An investment into YOU

The Steel and Silver promotion is about our team investing into YOU. We have two packages available during this promotion that allow you to get the steel you need for training, and the silver you need to hedge against inflation. You have supported us through the years, so we have decided to invest into your future. Precious metals are a great way to take cash (fiat currency) and turn it into a hard asset. We don’t look at silver as an investment to make a ton of money. All we desire to do is lock SOME of our cash into an asset that appreciates over time, often faster than inflation.

We know there is a lot of skepticism surrounding precious metals. We also know many of you have never considered purchasing precious metals of your own. Further, we recognize that our government is on a printing rampage as we speak. Banks are collapsing, and our dollar continues to become worth less and less.

Our Dollar and Economy is Pillaged

Want to embark on a fun test? Check out this inflation calculator: https://www.usinflationcalculator.com. Since 2015, our dollar has become worth 27% less. Since 1980, our buying power has decreased by nearly 270%. If you made $30,000 in 1980, that would equate to $109,529.13 in today’s money. Crazy. And the craziness continues as we allow politicians and political elite to destroy the value of our money and our economy.. So what can WE do about it? For one, we will invest in YOU. You heard that right. If you support us by purchasing one of two packages of targets, we’ll send you free silver along with your order. This silver should be held safely and viewed as an investment. We are giving you an asset that could appreciate greatly over time! Without our customers, TA Targets wouldn’t exist. We also fully understand the circumstances we all are facing in our nation. It is for all of these reasons that the Silver and Steel promotion exists. Read below to view BOTH packages that are available to you through this promotion.

Package #1:

Purchase ANY COMPLETE Mini A-DAP, Mini Vital, C Zone, or Vital Zone Target system and receive TWO free 1 ounce rounds (or bars) of .9999 silver. The design and style WILL vary based on availability and you cannot specify a shape or design. You can choose 1/2″ or 3/8″ for your Mini A-DAP target system OR C Zone system. Thickness does NOT matter. Note: The Silver MAY ship separately for security reasons in a padded envelope or might be included in your target packaging. Find these packages HERE.

Package #2:

Purchase a target base AND 50 pack of USPSA targets and receive ONE 1 ounce round (or bars based on availability) of .9999 silver. Note: The Silver MAY ship separately for security reasons in a padded envelope or might be included in your target packaging. Find this package HERE.

There are no limits to the packages while supplies last. You can buy as many systems as you’d like, and we will send you the applicable amount of silver. Check the packages below:

Read The A-DAP Instruction Manual HERE.

Description
The Reduced C Zone Target for the A-DAP system.

Our reduced C Zone Steel Target (Mini A-DAP System) is our most popular steel target system in our lineup. It measures approximately 8″ wide and 16″ tall. It is designed to function with either our A-DAP Top Bracket or our A-DAP Armored Posts. The back side of the Reduced C Zone target plate features our CNC formed adjustable angles. The adjustable angles allow multiple angles of forward lean. On the most aggressive setting, users can position the target to an astounding 38 degrees of forward lean.

Forward Lean Dispels Fragmentation And Absorbs Bullet Energy.

Bullets fragment upon impact of our reduced C Zone Steel Target Plate. Having a forward lean AND movement does a few things for the system. First, it helps to absorb the impact of the incoming rounds. This is simply physics. Because forward lean and movement absorbs energy better, the system experiences a much longer life over fixed plates. Once the bullet impacts and fragments, the movement and lean deflect the fragmentation directly towards the ground. Because of the meticulously designed position of the plate over the base, fragmentation entirely misses the targets base. The AR550 Reduced C Zone Plate packs all these features into one amazing target system.

AR550 Steel Is The MINIMUM For Our Products.

Our select grade of AR550 steel is the highest quality we have found on planet earth. Tested and produced to exacting specifications means more reliability, better consistency. Performance is so good, in fact, that we back these systems with an industry leading warranty. Buy once, cry NEVER. Spend more time focused on training, less time worrying about your target systems.

Incredible acoustic feedback, high levels of accountability.

Although small in size, the Reduced C Zone Target plate features an amazing ring. Shooters will be able to immediately determine successful hits. The small size also forces a high level of accountability in all shooting scenarios and drills.

Solid, planted, ready for hard use.

People buying our systems are dedicated to serious training. No plinkers here. For that reason, we have purposely overbuilt our systems. They are designed to be put to work. Rest assured, our systems will perform when it matters most.

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.

Mini Vital Zone Steel Target

Mini Vital Zone Steel Target

$
The Mini Vital Zone is purpose built for accountability and skill development.

The Mini Vital Zone target is modeled after our Mini A-DAP, a Reduced C Zone AR550 steel target system. The main difference between this steel target and our other reduced C zone Mini A-DAP is the addition of a reactive paddle. The reactive paddle is a 33% reduced A Zone which forces shooters to train to a higher standard. Small steel target force higher accountability and ultimately further assist in more refined shooting skills. The next generation breakdown base coupled with the Gen 5 A-DAP Top Bracket makes our systems even more refined and adaptable.

Each and every target plate is manufactured from our hand selected AR550 that meets our minimum hardness requirements. We track each and every plate and place a serial number and lot number behind the CNC formed angles behind the target plate.

 

Description
What makes the Mini Vital Zone Steel Target so effective?

The Mini Vital Zone was designed to push the limits of standards for pistol and rifle shooters. 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.

What is the purpose behind the Mini Vital Zone?

This challenging target will help shooters train efficiently and with purpose. This 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. Just understand: This system is meant for heavy duty use, no corners were cut. Buy once, Cry Never.

FAQ:

Can I purchase this target system in 1/2″ AR550?
  • Answer: No. Because this system is primarily designed for fundamental pistol training, we offer it only in 3/8″ AR550 at this time. Rest assured, this system is built to last and will perform to the standards you have come to know us for.
This system is designed for pistol training, can I shoot rifles at this system?
  • Answer: Yes. However, we recommend ONLY light carbines for this system. Light carbines are: .223/5.56 NATO, 300 BLK, 7.62×39, 5.45×39. Light carbines MAY be used with proper ammo as close as 50 yards. Note: We do not recommend using 308 on this system unless you are 150 yards and beyond. The paddle is extremely small to practice pistol fundamentals and for that reason, close range 308 impacts will be extremely violent. It is SAFE to use 308, however accelerated paddle wear and tear MAY be noticed. Although, the good thing is: Paddles are very inexpensive to replace. For this reason, if you are going to shoot larger calibers, we highly recommend adding a paddle or two to your order.
Does this system work with my current hostage assembly?
Does this system feature adjustable lean?
  • Answer: No. This system is a fixed forward lean target so it does not have multiple holes to adjust forward lean. Therefore it is set at approximately 25 degrees of forward lean. The paddle is slightly less forward lean because of limited space behind the target plate. This is due to the fact that we had to keep the paddle bracket small which means less room for adjustability.
Since there is no lean adjustment, is it safe?
  • Answer: Of course! This is a safe target system, just like our other systems. With that being said, however, you MUST use proper ammunition and follow our distance guidelines. Always remember to wear eye and ear protection as well. ALWAYS!
Is this system covered under your warranty?
  • Answer: Yes! Any of our 3/8″ AR550 systems have a 1 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 our customers. This system is absolutely no different. You are purchasing the highest quality systems from us, therefore, they will perform as such.
Is this a pre-order?
    • Answer: No. Because, we have plenty of stock on hand, we are prepared to produce as many units as are needed. However, during product drops there CAN be some delays. Most orders will ship in 1-2 days but please understand there may be up to 10 days to process orders for this new system. So this totally depends on order volume.
I already have a base and A-DAP top bracket or armored post, can I buy the Mini VZ target and paddle separately?
Where are these products produced?
  • Answer: We produce our products in Lancaster County PA. We also 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. We have invested heavily in newer specialty equipment to further streamline our processes and increase quality even further.

  • Answer: Traditionally all other steel used in our systems is US origin. During the “covid pandemic” the supply chain has experienced extreme pressures. And so, 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.

Reactive C Zone Steel Target – Vital Zone

Reactive C Zone Steel Target – Vital Zone

Rated 0 out of 5
$
What makes the Vital Zone Target so special?

The Vital Zone Target is the next iteration of our older Gen 3 Zone Target. As customers may recall, we offered a Zone Target system that was on our site for a few years. It required welding and featured much smaller paddles than the Vital Zone Target. What this means is it was NOT close range carbine rated and was unable to be used with calibers like 308. We phased that older system out to make room for this one: The Vital Zone Target.

The Vital Zone target is a reactive steel target that is approximately 12″W X 24″H. The paddle is a true A Zone size based off of USPSA specifications.

What material is the Vital Zone Produced from?

This reactive steel target system is produced from the highest quality 3/8″ AR550 money can buy. The bracket is CNC formed and adjustable. There are 3 settings for forward lean. The next generation breakdown base coupled with the Gen 5 A-DAP Top Bracket makes our systems even more refined and adaptable.

Description
 Reactive C Zone Steel Target – Vital Zone

The Reactive C Zone Steel Target – Vital Zone is created from a USPSA sized C Zone plate. Then we cut out a TRUE A Zone center section and mounted a paddle behind the opening. There is a DISTINCT audible difference between an edge hit along the C Zone plate or a perfect shot placement within the A Zone. Also, use fresh paint to tell where shots are landing. This system is designed for departments and shooters looking to be able to better track shot placement without the need to replace paper targets constantly on a range with multiple shooters. This means faster, more efficient training which means more rounds down range with purpose.

Built tough for hard training.

The C Zone plate as well as the paddle are constructed from our legendary, ultra high quality 3/8″ AR550 steel. Due to the nature of the construction and brackets we ONLY offer this target in 3/8″ AR550 at this time. There are NO WELDS on this target plate whatsoever. That means the C Zone plate and paddle can be flipped and shot on the reverse side. This equates to double the life of the system. The lack of welds means the structural integrity of the system is retained and our customers get the absolute most value out of this system, PERIOD.

How is the Vital Zone attached to the post?

CNC Formed angle brackets allow the target plate to be adjusted to different lean settings. Yes, this is 2.0 Spec. All A-DAP system accessories interface with this system.

5.) I already have a base and A-DAP top bracket or armored post, can I buy the Vital Zone target plate and paddle separately? 

Answer: Yes. Go into our “individual products” section of the website.

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 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: Rated for pistols at 10 yards, .223-308 at 50 yards. Larger calibers 100 yards. Users should be cautious using magnum calibers on this system. Increase distance for calibers larger than 308/6.5CM to avoid damaging plate. If high volume large caliber training is desired, consider our C Zone A-DAP System.
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.
