Responsible Shooters will shoot only at Responsible Targets. There are all different types of safe to use Man Made Targets, seems enough types to keep any Responsible Shooter happy and satisfied. From paper to thick reacting steel, there is something for everyone. And some shooters, will want to use and or try them all. Please do not shoot at animals, or just shoot into the air or woods, AND PLEASE SO NOT shoot at glass items (what a forever mess that someone or something could be hurt if stepped on or if an animal ate fragments).
Please make sure you are using a Target, and only use Targets, that are approved for the caliber of gun/bullet you are using with that Target.

AR 500 Reactive Flipper Targets
From: TARGETS FROM US
Deron was searching the Internet looking for thickly made, metal, AR500 GONG Targets for hanging and found this Company listed in a Search Engine. He said to me "Here are some targets you will be interested in." and sent me the link www.TargetsFromUs.com. When I went to the website I was tickled and stayed a while looking around. YOU BET I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SOMETHING THAT LOOKS AS FUN AS THESE interactive/reactive Flipper Targets LOOK! Needless to say, I had to have them. I also want to mention, that "Targets From Us" carries a long list of these and other types of Metal Targets, including but not limited to Dueling Trees, Spinners, Zombies, Knock Down and Stationary, and of course the GONGS for hanging that Deron was originally searching for.
One very disappointing thing: When these arrived we were under a severe Fire Danger Warning. We were not allowed to target practice for fear of starting fires from sparks. However, after a while, the grass was eaten to almost gone in our Range Area, so we took these out to shoot. WHAT FUN!
About the Product
These AR 500 Reactive Flipper Targets are well made, very well welded, and look like they will last a looooong time in your shooting range even with much use. What caught our attention to this product is the many ways these Targets can be safety used. Not only could a person just take one out and shoot it along in a walking motion, but my first thought when I saw them was to have two or more, set up a safe environment with responsible shooters, have races shooting the Flipper Targets from a Shooting Line. Each Shooter would stand behind, and not leave, a Shooter's Line. The Targets would be set up on a marked Starting Line and racing to the marked Finish Line. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND SHOOTERS WALKING WITH THEIR TARGETS IN A RACE SITUATION. But done correctly, this would not only be safe, but FUN as well! Adding the the Flipper Targets versatility if you wanted to change it up a bit, a shooter could hang these targets and use them as swinging targets also.
Our Three AR500 3" Round 1/4" Thick Flipper Targets arrived quickly in the mail. My first thought was how KOOOOL they are (the idea and how they are made), then looking closer, how well they are made. The shapes are very well cut, there are no sharp edges, and the welds are very securely fully welded (not spot welded). I have to say for the price, this is a GREAT deal.
As I said: One very disappointing thing: When these arrived we were under a severe Fire Danger Warning. We were not allowed to target practice for fear of starting fires from sparks. However, after a while, the grass was eaten to almost gone in our Range Area, so we took these out to shoot. WHAT FUN!
We had friends out and were out shooting different caliber guns. We found that even a 22 would move these targets. However, of course, a 40 cal. could move it further and fast. And the 40 cal. did no damage to the round top targets. We had a really good time shooting these.
After 30 Days Use
