Have fun and hone your shooting skills with this sturdy 5-target gallery! Shoot one "hit" flag at a time, and a metal plate flips up to cover it. After all of the metal plates are covering the targets, simply pull the reset cord and begin shooting again.
Tech Tip: Shooting this target with rifles producing over 600 fps will cause the paddles to flip up and back down. If you intend to shoot this target with 600 fps or higher, you will need to increase the distance between the muzzle and target

Things I liked: Small, tough and easy to use. Should hold up a long time and with a little paint always look as good as new
Things I would have changed: The size. 28mm is the size of the "9" ring on the ISSF 10 Meter pistol target. Too challenging for air pistol at 10 meters for biathle or run and shoot. It should go out to 43mm or the "8" ring at a minimum for run and shoot, 59mm or the "Black" on ISSF would even be more appropriate. Also would add weight to the back of the target to prevent bounce back. I had to lean it back with a 1/2" shim and still bounce back occurs 30% of the time
What others should know: It is the size of a ladies shoe box. It is smaller then you would expect. Medium challenge rest shooting and/or rifle out to 25 meters; beyond that you have a good challenge. Very challenging for pistol at 10 Meters which is the minimum distance (actually 10 yards is what is stated on the box). Bounce back of the target cover should be expected more then 50% of the time out of the box. You are going to have to figure out what works for you to stop it.
Things I liked: The steel Target is well made for air guns shooting at 600+ fps makes an audible noise bouncing back and not covering up the hole, should hold up well over time if shooting under 700 fps
Things I would have changed: Targets will bounce back and not cover up the hole if shooting at over 400 fps This should be stated in the description
What others should know: Target mounted to a wood 2"x6" three feet from the floor Shooting at the target at 18 yards bench rested with a Diana 240, 24 or R7 target will bounce back and not cover up the hole. At 15 yards using a Daisy 880 with three pumps the target will bounce back half the time using two pumps the target will stay down and the hole will be covered up. and the hole will stay cover up
Things I liked: It is made of steel. It is nicely painted. The workmanship seems to be good. It is heavy. It is white.
Things I would have changed: The cheapo "string" that is meant to reset the target should be thrown away and replaced immediately. It makes you wonder if this string is the cheapest stuff they could find or if they just didn't look hard enough. I put on mono filament fishing line. And, because the actual target opening areas are so small, unless you consistently hit within 1/2" of the bull at any distance, you do have pellets rebounding and flying around all over the place. So, mount the target to a plank, and then clamp that in place or you will wind up chasing the target around as well. Mounting on a wall is a good idea but only if you have a very, very well protected wall. The best way, in my opinion, is to mount it to a tree outside and even then, protect yourself from rebounds. Glasses are a must.
What others should know: OH YES! Be watchful for the use of the word "Biathlon" here because if you so much as even think about biathlon shooting, you will simply shoot yourself in the foot with this target. By the time this things hits your mailbox, you will have spent $50 for an item that is about NINE INCHES WIDE and SIX INCHES TALL. It is constantly shown to be the same size as another target with animals in it which is more than twice as wide as this is. And, anyone who has ever seen Biathlon shooting knows what size those targets are. With the dimensions of this unit buried in the "way back" of a page, the bell may not ring when you see that the holes themselves are about an inch opening. The good news is simply that if this unit was a large as what the photos make us think it is, the problem would be lifting it. But, heavy as it is, and it is, it is still a tiny little thing that is way less than a foot wide and about 5 or 6 inches tall. Forget about pistols. What did I expect for $50? More.
