Has anybody bought a target from Steel Plinkers before?  I kind of like the look of their quadrant target.  Seems like it would help you ID your misses pretty well.  The amateur tinkerer in me would love to see some kind of remote resettable field target using a servo/solenoid actuated mechanism using an RF remote.  Sound like a weekend project? LOL.

I saw one pictured on the web and thought it was a great idea. It looks like it would be fun to shoot at as well.

Plinkers look cool...self-resetting (counter balanced)...but Spinners are cheaper...and check this out....a "Casey" target...lol..

Went to the metal supply place for some target material.

30 minutes on the band saw and I got some mini field target silhouttes with 1-3/8 max killzones.

The only thick aluminum plate I could find was 4" wide, so the silhouettes are a little smaller than standard targets.
The 2nd  bullpup I made was not posted on the other board, but here's a pic:
