Shooting Gongs

This would make pistol shooting a lot more fun.

AR500 Metal Targets

I'd be on them in a heartbeat if I had the property to shoot on.

I'm going to order a 4 incher. With a rope I'll hang it between a couple of trees. if I didn't have neighbors within hearing distance I would buy several and frame them up like in the picture

Always more fun to ring the "Gong".

They look like they can take a hit. I had one a long time ago, and it was a swinger in its own metal frame. After awhile it would no longer swing as I kept hitting the hinge. With a rope set up, I'll just retire the old rope and keep going with the new. I might have to order some additional ones and set up a small training course.

The lower picture looks like the range I shoot at. Shooting steel is a whole bunch of fun.

Can't beat shooting steel, very rare to shoot paper any more. This is the granddaughter in my backyard range.
I have painted the plates white now for better visibility.

Good on ya for takin' out the youngin'.

The only reason I shoot at paper is when I'm too lazy to drive very far, so I go to the indoor range. Paper has it's place for determining exactly where you're shooting. But I much prefer shooting at cans or something else that moves when I hit it.

With the hand cannons you have I'd suggest you get the 1/2" plates.

I also found a heavy gauge steel pipe about 4 inches dia. and 5 feet long, that I'll cut up. Way up in the mountains I know of a slide area that is remote. Next spring I'll set all this up for shooting, and hopefully it won't get ripped off. I doubt it will. Good reason to ride the motorcycle at least once a week to shoot up a still primitive shooting setup.
