    I wouldn’t mind trying them as I’m in the wettest city in Canada...
    But I’m on the other coast and the freight would kill me.
    Looks better than plain cardboard though.

    Is the coating absorbed completely through the target? How about a garden hose video with one full of holes?

    Yep - that happens, hence the name "water resistant".

    These targets will last a lot longer in the wet than a regular one, preventing the need for plastic bags - but they won't last forever. I left these two targets up overnight and the coated one was still attached to the sticks the next day and accepting patches.

    The edges, as questioned above, are open and I assume over a good amount of time, would absorb water. (I haven't been able to replicate a rainstorm for a full day)

    That's why we call them "Water resistant" not "water proof."

    Very likely, by the time the edges absorb enough water to make the targets fall apart from the inside, you'd already have replaced them as the target would have enough holes and patches on them to prevent decent scoring anymore.

    I don't think my neighbors will be fond of me shooting holes in them in the backyard; but I'll see what can be done to get some pics / video of a target with holes when wet. It's raining today here and it's also practice day at the range for me (Oh joy!) so maybe I'll get a decent test of the targets live fire tonight. Truth be told, every time you shoot the target during a match, you're going to seal the holes with patches shortly after.




    Everyone Note: This is a advertising post in the Freedom Ventures forum about water resistant targets we sell, so I've deleted all the posts about whatever else you can try / do that has nothing to do with the targets we sell.
