3/8″ AR500 IPSC Hostage Target

The main body of this target is our classic IPSC Reactive Steel target.

3/8″ AR500 IPSC Hostage Target Features include the following:

  • Main target face measures 12″ W x 24″ H x 3/8″ thick factory tested AR500 steel
  • Sits at a 27 degree angle to drive bullet splatter downwards and reduce ricochet hazards
  • A reactive target (IPSC Plate) that swings backwards upon being hit, resetting via gravity
  • Hot-dip Galvanized back bracket that will never rust
  • Made of 3/8″ AR500 steel, rated for Handgun, Rifle and Shotgun
  • Works great with any of our stands and even better with the Galvanized Steel Post

As if that is not enough value in one target, our IPSC Hostage target also includes a Red Hostage Plate. Some of those features include:

  • 5″ x 3/8″ swinging Red AR500 Hostage Plate
  • Red AR500 Hostage Plate swings from side to side upon being hit
  • Plate will sometimes swing all the way back, keeping shooter guessing at to the next location.

**3/8″ Hostage Target does NOT include stand or post.**

What Is The Grizzly Galvanization Process?

Our Grizzly Galvanization Process assures that your target will continue functioning for a very long time even if left outside in the elements for years on end. It also ensures your targets are going to keep looking great and not turn into a pile of rust. This process is a key element of our commitment to providing the LONGEST LASTING Steel Target Systems on the market.

**Manufacturer’s suggested distance for all Rifle calibers is 100yds, 25yds or further for Pistol calibers and no more than 3,000fps at the target.**

    Fantastic target! Really fun to shoot. I have over a thousand rounds on the target so far, and no signs of bending or deformation. The target sits outside all day in the elements, and doesn’t rust or corrode. Last but not least, great group of people that work for Grizzly; they helped me pick the right target to suit my needs.

    This target is a monster. Compared to my shoot steel ipsc the grizzly target is better. The mount and stand is beefier along with mounting hardware. The swing arm hostage disk is sturdy just like the whole target. I’ll definitely be buying from grizzly from now on.
