Great targets put some decal stickers on them to make them show up a little better.
I had a great experience. Ridiculously fast shipping had all the items to me before an event!
The whole family enjoys ringing the gong! Great quality targets!
Great size for pistol shooting and great quality. This thing will last for years
Ordered on May 25, 2020 and here I am waiting June 19, 2020 and still nothing has arrived. I went to go shooting with my father for the first time in thirty years so I bought some steel targets to make the the moment special. My package never arrived. What a disappointment as I don't know if my father that is in his 70's can make it out with me again. The tracking number was given to me shows that it was mailed but is somewhere in USPS system. I hope that shootingtargets7 still gets my package to me.
used @25 yds with 9mm,22,45lc nice ring good value
Excellent target . Exactly what I ordered , the day it came it took a pounding with 450 bushmaster . After about 75 shots I had to call it a day , shoulder couldn't take anymore . But target is great shape
Great product at a great price!!
Cheap and awesome! I followed the directions with respect to velocity and distance and there was no problem.
If it wasn't for the marks on the paint I'm not sure I'd be able to tell I hit them.
Unbelievable quality, You have to see them to believe it. You won’t regret any purchases that you make from this company.
Fast shipping. Couldn’t be happier with the quality. It was better than I expected.
I love this 8 inch gong, i bought a 10 inch also to go along with it, the great thing is i can keep adding to my setup slowly as i save up money for it,
The whole experience was very good
Great products. Fast delivery. Now that they're set up, let the games begin. Be safe, have fun.. Scouts Out
Had a great day at the range with our new 8” gongs. We got a great price and insanely fast delivery, too. Will definitely be buying again.
These Gongs are the perfect weight and thickness for use on our land. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a good time outdoors.
Great targets, especially for the price. Heading out to ring steel this weekend!
Work as advertised, slight pitting with .223/5.56 at 140 yards
Great service fast delivery cant ask for more than that.
Great product, fair price and reasonably fast shipping. Will buy more targets here.
I love the 8 in 3/8 plates in ar500, I bought six of them, I hit them with the 45 Long Colt and 357,
they are just perfect, this is the way I hang them, I am going to purchase six of the 10 in in a 3/8 next.
I give them 5 star
Quality steel. Surprisingly fast shipping
Performs as advertised
These look great!
I have my own range at my house and I have gone exclusively to these AR500 gong targets in varying sizes. The 3/8" handles steel core 7.62x54R ammo at 60 yards w/ no damage to the gong. I highly recommend these.
I use this target for shooting quick drills with my AR and it has been a great addition to the range. We hardly shoot at the paper anymore because this is much more rewarding. With a loud ring when hit you can see the faces on others who have never shot steel smile. I will be buying more. Thanks for providing an fantastic target at an unbelievable price!
This is the best buy on steel that I could find anywhere, coupled with the flat rate shipping it can't be beat. I will definitely be buying more.
Bought several gongs, mounting kits, repair links, etc. Great prices - and I shop around a lot. Much faster shipping than anticipated, packaged securely. Targets are very cleanly cut with little scale and are very durable- the most I've hit them with is an 7.62x39 (AK) but no damage at all. I doubt that I'll ever wear these out but I'll need more at some point and will be sure to order here again.
Gongs are great quality and we're delivered quickly. I put about 200 rounds down range and they are like new. Will come back again
Reasonable pricing and quick shipping
Great product and fast shipping. Looking forward to years shooting this target.
Great Targets. Suggest ordering mounting kits with targets.
These targets are excellent. They are just as described. I did not buy the hardware this time. I will next time because the price is very reasonable and it is a pain in the rear to go to Home Depot and buy all the stuff. THANK YOU!!
I put in an order for 6 gongs from shootingtargets7 and must say that they delivered in every respect. Quality is second to none. I have some other AR-500 gongs from another maker and there is no comparison in quality and workmanship between them. My hootingtargets7 gongs are so clean they look like they were made with a stamp. Perfectly symmetrical and all edges are sharp and clean; no slag, no grinder marks, no tool marks. I spent $102 and got the free shipping option so that was fantastic! This is a great company and I stand by their product.
This thing takes licks from both my 9mm and 223/556 firearms without any issues.
awesome cant beat it
It's my first Gong and it will definitely not be my last one from this company.
Excellent quality and a great price. Having lots of fun shooting it with my 9mm and .40 caliber.
steel target fast shipping.
excellent target have a lot of fun shooting would for sure purchase more shipping was really fast also
This target is awesome. For the price you can't beat it. There is nothing like the sound of a 45 hitting the gong.
