Cabela’s Slashes Prices on Rimfire Reactive Target Systems

Those of us engaged in the “relentless pursuit of accuracy” need to take a break now and then, and just enjoy a plinking session with the kids or grand-kids. We need to remember why most of us got involved with shooting as kids — and that was to have fun. Here are two target systems ideal for fun rimfire shooting sessions. With the dueling tree, you can shoot either solo, or with a buddy. The spinner targets can be placed pretty close for .22 LR pistols, and further out for a rifle-shooting challenge.

“You can be childlike without being childish. A child always wants to have fun. Ask yourself, ‘Am I having fun?'” — Christopher Meloni

“Fun. It‘s this crazy thing where people smile and laugh and are generally pleased. I could have sworn I saw you smile at least once.” — Aggy Bird

Both these target systems are now on sale in Cabela’s online Bargain Cave. They are deeply discounted, so you may want to grab one or both items before the price goes back up. The Triple Spinner Target System is just $9.99. You’ll pay nearly that much for a single movie ticket these days, and the spinner target will provide many more hours of entertainment.

Triple Spinner .22 Target System, Item: IK-230137

Cabela’s Do-All Triple Spinner .22 Target System
Here’s a fun, reactive target for both rimfire pistols and rifles. This Triple Spinner .22 Target System is now offered for just $9.99, marked down from $24.99. Made specifically for soft-nosed .22 pistol and rifle shooters, the system uses a hands-free spinning target. The force of the bullet spins the target over the attachment bar and back into the set position. Four stabilizing legs provide a secure base. Note: This is a limited-time, online-only price in Cabela’s Bargain Cave.

.22/.17 Dueling Tree, Item No: IK-226450

Cabela’s Bargain Cave Dueling Tree
For a limited time, Cabela’s is offering the Do-All Outdoors .22/.17 Steel Dueling Tree for just $39.99. That’s a 42% savings off the regular $69.99 price. This is a classic dueling tree, but with compact plates for use with .22-caliber and .17-caliber rimfire guns. The eight targets swing right-to-left or left-to-right and are automatically snapped back into position at impact by a spring-loaded mechanism. Spring tension is adjustable to ensure proper reset each time, whether you’re shooting .22 Shorts or .17 HMR. The 8mm steel targets are positioned with a forward angle that directs most bullet splash into the ground, but you still still always wear eye protection! Online Only Price – limited time offer. Price may vary in stores and catalogs.

SAFETY WARNING: .22/.17 Caliber targets are rated for Shorts, Longs, and Long Rifles at a minimum distance of 30 yards. Magnum and .17’s at a minimum distance of 100 yards. Use ammo with soft-nose lead bullets only.

Learn about Little-Known Benefits for NRA Members

We know that many of our readers are NRA members. This article focuses on little-known NRA benefits. You may be aware that the NRA provides $2500.00 in firearms coverage to NRA members who activate their insurance. But did you know that the NRA offers its members discounts on car rentals, discounts on hotel/motel stays, and even discounts on moving expenses? The NRA even has health-related programs that can save you money on hearing aids and prescription drugs.

To learn about all these special benefits for NRA members, go to NRAmemberservices.org. Once you create an online account, you can activate your NRA firearms insurance, and check out the various special benefits offered to NRA members. You can also change your NRA print magazine selection or subscribe to various NRA newsletters. We do offer one warning though — the NRA is very aggressive when it comes to email marketing. We suggest, if you sign up, don’t list your business email address, or primary email address. Or use a spam filter so you don’t get deluged with messages from the NRA.
