    Don't have experience with them, but I would think the 3-D glasses might affect your vision to some extent.

    I think it would work amazing with 3d targets, as long as you have 3d glasses in the real world.
    YMMV

    I just can't imagine that would work.

    All the methods I have seen for "3D" images create the effect by "tricking" your eyes into thinking they are looking at the same image, even though they are each seeing a different image slightly offset from each other.

    I have never used these types of targets, but here is what I imagine would happen. If you were right eye dominant and shooting at a "3D" target that appears to be closer to you than the actual target is, you would actually hit the paper target left of the intended point. If you were left eye dominant you would tend to hit right of the intended point.

    It would probably be cool, but I also think these would be single-use targets because the first hole in the target would not match what the other eye saw and the "3D" illusion would not work as well.

    That is without a doubt the stupidest idea I've heard this week.

    Why 3D?
    Forget the stationary targets and sights...start shooting things set up at the range that move either towards you, or across your path...and in dim light.

    Now you're talking real life WalMart Parking lot scenarios. OMO

    The targets themselves are quite good though.
    Not sure about the 3-D advantage but, I have purchased targets from them before and I like them.

    Think about it for a second. Unless you only have one functioning eye (or you're closing one eye) every target you shoot is "3D". Unless you live inside a video game.

    well... we wouldn't have to wear 3d glasses in the real world. because our natural vision already shows us 3 dimensional scenery.

    Looks neat. I emailed the boss about getting some to try. We looked at these folks at SHOT to see about upgrading part of our range to rifle caliber using their plastic block barriers. Neat stuff.



    But the 3D isn't the neatest target they sell. This one is!

    I've used them - a regular at the range had them a few weeks ago. They do, in fact, look 3-dimensional. It doesn't really change anything about shooting them, other than the fact that they look cool if staring at the target rather than shooting it is what you're interested in. Ultimately, 2D or 3D, the target profile is always the same.
