Target Envy - 5 Targets to Order Immediately

When you frequent gun ranges as much as the Gun Talk team, everything becomes a target. We’ve exploded tannerite, shaving cream cans and countless paper targets. We constantly look for new targets that help improve shooting and entertain. Here are five targets that accomplish each task.

Keep in mind: Price and stock could change after publish date, and we may make money from these links.

IQ Target
The RE Factor Tactical IQ Targets offer a challenge. We’ve been shooting these targets frequently this year on our shows. These handy targets aide a shooter’s ability to problem solve on the fly. An endless combination of shapes, colors, numbers and letters make shooters think before they shoot. Plus, each shape is three-inches in diameter, giving the shooter a precision target as well. BUY here.

RE Factor

Challenge Target
A little competition never hurt anyone. The Challenge Target Quick Draw pistol target provides an opportunity to compete against friends. This target also comes in handy when practicing engaging multiple targets. The Quick Draw is rated for all non-magnum handguns. BUY here.


Pop Packs
Triumph System Pop Packs are a blend of reactionary and cognitive recognition targets. Each pack has 1 of 12 unique variable arrangements consisting of different colors, shapes, and numbers. This variety is great for advanced defensive shooters practicing 'call-out' drills. Pop Packs are a pretty unique way to introduce new shooters to the sport if you ask me. BUY here.


Competition Target
Competing against other shooters is how we test our skills. A precision target like the Gamo Competition target requires precision and speed. The auger-like system can be done at home with air guns, giving shooters even more time to develop skills. BUY here.


Tannerite Rimfire
We love things that go BOOM! Tannerite, done safely, enhances any slow day at the range. We all know reactive targets are great for young shooters. The Tannerite Goliath Rimfire targets are a great way to introduce new targets to young shooters. Goliath Rimfire targets include eight targets when purchased, giving shooters more opportunity for fun practice. BUY here.


Targets are tools used to develop skills and educate. Shooting is fun. We might as well shoot some fun targets while developing our craft. ~ KJ
