    SAFTAA boes not do bbbbbeeeeeee.

    the only specs that we need is for the target to fall at least 75deg flat and to be able to be used when on the side of a tree.

    Our plan is to run them at every shoot possible some with 13mm and some at 50m to test the complete range.

    the trials issues were actualy the force that the shooters werwe useing to pull up the targets was bending the bolt that was holding the paddel.

    Sorry mate, you've got the wrong bloke. I don't make targets, I just try & knock 'em over!
    Good luck getting the stuff you want though.

    Default Why not Gamo????

    Why not contact Gamo direct and ask for sponsorship by way of them making "special" South African game faceplate(s) to fit on their targets. They can then make their money off it afterwards by adding it to their standard rat and squirrrrrl, and U.S. Silouhette faceplates. Am sure there is a market for replacement gamo faceplates around the globe.......lol....I know I could use about 25.

    Enough is known about how to tweak the GAMO target mechanism to ensure they work faultlessly now at 12 ft/lbs.

    One would think any target manufacturer would jump at the chance to have their product exclusively used at a Worlds......

    Just my thoughts.
