8" gongs

Had an OP to shoot some steel plates for the first time recently. Was such a blast, I decided to get some for my Cabin Up North. Ordered 6 8" AR500 steel plates. Have a good idea how I'm going to set them up. Will post some pics when I get it done.

Found these on ebay. Great value.

Steel plates + 22lr suppressed = fun.

www.hangfasttargets.com also has A500 target systems and is a forum sponsor.

Pretty much ready to take to the cabin next week.

The frame is cyclone fencing hardware. Those right angle gate adapters make it so I can take it apart when I leave there.. The rubber straps work real well. Ended up using a type of carabiner clip for the bottom attachment for quick release. Will show them after I get it all set up next week.

Also have a magnetic stencil to use to paint a bulls eye design on the gongs. Should be pretty cool.

Got threm all painted up & installed. Turned out pretty cool. Shot a couple hundred rounds at them. Wanted to do more but it was cold & rained most every day.

Leatherneck- good stuff, I love shooting steel!

One tip- turn the quick links around so that lead splatter doesn't clog up the threads as bad. If you ever need to change the hanging straps you'll know why I suggested it. ...lol

I've gone to Hangfast targets and hangers now... so much better and cheaper than my first several targets/hangers.
