I have been searching for the right steel silhouette target for a few months and I still haven’t made a decision. Instead of hanging new paper every three to four courses of fire, I am looking for a standard size target that can handle rimfire, pistol and rifle rounds – all within 100 yards or less. But targets and their options are as varied as the guns that shoot them.You may find it easier to buy gifts for fellow shooters if you stick to what you might buy yourself. As such, I’ve included products that I have found in the course of my research. Prices vary from $50 to well into the hundreds depending on options. Did I miss your favorite target manufacturer? Tell me in the comments section below.
The Rubber Dummie provides a unique shooting experience to all shooters. Made in the U.S.A. from 100% recycled materials the Dummie withstands 1000’s of rounds of all calibers of ammunition, from .17 HMR to 50 BMG. It allows the round to travel through, resealing itself as the round passes through minimizing degradation and provides the shooter with the ability to safely engage the target at point-blank range. Whether training a high compression scenario or long distance engagement the Dummie provides instant visual feedback to the shooter with a target surface that is easily and quickly reset. Due to the 3 dimensional nature of the target, it enhances quartering and dynamic shooting scenarios while accurately representing shot placement to critical regions when using the included “Kill Shot” packs. The Dummie also provides a durable and anatomically accurate figure for live knife, CQB and gun/knife transition training.

Whether you’re a cowboy action shooter or you just have a thing for animal shapes, this target is guaranteed to make any day at the range more fun.
The shooting surfaces of the Rimfire Buffalo are all made of 1/4″ AR500 armor steel and are designed to take years of heavy use with .22 rimfire ammunition*. The rear swinging plate is easily installed without tools, and its no weld design means a longer product life and a much smaller chance of breaking. The provided PT Practice Stand also makes the Rimfire Buffalo easily portable with a collapsible base and convenient carrying handle.
