Proficiency with a firearm can be greatly influenced by the quality of the equipment used during training, and reactive steel targets are a great example of this. Offering instant visual and auditory feedback of a hit, steel targets assist in the development of muscle memory, which translates directly into faster speed and better accuracy with a given firearm. The Salute Targets Gravity Plate Rack pulls double duty, offering shooters not only a potent training tool, but also an excellent source of entertainment that makes time spent plinking on the range all the more enjoyable.

Featuring five 5" round targets and one large rectangular reset target, the Gravity Plate Rack almost eliminates the need to go downrange to replace targets—one of the big drawbacks of paper targets—allowing for longer range sessions with more shooting and fewer interruptions. When struck, the five round targets swing up and out of sight, giving immediate confirmation of either a hit or a miss. When a successful shot is then made on the reset paddle on the far right side of the rig, gravity lowers the 5" targets back into view, ready to be shot again. After a day at the range, all that’s needed to have a like-new set of targets is a fresh coat of paint.

The American-made Gravity Plate Rack stands 52" tall, 73" inches wide and 31" deep, and weighs 93 lbs. Like the rest of Salute’s catalog (with the exception of its .22 Rimfire series), all six of the rack’s targets are made of AR500 armor plate steel, which means they can shrug-off an exceptional amount of hard use without the need for replacement or repair. The Gravity Plate Rack is also designed to deflect fired bullet fragments away from the shooter, greatly reducing the potential for an accident.
