    Much like the LTT targets, it has a lot going on so it is very versatile.

    I'm curious as to the thought behind the design of boxes 1-5. Obviously it gives you some different size/shape targets to work with precision shots (definite "hostage" vibe going on). Is there more to it than that?

    Sometimes an instructor would call out a number one through five. It keeps you on your toes and shooting is a thinking person's game. It's brings the cognitive into the physical action. There is still more to it. I own 7 of Viking Tactics DVDs. Makes me want to do another run through of those.

    I keep telling myself that I should order some of these targets. What's the best way to mount them to a cardboard backer. Staples or contact adhesive spray or something else?

    I get the numbers, I meant more the particular shapes. They are reminiscent of a VTAC board, which makes sense, just curious as to the thought behind them. They are unusual and Iím sure Lamb has a good reason for it.

    These, LTT-1 and TLG's P-F targets are gold standard IMHO. Since two of these incorporate B-8's no need to mention those though I have tons of love for them.

    These are the two I regularly carry to the range with me and frequently get comments on both.

    I've taken some classes from a local trainer who uses them and I agree, they are good targets for defensive training because they create some contrast conditions which are similar to what you would encounter in the real world.

    This is a good Test target but not a good training target. For training purposes you need to have the smaller areas you need to hit well defined.
