The Target Man™ DIY CRITICAL SHOT – Reactive AR500 Steel Shooting Target
Named by AR15.com member Jeffco55! The Target Man Critical Shot is a 2-stage reactive target system constructed from ballistic grade AR500. Critical shot doubles as a hostage target and a center-mass shot. Perfect for the LEO, gun enthusiast, and even the recreational weekend “plinker”. Get one of the best training aids to sharpen your skills should you ever need to take that “critical shot”.
Our DIY un-welded Reactive Steel target kits are the perfect solution for those who want to save money and create a custom setup to suit their needs. However, please note that the Throat Components and Multi-Purpose Base are not included in the default package and must be purchased separately. The Throat Components securely hold the target on the angle iron, while the Multi-Purpose Base provides a stable and versatile shooting platform suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Purchase our add-ons above and enjoy a truly customizable shooting experience.
Our setup is designed to be used with 1.5″x.25″ angle iron. We sell all of our reactive targets without the angle iron. You can source it locally for $12-$15, or you can buy it separately in the Replacements and Add on section of this site. It’s a more expensive option simply due to the shipping cost. Remember, we want to make this target kit affordable for all budgets. If possible we recommend you source it locally.
Optional Multi-Purpose Base (MPB)
Looking for a versatile base that can be used with our reactive target systems and dueling tree target systems? Look no further than our patent-pending Multi-Purpose Base (MPB)! With two angle insertion slots, the MPB offers both a vertical position for use with our reactive target systems and a 22-degree lean for our dueling tree target systems. This makes it a great all-in-one solution for your shooting needs. Get the most out of your targets and elevate your shooting experience by adding on the Multi-Purpose Base. (Not included in default package)
- Target height: 19.5″
