The Target Man™ DIY "Heads Up” AR500 Reactive Steel Shooting Target
DIY "Heads Up” is a reactive target system constructed from ballistic grade AR500. DIY "Heads Up" doubles as a pertinent target head shot and gut shot target aid…. both of which are essential impact points for self defense. 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”.
This kit is available in a few different configurations for all budget levels. DIY "Heads Up” is available with or without our patent-pending Multi-Purpose Base (MPB) and .22 Mild Steel Paddle. The DIY "Heads Up” is un-welded, but don’t worry as assembly is as easy as 1-2-3:
(1) Assemble slotted “throat” (aka target holding fixture) like a puzzle using the slotted/tabbed pieces. Ensure all pieces are “square”.
(2) Tack the kit into position with your welder.
(3) Start welding!
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.
