Polymer targets aren’t a new thing, but there are new innovations and products coming along in this technology. Newbold Polymer Targets has come up with an innovative self healing polymer target that performs very well for pistol and low velocity rounds. It’s completely constructed of this polymer, so even the non-target area of the mount are bullet resistant. Also new are SSP Eyewear shooting glasses that are made similar to reading glasses, for those older eyes. They are available with a variety of safety lenses in various corrections and color options.
- Shooting steel plate, according to blogger, Tom Mchale, is fun, because they fall down when you hit them, so you never wonder if you missed.
- However, as Mchale, also of Gun Culture, notes, ‘lugging them around causes hernias,’ because they are really heavy.
- Newbold KD-Pivot targets are much lighter than the usual steel target plates and they’re designed to let bullets pass through without damage.
