    8" GONGS

    Wanting to set up a set of steel plates up at the Cabin. Stumbled upon these guys on ebay. Ordered 6 of the 8" gongs. Have an idea how I'm going to set these up. Pics to come.

    Just wanted to pass on the vendor. Quality of these AR500 plates is perfect. They have other sizes available too.

    a little bit of chain, screw hooks, some 1/4" nuts and bolts, a few washers to hold it all together, and hang the chain on the back of the targets to make them tilt so that splash goes down.
    A few 2x4s and a couple of sawhorse brackets from harbor freight or ace hardware. or depending on where you're at... just some paracord and a treebranch?

    You can find seconds on eBay for quite a bit less.

    I have a 6 inch and an 8 inch AR500 plates 1/2 inch thick. Have not had any problems with 45/70,308 and other rifles denting or bending the plates.....but don't shoot them with a 556 or 223, that round will put small dents in the plates, even at 200 yds. If the dents got too bad I will just turn the plates around.

    Got talked into using rubber straps instead of chain. About the same money but supposed to hold up to being shot a few times.
    Waiting for them to come in the mail. https://shootingtargets7.com/ These guys are a MI. company. ( Hudsonville ) And VETS.

    Pretty much ready to take to the cabin next week.

    The frame is cyclone fence hardware. Those right angle gate adaptors make it so I can take it apart when I leave there. The straps work real well. Ended up using a type of carbineer clip on the bottom attachment for quick release. Will show them after I get it all set up next week.

    Also have a magnetic stencil to use to paint a bullseye design on the gongs. Should be pretty cool.

    Mine arrived today

    I'm going to try aircraft cable and see how that works. I'm sure that if I hit it that it will get cut in two, but the odds of hitting it are slim (which, in reality, means what - 1st shot out of the gun?!)

    Whatever I hang my gongs with gets hit by someone.
    Make your hangers quick connect & easily replaceable.

    When they come for your guns, give them the ammunition first

    grade 8 bolts and firehose.


    I would not suggest getting steel targets that have those small "ears" for mounting. That will be your failure point.
