I had sworn off Amazon since, well you know why, and just for the heck of this post I went back to see. I wound up getting 2, there looks to be only 10 remaining.   :o

It said 6 remaining after I bought mine a few hours ago.

The last and final five that I ordered show they're out for delivery.  That will bring my total to 10.

I must say I really like these targets and the fact that I can shoot them with my .22lr makes them all the more useful.

Mine too, that’ll make 7 sets for me.  ;D

Yesterday, after shooting I left my 2 sets inside my 30 meter target boxes. I need to close the holes in the back with new steel and fill the holes with duct-seal. After I level the other target boxes, I’ll do the same and leave them in their respective target boxes.  8)

Whoa, what a plinking heaven setup, Cap! Not to mention the distance boxes in the - distance...

Thanks Charlie!  8)

I have 5 of these targets and they will last me until the end or until someone steals them or shoots them with a cannon.

     I have them at 50 and 75 yards. These are a great bargain and provide a very satisfying smack when hit!  Even if you just stole the spinners off it to repurpose, these are well worth it. A reactive target is big fun and a welcome break from paper targets.

 Yup you can only shoot paper so much, then you have to go down range and change it out.  ;D

I agree. I shoot spinners, aluminum cans, or water bottles a lot more often than paper.

I can't be certain, its only been 5 days since I ordered my pair of these dudes, but I get the feeling they are about to begin to prepare to contemplate to attempt to start to commence to intend to originate some paperwork relating to said order. How very exciting.  :o

Mini Bud Light cans placed upside down on  3" drywall screws in a 4x4. Not only do you have to knock them down, you also have to rip them off the screws. This requires shot placement to the sweet spots. Center shots just blow holes in the cans. Rim shots are the key...  ;)

Just got mine yesterday. These things are thick and heavy! My .177 won’t flip them at 10 yards.... until I took a grinder to the back of the paddle and drilled some holes in the neck.
 Now I can flip all 4 at 40 yards with a .177 and my .22 doesn’t damage it at all. Took some time too, to grind each paddle took close to 30min of just grinding. About 5 minutes of drilling.
So yes a long project, but well worth it in the end!

I really don't care if mine flip or not. As long as they swing I know I have a hit.

I dropped 10 of my 46gr .25 pellets on the paddles at 50 yards and they sure did flip the paddles.... and then some! They knocked the bar too far upon impact and got released from the hold. The release paddle did 4 good spins then one last lazy one.

I think the .25 with 46gr slugs is a little hot...  ::)

My .25 Flashpup does the same thing with 25.4 grain pellets out to 30 yards. Haven't tried it further than that.
