**New Target Handing Method from JC Steel Targets**

Hey Guys, Wanted to give you guys a look at a new item we are going to release for sale at an introductory price.
It is called our T POST target hanger.
Not to be confused with our T Post bracket which bolts onto the back of targets. Also a great product.
This is our T POST target hanger.
What we wanted to do is this,
We run a big match up here in WA, and we also run some smaller matches in the area. So we have the ability to shoot ALOT!! Which is a good thing, but it also gives us a chance to see what really works in the target industry. We test and test, and put our items through a torture all the time, thousands and thousands of rounds. Not just a couple to say we shot at it! This is just to make sure they can hold up to the abuse we all put them through.

We wanted something very stable, and heavy duty, but light enough to carry into position and simple to set up in minutes.
Also, something important to us, was visually seeing the target move when it is hit. Plus that creates a louder ring. And the aiming point is 2 feet away from the post, and the top bracket, so it is fairly safe as well.
During our tests, we blew many holes all over these things on purpose, and they still held up perfectly.
With the help of some boys here on the ranch, we created, and made a hanger that slides over a medium duty T POST. It slides over the T POST 6 inches!! And then the target just hangs. It is a fully welded product that slips over the T POST. Then the arm, Which is 24 inches long, bolts onto the bracket, with 4 bolts, created a super solid mount. Its not angle iron, its custom bent 3/16 steel, that we have put holes in exact locations to marry everything together perfectly.
We use old medium stiffness conveyer belt to hang targets. Its stiff enough to bring the target back to neutral fairly quickly. And last nearly forever.

Check it out, These are going to be now available on the forum, Send us a PM if you would like some

Retail price is going to be $34.99
Introductory price will be $29.99
This items will also fall under our one time flat rate shipping/handling charge.

It will include the actual T POST Hanger,
all the hardware to mount it together(4--1/2" bolts)
another set of grade 8 hardware for mounting target
a strip of conveyer belt
Will come painted black

Here are some pics for you guys to check out and let me know what you think!! And you can check out all our stuff at JC Steel Targets.
Well I just realized all but one pic is horrible....I will try to get some more
Thanks for all the support

Re: **New Target Handing Method from JC Steel Targets**

The conveyer belts hold up very well.

I have yet to replace a single piece of belt after many of thousands of rounds downrange.

Its a rubber and thread construction, so the bullet will go in and the rubber will essentially self seal the hole. Its hard to tell its even there.
Most of the time, shrapnel is pointed toward the ground since the target is free hanging. So I get very little on the belt itself.

BUT, if you need an extra for some reason, we will send a belt and a extra set of grade 8 hardware for $7.

Re: **New Target Handing Method from JC Steel Targets**

Checking your web=site I did not see the double arm model? Is it available or do you have a date it may become available?

In the group buy last year, I bought the targets below. Can you recommend an economical and effective hanger. Thinking I will need two or three.

PM me please.

Looks like a cool idea! How does the t-post hold up to heavy magnum rounds like 338s?
