Frequently Asked Questions:
1.) We see your team shooting these targets much closer than recommended? Can we shoot closer?
Answer: Negative. Much of what we do is substantial abuse testing for QC and R&D of new and existing systems. Always follow our recommended distances for training. While shooting closer often does not pose a safety threat, it is harder on the systems. Users will potentially increase wear and tear with leads to unsafe targets when misused.
2.) Does this system feature adjustable lean angles?
Answer: Yes. Our CNC formed brackets offer 3 levels of lean. The steepest setting (bottom hole) allows nearly 40 degrees of forward lean.
3.) Does this system work with my current hostage assembly?
Answer: YES! The Mini A-DAP works with ALL A-DAP system accessories, including the hostage, and armored posts.
4.) Is this system covered under your warranty?
Answer: Yes! Our Mini A-DAP system in 3/8″ AR550 features a 3 year strike plate warranty. If something cracks or breaks prematurely, we’ll replace it so long as it was used properly. We take immense pride in how we treat and stand by customers. This system is absolutely no different. You are purchasing the highest quality systems from us and they will perform as such. 1/2″ AR550 systems feature our lifetime warranty. For FULL details please see our warranty page on the site.
5.) I already have a base and A-DAP top bracket or armored post, can I buy the Mini A-DAP target plate separately?
Answer: Yes. Go into our “individual products” section of the website. You can find the target plates HERE.
6.) Where are these products produced?
Answer: We produce our products in Lancaster County PA. We oversee every step of the process, QC, production, packaging, and shipping. From start to finish, TA Targets is manufacturing high quality systems for hard use. Our owners own the machinery, facility, equipment, etc. We have invested heavily in newer specialty equipment to further streamline our processes and increase quality even further.
7.) Is the Armor Plating on the targets US material?
Answer: No. The “armor” we use for the strike plates (actual target impact plates) is made from a proprietary material that is manufactured for us in Sweden. this is the best material we have found in the world. We were largely dissatisfied with the QC of American made strike plates and had too many issues with quality control. Eventually we hope a US manufacturer creates a material that is as available and as stringent as our Swedish plate. For now, this is the best material to service our customers. US Manufactured AR500 and AR550 is used in areas that are NOT main strike plates. Some examples of this are the Rifle Dueling Tree Shields, Plate Rack Shields, Arachnid front shield and hostage brackets.
8.) Where does the rest of the steel come from?
Answer: Traditionally all other steel used in our systems is US origin. During the “covid pandemic” the supply chain has experienced extreme pressures. Under some circumstances some of our tube steel and angle had to be purchased from Canadian raw materials. We do our absolute best to minimize this, not because of quality concerns, but because we deeply desire to produce our products from US steel. We will not use Chinese steel plate, angles, or tubes. Rest assured.
9.) How close can I shoot the target?
Answer:This system features a FIXED lean angle and is rated for pistols at 10 yards, .223 at 50 yards. For Calibers like 308 Winchester we recommend our full size Vital Zone Target System. *NOTE: Distances are determined with lead core, copper jacketed ammo at 3,000 FPS muzzle or LESS. Faster ammunition may require further distances. This system features our newest adjustable lean brackets for optimum target lean for various uses and distances. Please note: we recommend purchasing the steel armored post if you desire to use the steepest hole location with the C Zone plate.
- 3/8″ AR550 version: Rated for pistols at 10 yards, .223 at 50 yards, 308 at 50 yards, larger calibers 100 yards. *NOTE: Distances are determined with lead core, copper jacketed ammo at 3,000 FPS muzzle or LESS. Faster ammunition may require further distances.
- 1/2″ AR550 version: Rated for pistols at 10 yards, .223 at 30 yards (**when using proper ammo**), 308 at 50 yards, larger calibers at 100 yards. *NOTE: Distances are determined with lead core, copper jacketed ammo at 3,000 FPS muzzle or LESS. Faster ammunition may require further distances.
10.) Does this product fall under Prop. 65 warnings?
Answer: Maybe. Just in case, be sure not to eat the paint or lick the target before or after you’ve shot it. If you are just curious, led tastes horrible and will probably cause mental damage. If you have done it once you are likely to do it again. Handle at your own risk, if you choose, you may wear an industry grade hazmat suit and gas mask with a HEPA filter and good luck charm on your wrist.
