I'm not certain where but I remember seeing a competition using a similar setup. Very cool.

I remember a bit now, you would shoot a series picking where you woudl stop. Soon as you missed you were out. You proceed until you missed or had a less result from other competators. Time limit per session so you couldn't just sit back and wait for someone to out shoot your mark. Something like that. High pressure. Seems fun.

The KYL targets certainly aren't a new idea or a new design but I wanted one. It was just a matter of adding the pieces to the laser cut order I had going in. The legs and cross bar are EMT conduit and spacers are pvc pipe.

Great job Rob I saw a design on the net for this target. you have executed it well looks like lot of fun. Rob 27 had us all going at HAHA one day with his, sure we will get into yours as well. Maybe Rob 27 will donate his trophy as a fun fudd side shoot. that would be a blast. lol :D

5pts. for head, 3 for body, 1 for wings or legs
Any range. I've shot this at 20 yards only - a tough target.

Great looking target Rob G!

I would be happy to bring the trophy to the Fudd - maybe slide this in between a couple lanes, have a tie breaker at the end of the day....

Might slow down some of the better shooters if they take their time and hit 5 or 6... some of us will likely be done after just a shot or two!

Chris plans on bringing them (we have 2 sets) down to Port Colborne for the match. I'm not sure yet what or how he is planning on setting them up.
