Just received my new FT targets I ordered from Nockover Targets in the UK.

Man, I am impressed. Really well made and not too expensive. I ordered these 11 targets and with shipping costs included to my door, it cost me $376. That's an average of $34 per target. MAY better than the flimsy Gamo targets, and still less than a Gamo target costs in Canada BEFORE shipping and tax.

Now I just need to find a place to shoot, and then need to get some practise in for Germany in August.

I am really happy with these targets.

Cheers

Robbie

The 3 rats in the front are self resetting (see the yellow resetting targets at the bottom of the target) - you shoot through the reducer and it falls over - to reset, you aim for the bottm yellow portion and hit that and it self-resets.

The rats at the back of the photo are normal FT targets like Gamo targets - knock them over and you need to pull the cord to pull them back up again.

The self-resetting ones are just much less effort - keep shooting them and the keep resetting. So one shot in the target zone (through the reducer), second shot at the bottom yellow section and so on...

The Nockover targets are great but shipping from the UK is painful. Seeing Robbie's purchases inspired me to order a few resettables.

If you live near the US border, you might want to check out http://steelplinkers.com/. I just order some more targets from them. Over a long lunch I can run down to my maildrop in the USA and save $60 shipping on a $200 order.

This was totally hassle-free. Paid with Paypal and it got shipped a day later with Parcelforce. Post Office delivered 9 days later and nothing to pay - so I thought it was dead easy. :) luckily.

It is nice when you don't get dinged with taxes/duty.
