I like steel targets because they last for many years and some react when shot, but mostly because I don't have to keep replacing paper targets. Years ago I found out how handy steel plate is when used for a backyard bullet stop. I made a couple bullet traps for paper targets and a couple swinging targets. For a lot of years this steel has stopped many thousand of bullets. Recently I added a steel plate (Gray) that was on the 50 yard line at the rifle range. With chains I hung a small 1/4 inch steel plate in front of the large plate. The little target has turned out to be a very active target, especially when shot rapid fire with a 22. Two favorite steel targets are on the rifle range. One is a 2 foot square plate. I paint it black and outline a 18 inch white silhouette. This is normally used as a 52 yard small handgun target. On the left of the black target is a white 1 foot square steel plate welded to a pole. This is also a good target since it is about COM size and it gives a satisfying ring when shot with a 22, as this young lady is doing here. The final steel target is one I bought at a gun show. Hitting the bottom four targets causes them to flip up out of play. Then hitting the top target resets the bottom four. A nice pistol challenge, especially with a timer. So, what steel targets are you shooting? I could use some more ideas.
