I saw last January that Sleepy717 manufactures a DAMN fine metal gong target, but I don't think he does it commerially/regularly... I don't know any full-time manufacturers of such things.

Beerjager & I have been collecting steel plate and trying to come up with ideas. I have a welder, torch set and chop saw. Maybe the three of need to hook up and start cutting and welding up some stuff. Let me know.

I saw some target stands that Fritz made out of re-bar... looked pretty simple. They use 1 gallon jugs as the target. They were designed as shotgun targets, but could probably be adapted.

I have the steel plates in storage and the heavy duty bases made up. Just need to get off my ass and finalize them and get em' welded up.
Me and Sleepy717 have been planning to make a half dozen pistol "knock" down type poppers to train on.

Adam give Sleepy or me a call-

Cool! Does DelTone allow those?

Paul the mgr. at Del-Tone Luth Gun Club sent out a renewal notice with respect to getting metal reactive targets, but I do not believe they are installed.
