[quote postid="5521113" user="nmchapma"]No. Absolutly not. I think that is one of the more ridiculous POV's I've heard in a while.

Amen to that, but be careful. Never argue with an idget, since they bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

As discussed on earlier offerings of similar products, use ball ammunition. Jacketed hallow points are no fun to dig out of these.

Anyone else feel like this is a stupid comment regardless of what sales are running?

Thunder is right. Only 1 5" Star for $30.00. Woot is much better deal. I'm ordering the Max.

I have two other products made with the same material. One is a cube-like thing and the other is spherical.

.17 and .22 are just fine with these. .44 Rem or Mag will damage them (and send them 10' up into the air sometimes - fun) but you can still get a lot of use out of them anyway - it's just a rubber material that has some give so it doesn't explode when hit.

Fun for target practice. I tend to throw them out about 20' from where I am and keep shooting them farther and farther away.

Pew pew pew.

Got 8 of these, we use them all the time.
Mostly for .380 and .45 and .357 use and smaller rifles, of the sort you use to shoot prairie dogs with.
They hold up well, a square one is made that is larger that is better for practice for coyotes and cougers but this is great for plinking practice.

Well, what I posted on Amazon was that since I have yet to find a round nose .40SW bullet, the standard truncated (stepped) bullets tear these up, not as badly as any hollow point (including .22) will tear them, but the standard 40SW will chew holes in them.

I shot one of these with my laser and it did not work AT ALL.

Will these ship to states like NY, NJ and MA?

Or do you need a permit?


These are not a restricted item in any way, shape, or form... not a fire arm or ammunition thus not restricted shipping to our wonderful nanny state... now IF gander mountain decides not to do business with residents of MA and refuses to ship them here that's there perogative, but it's not because of state laws.

What is the incident level of ricochet with this target? It's an important factor in identifying, setting and enforcing your safety zones. Keep it safe out there to protect the sport we love!

DITTO!!! Amazon opening the Cambridge office (which as I understand has nothing to do with fulfillment, but rather development of streaming services and web services) just took away the advantage to buying from them by saving sales tax.
I know, nothing new to you guys in Cali and a few other states...
Just wait, when the feds approve allowing states to collect internet sales tax on everything (constitutional or not, they will approve it) sites like Amazon will be hurting themselves - amazingly Amazon supports universal online sales tax blindly.

You're watching too much tv; liberal media has warped your mind and made you feel like your comment is normal. You find yourself pointing at everyone else, how "intolerable" and "insensitive" everyone else is and probably would never believe anyone who said you never had any sense of personal responsibility. Learn how to do things for yourself, and enjoy others that enjoy things like this with a pure heart. You'll find yourself less critical, more fun to be around, and shooting stars will be fun!