Thanks for a great product at a great price. enjoy shooting the targets and thanks for the extras. will order again soon.

I ordered the 4, 6 and 8 inch gong targets last Sept, I believe. I wanted to get some time on the range with them before I wrote a review. Well, we have put at least a thousand rounds on each of these targets and I can only say wow! Theses are some great targets. We have only used pistol ammunition on the targets from 22 LR to .45 colt. I have not rotated the targets as of yet, but to be honest, I have not seen a reason to do it. No pitting, warping or bending that would lead me to believe it was time to rotate the metal. I will probably do it this summer just to make these last forever, although they will probably last forever anyways. I remember that shipping was extremely quick and customer service was excellent. You can't go wrong purchasing from Shooting Targets 7. I searched many sights and gave them a try and will not go anywhere else. I also got their target stands and mounting accessories. Great design, easy setup and service that exceeds expectations. Did I mention, I also Received a 3" target for free when I ordered. Great company!!
Bought 7 steel target when it was on sale awesome deals, superb quality. Glade I made the right call buying from y'all. Thank you for shipping them out so quickly.
I have only had one shooting session with my new targets, but I can say that they are so much more fun to shot than paper! My father and I setup quickly (cold overcast day at ranch) and shot for several hours, which we normally do not do with paper targets. I would not hesitate to order more (in fact I am now thinking of several of the other sizes)! Targets are great quality and value for the money. I have always wanted to try these and finally did.
This is not a cheap gong. It is a very thick piece of steel, well made. No edges that will cut you. Get large links because 1/4 inch shackles will not cut it. I have not hit it with the winmag yet but 77gr AR rounds did nothing to it except take some paint.
I have put over 1000 rounds on these targets in the last week. The quality is top notch. The sound is great. I love to watch the targets swing. These steel targets are so much better then paper it is just unbelievable. The hanging kits work great I don't think you could build them yourself for any less. Great price great quality great fun!!!! The shipping was timely.
It has been a few weeks since receiving my AR500 8in - 3/8in thick steel target from shootingtargets7 and I have been out shooting at it now for about 2 weeks and it is holding up perfectly against 9mm and .40 cal ammo. This target will last forever and the sound that it makes when hitting it is very good and lets you know your hitting it very well, the target also leaves little bullet markings on it so you can see exactly where your hitting the target as well and just wipes clean with some wd40 very easily and it brings the target back to its original brand new state. Great Targets!!!!!
Looking to add some fun to a pistol class I was teaching, I got 5 of these and some heavy duty shepherds hooks for ease of moving. No issues with the steel...easily painted different colors for different courses and the they work hanging by either one hole (simplest) or two (with some chain). About 1000 rounds on them so far and no pitting or chips despite many hits on the edge.
Takes hit after hit without denting. Liked the first order so much I ordered more.....Well worth the money and will last a lifetime....
I bought the 8" 3/8 AR500 gong after I ruined two 6" A-36 mild steel targets with my new Bushmaster 223/556 the mild steel was no challenge for a 223 round. The AR500 steel takes hits from 223/556 and is a beautiful sound with no signs of pitting at all, I highly recommend AR500 targets from ShootingTargets7. I will be purchasing more in the future, thanks for an outstanding product!
Best gongs around. Quality cut and finish. All you have to do is add lead and have fun!
Just took a roll of masking tape, centered it and painted a white center. as much fun as you can have! Bill
These are great. Very heavy duty. Much heavier and thicker than I expected them to be. Going to be a lot of fun hammering them with rounds.
I already had purchased and reviewed this gong earlier, but I wanted to set several up at different distances for pistol work that I ordered a couple of more! So much more fun than shooting paper. My father and I can spend a whole afternoon in the hot Texas weather just shooting these targets... I'll be ordering more for one more distance from the shooting line. Currently I have two 8", two 12", and two of the IPSC torsos all in 3/8' one of each setup at 10 and 20 yards. All I can say is I wish I had found this website a lot sooner!!!
Great target at a great price. Shipped right away. I will be buying more.
I have several gongs 8" and smaller that I have run from 50 feet to 100 yards. I love them. I like the GLANG! I like the swing I like the safety factor of the splattered bullet deflecting into the ground. I especially like the fact that i can now just walk out the door and start spanking targets. No more hanging paper of setting up cans, etc. just draw a bead and start shooting. I also like the idea that there is no target clean up or litter. When I'm finished with these targets they will be good for my descendants to shoot for another generation.
clean cuts on what seems to be good quality steel. Couldnג€™t be happier!
