Shooting targets is a popular outdoor activity for gun enthusiasts. This type of activity can be fun and exhilarating, plus it gets you outside in the fresh air and sunshine. This is a fun activity for a group like a gun or motorcycle club to do together and families even enjoy shooting at moving targets.
In the past, metal rifle targets have been poorly constructed and even dangerous. When a metal shooting target is made of inferior metal, the bullet can ricochet and cause injuries to those standing around. Metal spinning targets that are manufactured of inferior steel also get damaged and destroyed very quickly leaving you with nothing to shoot at.
Today’s gun enthusiasts enjoy staying in practice for that next big hunting season that’s coming up. In order to keep your skills honed, you must get out on the gun range on a regular basis. In the past gun shooting targets have not performed well leaving shooters disappointed. Traditional gun targets can be difficult and time consuming to set up and they don’t fare well after a few rounds have been shot at them. Often, it’s necessary to stop and go over to reset the shooting targets.
The swinging gong target has always been a favorite of hunters. It is not only useful and versatile, but it can be used for long-range shooting practice. This type of reactive target has a surface area that is large enough to allow a hit even if your zero is slightly off and users have come to enjoy the audible clanging iron sound that it produces. Most shooters can hit it at 1000 yards under good conditions. This is a stationary target though, that will quickly become monotonous to work with.
