ur slotted gong system is primarily used as static steel plates for steel challenge, 3 gun, and training. The way our system works, the plates will always hang with a 15-degree negative angle to the ground to help control the direction of the majority of the bullet fragments and minimizes the energy of any fragments that come off the plates in any other direction. The standard range that these and any other steel targets are shot at is 15 yards with pistol and rimfire, and 100 yards with center fire rifle. That being said, it is up to the shooter to make sure their steel is safe to be shot at, that it’s at a safe distance for whatever type of shooting drill they are wanting to do, and that the people with them or around them are aware of what they are intending to do. These plates are also used on our flash target and swinger. These plates are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes from a 6” round to 18”x24” rectangle, and full size torsos.
