This is the third time I’ve seen Woot have these targets. They also have air rifles, tactical flashlights and accessories periodically. So they’re one of those rarities that isn’t raving anti-gun.

For shooters inexperienced with such targets. Please be mindful of where you are using, and proper backdrops.

These targets lie on the ground. Many shooters fail to realize that their misses can richochet off the ground and go skyward, even potentially hopping a protective berm.

In recent testing of steel targets, a similar affect was noticed if the target was too far in front of the berm. So please be mindful, as shooters we are to be aware of our target and what lies behind them. Remember to consider all angles at play. Targets of this nature need to be used in a proper environment.
