From the www.rifelsilhouette.com web site:
Anyone that has taken a rifle out hunting can relate to the great feeling one has when the bullet hits its mark. It is the same feeling that a person gets when out plinking with a rifle and attempts a difficult shot and connects. A wonderful feeling of satisfaction. Because of the hunting aspect in the design of the sport, and the difficulty, it is the same feeling obtained while shooting Rifle Silhouette. The targets are not anchored but free-standing. When you make a perfect shot, the target springs off the stand for instant gratification.
