Escondido metals does have pre-made head and full torso silhouette targets. I believe they are both 3/8" AR500. They don't have any mounting/stand system with them, so you'll have to fab your own. There is a water jet company nearby that I have used to put 1/2" carriage bolt holes in the corners. Just weld up an "H" base or build a wood A frame to hang it on. I think the torso sized are selling for $140.

Talked with these guys. They have 3/8" and 1/2" thicknesses AR500 in 4", 6", 8" and 10" rounds.

They also have an 18" x 26" silhouette.

Any reason to go with 1/2" over 3/8", seeing as they are both AR500?

Perhaps longevity. The 1/2" would likely have a longer life but you'll get plenty of life out of the 3/8". The exception here is if you intend to shoot something like 50 BMG at it. You should definitely get the 1/2" for a big rifle caliber like that.

Okay, got a swingin' deal - 7 targets for about $80, one of which was 1/2".

Was not expecting them to be so dirty. Should I just blow the dust off them and spray with Rustoleum, or do I need to do any other prep?

Is that with a bracket?

They have a deal that if you get 4 rounds, all 3/8" thick (1 x 10", 1 x 8", 1 x 6", 1 x 4") for about $70, you get three more for an additional $10, one of which is a 1/2" thick.

No brackets. I stopped at Home Depot and got 2 x sawhorse brackets, 4 x 2x4s (each 4' long), and some hardware at Marshall's (heavy duty chain, grade 8 bolts, etc.).

Spent about $200 total, but I think this is going to last a while.

I wouldn't waste much time in prep. Shooting them will take the paint right off anyway. Give them a quick hose down. Let them dry in the sun. And then hit them with a rattle can in the color of your choice. To that end, if you have a black front sight post, paint them anything other than black.

If you want something easy to set up, doesn't take a lot of room in the vehicle, breaks down and stores easily.... Hang Fast Targets has the solution.

Our system is VERY reactive and has the best sound because the target is mounted by a single bolt.

We offer a 10% discount to all Calguns members code: CALGUNS10
I can have them at your door in Cali in about 3 to 5 days.
