Where to buy Air Rifle Silhouettes

Fairfax Rod and Gun Club is starting air rifle silhouette when we open our season in March. Our Match Director has asked me to help source targets for our club. My first thought was Greg Chandler, but he only sells small bore targets.

Where would you all recommend that our club source our targets? Also, we would prefer that they be able to stand up to the 1000 fps gamo guns that are liable to show up in the hands of beginners.

Thanks!

Also I believe Wayne Harlow makes resetables.

Pyramid Arms sells targets

For some reason it looks like the best price might be on the 8 pack - Backyard Slynger package $40.00 for an 8 pack of 4.

These are what I would get. The 1/4" thickness will make them heavier so they don't fly all over the place and get lost when they're hit.

Question Dustin or anyone else with experience: do the 1/4 in thick targets result in more animals bein hit but not going over, especially for the 10 meter guns?

I guess it's possible with the Rams but very unlikely.

I agree with Dustin. Quality targets is the way to go. I highly doubt you will ring them.
