I found SmDial’s target system he’s posted on the forum to be quite intriguing. I haven’t been able to find many (read: any) bullseye matches around where I live. I wanted a target that I could transport by myself, setup anywhere and used batteries that I already have and are easy to change and charge. Milwaukee M18 batteries were my poison. I contacted Dial and he put together a control board after I explained my plans a bit. I already had the steel and aluminum from my own stocks so the whole build cost me around $250. If I build it again, I’d change a bit around, I’d like the target to face a bit faster. But my original goal was to have it man portable, rigid, repeatable, easy to use and because I’m all out of spares in the limb/finger dept. I really liked the idea that it runs off of the “Bullseye Match” application on my iPad. So I can run it by myself from my iPad. Thus far it checks all these boxes. I still need to machine a few things once I get some lathe/mill time, and I may change from a direct drive to a chain drive, ┬ábut here’s the target so far. ┬áThank you VERY much to Smdial and Mr. Talpey, the bullseye match app developer. Both have been indispensable in helping me get my target built and functioning.
