Pop-Up Targets

Anybody know where I can get an automatic pop-up target system for my range. Alternativly, does anybody know how to build one. I do not have electricity on this land so it would have to be either air operated or 12V. I would rather use batteries and am currently considering car window moters to raise the targets. Anybody have any ideas or suggestions?

Have you tried Action Target?

action target

Thanks for the info KS. I just went there and although they had some neat stuff its going to be just a little bit out of my range (no pun intended). This is a range on my own land strictly for friends and family. Just looking for some way to liven things up a bit.If the window moters will work it would be fairly cheap. and replacement moters easy to find. I could use air but then I would have to find a compressor and put up with listening to it run.

Why does the target have to pop-up/bob?

Why not get a steel target that swings/moves when hit and resets itself. You can use a timer/stopwatch if you want to know the engagement time.

I guess it depends on how much you're willing to spend. An excellent battery powered system (albeit expensive) is the LaRue.
