    ann, its ok but i would not use something like this for the DD-27. the targets would shatter, and possibly break the pieces. i am going to just stick to cardboard. but not that bad, 3.5/5

    To be honest with you, I did not get the promised power from that gun. I got like 40 feet, not 80-90.

    some times if you hit it with a really powerful gun at close range thn the targets will break but the pieces dont shatter.

    Pretty Good! You might want to try to beef up the stand a bit, as it might fall over, but overall, 4 out of 5 !
