I've been buying target's from these guys now for 2 years always happy with the products,with proper use will last lifetime
Fast shipping and the machine work and finish are like a machined part not a target, Very Nice!!
Great product. I’m glad I bought from Shooting Targets 7.
Great pricing. Quick shipping. Thank you.
I am very happy with my purchase, this is very high quality steel, and shipping was very fast.
Great product, fast delivery, great service, great price. What else do you need to know.
Great product and good price point.
Performs as advertised
I recently purchased a couple of 10" and an 8" (3/8") gongs. Now that they've been installed and have been shot a few times, I can report that they are really great products. Installation was easy and their surface has been unaffected by 38+P and stout 44 special loads with hard cast bullets.
Great product, great price, fast shipping! Plates (gongs) are high quality with very smooth cuts. We have had a ball with them so far although we have not finished setting up our range. I'm sure that we will add more in the near future from Shooting Targets 7. Thanks!
As usual this was a fantastic product. High quality, good price, fast shipping.
4 stars on the quality only because the product is not really a "gong", it is a plate. There is no curvature on the face of the plate to make it a gong. With that said, the plate quality is really 5 stars with clean cut edges and mounting holes. Price is very competitive with other AR500 10" plates and shipping was very fast!
I am a returning customer.. i have bought all 3/8 4" 6" 8" and 10" gongs /plates .. they are all superb quality and great cuts! Mark is an awesome person to deal with and the shipping is the best! Shot them dozens of time and these will last a lifetime!!
Great product. Works as advertise. I am a returning customer. Will recommend to any one looking for some real AR500 steel targets.
Haven't had a chance to take the 3x 10" (3/8" thick) gongs I purchased to the range for live fire yet. However, all edges are clean and hangar holes are precise. Upon initial inspection, I am satisfied with description and product overall
I bought 2-10" gongs, shooting @ 100 yds with 556 xm193 ammo, barely leaves pock mark, I plan to get more, Would recommend to my friends.
I like the 3/8" gong the best of all as far as a thickness necessary for rifles like the 308. My 308 has a 26" barrel and is 3,000 fps mv and it doesn't do much more than take the paint off, so I can see through my scope where I hit. I have this gong set out 150 yards and I shoot out my office window, in my spare time! Yes, it is nice, thank you! My old gongs were homemade and over 1" think and they barely wiggled when hit, but the bullets from my rifles penetrated almost 1/2". The damage made it hard to see where I hit even after a new coat of paint. If anyone wants some used-up gongs with 1/2" craters, I can beat Mark's prices, but not by much! Have fun shooting...
I really enjoy shooting steel over paper. 9mm and 40 cal didn't leave a mark. My 55 grain .223 rounds left a very slight impression when shot from 50 yards. I expect to get many,many years of use out of these gongs and will likely buy more.
I purchased 2-4", 2-6", 2-8", and 1-10" gong and hung them all at different heights on the same rack. These targets are great and ring nice and loud. They are great for training to hear the ring and switch targets rather than trying to find the hole in a piece of paper. I have used them on any and all size rifles and handguns already without a scratch on them. I plan on more in the future. Great product, thanks
Great product, fast shipping! I use this steel for 9mm, 40 s&w, 357 sig, 45acp, 45 super and .223. Love it! Hard to beat good steel for range fun!
I bought six of them and they are all consistent and good quality. A great deal overall and I am very happy with the purchase.
Quality targets, reasonable prices, fast shipping. I think they are great. I will buy more in the future.
I purchased several of these targets in various sizes. Brought them out to my range and gave them beating; so I thought. Only the paint I put on went missing. Granted, I was only shooting 357 magnam from 30 yards. Never put a dent in them. Great targets! Reasonable shipping cost and delivery.
Great target, it withstood many rounds of 45 Collt and 45 acp , without even a dimple in the steel. I plan to purchase other gong targets from ShootingTargets7 in the future.