So many things in life disappoint. These steel targets are the best thing going. Having a BLAST.
Ordered two Steel targets and they are exactly what I was looking for. I have about 150 Rounds on them so far and they are working just as advertised. No pitting or marks, just add a new coat of paint and hit them again. I will be ordering again!
Love this gong. It's the perfect size for fast hammer drills. I'm going to be ordering more of these. i think 3 is the perfect number to have.
THESE ARE EXCELLENT TARGETS. WITH THE EAR HOLES THEY CAN BE TIED BETWEEN POSTS AND REMAIN FLAT TO YOU. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE PRODUCT AND SHIPPING.
Bought a bunch of gongs recently (3", 4", 8" 10" and 12").. These have dramatically added the FUN FACTOR to shooting. It's incredible how they all hold up to major abuse... If only the gong stand was as strong ! All the gongs arrived very quickly. I couldn't be more impressed with Shootingtargets7 !!!
Love these targets! more time shooting and less time setting up...
Great target. Shipped fast and fun to shoot till the ammo runs dry. Handles my hot .357 & .44 mag rounds out of a rifle or revolver no problem.
Bought 6" and 8" gong at 3/8" thickness. Very fun to shoot. Can hear sound from 100 yards. 22LR, 9mm, 45cal and 7.62 did not leave any marks. 223 did leave some marks at 50 yards. Have to heed warning on bullet velocity surpassing 3000 fps. No dents on the back side. Bullets do fracture spray around the target. Evident by all the shrapnel captured in the wooden stands.
I bought a variety of 3/8" thick gongs, including some 8" ones. I took them out the other day and set them up using chain so that they could freely swing. They performed well when shot with 9mm and 380 at 10 yards and with 7.62x39 at 100 yards. No pitting. They did not perform well when shot with 45 colt (from a lever gun) at 30-40 yards, and with 223 at 150 yards. The 45 colt left small dents, and the 223 left small but noticeable craters. At 200 yards the 223 was fine. All rounds were regular copper jacketed FMJ's. The targets are still a good buy, and I will most likely buy again, but I will do so now knowing at what distances to shoot these particular AR500 steel targets. Just some data points.
Quality product with fast shipping...never go back to paper. My fiancee loves them
Love this product! Great quality. Adds challenge to our range!
LOOKING FOR NEW STEELE FOR MY SHOOTING RANGE. SAW THIS COMPANY ON FACEBOOK. THE PRICES ARE GREAT, FAST SHIPPING AND QUALITY IS EXCEPTIONAL.
The 8 and 10 inch gongs are the perfect size for distance shooting. As you get smaller you have to be a much better shot. These come in unpainted as it states on the website to keep costs down. This means to start with you will have to give them a couple of coats of paint as a base. As with any metal target you will be painting them often as the paint will chip when you shoot it. I am a fan of keeping the costs down. I shot the targets with pistol rounds (40 and 38 spec) and it had the typical paint marks but no damage to the target itself. I shot the targets at 100 yards with 223 rounds and again they held up beautifully. The paint chipped but their was no noticeable mark in the steel. I made these fairly portable by buying a couple of 5' green steel fence stakes and some chain at a local hardware store. Put an eyelet screw in the top holes of the stakes with a nut on each side to hold the chain and then hung the chain on those. All in all the stakes, Chains and screws cost under 15$. A cheap way to set the gongs up. With any place you order you never know what kind of company you are dealing with until something goes wrong. My order was for a number of gongs and they sent the wrong size on one of the smaller gongs. I brought it to their attention and the correct gong was sent out immediately no questions asked. People make mistakes. It is how they deal with the mistakes that sets them apart. Customer service at ShootingTargets7 is A+.
.223 at 3300 didn't leave a mark, just a dot in the paint. Marks note, To clarify here, muzzle speed and bullet speed at point of impact are 2 different things. No idea how far away you were. (don't want to give folks the wrong impression) thank you for your review.
This is a good choice if you want to shoot handguns or .22LR up-close (at a safe distance) and also use larger rifles at 100 yards and beyond. It's also a good size for a target "kill zone" . I have a small collection going now, and might go with a larger gong next time.
great prices,great service, and fast shipping.
Use for 22 lr, 9mm, 45ACP. Makes a clear ringing sound when hit.
These are awsome targets, once you try you will love... GREAT Thanks shooting target 7
These are great targets. It is so much easier to see if my shot hit - the swinging tells me I on. Wish I known about these long ago!
I like it!
