Steel reactive targets

A buddy and I made these targets to train with. Have not really seen anyone who has made something that is so versatile. Comments would be appreciated. Do you guys have stuff like this in Canada.

It looks good.

Here's the standard equipment that the sport has been using for the past two decades, now moved in to airsoft.

As an fyi, IPSC has stopped using the metric target, and there is now an official Airsoft-specific (or "Action Air") classic target - dimensions available through Global Village.

Thank you for the complement on the targets

You are right that countries that don't have there own action pistol organizations default to the IPSC authorized targets. That mainly has been the ameoba "Classic" targets. In the approximately 30 shooting competitions "real steel" under USPSA I do a year, maybe 10% of the targets are the Classic. So internationally it may be losing ground, but it is very strong here. The surprising thing is that "Airsofters" love the Metric because it is torso shaped. Go figure, people love the way it looks, especially from a rifle. Imagine doing and airsoft sniper course, ask the competitors, you want to shoot the round plate or the torso one, guess which one the like.

CED makes good products, I use the timer, I see the HK guys using this stuff alot. I don't see to much CED stuff in US hands because it is expensive.

Thanks again

PS I did not know CED has been making airsoft stop plates for that long. In live fire competitions I have never seen an LED lit target.

We shoot colt steel in the US, do you in IPSC?

We started a club up here last year, led by an IPSC black badge holder. Since then, IPSC has officially taken airsoft under its wing, so a lot of big changes have been happening.

I'm currently working towards a black badge as well, but it's difficult in Canada - the road is long, but possible.

I saw these on Youtube!
I can't see the myspace video, but you guys are probably the ones talking with a huge US flag behind you right?

Steel eh?

Those will be a lot better than the crappy Madbull ones. After you pepper them with a bunch of rounds they start looking like a teenager with an extreme acne problem.

The thing is, steel is much heavier, and slower to fall down.

This is a better link to the promo video

YouTube - airsoft targets

We have developed a stop switch which will fit on any BAM target.

http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/inde...mageID=5644713

The target has an adjustment bolt to to work with various FPS Airsoft. Lets just put it this way, I have shot a pellet at this (900 FPS) and it did not damage the target face. My videos clearly show me engaging these target hundreds of times at varying distances with no problems.

Remember I made them, If they did not work, I would change them. I use these almost daily fro training.

we have wholesale pricing, PM me

This is a video of how it applies to real fire shooting.

reset bars

I saw that a retailer commented so this is for you. We designed reset bars for the triple plate rack and installed them in a local airsoft store. Talk about a step up for the buying experience.
