Post subject:  Quad Target

A friend and I wanted quad targets for shooting so we ended up making these.They consist of one target each with a 15mm bull, 25mm bull and a 40mm bull. The frames and feet are galvanized with the paddles and bull being painted. The paddles and bull are 3/16" welded mild steel. The frame is 1/4" steel.

That looks like hours of fun and real good feedback on each shot too.

They are also all the official sizes of WFTF hit zone sizes. That is probably not a coincidence.

Very intriguing design, with feedback on every shot, as Mac says.

No coincidence lol. Seen the idea on another site. We did some re-design to try and simplify the manufacturing process.

They look great. 1/4" steel? I bet they last many generations.

"The paddles and bull are 3/16" welded mild steel"

Rob shot your targets today with .22 impact set at 30 FPE drilled them hard and it was fun making them spin . Very well made indeed. 8)

I told Chris somebody would be hitting them with a 30 fpe gun. I just thought I'd be the first one trying it. Lol Glad you enjoyed them.

Very nice. Do you think they would hold up against .22 lr?

I don't think so. 1/5 scale silhouette targets are specified at 1/4" minimum and these are only 3/16". I think .22LR will destroy them.

[emoji38] as read, 30fpe is good enough for the 'job'~ And I watched the 22lr can easily penetrate a non-stick big pan from 50 yards away on YouTube before... That would be 2 or 3mm thick?!

After a few sessions of shooting we found the 15mm bullseye was bending a bit. It will need a bit of repair. It was generally placed at 10-15 yards and some people were hitting it with 30 fpe guns. Rumor has it that the bullseye might have been introduced to a 40 fpe slug from a Hatsan recently. These targets were intended to be shot with 20 fpe guns. Apart from the paint they're standing up well.
