel projectiles (Tulammo). The reaction of the targets allows you to see and hear the hit at 200 yards. No need for spotting scopes. The Bullseye even adds the feature of hearing the high pitch clang when you hit the eye. Being tilted so the bullets are driven down toward the ground is a very good idea. No more time wasted walking downrange to repair/replace the targets. Oh yes, you WILL shoot the chains in half so I made some repair links of lighter proof coil chain. Just hacksaw a link on one side in the middle of the link. Holding it in a vice bend one side of the cut out one way, the other side of the cut bend out the other way, leaving a gap large enough to fit over your largest diam chain link. Then when you cut the chain with a shot, just install the link, don't even have to close it until you get home.
I have only shot this 1 time we put about 200 rounds of .40 and .45 on it from about 8-15 yards. It Is Awesome! The steel has no marks in it at all! Can't what to push it out a ways and shoot some rifles at it
This product is just as it was advertised. I may have paid a little more than I should have. It now is advertised at a lower price than I payed. All and All, I am very satisfied!
Excellent Quality great customer service
High quality target and associated hardware. Buy with confidence.
Excellent target/product. Very heavy duty and comes ready to go all ready set up with the mounting chains, just a quick coat of paint and start shooting. I've shot it with from the basic 223, all the way up to my 500 S&W.. no damage at all except to the paint. Heck they even sent me a 3" gong for free.. and 3 days to ship. Super happy and highly recommended!! A.O.
We had a lot of fun with this target! It was well made and came ready to shoot, but I broke it down and painted it before we took it to the range. Worked well with all the large rifles we had with us from .303 to 7.62x39 to 5.56x45 it took everything we threw at it and worked well. We were shooting 200 yards and having the bulls-eye a different color, made it easy to line up and the Clank of the hit made it easy to tell when you hit and where. Hang angle was perfect and most bullets were deflected straight down, including the bulls-eye hits. Great product! Great Price! I will be getting some more...
This is one beast of a steel target. I have 4 other steel targets from Shooting Targets7 and all of them have been high quality and heavy duty steel. This bull's-eye target is the same quality. They take shot after shot with no problems.
This a great well made product. I am extremely happy with it. I will be buying additional targets to add to my range in the future! I would highly recommend these targets to anyone wanting a good quality product to add to their range.
The package came in a timely manner. Everything was as described. We love all the targets we have purchased so far!!!
We shot the heck out of these this weekend. Everything from 5.56 62gr penetrator, 308, 7.62x39 to even 7mm at 75yards +. They held up really well- narely a mark. The chains are the weak link (excuse the pun) bring extra. I was hooking them up with alloy carabiner's but that was a complete fail as spall took them out quickly. Bring extra chains.
You can shoot the daylights out of these and you won't even phase them. Bought two for my son and I. Doesn't get any cheaper for cost than this. All you'll need to do is squirt em' with some high viz paint a day B4 going out Don't expect the bullseye paint to hang in there very long. When setting up to shoot,beware the shooting spall .You'll ruin anything that's not a good distance away. Nice product, nice company, nice guys. Will use again, A+++++++++++++++++++++.
Steel is excellent and nicely cut.
The bullseye target adds another level of fun and challenge to the steel target. The steel is definitely good quality as it stood up well to a full day of shooting with various calibers. The 30-06 was the biggest caliber used so far, and it was the only one that left even the slightest hint of a mark. Everything smaller just chipped the paint. The only negative would be that the chains used to hold the smaller target on the backside were not as stout as the ones used to hang the main target from the stand and they failed just from the impact of the 30-06. However, this is a minor issue and easily resolved. After all, supports are always in danger when shooting at steel, so replacement is expected. Overall I am very pleased with this target.
These Targets exceed my expectation! I really wanted to test how strong they were, so I shot at half the distance recommended! LOL... .223/5.56, 7.62x29mm, 270, 30-30, several pistol rounds, and the .50 Beowulf didn't damage this target. I spray painted the targets and the bullets cleaned the paint off! The important thing is to set up the target correctly. Not only would I recommend these products, but I will buy them again!!!