Having purchased softer (and less expensive) steel gongs and hearing them go "clunk" when hit, I was hesitant in ordering this 10" gong. But I took a chance. THESE ARE THE REAL DEAL, FOLKS! They perform just like on your favorite videos and sound off with a satisfying "CLANG!" When hit. I can only imagine how the larger ones would perform. Now I can't vouch for how durable they would be under large caliber rifle fire, but I would assume they would hold up as well as any other AR500 steels I've seen in videos (which is very well!) However, being a competitive pistol shooter, I can attest that this steel target can take repeated hits with 9mm, 40 cal, 45 acp and 44 magnum and still come out unfazed. Yessir, these are what I have been looking for and once again look forward to reordering and receiving in a very timely manner some more of these great steels.
We started with the 12", and worked our way down to the 10" at the same distance, then to my brother's 8", 6", and were consistently shrinking our groups. So much better than shooting paper, we just put a mist of white spray paint on them a few minutes prior to shooting.
Ordered this 10" gong along with two others (8" & 12"), and got a 4" gong free. I also ordered 4 of the mounting kits. Mounted all four gongs to a 2 X 4 - 8ft long, and then hung the set in two fence posts designed for fence rails. Looks and functions great. Gongs work great with .380, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP so far. Hanging kits work excellent and present the targets at just the right angle. Shipping was extremely fast, took only like 3 days max to get to NC. I would definitely recommend these targets to someone interested in setting up a shooting range, and would also recommend purchasing them from this site.
I got a 10" plate and an 8" plate and they are awesome. I don't want to shoot anything but steel now. I will definitely be getting more.
I purchased a 10, 8, & 6 and received a free 3". After several hundred rounds there isnt so much as a small dent in any of them. I absolutely will be purchasing more.
set this up for larger hand guns ( 38,357 mag and 45 lc ) at 50 feet and they take all you can give them, not even a scratch and on the 4th of july they got the crap shot out of them but they took all we could give them
Shot everything I had at it. 45 ACP, 44 Mag, 357 Mag, 9mm, 40 Cal, 380, 223, 5.56, 308 and 7.62 x 39 without a single dent. Impressive...... Thanks for the great product at a great price....
Bought this with several other sized gongs and IPSC target to change up shooting experience at the range. Can see hits clearly and with his mounting kit really is good price and product which will excel any shooters ability.
So after 16yrs in military and law enforcement I've seen tons of steel targets but honestly I order 4-6 targets every pay check thanks to the quality, customer service, and price. Going to have a 50 piece of Marks targets on my personal range by the end of the year and I'll be teaching all my courses at home instead of borrowing time on someone else range. Thanks for just flat out, kicking ass!
love this, use my AR and at 75yrds shooting 5.56 fed. and not even a scratch. sounds great too. bye bye paper and cardboard targets it's all steel from here on. thanks!
Purchased 10, 8,6 inch targets and received free 4" as a bonus. My personal range now offers varying targets affording us abilty to change distance and target acquisition challenge to our training. Will buy several more as price, quality, and service is top notch. I am handicapped and steel gives immediate feedback lessening need to walk back and forth or check spotting scope to make shorting adjustments. Molon Labe,!
I have shot paper targets for over 2 years after receiving my 10"gong which I will say is a GREAT product and GREAT PRICED I will never go back to walking back and forth to change them out. Thanks again for a great product and FAST service
Hill country rancher
I ordered a 3/8-10" gong and have shot it with .45 & 9mm and it really helps with practice, so I ordered another on too. The chain kits are a nice convenience so I'm glad I bought them too. Shipping was fast. The targets easily handle these pistol rounds and have enough weight that they don't bounce around too much after quick multiple hits. The .45 rocks them more of course, but not any damage to the plates at all. Great product for target use.
