Question Looking to buy my first steel targets, is this a good deal?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/190669462121...#ht_500wt_1198

I want something like this with two plats that i can change out when needed. it's around $100 shipped and that is the price i'm looking to pay. I know the 3/8 thick steel wont last to long when hit with 223 and 7.62x54r and 3.06 but i plan on replacing it with 3/4 steel later. I am just looking a hanging target and a stand for around $100 that is transportable, am i asking to much?

anyone else know of something like this that a calgun vendor makes?

I found them, i couldn't find anyone that sold a stand and the targets like these for around the same price (even without shipping). But i'm slow so i'll look again, maybe i missed it.

I've worked with Kendall at Bobcat Steel twice. Great.

Give Big John's Iron Works a call -

http://bigjohnsironworks.com/

You may want to think of spending a little more now - you won't regret it -

I have purchased a dueling tree & a hostage silouette from them and they are easy to work with and their workmanship is excellent.

Plus I can't seem to hurt the AR500 construction.

Widener's has 6" circles for $17 a piece. I have bought a bunch of their AR500 3/8 targets and have loved every one of them.

+1 for the Widners deal.

I went with the 8-piece package and that includes shipping via USPS flat-rate box. My postman was really pist-off at the weight of the package..

I’ve dealt with BigJohn and Targets 4 Less from here. Couldn’t beat the price shipped AND the quality of the targets.

I got these from Targets4Less and if you need a stand, build some out of a couple 2x4s. Sturdy and cheap to replace.




The round is more than a 1’ diameter

Big John’s Hostage - GREAT deal!


The small pattern is #7 @ 12yrds - Had so much fun.

IMO,

Keep it local and support a fellow calgunners.
