The 8″ plates are held in place with a unique spring retention system. When shot, the plates are released from the retention pocked and fall to the ground. The change in weight distribution causes the hub and 8″ plates to rotate. The precision machined shaft and duel pillow bearings maximize the speed and change of direction with each successful shot on the plates.
Resetting the target is quick and simple. Just lift the spring and insert the stem of the plate into the pocket. One person can reset all five plates in about 20 seconds.
Shooting Star Targets have been used in competition for years. The Texas Star is commonly used in 3-Gun and USPSA matches. The Star Target also has a place in tactical and law enforcement programs as training on moving targets has become mandatory for many law enforcement agencies across the country.
