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"
These targets are awesome. Well made and should last a lifetime. We received or order in less than a week. My 12 year old Grandson and I set the KYL target and the army men out and had great fun shooting them. Nice job Brad.
Super Fun, High Quality KYL Targets! Delivered promptly. I bought the recommended pipe and conduit at my local ACE Hardware. Took 5 minutes to cut the pipe with a hacksaw and 10 minutes to assemble the targets with a Phillips Screwdriver. At 25 yards it was a blast offhand! At 50 yards it was very challenging in the prone position. Love it. Should last for generations if taken care of. I plan to paint it all before next shooting session. I highly recommend this KYL Rimfire Target!
This is the best KYL I’ve used or seen. Brilliant design and cut perfectly. All my Atlas targets are great!!
I researched several sets of KYL's and have examined some at matches I've attended. While some are lower priced, they are 1/4" thick and I noticed some bending after a couple of seasons use. I like the interference fit of the legs. When I pick the target up to move it I don't have to chase the legs.
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.
