    I found this while perusing YouTube. It's a 5-minute video showing how clay targets are made. It's interesting . . . I assumed they were actually made of "clay".

    Saw something similar to this in a YouTube video.The saw horses have 5' legs and fold up. The hanger board is 6'6" long with 6" off each end dedicated to the saw horse clamp. There is room on this hanger for 4-5 targets to have ~ 6" between them. I'll be hanging 2 of the 8" gongs (as seen in...

    Thanks to PhillipD, we now have several new steel targets at Magnolia. There are two new plate racks on Range 1A and two new static rectangular gongs on both the 200 and 300 (Ranges 4 & 5). The targets look really well designed and constructed and should provide many years of use for our...

    Hopefully these kind of moving autonomous robot targets will show up on civilian ranges in the near future, but for now they're just in the T&E stage for the military. Pratt & Miller Defense's Infantry Moving Target System - The Firearm Blog

    Last weekend, four of the local young hunters stopped by my shop. I posted about it on the Gunsmithing forum. Something funny I just thought about happened. I have two lengths of chain installed on one of the targets ready to hang on two posts. When they walked in I said, I got to show ya,ll...

    There in an interesting article on Electronic Targets in this edition of Shooting Sports. Shooting Sports USA - June 2017 It is amazing what sort of technology is entering the shooting sports --- most of it has left me behind and I still enjoy the old ways and black powder :). Pit duty was...

    Is used up computers. My old (14 years) terrorist Vista desktop is dying, so ordered a new one today. After I strip out the memory and hard drive, it will be introduced to Mssr. Mossberg, Brenneke, and Ruger. But it will be hiding out in the woods. I might even post a video of the fun in a...

    So I got a quote on 3/8" AR500 4 - 12"x12" & 10"x10" plus 2 at 5"x5" for $580 or 1/2" for $635. Does that sound about right? We will be shooting .308, 6.5SAUM, .300WSM, and maybe .300WM. Hang plates from chain most likely at 300, 400, 500, and possibly 700yards. Will 3/8" AR500 handle that or...

    Finally made it to the range with PhillipD's silhouette target. Pushed the boundaries of our range to make it out to 200, I wanted to test this Rock River standard grade full length rifle, open sights. First 5 were low so I upped the sights; with no set POA (point of aim) it did really well for...
