What are your target shields made of?

All our target shields, tablet shades too, are made from 4mm coroplast, or corrugated plastic sheets. 

How do I assemble my shield/shade?

Our Target Shields and Tablet Shades do ship flat and will need to be assembled, but it is just a couple of steps, and very easy!  You can download the assembly instructions below:

Do the tablet shades come with handles?

All our tablet shades come with handles and a set of velcro holders to affix your tablet to the shade.  You can also order spares!

Will the target shields really save my match time?

You bet!  We've even done our own little experiment to show you just how much time our target shields could save your match on a rainy day!



How long will my target shield or tablet shade last?

On the target shields, provided that they correctly assembled (and taken down for storage), you can expect several years of matches out of each shield.  The most critical parts of the shield to pay attention to are the small tabs that attach the sides to the top and the sides themselves.  Provided these are all in good shape, it is completely possible to easily get 4,000+ rounds of usage out of each shield.  The patches will help cover the large holes in the 0 / A zones so as to keep rain out and you can keep on shooting with dry targets!  To date, the target shields used at the 2018 IDPA National match, the 2019 IDPA PCC National match and the 2019 IPDA World match (pistol) have had the most recorded rounds fired on them, with all over 3,000 and some over 4,000 rounds.  All of the shields are still in excellent condition and are ready for more national matches in the future.  

With the tablet shades, any product that is made of plastic and bent repeatedly will eventually fail.  If assembled once and kept assembled, the tablet shades are likely to last indefinitely provided no other damage occurs.  If they are assembled, and then unassembled and flattened out with each match, we expect the shades to last for a few years of matches.  This will end up being about the lifetime of any of the low-cost tablets on the market today as well.
