You engage a KYL target by starting with the largest target and shooting each subsequently smaller target gaining points for each target struck. You can stop at any target to keep the points you've earned. The catch is that if you miss, you lose all your points. To get as many points as possible you need to... wait for it... know your limits.
Additional Note: Every other KYL design I've seen uses 1/4" material and in my pursuit to design the perfect KYL target I've found that it's impossible to make one with 1/4" thick material that won't bend with very little use. Previously, I solved this problem by using a design that I had to tig weld the round target onto the hanger, and although it worked great for quite some time, after heavy use the welds start to fail. This design using 3/8" AR500 is the ultimate in functionality and more importantly reliability, so you can enjoy this target for many years to come!
From a customer that just emailed me... "I also just received a Kyl set from [redacted]. After just a few shots the 1/2" and 1/4" targets were already bending! Very disappointing. That's why I ordered your set of 3/8" thick swingers. The others were 1/4" thick"
This is very nice target. Only small thing I would change is make the hole in the swingers a few thousands bigger. After painting they where a little tight but still works great.
Easy to assemble, excellent quality, and delivered from 1,500 miles away in 3 days.
I really like the target job well done thank you
I had been searching for a KYL target for some time. Fortunately I came across the Atlas Target website. After reading that they use 3/8" AR500 and seeing one of the targets in the video, I knew I needed to look no further. The targets were shipped the same day, and I had them three days later. This is a much superior design than any other out there. The system is great, the targets rotate freely and the system does not bounce up and down or sway left to right when impacted. You will not be disappointed with these, I highly recommend these targets.
The design of these kyl targets are perfect and built to last! 3/8" thick and no welds to worry about failing over time of use.
