princess auto shows these on there website today for $20.00. regular $49.99-(which of course is what I think I paid for mine a year or so ago.) they aren,t too bad-- especially for twenty bucks.

Thanks for the tip Pete, I picked one up yesterday at my local PA store.

I think it's a steal at the price they are selling it for - $20.01.

Used it last night with my non-PAL Princess Auto .177 break barrel & Grizzly flat head pellets, in my basement range. I found it a little hard to see the target in lower basement light, so I put 3/4" round white sticker in middle of ducks. Now much easier to sight & hit. Found that you need to be real accurate with the low powered airgun to ensure targets say down & sometimes needed to hit centre release target twice to get all downed targets to release.

Also, sometimes that flat head pellets flattened and stuck to metal targets. Needed to pull them off. Less of a problem once I installed the white stickers.

No denting on bending on targets as described in the reviews.

All in all, I would rate it a great purchase.

Will try next with a .22 break barrel.

Tried using target with my non-PAL .22 Benjamin Trail & flat head pellets. Much better power to knock down targets. Works perfectly & no denting of targets.

Only complaint, with the scope on the Benjamin Trail, and shooting on my 24' basement range (rested), I have not missed a target yet. Took about 20 shots at it.

Thinking of buying a 2nd one.

Just got mine today and gave it a try. Used my HW85. It does bend and dent. If you hit it hard, the magnet does not catch. For $20, you can't go wrong. Happy with it so far.

I mostly shoot pistols because of short distance in my little garage. most of them won,t knock the ducks down. but my beeman p17 did-- every shot.