I bought an asst of the 3/8th gongs to practice multiple target shooting strings. Shooting Targets 7 had the lowest price I could find for Ar500 targets. I had nearly given up on buying steel until I found these. Quality is very good, cuts are smooth and uniform. The negatives: The target's flat surfaces did have a slight patina so were not completely smooth. The targets come in with a sooty residue covering them, so they needed a good washing prior to painting. Not a negative, but...3/8th are not that loud when shot with .22 LR....which is the main reason I wanted these....now I need to buy some 3/16th targets.
I purchased several different diameters of these 3/8" targets. I've only shoot 9mm at them, but they work great. No damage to the targets after a couple of thousand rounds. They paint back up and keep on giving me tons of fun. I think these are a great value for the money!
It works as well as I expected it to. I'll probably be buying more in the future.
Great product. Arrived quick, low price, stops bullets. What more could you ask for? Will be using for many years to come.
Received the order in great shape, sooner than I expected. I ordered the 10 inch and 6 inch gong targets and received the 3 inch gong free. I have not used the gongs yet, but will be using them this spring. Thanks for having the chart on your webpage to tell us which gong to use with each rifle. I was going to order the 1/2 inch gongs but saw from your chart the 3/8 inch would do just fine. I have already recommended your company to other people.
I bought the 6", 8", and 10" plates with the mounting kits. Very heavy duty for the fire arms I use. I was happy to learn that they will also with stand a .308 round which I shoot offend. Time and shots will tell how well they holdup on the range.
This target has taken hundreds of hits from 15 - 50 yds with .40 caliber rounds and with a shot of paint looks like new. The mounting kit angles the target downward and most if not all deflections appear be stop within 5-6 feet of the target.
I purchased this 10" AR500 Gong 3/8" and I am giving this product and the Company "FIVE STARS". I and my 3 friends went to the range last Sunday and we shoot this target with 9mm, 40cal, 45cal, .223 and 308 and no damage at all. The product and service are both excellent. Actually it is much cheaper to order this metal target direct to the company than go to Amazon. I Ordered both10" and 8" (I didn't get a chance to try this yet - I will comeback for the review) and they gave me 3" gong target for "FREE".
great quality at a fantastic price. targets are sharply cut, nothing sloppy about these. I will definitely be purchasing more of these ... in fact did after I received my first order!
We love our steel targets, 10"/ 6" & 3". The 3" target is a bit hard to hit but the 6" & 10" are the perfect size. I will suggest buying the plate hanging kit, it works great!
These 10" gongs are fun to shoot and nice ring when hit.
I ordered The 10" And The 8" Gong Plus The HangingkKits. Excellent Quality.I Shoot The Steel With My Ar-15 And 9Mm, And .40 And Not Even A Dent In The Steel. The Hanging Kit Makes It Sit At The Perfect Angle To Direct The Bullet To The Ground. IWill Definitely Buy More Steel From Shooting Targets 7
I recently purchased 7 (6 with one free) gongs from 4" to 10" and could not be more pleased. The 3/8" gongs were of high quality and I received them within a few days. They were very fun to shoot and 9mm and .45 rounds give a nice ring without the slightest dent in the target. I recommend buying the hanging chains when you make your purchase. I attempted to use rope which snapped from the impact of the round and I have since placed a separate order for chains.
I bought 3 of these and 1 4" gong and could not be happier with them. I shopped around a good amount before finding them here and it was the lowest price around.
Mahetok 556 shooter
had one already, loved it, shot the heck out of it, still looks like how i got it except for the paint job. but it was lonely out there so I got him a friend :)
I was really please to stumble across this website and their products. I've been looking to get some steel targets for a while now but haven't found a price that I could stomach. Mark at ShootingTargets7 provides an excellent product at a price that us frugal shooters can afford. I have already told several of my friends about them and they have since placed orders and I know they will be pleased with how they spent their money. The free shipping is a great deal as these targets are heavy. One thing I would do differently in the future is order his chain mounting kits for the targets. I thought I could save a little money myself buying the chain and bolts and replicating what he suggests to mount and I think I actually spent more money on the hardware, and I had to spend my time running to the store and cutting the chain down into lengths. It's refreshing to find such a great product at a price that is affordable. My only suggestion to Mark is to maybe ship the targets in a slightly thicker box as the targets were starting to punch through the side a little bit. But I can't complain as it was free shipping.