Bought one for some fun in-between clay rounds. Couldn't have been happier with the product. These in particular are of great quality, and I expect to get many years out of them. They're obviously not the best for accuracy in seeing your shot placement, but the audible and visual feedback is awesome and so much fun. Fan for life.
great target. fun to shoot. very heavy duty.
Overall, very high quality and scary fast and cheap shipping. Ordered 5 of these and they were even assembled. Quality looks great and it's an innovative design. However, several of them have a "tit" on the main plate at the 12' o clock position that is about .5" wide and about as tall. It's no biggie, but it's not in the image nor can I conceive of it serving any purpose. I can always grind it off, though... The only other thing is that the "center" gong is hung with some pretty thin chain. This is probably to make sure it sits nice and flush with the main gong (which it does nicely), however I wonder how long it will sustain direct bulls...? No biggie to replace if it yields as it is an easily serviceable design. I will order more of these. I am seriously pleased regardless. Mark note... The "tit" is there to keep the center bullseye from wrapping up on top of the main target and sticking in the up position. Also rounds can't hit the thinner chain as it's behind the main target. -Thanks for your review.
Shot at my gong for the first time today. Setup at 100 yds. with a .223 and no pitting. Worked great until I shot the chain in half. Better keep some repair links on hand for next time.
Okay maybe it one of my new favorites. I like them all, but the Bullseyes are my favorites.
These gongs are great, they take a ton of abuse. We are shooting at them a little closer than recommended (about 75 yards) and they are holding up to the abuse of some big guns. They provide something fun to shoot at and my group like the fact they get a positive indication from the gong when then they hit the metal. I have ordered a second set to use for pistols. I am a repeat customer as the product is great, however it might be awhile before I have to order any more gongs as they seem to really take a beating. My group only shoots a few times a year, so I am expecting years of service from the sets I purchased. I have them set on a stand with a 10 inch in the middle and two 8 inch targets flanking.
We set these up at various distances, from 100 to 600 yards.You can hear the ring when hit. I like you can change shooting angle and distance by moving your shooting postion. These are holding up well. Very Pleased!
I love this target, my son and I were shooting the heck out of this thing and he used his 5.56 on it without a dent or scratch. Just ordered another one in 1/4". for our 9mm. Can't wait
Target is holding up well and is a BLAST to shoot! Super communications and fast shipping! Great company and products!
Living in the perpetual damp and blustery Pacific Northwest it is refreshing to obtain a complete outdoor targeting system that can with stand wind, rain and other inclement weather conditions that play havoc on paper targets. No more wasted dollars on paper. I have purchased all 1/2" AR500 from ShootingTargets7 as well as two stands that I have set up for short range pistol targeting as well as long range rifle practice. I especially like the Bullseye targets and have three along with three various size gongs in 1/2". The safety factor of these targets was one of the main reasons that I Made the investment in the ShootingTagets7 system. Shipping was phenomenal as well as packaging. Great company to do business with.
I love the 10" Bullseye Target so much so, that I now own 4 of them. I use three of them for the "El Presidente" drill - and the other for long range AR shooting. Perfect targets, and great service = a customer for a long time. Thanks Mark
This review is for a 12 inch gong, 10 inch bullseye and 4 inch gong which was free with order over $100. All targets ordered were 1\2 inch thick. I was first only going to get the 12 inch gong, but added the 10 inch bullseye when I saw that there was free shipping and a free 4 inch gong included with purchase totals of $100 or more. So this was a fantastic deal for targets of this quality. We shot at these with a 7 mm Rem mag and AR 15 (5.56) from about 100 yards and there was only very minor pitting - about 1 mm deep. We did manage to hit one of the connecting bolts which blew the bolt head off so the target was only hanging from one support chain (this was on the 12 inch gong) so we just continued to shoot at the 10 inch bullseye and the 4 inch gong. The 10 inch bullseye came with its own hanging hardware (bolts and chain) but I got the hanging hardware from Home Depot for the other two gongs (3\8 inch carriage bolts 2 inches in length and 1\4 inch proof coil grade 30 chain in 12 inch lengths). Make sure to get some spares. I am thinking of ordering the 16 inch gong for shooting at ranges over 100 yards. I strongly urge everyone to get the largest size you can afford - you won't be sorry - especially if you plan on shooting at longer ranges. At 200 yards, even the 12 inch gong looks very small when viewed thru a non magnified red dot sight.
