Mini Review: Zombie Targets

A good friend gave me a set of Zombie Shooting Targets for Christmas that I've been using for the last couple of times I've gone shooting.

They are fun and great gift (one of the best shooting gifts I've received, really funny!), but for any "serious" shooting, they have some issues. The biggest is because they are a lot of black and gray printing on white paper, it can be difficult to see where you're hitting when hung at the range.

At 30ft:

It can be pretty hard to see what you've hit, especially on this specific version ("Zombie Chuck"). When close up its no problem, however. Here is the same target at 3ft:

And lastly the target at the counter, or "too late" range for a zombie. :)

So, to wrap it up, they are fun targets and worth buying some as a present or joke. If you're hosing down the target with a GSG-5 or something like that, or are just having a day blowing off steam or getting used to a new boomstick, there are totally worth it.

But if you're seriously trying to work on grouping, trigger control, and/or shot placement, they aren't that great.

I'll happily use the rest of the them for fun, then go back to my green torso silhouettes.
