MGM Releases Self-Contained Pneumatic Target

Mike Gibson, President of MGM Targets announced today that they are going to be premiering the Recon Target at the Shot Show in Las Vegas January 18, 2011. This is the only pneumatically driven, self contained auto-reset target on the market. “This is the most exciting target ever developed,” claimed Gibson. “This will appeal to all of our market segments, law enforcement, military and the sport shooting industry,” he continued.

This portable target, 81 pounds, uses a compressed air cylinder to deliver the power necessary to reset of the target after it has been hit. This MGM proprietary target system resets the target in a matter of seconds to the full upright position. Using a 12″ wide X 22″ high X 3/8″ thick target face made of AR500 grade steel this target is sure to stand up to heavy fire usage for many years. Paul LaFrance, Director of Business Development for MGM Targets stated, “The ReCon Target is unquestionably one of the most innovative targets I have seen in my 30 plus years in this business. The fact that it is totally self contained and pneumatically driven will make this a must have target for both military and law enforcement agencies. Add to that the MGM Targets name and reputation for the highest quality products this is going to be a big winner for us.”

The target operates in a wide range of temperatures and is ballistically capable of withstanding all standard small arms ammunition. An adjustable reset control allows the shooter or instructor to speed up or slow down the reset timing on each target. The cylinder, self contained in the Recon Target box, averages about 450 cycles per full cylinder. The cylinder is very easy to replace and can be changed in a matter of seconds. A separate shield protects the inner workings of the target to help protect it from fragmented munitions.

Gibson added, “We are so excited about introducing this product at Shot Show. This year we will be in booth number 20226 and would invite any and all to stop by and look at our newest product. We know we will be demonstrating this to many people during the course of the show and would like to invite any curious buyers to stop by and visit with us.”

The Shot Show runs from January 18-21 in Las Vegas, NV and will be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. For information regarding this new product offered by MGM Targets call 888-767-7371 or email inquiries to Sales@mgmtargets.com.

Caldwell Natural Series Targets Show Spot-On

Caldwell Natural Series Targets Show Spot-OnPreparation is the key to a successful hunting season. Before taking to the deer woods with a firearm this fall, take some time to find out just where your bullets are hitting with Caldwell’s innovative Natural Series Targets.

Caldwell’s cardboard-backed, life-size Natural Series Targets offer full color photographs of whitetail deer, mule deer, turkey and coyote. The unique advantage of these targets are the illustrations of both the vital organs and skeletal structures of the animals. These illustrations can be easily viewed up close, yet disappear at a distance, allowing hunters to practice accuracy and proper shot placement.

Shooting at a life like image is a training tactic hunters should use to see exactly where their shot is impacting an animal. Natural Series Targets are also great tool for teaching new or young hunters about proper shot placement. After visually showing an inexperienced hunter what an animal’s kill zone looks like, they may better understand the importance of shot placement.
