Thinking about Steel Targets
« on: September 05, 2016, 04:55:32 PM »
Happy Labor day yall
With Labor Day comes my wallet becoming a bit thinner.
Labor day sales.. Been wanting to purchase some steel targets, no better day than on a day with a sale.

looking at this website and theres a 15% sale today. I also went onto Amazon and searched steel targets and the highest rated one is shootingtargets7's targets. Although I only have a S&W 686 and a SP-01, I'm most likely going to buy an ar15 in the near future, so will be looking at 3/8 AR500 targets.

What steel targets do you guys use/recommend?

I got these from ebay and they work fine for 9mm and 45acp. I bought 5  five foot tall shepherds hooks from Lowes for 12 bucks each. Work great!

It was suggested I buy smaller plates but point was I wanted to hear if I made a hit and the 8" plates were just right for me!  :)

An AR15 at 50 yards does damage them severly!

I have bought several sets of 3/8" targets from shooting7, and have been very pleased with them.  I also but the mounting kit and drive two steel T posts into the ground and attach the chains to the posts using bailing wire.  Works really well.  Lots of movement on the target and they remain angled downward to deflect the spalling down instead of back at you.