Very nice gong, will buy again, great price and quality.
I use this gong for long range shooting at 600 yards+. I've painted it white to aid in sighting the shot, but I can tell from the ring when its been hit. This has been a great addition to my range time and I am looking forward to getting the bullseye target for serious precision work. I will always recommend Mark and Shooting Targets 7 to anyone looking to get some quality targets!
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.
I bought a full set and could not be happier . The only person that is not happy is the mailman . These targets are of a super quality and are a little heavy and will last a long time . It is so nice to be able to hear the bullet strike and not have to look for the hole .
Unfortunately I've been to busy with work and winter wind storms to set up my targets. I did purchase 6 gongs (10" 8" 6" two of each And received a free one. Anything over $100 dollars is free shipping) I have a couple other steel targets already. I enjoy shooting them, and no more going out to change your paper targets. They appear to be well made. I, my kids and grandkids will get years of use from these. Thanks. Looking forward to doing more business with you later. Ray.
Way too much fun! My ammo consumption has gone up since these arrived. I've seen some complaints about excess scale when delivered, all 10 of mine were very clean. I wiped them down with acetone and painted them.
I ordered 4 10" gongs on a Wednesday Night. On Saturday I had 4 10" gongs at the range. There first time out, they withstood over 750 hits from .22LR, .17HMR, 5.56mm, and .308 without anything more than a couple bruises. I know will get many range visits out of these targets. They definitely improve my time shooting. I spend more time shooting down range rather than setting up targets. Thanks shootingtargets7 for your products.
Bought the 10" 8" and 3" for use at my hunt club. We don't have a designated shooting range, so in the off season I string these between the trees using chains and ropes and let the pistols and rifles have at it. My Wife and I love them. Much more fun than paper or empty cans. I bought a can of florescent orange spray paint from the hardware store and touch it up before each use. Honestly, I had a hard time getting my wife to shoot with me, now that I bought these, she wants to go more often. I don't say anything I just load up the truck with a smile!
I received the 10,12, and 8 inch gongs as well as a free 4" gong. Shipping was free as it was over $100.00 order. Just built 4 home made target stands out of rebar and am hoping to give them a shot as soon as the weather warms up a bit
I got 5 of theses targets for Christmas (All different sizes). I have shot them with .556 NATO and 45 ACP , the targets took the hits with no problem. You can sure tell when you get hits, even when your out over 100 yards. Great targets, great price, great customer service, and quick shipping.
I have spent about 20 shooting the target from this sit and the have surpassed my expectations. I have taget ranging from 4" to a 10" out to 800 yds. I have.shot everything from 22lr to 300win mag at them and they don't even have a.knick in them. Price can't be bet I will be buying more soon.
I shoot a lot, and shooting a lot can use up a lot of paper. I decided to start using steel targets, and I am so happy that I have tried shooting steel. Shooting Targets 7 delivered my targets fast and cheap. The quality of the targets are very good, and the 10" gong is one of my favorite targets so far. It rings loudly, and is not too hard to hit. I love shooting steel, and will definitely come back to buy more.
I bought two of these as a 12" an I can't say enough good things, they are solid and sound great! I have shot heavier rounds and they just sing out all the way down to 22 pistols at 50 yards and you can hear that little ting! Love it! They have a nice clean edge, good weight, they just work.
well made targets at a great price
I live in Vermont, and with 3' of snow, hiked a 8", 10", 12" and a wee 4", with 20' of chain into the woods..... For a temp set up... Way worth the smile on our 3 faces! No more paper, I'm not a marksman, going for sub groups....
