I have 4 Gamo squirrels and would like to get another half dozen or so targets. But I'd like a bit of variety. Can someone suggest a link or two that I can view of some others that might be available?? Thanks! :D

If I'm not mistaken you can get interchangeable face plates for the Gamo targets on Amazon.

Thanks! Yes, those are available but I'm looking for something different. And I found it! See my new post.

I just got three of their target faces and the quality is fine - not like the Rhino targets which seem to be made by NASA for display in a museum of modern art - but perfectly serviceable. We'll see how the guys like the 1" KZs at the next match...

I stumbled upon these. For some reason there's no link to the Gamo faceplates off the SteelPlinkers homepage - http://www.steelplinkers.com/GamoFaceplates.html

I have some of his other targets and the build quality is top notch.

You're welcome. Oh, rhino targets are also available again. I have five sitting at the border awaiting pickup.

My herd of Rhino critters is expanding - just picked up the latest five.

I also got a 3000' roll of 200# twisted Dacron line for about $50 from funwithwind.com - seems to be stretch free!

I also stopped into the Dollar General in Ogdensberg, NY, where they had cord 'spools' for $1 - beats $3+ at Ottawa hardware stores.

And if you find it too easy BJP, I have 1" and 1/2" reducers for these targets as well! :twisted:
