I ordered some targets last summer from Chris Fladzinsky at http://www.targetartllc.com/

Although he doesn't ship to Canada at this time, a friend of mine in Washington took delivery of these targets, and sent them up to me.

They're almost too nice to shoot! Haven't done so, so far. But I did photograph them, and as I can wield a paintbrush not badly, I'll repaint them as they need it. These are well made, superior targets. The mechanisms are rugged, and they work like they're supposed to. Between these and my Gamo Squirrels, I'll be doing my own private FT course in my back 40 now. Unlike the Gamo squirrels, you order these targets from llc with the specified hole size and the direction you want them facing. They are good folks to deal with.

Thought I'd show them to you:

The buck:

The bluejay:

and my fave, the rat, with a rear view of the mechanism

Thanks for looking in. :D

Nice targets. How long did it take to get them?

Yes, good thick steel. About 10 days or 2 weeks from ordering they were delivered to Washington. After that, a couple of months before my buddy brought them up. (We actually met halfway in Cache Creek, and did the fishing thing together for a couple of days, hence the dry grass pictures above :lol: )

Hey - those look like great targets. I've got a gun that can play that game now, Gordy - Looking forward to a match - for coffee! Lemme now when they're set up, or when you want to go somewhere else to set up a course of fire. I've got room for them in my truck! heh, heh - just for transport, you understand.

Unbelievable. Less than a week with his first airgun, and he's sandbagging already. I ain't in your league. I want a 5 yard handicap! :butthead:
