Spending an afternoon at home plinking is a great way to relax and get in a bit of target practice to keep your shooting skills up.
Although there are lots of homemade DIY plinking target ideas for those who want to get a bit creative themselves or need to find some targets on a budget, there is also a whole range of entertaining and challenging targets being made for those who want to try something different.
We have put together a list of fun plinking targets that are available to buy, which will not only provide a good laugh for family and friends who might be watching, but also help you improve your shooting accuracy by continuing to practice and test your skills with different types of targets.
These targets, which jump back each time you hit them, make for hours of fun. Made of four reversible sided targets, you spend less time setting up targets and more time actually practicing your shooting in quick succession.
The targets will also make you improve your accuracy by ensuring you hit the target as close to the centre as possible. If you don’t, it will either not flip over, or throw it off centre, making it even more challenging to continually hit your mark.
To make things even more fun and create a bit of competition, you can get two jumping targets and race your friends and family. You can race by seeing who gets the furtherest along either by having a set number of shots each or a certain time limit.
Duelling Tree Target
If you are looking for something that is much more exciting then just shooting at paper targets, then the duelling tree target will provide hours of shooting fun. It has six steel reactive plates that swing from one side to the other side when hit, allowing you to compete against friends all day and not have to go down the range once to reset the target.
Due to the forward leaning center stand, the targets are gravity reset. By using gravity to do the hard work, it doesn’t rely on springs or mechanisms. This makes it much more reliable and ensures all shooters continue to have a fun experience every time without the worry of easily breaking it.
It is also made of good, heavy steel and is very sturdy. Depending on what calibre you try, or looking for extra stability, placing some sandbags or weights on the legs will ensure it stays in place.
Tic Tac Toe Target Spinner
A family friendly game that combines shooting skills and strategy in one target. This fun target will provide hours of shooting entertainment for both adults and kids alike, whilst helping to improve you shooting accuracy.
As there is an X and an O on each plate, the player who succeeds in placing three perspective marks in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row wins the game. Although it can be hard to predict which side it will land on, you can still just aim, shoot and have fun until a winner is declared!
The target has a corrosion resistant powder coating finish and is of a sturdy durable construction for its size.
Ferris Wheel Target
