Steel target source

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Curious if any of you have a favorite source for steel targets?

 My range requires the targets be at least eye level to avoid grounding and skipping rounds off ground.

I would say MGM targets as in Mike  Gibson.  I know they have a couple of tall targets but if you call & talk to them,  they may be able to accomodate your strange needs.  The eye level thing may cause trouble..  Rocky Mountain targets might also be worth checking into.

Agree with strange range requirements...  makes little sense. During the competitions it’s fine to shoot lower targets ... but not for practice.  Odd

I've used steel from both shootingtargets7.com and shootsteel.com. both have held up well. Just but the proper AR type steel for the intended application

I just picked up some steel from Shoot Steel a couple of months ago, and I have been very happy with it.  Great folks to deal with during the order process and delivered in about a week.

Personal fav is Red Stitch Tactial.  Veteran owned/operated.   He supports the sport.

My range has a similar requirement that targets have to be placed so shots would hit mid berm   But we all know in competition they are ground level. 

 

So so I mostly hang gongs from A frame stands.

You can try minimalist targets on Facebook.  Or mintargets@gmail.com. 

Ive used his steel in the past and our range just bought a couple of his double stars.

Perfect thank you to all.  Just put together a caddie out of an old jogger stroller.  Tried to upload a photo it was too large

Here's another vote for MGM and Mike Gibson. Great product and great people.

If you are in a city with a steel supply place that does cutting, find out if they will make you the plates you want from the type of steel you want. You can potentially save a bunch going that route.

Range around here had a 36" rule we got moved down to 20" which lets you put steel at about the same height as the calibration zone on poppers.   

Matches are expected to police their steel placement a bit better than random walkup shooters I guess.

 

The plates that fit on a 2x4 can be made any height desired.

I've had good luck with Challenge Targets out of Ohio. They have a variety of steel targets supported by sturdy stands and 2x4 supports. The nice part about the 2x4 supports is that you can cut them to whatever length / height you want. Here's a link to their IPSC A/C zone targets.

You can't beat MGM. Not only do they support the shooting sports but they have outstanding customer support. I've purchased a number of items from them over the years and yet to have a problem. No they don't sponsor me.
