Things I liked: Does just what it's supposed to. Pellets, BB's deflect downward instead of random angles. This doesn't mean you can forgo shooting glasses at shorter ranges but with any kind of soft ground (ie grass) there shouldn't be any ricochet problem. I use mine in my shop with BB pistols. I put down a movers blanket about 6'x8' in front of the target and I've had no bounce back from appox. 7 yards.
Things I would have changed: I would like to have one a little larger say 18x18 or so.
Things I liked: Directs the bb's/pellets downward and allows for collecting projectiles. I found mounting one in a big flat screen tv box works great and when you cut out the side your shooting in, all bb's go directly to the bottom of the box. I use this in the basement but would work just as well outside. When hitting the target, a noticeable "gong" sounds out unmistakably sounding a HIT!
Things I would have changed: Wouldn't change anything. Easy put together design, but solid as a rock. Perfect for this type of target shooting.
What others should know: Purchased this from Pyramid air and manufacturer forgot to include the two bottom feet that hold it upright. When I contacted PAir about the issue, they had it corrected within the week. Extremely friendly customer service and stood by their product even though they are not the manufacturer. "Perfect" target for Cowboy Action type airguns. Five Stars to PAir!
Things I liked: I liked the construction, nice and heavy for air gun use. The legs have provisions for either sand bags or stakes for use on windy days. The target face is also at a downward angle to deflect the pellets either to the ground or into a container to recover the fired pellets.
Things I would have changed: At this time, not a thing!
What others should know: I first shot it with a R7 at 30 feet, the paint or coating did not even chip. Next up was a RWS 54 in .22 at 50 yards, nice splatter from the pellet but the coating stayed intact! Next up was a UK Patriot in.25 at 50 yards. Coating stayed intact, no dents in the plate. Finally came the mighty Condor in .22 at 50 yards. Coating still looked great although it was knocked off where the pellet hit and NO DENTS! Target didn't rock and I could hear a nice loud impact of the pellets. I just may buy a couple more for some extended range plinking with the PCP (100 yards and more). I give this target the full 5 stars!!

Two Questions: (1) The written description lists 177 lead pellets at a max of 700 FPS or about 10 FPE. The video linked on the description page shows max of 22 FPE. Which is correct? (2) Is there a harm or danger in using 22 soft lead pellets from a Crosman 2240 on the target? Thanks, Jim
The target can handle up to 22 FPE, but not at 5 yards. I would say 10-15 yards if you're going to go that high. You'll likely dent the plate with that kind of power though. This is really intended for CO2 pistols and rifles. That said, your 2240 shouldn't be an issue.
