Shooting Star Exploding Clay Pigeon Targets

    Firebird Reactive Targets Ltd. based out of Wiltshire, England makes a fun looking shooting accessory that you’d expect to see on one of the various firearm “reality” shows here in the US, not in the gun deprived United Kingdom. Their Shooting Star 65mm exploding targets attach to the back of standard clay pigeon targets using double-sided tape and works with all standard throwers, they’ll even work with automatic trap throwers. After a direct hit the Shooting Star target ignites white smoke as well as a pretty loud bang. They go for £19.95 ($30) for a pack of 20 in the UK, I did some digging but couldn’t find a source for them here in the US. They also make exploding rifle, airsoft and archery targets.
