>>KREW<< Field Targets

Post by FTguy » Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:55 pm

I wanted to share some of the field targets that Don and I came up with when we both had a little more free time to get creative...
Although I'm working full-time at the moment, I have been looking for a new shop space to start working on some new ideas... Meanwhile, here are a few field targets that where made up to keep things interesting out on the range...

Pop-cans have always been a favorite target for airgunners ... This FT has the look I was aiming for... :D
Targets are almost as addictive to collect as the guns.... :o
It will go down with a 5fpe KZ hit and stand up to 20fpe faceplate hits when set correctly... 1-1/2" Kill Zone that can be reduced as needed...

Here's an example of a Field Target in various stages of the build... Comobells Soup...
In the first picture you can see the FT that was cut using strong arm grinding tactics.. Look closely and you can see the freehand engraving that was added to facilitate easier repaints and still have it look as it did before the lead starts to fly.. If we were all perfect shots all of the time, this process would almost be meaningless.. :lol:
Second picture is of the base coats applied after priming the face plate...
Third is a picture of the target with all design lines colored..

Drill that last reducer out, right now! Nasty little thing isn't it.

These targets made by FTGuy are very strong and very reliable. The ones I have will outlive me by a long shot and I do intend to be around for quite some time.

The art work on some of them makes them very hard to shoot at. I know quite a few folks that have them on display shelves and they never have and never will be shot at.

Mine are all in use and any time I want, I can make them pretty again.

Thanks Tim.
Those tiny kill-zones are just nasty...

This is a Hunter friendly target with the large rectangular shape body that can easily be heard ringing if you happen to miss the centered kill-zone...

Similar to the field target above where it to is a Hunter friendly field target, this one can also challenge the best of shooters when you add those fun reducers...
