The designs are free to download, so anyone with a 3D printer could print one, then it's just a case of getting a couple of springs, some nuts and bolts and a small length of 4mm steel bar.

All the source files are here : http://bsamson.github.io/WFTF-Target-Checker/


Alternatively, I am making some, but they're not fast to make and there are lots of people who want one.

When I have some in stock, I'm giving priority to Official WFTF Marshals first, so I'll put a post up on the WFTF Marshals Facebook group

A fellow shooter was looking at one the other day, and decided to 'test' it on his forehead. He survived with only a small red spot on the forehead. We wondered what would have happened had he taken a <12fpe pellet at 50m/55yds? Don't think he would have been brave enough though

Don't say I have to start putting health warnings on them

I learned quite a lot about collision impact force while I was developing the tester.. it has the equivalent impact force of a .177 pellet travelling at about 500 fps, but the damage a pellet would do to soft tissue is going to be much worse ( just saying, so you're not tempted to try the test with a pellet ).

The tester puts out about 0.08 FPE of Kinetic energy, but it's not KE that knocks a target over, it's momentum.

We wont be telling him any of that, lets just see what he does after a few beers
I suspected there was more to this science than just the 'forehead' test
Maybe a disclaimer would not be the worse idea in the world.