Quite possibly the BEST gong I've ever shot. Only thing is the center isn't painted like it is in the picture (not that it matters as you'd blast the paint off in a few shots anyways). Out of my entire order the only thing I liked better was the Torso target with the center gong. I've already told all my buddies to order some of these bad boys.
only shot at during one range trip so far. At 200 yards the bullseye gives a good challenge. Shot with 223 and 6.8spc and the plate itself is like new. The edges of the target did chip a little but that is no problem at all. Love these targets so far.
WENT OUT SHOOTING FOR THE NEW YEAR EVERY ONE LOVED THE 10 IN BULLSEYE
Chariot Weapon Systems
Quality product. Couldn't speak for the customer support as I have never had to call them with a problem. We have been shooting steel here for years and the friends and customers love it. Just FYI a 2" bolt is more than enough to "tune" the correct angle into the hanging target. Last order was 6-3/8"x6" gongs (they really jump around), 2-1/2x10" bullseyes (in a word ... Money), 1-3/8" torso and 1-3/8" torso w/ bullseye (must haves for the folks how have a lot of try but little ability to hit the barn) and a single 1/2"x4" gong (thrown in ... however I'm glad they did as it is one of my favorite long range targets). Be careful with shooting steel ... it is highly addictive.
This review is for the 10" AR500 BULLSEYE TARGET 1/2". Shipping was fast and arrived in a couple days with rush handling. It came with the chains for hanging attached to the plate. Shot the target with over 200 rounds of Mil Spec 7.62x51 and .308 Win. at 100 yards. The 7.62 was Federal M80 149 gr FMJ and the .308 Win. was 175 gr SMK HPBT moving at 2500 fps. At the end of the day, it was covered with lead splashing but only 3 hardly noticeable dimples in the metal. The dimples were only about 1/32" deep. Very happy with this target and would buy it again. Both ST7 and target are highly recommended!
I ordered a 10" Bullseye, 8" gong and 6" gong. All of them in 1/2" AR 500. The USPS shipped them to my old address and after 1 day sent them back. A call to ST7 had a NEW shipment promptly sent to me. I had my targets 3 days later. Can't ask for more than that. I have shot these targets with 9mm, .357 mag, .44 mag, 5.56, and 22LR. Ranges are from 25 yds to 150 yds depending on the firearm and my confidence on a particular day. The targets are holding up great and give a satisfying ring with everything but the 22LR at 100 yds. I still get a clear WHACK with those, but I may order some lighter gongs in the future for shooting with the .22. I've shot plenty of steel targets back when I competed in IPSC but I have never seen the quality of these before. The steel and the build quality are first class. They should hold up to about anything. The only reason I haven't hammered away at them with my 7mm mag is I need to load some more cartridges. Other than that I have no reservations about hitting these things hard. *UPDATE* - 6 weeks later my original order showed up at my door with the USPS address correction attached! My wife contacted ST7 and got a return authorization, but I don't know if I can let go of them!
After using the targets that my husband had ordered from Shooting Targets 7, I ordered one for my dad for Christmas. In the holiday shipping rush, there was a little mixup with my order-- I called the customer service number and not only did a real human answer the phone, but it was Mark. He immediately helped me sort out the mixup and made sure that I got what I needed as quickly as possible. We love the targets, and I'm happy to continue to do business with a company that takes care of their customers. Thanks, Mark!!
This is a cool target. The bullseye really jumps more than I expected, even when shot with 9mm. That makes it even more fun to shoot than a regular gong target. Be sure you are shooting from a safe distance, though. If you are too close with a rifle, hits to the edges will take little chunks out of the front edge corner. Also make sure you have a backstop that is plenty big. When it's hanging at an angle to deflect shots towards the ground, there is a small area at the top (because of its thickness) that is angled up. Overall, great target. I'm really enjoying it so far.
