The Flash Target is intended to eliminate long range target resetting. The standard 8" hex with a 5" head hangs below a horizontal stainless shaft. There is a large white piece of polycarbonate plastic in front, and hiding behind is a smaller piece of plastic that is painted fluorescent orange.
When the target is hit the swinging motion of the target moved the white plastic down and the orange plastic up, so the shooter (and the range officer) get an eye full of orange. No question about whether or not the target is hit, no whining. advises that a .223 caliber/5.56mm NATO bullet will effectively activate this target out to 400 yards. This target was used in the 2002 USPSA 3 Gun Nationals in the "Bolt Rifle" stages, out to as far as 700 yards and continues to be used in most major 3-gun competitions.
Note: The vertical flatbar that the target is connected to has been turned sideways, so the bullet can no longer go through the thickness of the flatbar. The bushing that pivots on the SS shaft is still manufactured for grease zerks, so it swings easy.
