The Hostage Target is really a head sized target behind a hostage, like a terrorist holding a hostage. This target starts with the standard 500 Brinell Steel full size silhouette target which is 18" wide, by 30" tall. The body is 24" tall, the head is an additional 6" x 6", to get to 30". On the back of this, welded two tabs that mount a removable 1" diameter solid round bar. An 8" diameter target on a bracket that can slide left to right on the round bar. This enables the person calling the shots to be able to expose any amount of the terrorist he that he/she chooses to, varying the degree of shot difficulty. The round can be positioned all the way to either side, or at any point in between. When the round is hit it bounces back to the position you set. This reduces the amount of time to reset the target, so you can spend more time training and less time reseting targets.
This target utilizes our standard post and base combination, putting the top of the shoulder at 5' tall. There is a structural tube base, with a structural tube post. The post telescopes on to the top of the base, and on to a tube mounted on the back of the target. You can shoot the post tube anyplace (except at ground level) and you will still be able to slide it off of the target. Usually, if the overlapping area isn't protected, a misplaced round will dent both tubes, eliminating the possibility of sliding the outer one off of the inner one.
