Rumor has it that the Texas Star Target concept was originally conceived by Terry Ashton of San Angelo, Texas in the late 1990's. The Texas Star Shooting Target has gained popularity in recent years. The Star Target is now standard equipment in many USPSA and 3-Gun matches. The system is designed with a central bearing that provides rotation and allows the direction of the hub to change as the plates are shot off the ends of the arms. The combination of movement and change in direction make this reactive target an excellent tool for advanced pistol courses and firearms training drills. Challenge Targets steel Texas Star utilizes the concepts of the original design but improves the durability, reliability and portability with multiple proprietary features.
