    Challenge your shooting skills with the Do-All Impact Seal Self-Healing Star Target Pro Pack. These impact seal ground bouncing reactive targets were originally designed for military, law enforcement, and fast action pistol training. These action targets are unpredictable and they challenging the shooter to locate and readjust for every shot. These stars fly, bounce, roll, and run every time they're shot, giving you a different shot every time.

    We at Food Court Seel Team 6 3/4 do not use them, as that would look like practice and we are natural-born expert shots that do not need to practice.

    And besides, with the price of ammo still at breath-takingly high prices, it would be fiscally irresponsible to throw away money shooting at anything except international terrorists intent on spreading fear and death to the good shoppers who pay our saleries.

    stay safe.

    Now that I have a source, I prefer my smart ammunition. Somewhat more expensive, but it never misses, over penetrates, nor requires follow-up shots - it makes laser guided obsolete. It does have a distinctive garlic odor though.

    PS - don't ask me where I get it - you have to be on the pre-approved list.

    Be careful of the ground, Rick O'Shay, that you shoot at or the stars may shoot back.

    I have the kind in the shape of a box. It's rather unimpressive. Bullets tend to fly through it without making it dance much. The stars you linked look as if they might work better, though. I can vouch for the material: a .45 goes right through it leaving nothing but a dirty pinhole.

    Darn put out of business selling my tin can reactive targets. Not to mention my swinging water balloon target kit.
