If I saw a crazy girl coming at me with a knife I'd try to marry her long before I'd try to shoot her.

Allow me to introduce you to my ex-wife sometime, if crazy chicks with blades hold an attraction. ;)

Well you know I believe in keeping within your own, and for me that's psychologically challenged americans. :p Doesn't have to be blades though I accept all forms of crazy.

For some reason I found the bunny target very disturbing.

Im curious to know when these will become available as well. Im going to be ordering a few hundred paper targets in the very near future and im tryin to hold out for these. The VTAC targets also look very nice and they are already available.

What is the rabbit using as a weapon? I remember shooting him in a class, but forgot to look more closely :D Looked like a deadly can of pringles or maybe some salami.

It's a dirty bomb or something. I believe all of the targets are magpul employees by the way.

Hahaha I love that!!! If that is true they need Chris and Travis targets. Delta Force movie poster with Chris Costa's face on Chuck Norris' body, and Travis Haley........ (not sure)

I don't know man, as someone who has gone to kinkos and printed out poster size pictures of myself and a few friends for fun target practice. I can honestly say every time it just grinds its way down to shooting each other's cardboard counterpart in the junk, and making jokes about it. If Travis and Chris manage to teach a class without falling to that temptation, well then I need to know that secret.

PERFECT!!! They could move the green circle to "the junk region."

that was travis, they screwed with the face and darkened it up, but had to stop circulating the target due to political shit.

On AR15.com Travis Haley said they are going through extensive T&E.

The girl is HOT I think, her mouth slightly open and her pouty lips. In our carbine class, over Easter weekend, we shot the bunny all the first day. Forgot to get pics.

I'd say the main issue is that when you get 50 or so yards away the green circle in the middle, and even the whole person, doesn't have enough contrast to stand out, it is kind of like shooting at a blob. It seemed like the targets where more Costa's project than Travis', but that might just have been who I heard talking about them.

Could do a hippy one with a peace symbol on his t-shirt for a nice 8 inch circle.

If I could get hippie (paper!) targets, I'd depart from my normal policy of refusing to pay for targetry beyond paper plates and 3x5 cards.

In a heartbeat.

Then you'll enjoy this, especially skip to 50 seconds in.

Costa mentioned gnat he was not all the happy with the green for that reason and he mentioned something about blue as well. No clue if they are actually acting on it.

looks like they are available now through the website. unfortunately no bunny targets but i guess magpul corp changed their minds about the homeboy target, i thought travis said they had to pull those targets even though thats actually him.

It's a pack of 100 for $74.95. At $0.75 a piece, how is that expensive paper?

Cwood
07-10-10, 12:33
It is a little on the pricey side compared to Vtac's doubled sided targets for $40 a 100.

Like everything, it all depends on what you are looking for.

Anyone have any comments/thoughts on such a clearly defined target area? or the size thereof?

I think I like them.

They look to be somewhat less IPDA/Precision/Scoring oriented and more toward just good COM effective hits.

More than once I have had to sort of force context on regular targets when doing things like movement or barriers. I have to actively disregard my hangups on groups or score when those weren't the point. These might help that.

Granted I do not have the trigger time many do so I might be wrong.

I am a little bummed that have the 'cool' targets but not the 15 zone small targets for call-out drills.

Also a a little unsure why they went to a cyan zone from the hivis green maybe conflicts with tritiums?

They're definitely cool targets, but I personally cannot justify that price for the amount of targets my department & I use for training when I can get similar targets for half the price or less.

And that's cool if that is the case.

However with the features and info included with these targets plus the adhesive top this is more than just simple paper.

Either way, I wish you luck with your purchases and hope that whatever you buy meets your needs.

What do you mean by "adhesive top"? Do these work like post-its?

Each target has a tear-off glue top to keep organized at the range on windy days.

One of the benefits of the photo realistic targets is the obscured scoring/target area. Superimposing a high visibility zone nullifies the benefits of the PR a bit.

More prominent scoring zones tend to be better earlier in a training cycle to build reference memory. Later, you take that zone away to promote less range-think and more reality.
