    Doogy, come on friend, I’ve seen your trick shot videos. You would not have an issue with a 1/4″ Bulls eye at under 20 yds. That size KZ is just to make it easier to hit the regulation min 3/8″ KZ in AAFTA field target matches.

    True, the squirrels around here are a little nervous… Lol

    Great looking targets. How thick is the metal on your targets? Will they hold up to larger caliber air guns? .20   .25    .30 ??I love your artistry…… they look outstanding.
    Thanks for showing your targets really cool.

    Richard, the targets are 1/8″ hardened steel. They will take up to a .22 at 32 FPE without any serious damage. They are harder then the Remington targets. I can make them in thicker metal for .25 cal. At .30 cal they would need to be larger to support the hit but can be done. I made a spinner for my friends FX Boss .30 cal, but at 40 yds, the boss could not get either of the 3/4″ paddles to spin. He uses it with a Sam Yang .45 cal and spins the larger paddle a few times, and wings the smaller paddle around well. 

    I can make the targets to fit the caliber the shooter wants. I would not go beyond .25 unless someone wants and expensive target. I charge $50.00 for a standard target and $55.00 for the spring loaded tree targets. ($45.00 to clubs)  Thicker metal would add a little to the price. I included some of the designs I make and the  heavier Gamo replacement plates in the last photos. They are for people that have the Gamo targets and want a heavier face plate, or design. I make whatever a person wants and made to order… Of course all targest have stencils that I make for the paint and are almost perfect copies, but they are competently hand manufactured so they are not CNC made. I use a plasma torch and hand grinders, sanders, and files to make them…. The advantage is a person can request any animal, person, etc and metal wgt and get a custom target at less then the price of the the custom target makers, and stronger then the mass produced retail targets. I stand behind my targets and they were used in the 2015 Nationals, and worked flawlessly through the heavy, cold rain that occurred!  

    Here is the spinner for the .45 cal… with the support pegs that were not needed…

    I love the Alien target, he looks like he needs a shot right between the eyes. Great targets, I hope you enjoy FT as much as I do.

    I do enjoy field target! I am leaving tomorrow for our monthly club match that is 3 1/2 hrs from my house. I will help set up the targets and sight in area and shoot a little with the property owner. Then stay at a motel overnight for Saturday’s shoot. Trying my hand at pistol FT in preparation for the Cajun Classic next month.

    I am shooting a Styer LG110 FT freshly tuned by Alan Zasadny for the first time since well ng my Daystate. Also shooting a Brocock Am X in pistol as I am not steady enough with my Crosman 1720T. Should be fun…

    Thats some nice work, I guess using a .30cal is out of the question lol I picked up a FT target today to play around with at the range when im not popping squirrels in the head.
