Target comes with everything you need to get on the range
Go-To target for self-defense style shooting
AR500 riser reduces maintenance and increases the longevity of the target assembly
AR500 parts do not come painted but the base is powdercoated black
Note: This target went through a significant revision on 11/1/2022. The target face is the same, the angle is the same, and how the target connects to the stand is the same so it still rings like a bell when hit. The entire stand has been upgraded to AR500 to reduce maintenance and increase longevity.
This is one of my favorite targets and I've always got several on my range. The angle allows for close rifle engagement and works just as well for pistol or shotgun. Many other target manufacturers mount their version to the bottom of the plate and it kills the ring. This one mounts near the center of gravity and rings with the sweet sound of freedom!
Being limited to 50 yards, there aren't many safe options for shooting steel with rifles. This is, without question, the best design on the market. It's exceptionally well built and the audible feedback is unrivaled. I'm very pleased!
So much fun, so worth the price of lead to fling
I really enjoyed my first outing with hostage taker. My family loved it too.
At first I tried to practice marksmanship. I got the part down.
Later it was just fun to empty the clip to the glorious sound of metal on metal.
I bet I can devote more energy to playing with it.
Steel Target with a Twist
Received my steel targets very promptly after my order. Took this to the range as soon as I could and really enjoyed the hostage taker attachment. Base and support stand are well-made and should stand up to lots of abuse. Shot 9 mm and 45 at about 10 yards and no signs of pitting. Would recommend this to anyone who’s looking for steel targets.
I have shot the 1/2' target with pistols at 10 yards and rifles (10.5 inch 5.56 and 16 inch 7.62x39) at 25 yards without any damage at all. Great sound and lots of fun. Added the hostage taker for extra challenge and highly recommend it. Brad's customer service is outstanding. You have been warned - you will need to budget for more, because one is fun but you will quickly want more of them. Using steel for CQB drills with a rifle is awesome.
