Played a wedding gig recently, and decided to spend the money on some new field targets, as I don't really need another gun right now (yes, this is heresy, I realize!!!!). But I'd really like to have an FT target selection, now that I'm into it hook, line and sinker.

I did some on-line scouting, and ordered 4 targets, one from Rhino (all he had), and three from Yegua Target Corp. I wanted something different as I do have 4 Gamo squirrels and will probably get more, but as I say, I wanted something different. I got an interesting square target from Rhino, but no picture of this particular one - it's called a duomatic. It's not an FT target, but a practice one with a rotary head that varies the hole size. It's auto resetting. I'll photograph and post it when I get it - it's on the way now.

Here are the "regular" targets I ordered from Yegua:

But the piece de resistance is a custom target I'm having made up on the following picture. Any former musicians in the forum will know exactly why I did this! The kill zone will be right on his back, on the spine just below the shoulders. Any professional orchestral musician has a fantasy about dropping one of these suckers from the balcony boxes off to the side, James Bond villain style. The fellow at Yegua likes the idea enough that he might make it an item! He couldn't stop laughing when I emailed him the picture. Now, gotta get him to make some zombies with cranial killzones, in preparation for the Zombie Apocolypse! :twisted:

Oh, this is getting to be more fun every day! :mrgreen: Please pray for me!

Those are some good looking targets. Going to try and get a few Gamo's in the next bit. Then I will see about making a few more.

Too nice to shoot! Fortunately, I never hit anything. Mine could be re-sold as 'new'...
