I like using binary exploding targets when exposing new shooters to the joys of shooting.
It rewards the shooter and gives immediate positive feedback. I haven’t used them as much as I could because of the expense, and the fact that typical exploding targets need a centerfire rife to detonate.
When I found the Last Man Standing targets, I knew they had something special. Their targets are affordable, and they have some that are reliably detonated by .22lr.
I did learn that when using .22 Sensitive Exploding Targets, you get much more reliable detonation when you attach them to a hard surface with the enclosed stickers. I was able to get some to detonate against the ground, but it was MUCH more satisfying when the detonated against a hard target.
I also learned in my last pumpkin shooting video, that while one 22 Sensitive Exploding Targets makes a nice satisfying crack, mixing all ten and shooting at one time makes a scary big “boom” – I won’t do that again for a while…
There are a lot of manufacturers of binary targets, but I find this one to be affordable and innovative. I particularly like their 22 targets.
