    Our story


    How we got our start?
    Being a Veteran, I'm a firearms enthusiast just like you. After becoming bored with paper targets nearly a decade ago I created my own from AR500 Steel. They were such a success that before long other shooters were tracking me down wanting to buy more. From this ShootingTargets7 was born.
    What makes our product unique?
    USA Laser Cut AR500 bead blasted front and rear / Yellow Zinc Plated for superior spall and weather protection / Veteran owned and operated / Made in the USA by American workers with American materials.
    Why we love what we do?
    We're gun people and we enjoy working with them. We love to help patriots keep their skills sharp. Providing the maximum value for money is satisfying and it's great when customers tell us they love our products.

    Why we're different (and why you should care)

    Mounting Holes All hanging targets use 1/2 inch round mounting holes that resist cracking from harmonic vibration during use.
    Strong Target Mounting Ears All hanging targets feature large and strong mounting ears. All corners are radiused for crack resistance from harmonic vibration during use.
    Elite Laser Cut Quality Our AR500 steel is bead blasted front and back prior to laser cutting to remove mill scale. This costs more but you get targets with crisp clean cut edges and a nicer appearance as a result.
    Yellow Zinc Plating All of our products ship with strong Yellow Zinc Plating (The Gold Standard). Your targets will arrive clean and rust free with excellent protection from the elements and bullet spall.
    High Power Laser Cutting We use only state of the art ultra high power lasers. This puts minimal heat into the targets and results in a minimal (HAZ) Heat Affected Zone so you get targets with tougher edges that are less prone to edge chipping.
    USA Mill Certified AR500 Every batch of AR500 has a report of chemical/physical tests (cert) performed by the steel mills quality lab prior to shipping. We buy in multiple truckload quantity direct from our trusted USA Steel Mill so you get very expensive steel at a very reasonable cost.
    Tough Hardness Requirements We have strict hardness requirements in place that far exceed industry standards for our AR500 and we stick to them.
    Built With Pride in USA As Veterans we take pride in everything we do and strive to provide maximum value for money in every way. The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low cost is forgotten.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as ordered and no signs of wear after a full day of shooting.
    By Anthony on July 21, 2019
    I set these up on my property to have a range for me to practice on and let the kids plink without having to worry about changing paper targets. I love the price for a set of six, each a different size. This allows for the shooter to increase their difficulty level without having to change targets - just shoot the progressively smaller ones. Five people shot at these targets for about 4 hours and, other than the paint getting knocked off, they are no worse for wear. (9mm and .357 Sig.) At this rate, they'll last for years before I have to plunk down $$$ for new ones. I'll probably get another one in silhouette.

    It is very hard to show in the photos, but if you run your hand across the impact points, the steel is still smooth with no sign (other than the paint as mentioned) that it had been struck. I will update after the next session when we'll be breaking out the .308.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, I use it for a pellet rifle
    By The Bio-Engineer on July 23, 2018
    This is excellent for my .177 and .22 pellet rifle. The marks you see are just lead from the pellet, the steel is intact. They make noice when you hit them even with a pellet, and is loud enough to be heard from 150meters (if there are any no other loud noises). If you have a pellet rifle and want to shoot at something from a distance or from close this is perfect. THE PELLETS GETS DESTROYED WHEN IT HITS, IT WILL NOT "BOUNCE" A LOT, MINES DONT BOUNCE OF THE TARGET AT ALL.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Just ordered 2 more 6" for a shooting party next Saturday
    By JG on September 19, 2015
    Great Buy! I highly recommend these targets, they are exactly as advertised, maybe even a bit understated. 100's of 9mm 100's of .22 and not even a scratch. Just hang them, apply a coat of paint, and start shooting! I like to use a thicker epoxy spray paint so it chips off with a hit for easy sighting. The fun will last as long as the ammo does, in fact I just ordered 2 more to have more options to shoot.
