DIY Texas Star Shooting Target AR500

DIY Texas Star! Another INDUSTRY FIRST from The Target Man™

We recommend using 46" angle iron for his target.

 


*** Please note. Due to the design theory of the Texas Star, you may have to use sand bags on top of the MPB. The uneven weight distribution makes the target spin unbalanced, causing slight “drift”. If you decide to make your own target base, you can certainly create a more robust design for added stability.
