The Top Gun Targets Reviewed

gun target reviewsAnyone who has been to a shooting range has seen at least one gun target.

Usually black on neon or white backgrounds, gun targets let people test out their accuracy on stationary objects. The odd background coloration on some gun targets is used to differentiate the targets from their surroundings.

Gun targets come in many different designs and styles. From standing targets to sticker targets meant to be placed around a shooting range, gun targets are useful for calibrating more sensitive weapons, as well as for practicing ranged accuracy.

They can be self-defense based, such as silhouette gun targets, or hunting-based targets meant to look like different animals. Higher-quality standing targets, such as spinning metal targets, are a good way to practice hitting moving targets. Like any activity, practice makes perfect, and gun targets are a great way to get firearm practice in a controlled environment.

Types Of Gun Targets

Circular gun targets are a hunter’s staple. Featuring a bullseye target in the center of a square or rectangular poster, these targets are perfect for general accuracy tests and are great at both close and far distances. Circle or bullseye targets can also come in scattershot targets, which contain many bullseyes spread on one target. These are useful for tracking birdshot spread or for adding variety to your target practice. These targets are inexpensive and you can buy them at most outdoors shops.

Silhouette gun targets are used for self-defense training, whether in a civilian self-defense setting or for military training. These targets feature a human silhouette, either holding a weapon or unarmed and have many red “bullseyes” to indicate a lethal shot. There are also silhouette targets for hunters. These include an outline of a deer or other animal and highlights the target shot areas on each kind of animal. Both kinds of gun targets are useful for accuracy and are a good way to practice hitting smaller target areas from a distance.

On top of the different target designs, there are also different target materials. Hanging targets are printed on a large piece of thick paper and are only usable for one or two practice sessions. Sticker targets allow you to replace targets that are used more frequently. They are useful for targeting obscure areas for accuracy training. Standing targets, such as the metal spinning target range, are multi-use. These are good for shooting ranges and dedicated target areas, as they don’t need to replacement as often. The main perk of standing targets is that you can use them multiple times.

With a wide range of different targets available, do your research to find out what gun target will take your firearm skills to the next level.
