  • Silhouette target shooting is a phenomenal way to gauge your accuracy as a shooter. This set features the shapes of four animals constructed from heavy-duty steel. Set at different distances, the chicken, pig, turkey and ram targets will help you prove to yourself that youre ready for anything.

    The first match using metal animal silhouettes was held in 1948 in Mexico City. The targets were originally made for centerfire guns. But because rimfire shooters and airgunners wanted to participate, smaller silhouettes were eventually introduced and placed at closer distances.

    There are 4 (four) targets used in silhouette matches: chicken, pig, turkey, and ram. Each target is shot 10 times at the following distances:

 

  • Chicken: air rifle = 20 yards / air pistol = 10 yards
  • Pig: air rifle = 30 yards / air pistol = 12.50 yards
  • Turkey: air rifle = 36 yards / air pistol = 15 yards
  • Ram: air rifle = 45 yards / air pistol = 18 yards


Official rules and match information can be found at these governing organizations: International Metallic Silhouette Shooting Union (IMSSU): www.imssu.org National Rifle Association (NRA): www.nra.org
International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association (IHMSA): www.ihmsa.org
Official Airgun Slynger web site: http://www.airgunslynger.com/
National annual Airgun Slynger competitions held at Pyramyd Air Cup

*These airgun silhouette targets are 1/10 the size of big bore silhouette targets, and are traceable to NRA's Full Scale Standards for Steel Silhouette Targets.

Things I liked: These are great! Can't imagine shooting them at the recommended distances on the back of the package! I can hardly see the chicken at 10 meters!

Things I would have changed: None

What others should know: You need to figure out a good background for shooting at 10 meters indoors, to collect the pellets and avoid ricochet. I am working on that and have had good success.

Things I liked: The metal animals allow you to have fun shooting gallery style. I noticed the little animals hold up to hits from a 10 meter rifle at 25 yards with almost no damage, and at 10 meters with an air pistol they handle the impact well. Nonetheless, they fly off unpredictably and are very difficult to find. The little holes in the base accommodate string or fishing lines, but I tied string around the legs and neck to avoid having the targets tip because they rest on the holding line.

Things I would have changed: Holes should be placed in the upper body rather than the base so the target animals will sit straight.

What others should know: The bright yellow color changes to a kind of greenish hue at a distance in the strong afternoon sun here in northern Nevada. That makes the targets a little harder to see, depending on the background.

Things I liked: Well made! I've shot silhouettes at primitive black powder matches for years. These targets are exactly like the ones i shot years ago except much smaller. It was was like old times, only now an air powered rifle. Thanks for a great product!

Things I would have changed: Nothing

What others should know: Just dont use steel BBs! They won't hurt the targets, but could hurt you or any bystanders...Dave

  • Tony from USA asked:

    How far away should each target be placed? Since they are 1/10 scale does that mean 1/10 full size distance?

    • Tyler from USA:

      You can set them at whatever distances you like, but at the Pyramyd Cup Gunslynger competition, the distances are chickens at 10 yards, pigs at 25, Turkey at 40 and rams at 55.

  • ZAc from USA asked:

    Will these stand up to 22 Mrod?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes

  • David from USA asked:

    What power level are these targets designed for?

    • Tyler from USA:

      I've seen them stand up to 45 FPE
