Hostage Reactive Targets




Quinn Steel hostage targets are great in training for realistic hostage scenarios. Hostage targets feature the same heavy duty hinge pin used on our dueling trees. The hostage head swings to either side when shot.


Durability: Quinn Steel Targets are waterjet machined from domestic AR-500 steel plate. Quinn targets are never cut by laser or plasma due to the high heat that weakens AR-500. By waterjet machining our products, we can ensure the material does not rise above room temperature so that our targets have a uniform hardness from center to perimeter. Waterjet machining allows Quinn Steel Targets to achieve the highest possible product durability and sets us apart from our competition.

Material/Plate Thickness: 3/8″ thick AR-500 steel plate is recommended for pistols, carbines and long range shooting. Common thicknesses are 1/4″ (rimfire), 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4″.

Tip: If you are deforming or penetrating 3/8” AR-500 targets, increasing plate thickness does not always solve the problem. You will need to reduce the velocity of your bullet to under 2,000 fps by increasing the distance between you and the target.

Finishing: Quinn Steel Targets offer many finishing options from bare metal to custom powdercoat. Please take into consideration that even the best coatings will not withstand a bullet strike at the point of impact.

Mounting Options: Quinn realistic hostage targets are available in 2 primary mounting configurations:


  • Universal Mount Targets – Designed to work with our universal mounting system. Mounting holes are located on the bottom of the target away from the A,B and C scoring zones. Universal mounts are relatively lightweight and can be attached to a fence post, 2×4 or angle. Angled downward for safety.
  • HD Mounts – No holes or hardware exposed. Easily drops into Quinn HD target stand. Quickly change between targets in seconds. Angled downward for safety.
