What makes the Mini Vital Zone Target so effective?
The Mini Vital Zone was designed to push the limits of standards for pistol shooters. While this target system can be used with many calibers including many rifle calibers, we designed this largely to assist in building better pistol fundamentals. The outer target plate starts off as our Mini A-DAP plate but then we added a 30% reduced A Zone in the center. Behind this plate is a HD CNC cut paddle that we form in our press brake that holds a reactive paddle. Shooters can work various fundamental drills while attempting to land shots on the reduced A Zone paddle. This challenging target can be used in virtually endless ways and will help shooters train efficiently and with purpose. The Mini Vital Zone Steel Target features an aggressive forward lean for durability and fragmentation mitigation. Both the outer plate and paddle can also move when struck which further extends the life expectancy of the system. To balance off the cost of the complete system, we chose to use 3/8″ AR550 steel for both the paddle and the main target plate and 1/4″ Mild steel for the bent paddle mounting bracket. Keeping the price lower means that more people can get out and train well.
