Jeff Kersten and Robin Godolphin of Gander Mountain Academy discuss a number of different types of shooting targets and how they can be used with your firearms. Paper, metal and even exploding shooting targets are reviewed. Depending on what type of firearm and range you have, reactive targets can make your shooting more fun and challenging. Exploding targets, made by mixing Tannerite, are always fun when used responsibly in a controlled environment. Paper targets come in a variety of styles for a variety of shooting endeavors.
