Portable Remote Target Changer From TARGETVISION

Assembled_Target_Changer_3e87d62e-33cd-4e54-b4ae-1048a477d599_1024x1024

TargetVision has a new target system available. It is a remotely operated target changer that can operate out to about 600 feet. It is constructed primarily of aluminum with AR500 armor plating. The downside is that it comes in at $1595 and it weighs in at a hefty 97 pounds.

It seems like the concept pairs well with use of a spotting scope (and they do sell a wireless spotting scope). I can see the utility for ranges or specialized applications (like rapidly switching between shoot/no shoot targets for distance competitions).

When I shoot at long ranges, I’m normally not shooting enough to warrant multiple target changes–it is either for zeroing a rifle or punching a few rounds to keep the skills from completely going to crap. Personally I’m not sure if I could justify the cost for the infrequent distance shooting I do.

What do you readers think? What applications can you come up where this would be a benefit?

  • I’m only guessing here, but judging from the target ‘image’, I’d say 600 feet would be the maximum distance. That target center area looks to be six inches in diameter (if those are 1″ squares), so 600 yards away it would probably look about 1/4 of your front sight width…

  • I think it’s way to expensive. I love the idea of this product but I wouldn’t believe that all of that money would be worth spending on it. Plus I’m sure that eventually, it’ll wear down and at some point become useless. One thing that would help is lightening its weight. I certainly wouldn’t be able to move it around by myself, so I would need someone with me at all times to help me move it? Wouldn’t like that. Maybe I want to shoot solo. LOL.
