    Its all about political correctness. The mice men out there don't want anyone shooting at people shaped targets.

    So, many clubs and even police organizations have switched from the silhouette to the more impersonal and correct center mass target which looks more like a coke bottle than a target.

    Even the BlackB27 police targets in some places have been changed to the dark blue ones....we can't have people"preconditioned" to shoot at black targets now can we?

    In some places, common sense is still apparent and such foolishness is not tolerated. For the rest of the world where mice men rule, shooting at ANYTHING is highly discouraged and will continue to be so.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I called and asked for clarification on this policy, from the membership coordinator today.
    Apparently there was a misunderstanding between me and the person I spoke with yesterday.
    Silver Eagle DOES allow human shaped targets.
    What they DON'T allow is actual human targets. ( No, just kidding ). What they DON'T allow is pictures of real people.

    Big difference.

    Thanks for the replies, sorry the thread was based on an error.

    It's still a bunch of feelgood pointless BS.

    Broward County (FL) range at Markham Park does not allow any targets other than Bulls eye. No human OR animal shapes allowed.

    Go to Blue Ridge Arsenal down off Rte 50 and Rte 28. You can get picture targets of all your favorite people. Blast away to your heart's content at a picture of Saddam or Osama et. al. Go tell Silver Eagle what a bunch of whatevers they are for not allowing those types of targets on your way to BRA. IIRC same price to shoot as well.

    ahh with this blue target thing, what about the Smurf's - does that mean we can shoot them ok?? Actually there is a local LE that only allows blue. Common sense sure is not.

    What about zombies? My range sells them complete with a side picture of the brain at the exact angle that the zombie is positioned in.

    Gives a better shot analysis after the fact!

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    When the Smurfs get organized and start protesting about it maybe that color will change too.
