Title: Motorized Targets for Air Guns
Post by: maui4jim on October 12, 2017, 11:07:35 AM
Hello everyone,

I am an attorney and avid air gun shooter in Kentucky. I have been working with an inventor who has developed a motorized target system for air guns and have helped her get a patent.

You can see her invention at www.firerough.com.

You will notice it is more expensive than most targets. But,over the long run, certain cost efficiencies occur. Paper targets are dispensable and can be expensive over the long haul. Other metal targets don't provide the movement of the Fire Rough system and are not built to the indestructible standards of the Fire Rough system.
 
Another thought is an indoor air gun range may buy the system to add excitement to the shooting experience at the range. They could put one or two of the systems in their lanes.

I hope she makes it. I enjoy shooting at her target system....Jim

In my opinion, it would be nice for her to use a bit more appropriate audio for his videos.

I wish her luck but doesn't do anything for me.

 I hate shooting paper so for me this is a great idea for sure. And it helps motor skills, does it have speed control? It would be nice to speed it up as your skill set became better.

I think I need an electronic trap that has a rat darting forward, grabbing a mouthful of peanut butter, and then darting back. Each time, the rat darts forward to a new spot with no real pattern.

yup that's what I need.  ::)

Oh wait I already have that, only the rats aren't electronic, they are real!!!
