MGM was issued USPSA Target Manufacturer’s License No. MGM-250 in 2004 and has been making these targets ever since to exacting standards. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the target rules and regulations, all target manufacturers have submitted an application and first article samples to the USPSA. After the USPSA inspection and approval of the submitted targets, the newly approved licensee is assigned a license number. Receipt of this license number by the manufacturer signifies that they have agreed to pay the USPSA a fee of $.03 per target at the time the targets are manufactured. This small fee allows the USPSA to continue regular oversight of all targets manufactured, ensuring that each production run meets the quality and dimensional integrity of targets and are consistent throughout the United States.
The decision to enter this segment of the target business was not made without considerable thought. The equipment necessary to manufacture this product costs a chunk of change up front, and the $3.00 per box at the time of manufacture (on 50,000 targets) has another $1,500 tied up. Additionally, MGM has opted to donate another $3.00 to the MGM Junior Program, for every box of targets sold, . Mrs. MGM (i.e. Rhonda) will be working to administer the distribution of these funds, to hopefully maximize the positive effect for the greatest number of Juniors.
If you do your homework, I trust you’ll find these prices to be exceptionally competitive. At this point (with volumes at the current levels), when I say “we don’t make a cent” on each target, I am not using that as a figure of speech. So why do it?
We will have people in our shipping department with or without the cardboard target business. Hopefully their added workload will cost MGM very little.
- The junior program can use the money.
- Any club buying cardboard targets can save some money, and we fully expect prices nationwide to DROP to meet our low price.
- Any club who buys cardboard targets might also someday need steel targets. We hope they’ll think of MGM first.
We do make a little on the tape, and if the volumes go up, we’ll start to make a little on the targets. Our hope is to lower the price in the future, rather than raise it, but if you know us, that shouldn’t be much of a surprise!
Please call us with your zip code and the quantity of targets/tape you are interested in, and we’ll be glad to provide a firm freight quotation. We ship on UPS or FedEx Freight (the trucking company, not the overnight courier), but we’ll be glad to ship it any way you prefer. If you want to save some money by hauling them yourself, let us know when you want to come by either location, and we’ll be waiting for you.
We always appreciate your business. Thanks for thinking of us!!
P.S. Any scores submitted or matches conducted with the use of non-USPSA approved targets will not be considered or accepted by the USPSA. In 2004 the NRA threw out the scores for a MAJOR match in Texas, because it was conducted with “counterfeit” targets, manufactured by a non-NRA approved source. The USPSA has a similar policy .
Don’t forget the tape!
