    Hi guys, I bought the 8″ AR500 Reactive Gong Target System I want to say pre-covid, anyways was cleaning out my garage came across a 2×4 and some conduit sticks. I than remember that heavy box that has been on a shelf for years. took everything out assembled within minutes. I must say I’m impressed. very tough, durable, and no made in China stickers. Very Proud made her in the good ole United States of America. We only shot 9mm and 357 sig about 350 rounds or so, but not even a dent spray some white paint on almost as good as new. Next will see how they hold up to the 5.56. Very easy break down and set up. Keep up the great work.
