Silhouette target shooting is a phenomenal way to gauge your accuracy as a shooter. This set features the shapes of four animals constructed from heavy-duty steel. Set at different distances, the chicken, pig, turkey and ram targets will help you prove to yourself that youre ready for anything.
The first match using metal animal silhouettes was held in 1948 in Mexico City. The targets were originally made for centerfire guns. But because rimfire shooters and airgunners wanted to participate, smaller silhouettes were eventually introduced and placed at closer distances.
There are 4 targets used in silhouette matches: chicken, pig, turkey, and ram. Each target is shot 10 times at the following distances:
- Chicken: air rifle = 20 yards / air pistol = 10 yards
- Pig: air rifle = 30 yards / air pistol = 12.50 yards
- Turkey: air rifle = 36 yards / air pistol = 15 yards
- Ram: air rifle = 45 yards / air pistol = 18 yards