I ordered a total of 6 of these gongs! I couldn't be more happy with this product! Ordering was easy and they arrived a day earlier than expected! Myself and a couple of buddies have put about 500 rounds into all the plates I ordered. They are really high quality and I think they will last a very very long time! The price on these is very reasonable! Thanks again, Shawn
Target was damaged when received, bent, twisted, out of round..... Just kidding. These things can not be damaged! Even at 50 yards, I plugged it with a 308, nothing happen to the steel, although my saw horse made of 2x4's, that I have targets hanging from, fell over. I own 5 different sizes. Make target shooting much more enjoyable.
The quality of these steel targets is TOP NOTCH ! ! ! Being HOT outside and having to haul in / haul out these targets at my local range, I have yet to shoot any of them. I have built a frame to hang up to 5 targets. Can't wait for it to cool off so I can get MANY rounds on these targets.
I was looking around for steel targets for awhile. Was going to try and be cheap and go to scrap yards to see if I could find some steel, but decided that I would try to look online. That was when I found shootingtargets7.com. To me the prices were exceptionally reasonable so I ordered a few. Not knowing the actual size of these I ordered a few different ones. I opted to buy my own hardware and chains, but this too proved more expensive. The targets themselves are amazing quality and ship extremely fast. I live in NY and got these within 2 days. Was shocked when they showed up as fast as they did. After shooting these targets I decided to get a few more 8" targets as I only got one to start with and smaller ones. I wanted 4 or 5 of the same size, but this time I ordered them with the hardware. These showed up within 2 days as well. AWESOME product and awesome service. Would definitely buy here again.
Small enough to challenge my pistol; large enough to be seen from afar for riflery...couldn't be happier with this gong!
This is my 3rd order. Quality of these product are great. Fast shipping, and the prices of these products are fantastic.
we bought the 3,4,6,&8 inch 3/8" gongs. best target shooting the son and i have ever had.
We have these set up at the shooting range on our hunting ranch. Gives our customers a chance to make sure their rifle is sighted in before heading out to hunt.
Great product for target shooting with noticeable feedback when hit. Metal is clean cut with smooth edges all around. Fast Shipping!!!
My order arrived very quickly. We recently tested the target using handgun and rifle rounds at the recommended distances. After the shooting session the steel felt completely smooth even at the locations where the paint was removed by a bullet strike. I could not detect even the slightest ding or indentation. Thanks.
Bought the 8" gongs, great quality, proves I need to practice more.
Excellent quality. Very durable. Had too buy my own chains and lag bolts though.
Super fun. Paper targets are a thing of the past. It's hard to stop plinking on these plates!
Great product, great quality, and fair price. Excellent shipping time. And love the free shipping. That is what makes the deal.
I wrote this same review for the 12" gong and am including it here as I ordered the 8" as well and it has preformed flawlessly. I own about 10 steel targets, but these are the first I've purchased from Shooting Targets 7. I was a little skeptical due to the low price. I received my order in 2 days from when it was placed! And the targets have preformed just like an AR500 steel target should. I don't mind that the targets are unpainted....you are going to be repainting them a lot anyway...no big deal to start with a fresh coat of your own.
These are truly great targets. Much more fun than hitting paper. Instant feedback. The prices are very reasonable, the quality is exceptional, and the shipping is quick and fairly priced. I have reordered twice and have just ordered magnetic stencils. It is nice to find a good quality product at a good price, not made offshore.
I'm no expert on types of steel, but this particular gong held up fine to 7.62x39 and .308 rounds. And it rang like a bell! The shipping was extremely fast, and a question I emailed the company was answered right away. I don't think you can go wrong with these gongs or this company.
I have fired about 150 rounds of 5.56x45 55 grain hollow-point ammunition into the 3/8" thick AR500 4", 6", and 8" gongs from a distance of 100 yards. The 4" gong would nearly always swing hard enough to wrap the mounting chains around the 2x4, even when hit with this relatively mild 223 handload with a muzzle velocity of about 3000 FPS. However, the 6" and 8" gongs worked very well, yielding a satisfying THWACK when hit. None of the targets rang like a bell when hit, even when I was shooting them at 25 yards with hard cast lead 357 magnum bullets at a muzzle velocity of about 1000 FPS. None of the targets showed the least bit of damage from the rifle rounds or from the pistol rounds - they should last indefinitely with the kind of use described above. Overall, a very good product at a reasonable price. However, I was not expecting the 4" gong to wrap around the 2x4 when hit with a .224 hollow point projectile at 100 yards. Much more satisfying than shooting paper targets, and most lead particles were directed down into the dirt below the targets.
Best in price,quality and shipping. Will be telling everyone about these targets.
