Code still works.  I just ordered 2 for a total of $10.10 to my door.  I'll add these to my other swingers.   THANKS!!

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

     Mine are flipping just fine at 75 yards with 18.13’s @ 890fps. Sometimes the last outside paddle will knock the opposite outside paddle back down, so I aim a little higher and the last one will stay up. Again, thanks for posting about these, big bargain when bargains seem rare.

 The amazing thing about this deal is, every first shot on these are dead center, so not to ruin the group I set up another one with fresh paint or stickers and leave the other set as is for proof, now if I can remember what I shot them with  :-[ ??? ::) :-\

I think you should buy more and keep shooting them until you hit one off center.   ;D ;D
Of course there is the back side too.


Perhaps this could be a new competition.

I need to come up with a new way to mount them... the .25 cal guns know them out of the hurry up electrical staple mount I did. Next I'll drill holes in the wood for the legs. Just another addition to the 'to do' list...  :o

A 3/8 inch paddle bit works great and gives a little wiggle room.

I'll most likely do something like that... just a bit more forward lean to them.

A little lean will help if you want them to flip. I decided before I mounted them that swinging would be good enough for me.

Got mine today.  The targets are 1 3/4 inches in diameter.  Smaller than I thought they'd be but for about $5 these are great.  Thanks for posting this deal.

I drilled holes on an an angle in a 6' 4x4 today. I drilled them for the targets to lean forward and function as intended. I also drilled the holes so the legs would fit in snug about 2" deep. Works great.

My neighbor reports these are not up to .223.  Punches holes right through it.

I have one rated for PB handguns. Hit it with a 405 grain subsonic and put a big dent in it. Turned it around and hit it with another one from the other side and straightened it back out. A coat of paint and you couldn't tell anything happened. Now your neighbor has a whole new challenge... Shoot .177 pellets through the hole without hitting the paddle.
