If you’re planning some trigger time you need to consider what you’ll pitch rounds toward. Here’s everything you need to know about shooting targets and then some.
What You Need To Consider When Buying A Shooting Target:
- Material best suited to your style of shooting.
- Cost they’ll run.
- Their longevity — are they one-time use or will you get years out of one.
- The type of target that will enhance your style of shooting.
If you don’t enjoy target shooting, well … there’s something just plain wrong with you. No offense, but even if you live for elk season or were born to run and gun at a practical pistol match, an afternoon plugging away at the bullseye should still get your juice flowing. Especially nowadays …
Never has there been a wider, more diverse and more useful selection of shooting targets available, no matter what gun or discipline happens to be your passion. From precision sight-in options to “dial your riflescope way up” options, to AR500 steel monsters made for the long haul, you have everything you need to satiate your itchy trigger finger and sharpen your skills. With the wealth of shooting targets out there today, the only question really is: Which one is right for you?
The answer, as always when it comes to guns and gear, is “It depends… .” If it’s purely pleasure principal, then nearly anything that turns your fancy will do. However, if you aim at something greater, such a skill improvement, well then picking your target requires some consideration.
