Heavy, but finally a plinking target
Reviewed by Natchez from Reno, NV on Friday, June 18, 2010
Took this target out into the NV desert and had some fun shooting .22 LR at it. It worked fine. We used it at about 30 yards with a rifle and it seemed fine. The instructions say 100 yards for a rifle, 30 yards for a pistol, but the targets are only 4" each. It would be impossible to hit at 100 yards for most kids, even with a scoped .22. At 30 yards it was just fine. My nephew had a real blast shooting about 200 rounds at it. There was no apparent damage to the target at all; just the lead splatter. This is the first of the swinging type targets I have had that is heavy duty enough to really work and to hold up. It is over 30 lbs., so a bit of a pain to carry. But, otherwise a fine target. You will have to repaint it each time as the lead splatter covers/removes the paint up quickly. I did not use the stick on targets, as they would last just the one use. But, nothing a can of spray paint can't handle. If you do not mind the size and weight, this seems to be a good product for plinking.
