Angry Dodgy targets

I'm more than pretty confident that a Gamo target WILL NOT stand up to 30ft/lb having tried them extensively at that power with my FAC Rapid.
Linkages have bent after only a few shots, faceplate strikes result in the target falling randomly (hits) and the whole target becomes unreliable and compromised due to the sheer energy hitting it.
What is worse is that a high energy faceplate strike can and does sometimes cause the target to fail with a consecutive 12ft/lb direct hit!

Hopefully all 150 targets have been highly modified, strengthened and tuned in order to make them reliable to both FAC and 12ft/lb hits. If not its a joke and has made a mockery of the competition, what little kudos is left of the WFTF will disappear!
He who never made a mistake never learned!
He who never missed never shot!
