One of the newest targets out from Birchwood Casey is the Silhouette Hostage Paddle Target, which provides a new kind of challenge for those looking to add dynamism to their range visits.

The Silhouette Hostage Paddle Target is built from 0.5-inch AR500 steel, which can withstand centerfire rifle and pistol rounds without suffering damage or dents that increase the chances of a ricochet. The target uses a center-mass silhouette that measures 11 inches by 18 inches.

For precision-shooting challenges, the target incorporates a 6-inch paddle located behind either the left- or right-hand side of the silhouette's head, allowing shooters to practice precision shots in a "save the hostage" scenario.

The new Silhouette Hostage Paddle Target is designed to be portable and can head to the range easily. The suggested retail price on the new target is $349.99.

The hostage target is part of the Birchwood Casey World of Target's lineup, which provides more than 20 different solid-steel target for everything from rimfire rifles and pistols, centerfire pistols and centerfire rifles.

Shooters can create an exciting and challenging set of targets by incorporating the hostage silhouette with other targets from the Birchwood Casey lineup, such as the Handgun Dueling Tree, made from AR500 steel, or the Popper Steel Target, made from 3/8-inch AR500 steel.

The company also provides rimfire pistol and rifle shooters with inexpensive steel target galleries designed to give .22-caliber plinkers an added level of fun with skill-building setups that won't break the bank.

Targets made from AR500 steel are great items to have on the range, due to their reusability, portability and the instant feedback received from hearing rounds impacting steel. This easy target setup enables shooters to stay out on the range longer and have more trigger time, since there's no reason to call a ceasefire to check paper targets or spend money on expensive spotting scopes to see hits at a distance.