I bought this and built my own stands part of the fun is picking the color you will paint them I recommend fast drying rustoleum paint in a bright color! Targets are top notch very smooth and no rough edges. I also recommend ordering the chains and bolts to hang them helps to hang them at a slight angle. Fast shipping and customer service is great all questions answered very fast! Very rugged they will last a very long time!!!!
I have been a quality engineer for over 30 years working in heavy industry and metal cutting. This is a well made product out of high quality steel. I could easily make this on my equipment but, I could not do it for as low a cost. The quality is outstanding and has already survived everything I can throw at it. The center gong target makes it easy to distinguish when I hit the center during rapid fire drills. Thank you.
I bought a 1/2 inch thick bullseye target and it came with a free 3 inch gong! I already had a 6 inch target that was 1/2 inch thick. I love shooting steel targets. And the bullseye is really fun. From 80 yards i shot them with green tips and the only damage to the targets is around the edges. Just small craters.. otherwise just take spray paint and respray like new. And the paint splater on the steel target can be seen alot easier than the shoot n see paper ones. ive only bought 1/2 inch thick targets. I shoot with ar 15 green tips and a 270 win. 80 yards is the closest ive put the targets and they r still in great shape after probably more than 1000 rounds. Just the little edge craters.
This target is perfect... These are not your cheap ebay or swapmeet targets... I have no complaints what so ever... It is solid across the board... I took it out to 100yds and proceeded to slam it with 5.56/223... After 10rds I went to check it out... You could tell where the rounds hit, but there was no damage or pitting to the plates... After about 100 rounds the plate still looks great... The mounting hardware didn't budge... I will definitely be buying more targets from them... I couldn't be happier with this target...
The best accuracy target out there period! Set this up at long range 250 yards and longer. If you consistently hit the 3 inch center and you will have the confidence to make a ethical kill shot on any big game!
I ordered this target on a Weekend and received it that following Thursday. I believe that this is excellent service and the instructions that are included are easy to understand and guide you perfectly on how to set everything up professionally. I received this Bullseye target with all the necessary mounting hardware already installed. I thought that was a very personal and professional touch and it saved me a lot of time to get it mounted and start using it. These targets are very Heavy Duty and should provide years of recreational use. I highly recommend this company and these targets to all my Firearm enthusiastic friends and family. Definitely 5+ stars in my opinion!!!!
Red River West
Really good long range rifle target , the 3" bull works good out to 400 yds. For precision rifle classes.
After hours of research on internet looking for a high quality reasonable priced steel targets i found shooting targets 7. I ordered a 10" bullseye, 10",8",6",4", and they threw another 4" in for free all of which are AR500 1/2". Ended up with free shipping and let me tell ya i couldn't be happier with these guys. All targets were clean in their cuts, smooth surfaces and packaged right. Im in the process of building a range so i havent put the rifles on them yet but any handgun (22,9,357,40,44,45) thus far hasn't even come close to pitting or chipping them. When i finish the range I WILL be ordering a whole collection of 3/8" targets from ST7 for my hanguns as the 1/2" were really meant for my rifles. Thanks ST7 for taking pride in your work and customer service...
These targets are best on market,by far.Fast shipping.
Great target, it took a .45 and .357 like a champ. I highly recommend these targets.
Great Product for a great price. I am a repeat customer.
I can not take enough rounds with me when I go to work on this target. It's is too fun! It also gives great immediate feed back I am hitting were I am aiming saves on time and trips down rang. I use this up close for pistol and at distance for long range couldn't be happier!
Fast processing, quick delivery and a top quality product. Ready to shoot right out of the box !
these targets are a great time
I would recommend any product from this company. Great customer service!
Very heavy duty steel, hardware and mounting chain. Works like a champ. I paint the gong white and the bullseye fluorescent orange.
I'm very please with my order from shooting targets 7. They were delivered quickly and just as advertised. I would recommend other to buy from them. The only thing that got me was having to prep and paint them. Which wasn't hard to do, just my lazy bone was acting up. I used a drill with with wire wheel and buffed them up and sprayed them. It was quick worked like a charm.