These 3/8 gongs are the perfect size to set up at different distances for 3-gun. I shoot my beretta 9mm at 10yds-25yds, my mossberg shotgun at 25yds-50yds, and my AR15 from 50yds out to 100yds and beyond. There is no doubt when you get a hit. When I get particular, I throw a little white spray pant on them between sets to see where I am hitting. These gongs really hold up under 3-gun punishment and make 3-gun practise super fun.
Delivery was quick and products came packaged nicely. Just what we have been wanting at our private range. Will probably be ordering more.
Don't be fooled by the imitations out there. These are real AR500 steel and will take a beating. Going forward I will only by my steel targets from shootingtargets7. Easy 5 stars.
Great product. Great service. Can't say anything more. You won't be disappointed.
I purchased the 10", the 6" and the mounting kit for my home shooting range. The products were shipped very fast and everything was there in the package. These Targets are GREAT! You know from the sound that you hit the target and after you're finished shooting all you need to make them look better is a can of spray paint. If you are thinking about buying I suggest that you get the mounting kit with extra repair links. You will not ever regret your purchase, I've recommended them to my friends on Facebook. Buy em' !
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.
Been shooting with 22-250 and 7mag at 400-600 yards and it doesn't even put a dent in it....
Don't know what a "Vice Presidente" drill is? It's a name we made up when we found that the 10" round gong targets weren't going to work well for a regular "El Presidente" drill because they swing so much after the first pistol bullet hits them that the second (double tap) shot is difficult. And this drill is difficult enough already! So our modified drill: three rounds in the pistol and at least three in the spare magazine; back to target, pistol in holster; when timer starts, turn 180ֲ÷ to face targets, rack slide to get pistol from condition three to condition zero, and place _one_ shot (not _two_ like the El Presidente drill) on each target; drop (now empty) magazine and reload; put another one shot on each plate, which by now (if you're as slow as we are) are no longer swinging much. Hella fun! Targets show no damage at all from hundreds of hits from .45 ACP and 9x9mm from seven to ten yards. Also put some 12 gauge birdshot and 00 buckshot on them from 10 yards with no damage, but good effect, especially with the buckshot... need to re-engineer the hanging hardware for the chains, now, as that impact sends the plate flying and bent my screw eyes open a bit. Recommended... especially for the price.
Delivery was quick and products came packaged nicely. Took them to the range and was very pleased. Stood up to 5.56 rounds with no issues. Loved hear the ping with each hit. Accidentally shot one with a 7.62x54R armor piercing round and it barely dented it. I wouldn't recommend using these types of rounds but it just shows how durable the plate is.
Great sized gong for a great price very quality metal highly recommend.
great price, mounting hardware makes it a piece of cake. Had lots of fun shooting!
I have purchased 3 targets and mounting kits from Mark spoke with him personally about possibly doing some silhouettes in 3/8" AR500, as far as the targets I do have they're all great have shot well over 1000 round of each .22, 9mm, 40S&W, .45 ACP and 30-06 springfield with not so much as a blemish. I will absolutely buy more.
Ya'll pay attention to your ballistics charts and these targets will last you SEVERAL lifetimes !
Good target, fast shipping.
Showed up very quickly made a large order. Postman delivered over three days said the packages were heavy, so he only delivered one each day. Targets, stand and parts were easy to set and excellent quality. Loads of fun. A .223 at 100 yards will put a small pit in the target just like mark said they would. No issue at 200 yards.
I used to go to the range with paper targets and was constantly patching them or setting the back up. This amounted to a loss of valuable shooting time. With my AR500 3/8" gongs and magnetic stencil, I am spending more time shooting and less time fixing targets. I set one at 100 yards, 200 yards, 300 yards and 400 yards. With my Sig 516 patrol rifle, I can unload a 30 round magazine shooting up and down the range. All I hear is "ping, ping, ping" These have definitely improved my shooting. I am much faster at target acquisition and accuracy. After a six or so magazines, I just go down range and use the magnetic stencil and repaint them in no time. Thanks Mark for such great products.
Great targets. Great service. Great business. Will tell everyone I know to buy their targets here.
