If using knockdowns with kill zones, Gamo targets take a fair bit of knocking down (IIRC about 4 ft.lbs). Nockovers should be a lot better. TBH putting a course out for pistols using unmodified Gamo targets isn't really on as having a full power pistol will be a very big unfair advantage.

But, just take it along and have a go.
Cheers Adam...I'll have a go at a pistol HFT course and see how I go, but I do agree with you about the targets and it's good that they are designed to be able to drop that bit easier, for pistols which are down a bit on power