Get this 10" bullseye gong and IPSC bullseye silhouette and for just over $200 you are set! I love em, my friends love em and it saves you so much in targets(in the long run) and you will shoot more , because its more fun shooting steel!
Purchased the 10" x 1/2" thick bullseye target which arrived quickly and we have pounded it with45 acp, 40 S&W, 9mm, 380, and 44 magnum from 15 yards. The faces are still smooth as glass. It is fun to see and hear the hits and reaction of the targets, especially with a 44 magnum! Can't wait to put it out at 200 yards and more to pound it with rifles too. Highly recommended... use a good primer as Mark suggests to see you hits better too.
Does just what it is supposed to. Well built, I'd like to see it a few dollars cheaper, but it won't disappoint you. I have to say I can never see the bullseye get knocked back, I can see the paint chip off, but maybe it's more visible to watch somebody else do it. It's still a ton of fun!
Fast delivery,set up on a 2x4 and went to the range,Had a blast and did not have to keep changing paper targets.Hard to see the bullseye being hit at 100 yards ,but when I went and picked up the target and stand you could see the bullseye had no paint left on it.the stand that was ordered with the gong made set up very easy.The 3" gong is hard to see at 100 yards with iron sights ,but at 15 yards the bullseye was easy to see when hit as was the 3" gong.would definitely recommend to others and will buy others
Love this target! You need one if like shooting steel. It will make you smile when you hit the center. Fun !!!
Superb in every way!
Great targets at a great price. They suer do take a beating!!!!
This plate is great fun. Everyone likes the challenge of hitting the middle. I haven't seen any damage to it.
I love the bullseye gong in the center.I am going to order the 1/2" bullseye torso next. These are very heavy duty targets and will last a lifetime.
What a great concept! Next order will be the 1/4" ones. 22's just don't make the 1/2" steel ring but does it ever stand up to the big boys!
On Memorial Day I invited 55 of my military staff and their family members to a barbecue for one of my young NCO's "going away"/PCS. He is a great shooting enthusiast so I purchased several (five) AR500 targets and we set-up a firing range on my 10 acre rural property. The guests shot for several hours with everything from M4's/AR15's to 30-06/308's...the targets were outstanding! The only breakage was a couple of chain links and one target bolt from a couple of direct mis-hits...everything held-up as advertised and product delivery was quick from USPS. This is a wonderful product line and a solid company that has delivered as promised...well done!
Awesomely fast shipping to Toronto Canada. Range Safety Officers approved target right away and all of them stopped to check us out as we shot the !0" at 100 meters. Everybody asked where we got them cause they'd never seen the design. We gave Shooting Targets lots of references that day, but the targets sold themselves. Well done, and thanks a lot for an excellent product. Superior build - great robust chain, surface held up to 556 and 308
This is the target I use most, I normally set this one at 500 yards for my scoped rifles and it's a blast when I hit the. Center!! These targets can take some serious hits. Great product fast shipping!
These are a hoot to shoot.
This is my second bullseye target. Excellent craftsmanship! Everybody loves shooting these targets. I like that all of the hardware is included.
Will buy more! Thanks for a great product!
I just had a chance to field test these monsters. I can only say it is top notch. I pushed easily 300+ rounds of .45ACP and a hand full of .380. It laughed them all off. I did not realize this come ready to go. No need to buy chains or anything. (They say that, but I was too excited to read it all after watching videosג€¦ lol) I purchased the ֲ½ think ones because I thought I might hit them with some rifle rounds one day. It sounds pretty good when you hit them. But as they mentioned a larger/thinner gong will surly ring like a bell. The angle that they hang made sure nothing came back at us. I know they said 30 yards but I was brave and tried a few steps closer (20yards) for my short barrel pistol (S&W Bodyguard/Taurus PT145). Still everything hit the ground. I even picked up some of the lead rounds so I can recycle them later. I would buy these again but possibly, the thinner version for more of a ring.
