    Three-dimensional targets are a critical part of training for dynamic shooting situations. Lindsey uses Birchwood Casey 3D Torso Targets. These are molded relief targets made of recycled material. They are as light as cardboard, and have enough structural integrity to hold up to a lot of hits. These targets are 21.5' H X 14' W X 4.7' D, and very cost effective.
