These can take a beating and they save you from having to keep buying boards . With the price of lumber through the roof it makes perfect sense to protect your boards. Highly recommend these
Good idea but not necessary if using bigger steels.
The entire setup was very easy to install and is very well made. I have used the targets from 7 - 100 yards and have had no issues at all. I will definitely be buying more targets and t-post mounts in the near future.
Easy addon to protect your stand from stray rounds. Considering what 2x4s cost these days the armor plate is a good investment.
Excellent quality and a quick smooth transaction definitely five star experience.
Great product very satisfied with the quality.
Great Quality Good Value, It Works Like It Should. Easy To Install, I Am Very Happy With The Two By Four Protector Thanks Again. Clay Mason,,,,,,,,
I wanted to wait to write a review, after hitting this 2x4 wood protector several hundred
times with 9mm and 45 fmj I can say yes it works. My friends have the same set up but with out the protector and they have to keep replacing the 2x4's. The price is right and it does work.
Our Club has 4 Saturday practices a month and one 5 stage Steel Challenge match a month with between 40 to 65 guns w/ everthingy from 22 RF through 45 ACP. I use to have to replace all are target sticks evey 5 to 6 months. We have been using the stick armor for almost two years and I just flipped the armor on one target stick 2 weeks ago (because someone shot 5 9mm holes below the armor / so they missed the steel target by more that a foot low), but we have not replaced any target sticks in that time.
One of the other local clubs saw them and they ordered them for their range. Great produce!!
Has seen plenty of use and still holding up great, saving me money on not having to replace the wood each trip. Great quality and great prices!

All is good, great product and shipping.
I use Shootingtargets7 for my Steel Wood armor on all of my wood uprights. I've used the same wood uprights for 3 years of heavy use at my gun club. All direct shots with pistols are stopped without any damage to the wood, and I've yet to have to replace a single bolt either. Highly recommend this wood armor.
An absolute must for my target stand to keep my son and wife from arguing about who shot the 2x4 and not the steel target. Highly recommend!
These strips protect the 2X4 from direct hits and scatter from lead hitting steel target. Worth having unless you like replacing 2X4s.
Steel Challenge 2"x4" posts all set to go with two by four armor installed and indicating normal plates (white) and "stop" plates (orange). Back sides of posts have a stamped brass tag that indicates plate size to be used (10" Round, 12" Round or 18"x24" Rectangle) for each post. Quality target accessories from Shootingtargets7!
A must have for protecting the edge of your 2" x 4" lumber in Steel Challenge stages. Color code them to show which target is the "Stop" target. Paint can be applied (and will STICK) after treating the galvanized surface of the armor for 5-7 minutes with cleaning vinegar and rinsing with clean water. Works great.
2"x4" armor is a simple idea that saves off-target hits to the target lumber. If painted to reflect which target is the stop plate it can serve two purposes at once.

I decided to put three on my cross member 2X4 as have a four foot long 2x4.
I'm also set up to have two of these 10 inch 1/4 inch thick for practice shooting.
This will eliminate having to replace the 2X4 after my nephew and my self have
turned lose with our Freedom Ordnance FX9.s with 33 round mags.... and a dozen
more all loaded and ready.
These targets and the stand is the best I've ever used. Every part is heavy duty and
that's what we wanted when cutting loose with a couple thousand rounds in a days
Great pistol targets too.
I recommend the target stands and the steel gong targets by SHOOTING TARGETS 7
Great customer service. I ordered the 3/8 ar500 steel target. Held up great. Even had a guy shoot the S&W 500 at the target. Not even a dimple.
I ordered the 2x4 armor to protect my plate rack. I purchased the "Plate Rack in a Bucket" from MGM Targets but had no way to protect the 2x4 from damage. When I realized the plate hangers had quite a bit of extra room as they slid up and down the 2x4, I realized that I could mount the 2x4 armor plates, but only if I used super-short 1" carriage bolts and then recessed the lock nuts by drilling into the wood behind the targets. It was quite a project. But, it wouldn't have been possible w/o these plates from ShootingTargets7! Thank you!
I purchased MGM Target's "Plate Rack in a Bucket," but I was concerned about punching holes in the 2x4. I needed to find armor that would be safe for handgun use but not too thick that it wouldn't allow the plate hangers to slide on and off the 2x4. The 1/4" armor plates from Shootingtargets7.com were perfect for the job! After priming and painting them (um, my daughter is to blame for the, uh, turquoise one in the middle), I drilled holes and used super-short 1" carriage screws, burying the washers and nuts INSIDE the 2x4 so that the hangers wouldn't hit the end of the bolt on the back. What I have is a bullet-proof design that was only made possible by the armor found here...and a little ingenuity on my part!