Say goodby to cheap "retail" purchased steel targets. So much more fun than paper targets. Was actually floored when my order for 4 targets was delivered for FREE 3 days later, the mail man was probably cursing carting the package to my door. After shooting 300 rounds one afternoon I'm impressed the steel has no signs of wear. I went with 1/2" just to make sure it handles the "hey y'all watch this" action.
The 10" bullseye 1/2" target was excellent, more then I expected and worked great. Looks like I will have years of fun using it.
So I bought this, along with several other sizes, to use with my AR15. When we went to our 'range', we decided to use this for some pistol practice first. WHAT. A. BLAST!!! Shot this with .22, 9mm, .40 and .45ACP, and this target just ate everything we could throw at it! In fact, we never got around to pulling it back for our rifles as we were having so much fun knocking the heck out of it with pistols. I agree with some of the other comments in here, that 1/2" might be a little thick to get a nice 'ring', but seeing the center target jump when struck was awesome! Everyone wanted to know where I got these, and I was happy to give them your site. It wouldn't surprise me if the next time we all meet up that I'm not the only one with your targets! Great product, great price, fast shipping and WAY better than paper! Will be ordering more when I can! Keep up the good work!
Great target, look forward to many years of use!
Really like this reactive target. Can hear a .22 from 100yds. Normal (some) wear from pounding it with 5.56, 7.62x39 and .308 at 100yds min. Stops swinging quickly, especially if you hit center! but at 500yds, you aren't waiting all day for it to slow down. I don't use it for pistols (prefer silhouettes) as its more of a long range rifle target. Fast shipping. Great service. Will buy more/from again! Thanks
I received free shipping. Ordered my targets on Wednesday night and they were on my doorstep Monday when I got home from work. Price is very competitive with all the other places that I have been looking at.

This is an amazing target at a great price. It comes with the chains and hardware connecting the two plates all that's needed is a stand and some paint. I'm very please and would recommend this to anyone.
Very good product. I received free shipping and it arrived in just a few days. Ordered Wednesday night, received it Monday afternoon!
I picked this up as a gift for my dad. Nice heavy duty material and was packaged real well. Can't wait to try it out and see how it holds up!
Just finished painting, getting ready to test.
I order this along with a couple other things and they were in the mail the next day and had may package within 3 days. Target stood up to a couple hundred rounds of .223 No Problem!!! They are heavy, perfect cuts, easy to paint and just a beast of of a piece of steel. They leave a slight indent when hit but that is to be expected. Overall very happy with this steel target and I will be buying a couple more soon. I love this 3" bullseye on this .... it;s great to know you got a hit ont he 10" steel but seeing the back 4" plate flip back on a bullseye hit is even more gratifying. Just adds to the fun that shooting steel already was. :)
Took this bad boy down range for some shooting last week. Tortured the poor thing with my AR shooting 5.56 XM193F and my .500 S&W Mag. I am done with lame ass paper targets from here on out. This thing was a blast - pun intended. We smacked this thing from 100 to 300 yards and I am quite impressed to what little damage we did to it. Tiny pock marks (and I mean tiny) at 100 yards from the 5.56, but I kind of expected that as it was probably a little too close. There is no way I will ever damage this thing to failure in my lifetime. Fantastic product - took spray paint like a champ and provided great audible and visual feedback for hits. Great price, great quality and again way more fun than paper. I have been a competitive shooter since I could walk and I cannot believe it took me this long to discover the joy of steel. Buy some - promise you and your friends won't be disappointed.
At first I thought I was missing, but realized I was hitting the center target and it didn't give off as loud a DING as the gongs, guess it's moves back and absorb more of the energy. But once I figured it out I knew to watch for the quick bit of light to show in the center or see the mark of the bullet splatter. Adds an extra bit of a challenge to shooting steel with the center target. As with the rest of their targets great value and fun for any shooter. And as always, nice to support a fellow veteran to purchase quality targets from his business. Thanks for your service to our GREAT country. Marks note, thanks Chris I appreciate that!
Fun, fun, fun. Bought several targets in various sizes. Set them up and took them to a friends farm and 12 of us shot over a thousand rounds from 22cal, 9mm, 40, 5.56, 308 and 30-06. All the targets held up great. I don't think I'll be going back to paper targets.
