Here are a couple of innovative target systems we found at SHOT Show 2015.
First up is the Right Now Range (www.rightnowrange.com) created by Neely Burks (Founder & CEO). The Ready Range is a cardboard target system that is lightweight, portable, reusable, inexpensive and recyclable.
The Right Now Range comes ready to use, find an appropriate place to shoot, unfold the Right Now Range, stake it out and you are ready to go.
High quality targets are printed on the outside or tape your own to the front panels. It also comes with a 3-tiered shelf for use with 3-D targets such as clay pigeons, tin cans, fruits, etc. The shelf unit can be stored inside the main compartment for easy transport.
Being cardboard, it is lightweight and highly portable. No fear of richocets as with steel. At $29.99 it is inexpensive. Use the Right Now Range over and over until it no longer holds together, then send it to the recycler.
I think you will get good value for your dollars with this product.
We at The Gundivas are working to obtain a Right Now Range and will do a more detailed review in the future.
The next item is manufactured by DownRange Fabrications, Inc. (www.DownRangeFab.com)
Down Range Fabricators makes target stands for paper and clay pigeons. What caught my eye was the hanger for clay pigeons. These are inexpensive spring steel hangars used to hold up standard clay pigeons.
You can use the stands manufactured by Down Range Fabricators or buy the hangars alone and create your own stand.
The hangars are inexpensive, approximately .40 - .60 each and can be purchased individually or in packs of 10, 25, 50 or 100.
See the website for details on how you can use these hangars.
If you like shooting clay pigeons, check out DownRange Fabricators. They have a unique product that will help you.