Solid construction. Has done everything it said it would and more. Easy install
I am totally and completely satisfied with this product. I love how the 2x4 armor plates look on my target get and I can't wait to take it out to the range for the first time. I doubled them so that I could use this as a rifle target as well as pistol. I wanted the versatility of multiple calibers.
These are great to protect your boards from getting destroyed from low misses.
I have not impacted the plate holder...yet. But, the design is very robust/stout. Definitely a must if purchasing challenge plates.
Just what I needed. Good products from these guys.
I'll be the first to admit it, I'm not the best shot. Got tired of always having to carry an extra 2x4 out to the range because even at 75 yds a post can only take so many hits from a 357 before it's done.
Nice way to save the 2x4 from getting shot at. Thank you
I purchased the Challenge Base, Challenge Cap, & 2x4 Armor with a 12 inch gong together. You will need a 2x4 to span between the base & challenge cap - I used a 4 foot length piece of lumber which gave a good target height for 40 yard shooting. The base assembly was straight forward with 3 nuts & bolts holding everything together. Steel is thick and base is very sturdy. Challenge cap rests easily on top of the 2x4 extending up from the base. No issues with platform stability when holding a 12 inch 3/8 gong target. I'm sure this could easily hold a 24 inch targets weight and still offer great stability. The 2x4 armor simply screws into the 2x4 to protect the exposed wood directly under your target. Knowing that folks will miss the target this will certainly add life to the 2x4. All items other than the 2x4 armor I felt were priced well. This particular item could be sold separately but should be included with an entire target stand purchase. I never make two back to back orders allowing me to use the discount for reviews so maybe offer it up-front. Overall - a great solution of the highest quality, with quick turnaround & shipping. Thank you!
I would never miss my target (not) but my shooting buddies might so spend a little and save a lot. These are easy to install and saves having to replace your 2X4"
This will save you from replacing 2 x 4 supports too often if at all. You'll destroy to mounting screws before you'll damage this armor.
These are a must have if you are setting up your own steel challenge. Brought a 4ft 2x4 section for each target and not one was taken out of commission all day by the kidsâ€™ misaligned, seemingly wild, plinking. Less fussing with the targets meant more time shooting for the adults. Worth it...
Everyone misses. This will keep your 2x4 serviceable for a long time. Perfect fit, easy to install. I painted it the same color as the target and it will be easy to touch up as needed. Don't buy the target without it.
I take alot of new/inexperienced shooters out and use steel targets to keep it exciting. This 2x4 protector is imperative as new shooters will inevitably shoot the 2x4 in half. This is an inexpensive way to keep down time to a minimum.
While 2x4's aren't expensive shopping for them and cutting them down is a pain. Had three hits on my armor out of 350 rounds my first time out and am sure I would have had to replace a 2x4 had I not had the protection. Most of us will eventually jerk down during fast shooting. This is cheap insurance which will save you time and money.
Bought these along with the IPSC Torso targets and stands. They were a little difficult to install as my drill bit wasn't long enough to go all the way through the long side of the 2x4. Not the product's fault, just a reason to go back to hardware store and buy something new. One of the bolts stripped out when trying to install, they barely went through the 2x4 and wasn't enough thread to get a good bite on the nut. Would recommend another 1/2" longer bolts. They took several hits, both direct and splatter from impacts and held up great. Would probably have to replace the 2x4 already if not for these.
I didn't install these right away...I was too excited to test my new steel. I will install on the next set of "posts" and I have confidence that my posts will last longer with the protection this will provide.
A steel plate...saves replacing wood...it works!
While sighting my scope, I noticed I was slowly chopping down my 2x4. Therefore, I ordered an armor 2x4 plate, worth the investment.
Screws break easily
While these are cheap, if anyone shoots the screw head it breaks and then the whole piece swivels down (if shot on top) or swings left and right moving forward. Better option would be to enlarge the holes and run carriage bolts through that can be shot with pistol like other manufacturers do. I'm going to modify mine since I bought 16 of them. #Marks Note: We will look into this for future versions thank you for the review.
I made the target height 5' 10" so I'll have get another one to fill the area that may get struck by low bullets. You need a longer drill bit to install this armor or you will need to drill from both sides. Good product. Good price