Great targets. Plates came in quick and was shooting by the weekend. Will definitely be purchasing more AR500 targets again.
Gong nicely cut - easy to paint with white spray primer. Mounting kit easy to use & works very well - downward angle deflects lead spray safely into the dirt. Overall, highly recommended...
The product looks great, with just a little cleaning it painted up nicely. Have not been able to shoot at it yet. But very pleased with the order and shipping process. I'm sure it will work as advertised. I would and wil recommend this to all my friends. The free 4" gong was a pleasant surprise.
This is actually my second order of this product. I would go the range with a family member shooting on the other lane next to me. After hitting their paper target a couple of times @ 100 yds., they would start hitting my steel target instead! So I got them their own! Much more fun with an immediate report to confirm a hit!
These are fun targets to shoot
I bought 3, 10 inch with mounting kits and got a bonus 3 inch plate. Great, price, simple and very fast shipping. I will buy again......
Look, if you are on the fence about these targets then get off of it now. I have ordered 4 targets of various sizes including the mounting kits, and each time has been at a discounted price with fast processing and shipping. They are a great investment and so much fun you will not go back to paper. It is nothing like setting your targets up one time and not having to walk a hundred yards to change it. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
Great product you just can't go "Gong". I mean wrong. You just can't go wrong.
I recently purchased a set gongs ranging from 4 - 10 inches and am very please with price quality and timely deliver. Have set them up and mixture of sizes has produced a fun and challenging setup. It is great fun to hear the "ding" when you hit the target and a great improvement over paper targets.
The quality of the targets are great. I just fired over 600 rounds at it and it's clear these will last a lifetime.
This is a great product and was a lot of fun to shoot. After LOTS of rounds, I washed the surface and repainted with Rustoleum primer and it is as good as new. I bought an assortment of sizes and I am very pleased with my purchase. I made a large sawhorse with $7 brackets and 2x4's from HomeDepot and easily suspend the 6 targets that I bought. A very inexpensive set up with some excellent targets provides a lot of entertainment. I highly recommend these.
I recently purchased a 10, 6, and 3 inch and am very pleased with the quality. Just paint, hang, and fire away! Looks like they will last forever. I shoot 9mm and .223.
I bought the plates and took them to the range and banged on them with the 9mm pistol. It was a hoot to get instant feedback via movement of the plate and the clanging noise. I found myself shooting a lot more since I didn't have to hike down to see how I was doing by looking at the paper targets I normally use. But it was when I took them to a group shoot that I was impressed the most. I put them out for my buddies to shoot. AR's, AK's. were the norm with lots of various pistol calibers. We had a lot of paper targets, but it didn't take long till everyone was drawn to the metal targets. Again, instant feedback was the reason why. We started out pretty far away, but as the day progressed, we moved closer and closer doing drills that challenged our speed and shooting skills. I must admit, as close as we were, I thought for sure my metal plates would be toast till we were done. They were taking such solid hits that the frame work I had them hanging from fell over a couple time. Well, when all was said and done, and we had dumped a couple hundred rounds into them, I was super impressed to find that only hits on the very edges showed any type of actual damage to the plates. I had painted them white, and most of the paint was gone. But the plates themselves were in great shape. Even my buddies were amazed at how well they held up to the brutal pounding we gave them. I can't say the same for the chains, as we shot the crap out of them, and repeatedly broke them, but could get them handing again so we would pound on the plates some more. OK, I'm convinced you're putting out a quality product. In fact, I'm hoping to order more in the near future. And I think I may order some of the chain repair links you offer too.
This Gong size is great for long distance rifle shooting. Very satisfied with the quality of metal, cut, shipping and website resource support. I am now a proud owner of the 3', 8", 10' and 12" gongs. Mark is right you'll have so much fun with these gongs be prepared in shooting a lot more ammo! Shooting Targets 7 really goes out of their way,sparing no expense in providing a top-notch & safe shooting experience.
