I decided to go with the 1/2 inch AR550 plate and I couldn't be happier. Extremely durable, and instant audible feedback. Whether you just plink around or run drills to increase your ability as a shooter, you should pick up one of these target systems. Well worth it. I look forward to stocking my home range with as many of these targets as I can.
2/3 Magnum A-DAP 1/2" AR550
Right away from how the box was sealed and labeled you know you’re about to open a product that has been made to withstand a serious beating. The stand is a great 2in1 combo for the steel target and paper on the lighter days. These guys have made a solid product and I’m already planning my next purchase.
I have various targets from steel target makers and so far TA targets are my favorite. Their AR 550 targets can take a lot of abuse and from closer ranges. They always take time to answer questions when you call them too.
TaTargets are by far the highest quality steel I’ve owned by any company. This particular target is my favorite. It’s a small and demands respect. A lot of the full size silhouette targets are easy to hit, you hear the *DING* and you get that instant gratification of a hit, but that big target allows you to get sloppy... the 2/3rd mini A-DAP demands accuracy if you want to hear that beautiful sound.
I'm lucky enough to have a range on my property and I have at least a dozen steel targets from several companies and they're all great to be honest. But it's easy to see as soon as you open the box the amount of thought and care that went into building these targets. It's extremely well made, robust, attractive and its functional. I love the round base for how easy it is to maneuver to new positions without taking it down and it's ability to hold cardboard silhouettes as well. Also love the hinged design and forward lean of the target plate, ensuring that the splatter goes exactly where it's supposed to. And that sound! The ring was ok when I got it but the more I shoot it, the better it gets. If you're thinking about it, just do it. Especially with the 1/2", this will be a lifetime target for 99% of ppl out there. Also have their falling tree, look for my review there. Thanks you guys and keep up the great work!
