Target Requests
 
I am always open to new ideas as far as targets go. If there is anything you are interested in that is not commonly found, or you would just like to see us selling a certain type of target, please reply via this thread. If I use your idea, you will get a free target.

Thanks,

TTM

I have a couple ideas:

hostage type targets

along that same line, an add on "bad guy" for the 1/2 scale IPSC(weld on ok)

center "heart" cutout/spinner for 1/2 scale IPSC

dualing tree sold as paddles only, no tubes(cheaper for you to make and ship)

I agree in regards to the dueling tree and hostage target!

I posted a new thread on my DIY dueling tree. To be honest, the tubing is pretty cheap and would not effect the price much. Here is a picture of my dueling tree kit. Again, this is for the "do-it-yourselfer" who has access to some angle iron and a welder.

I have made some really nice products. Let me tell you a story... A guy called me up from Phoenix and wanted to know if I can make him some hostage targets. He said he had one that he wanted duplicated and was wondering if I could do that. I asked him where he got it from and he said he did not know. So, he drove over and we proceeded to make him a really nice reactive hostage type target. He brought it home. A few days later he calls me up and says he wants 30 of them made. I say OK. I posted some pics of this target on the internet and the next day, Salute Targets calls me up and tells me I have duplicated their product...I had no idea.

It is not in my style to blatently copy someone's product, so after speaking with the owner, I gave him my word I would not make them. Here is a picture of the target I am referring to...

Like I said, it is not in my style to blatently copy someone's design. I have made and sold tons of similar ones, but I will not recreate this exact one. I will post some pics (when I can find them) of some pretty sweet reactive hostage targets I have made.

Rimfire paddles for the dueling tree would be cool.

There have been a lot of requests for this. I will be cutting some 1/4" AR500 paddles to slap around for rimfire use. Few weeks out on those.

Probably don't have to use AR500 for rimfire, but I am no expert. :)

You are probably right. I have shot 1/4"mild steel plates with my .40 and though it did not penetrate it, it did ben the steel near the edges. AR500 wont bend as easily.

I was thinking AR steel would be to heavy for rimfire to be able to move the paddle all the way to the other side, even 1/4", but I will volunteer to test your first rimfire paddles. :D

I would like a set of silhouettes for my son to shoot at that are shaped like military vehicles (tank, truck, apc, jet, boat, or just all tanks). I would like the same as game animals (pig, deer, bear, coyote, rabbit). Ideally you could include 5 in a set that will fit in the flat rate box that you sent my IPSC targets in.

TheTargetMan 09-29-2012 12:30 PM

Joe,

I can definitely make you a set. What will he be shooting at them with?

Joe Register 09-29-2012 5:27 PM

.22 and .223/5.56
