    At the farm I had eight circular Hardox 450 gongs set up. The gongs were 4 inches, 6 inches and ten inches in diameter and were suspended between Warratah standards placed at various distances to provide a one MOA or less target area. They are going in for some maintenance today and then the challenge is to find another place to erect them.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    They look like good hang points on those targets. The 4"needs some attention hope you have some luck finding a home for them

    Cheeky bugger. That particular gong has never been hung up. The others are a bit smashed about so I would photograph a god one. The gongs that were hanging had all been painted and reprinted several times.

    Yep they hang so the projectile deflects straight down when it hits. The only issue is that the lugs are mild steel so if you get a hit on one it tends to smash it about a bit or breaks the weld. That is why the need for maintenance.

    Weld the lugs in behind the gong.

    Worst that will happen then is the chain could get hit and bust.

    Cheers

    Only problem Pete is the angle starts to get a little steep on the far targets. I don't mind fixing them from time to time, doesn't take me long and keeps me out of trouble.

    Doesn't happen thaaaat often, provided @AndrewH isn't having a bad day

    We also had this setup at 600yards, 3, 6 and 10inch. 3 was only hit a couple of times.

    That is a bloody good idea Pete. I will discuss that possibility today.

    I thought your big one in that line up was a twelve inch Nibblet.

    I think we determined that Nibblet can't do imperial measurements last night, so what's it in cm or mm?

    Unfortunately aircraft are imperial.

    From memory, which mine is shite, was 250mm, 25cm or 10inches. Probably just a Rushy '12inces', always scale it up when you tell the Mrs
