Cla-a-a-a-ang! It’s hard to beat the instant, positive feedback of shooting at a steel target. Unfortunately, they’re generally cumbersome and slow to assemble on the range. Not a big deal for targets that live on the range, but most of us have to set up our targets at the start of a range day and break ’em back down to take them home at the end. Stake Out Targets and Hammer Targets are seeking to make that process faster, easier, and tool-free.
First up is Stake Out Targets with their simple silhouette design. This slab of AR500 steel has a grab handle on each side and two sharp feet on the bottom. Just slam it into the ground, angled slightly forward to deflect bullet spray downward, and get shooting.
It’s sweet and simple. I like it.
Hammer Targets gets more complex with a 10-inch swiveling gong on a target hanger system.
Built into the base is a sliding steel hammer. Simply lift it up and slam it down to hammer the target into the ground.
Two good looking solutions for getting steel set up on the range quickly and easily.
