U.S. PATENT #10,119,795

Revolutionary: involving or causing a complete or dramatic change, radically new or innovative; outside or beyond established procedure, principles.

The Falling Tree is nothing short of revolutionary, and we are excited to be releasing it for 2017! This target starts out like a Dueling Tree, but with a major twist. We started with our standard 20 inch diameter round base as the foundation, which we utilize on almost all of our systems. The front shield/upright is angled forward to dispel fragmentation and bullet energy towards the ground, and it protects the track in the rear from bullet impacts. On the back of the system we utilize a track that is CNC cut on a 360 degree laser that forms the pathway for the single paddle. The paddle not only swings left to right, but with each successful hit it drops one level of the track as well.

The 3/8” AR500 (pistol version) or AR550 (Rifle version) paddle is 6 inches in diameter and is inserted at the top of the track. There is a simple opening to insert the paddle, no tools are required to install or remove and the design of the track keeps the paddle from “jumping” out. Every successful hit rotates the paddle to the opposing side, and drops to the next level. There are eight (8) drops in total, creating a very dynamic target for everyone from the backyard shooter to the competitive marksman. The entire target stands approximately six (6) feet tall. This target is about 90 pounds assembled, including the base and the paddle. The vertical upright is easily managed by a single person, of course two people are recommended for setup for ease of installation.

The Falling Tree is offered in two versions, one for Pistol Only, and the other for Rifle AND Pistol. It is important to note that on the Pistol version, the verticle upright is made from a mild steel angle. Standard Pistol rounds will not damage this mild steel angle, however impacts from rifles WILL cause damage. If you are looking to use .223/5.56 NATO or .300 Blackout, you must purchase the Rifle Rated version. On the Rifle Falling Tree the vertical upright/shield is made from 1/4" AR500 steel to stand up to stray rifle impacts. Of course if you purchase the Rifle Falling Tree, you can still use pistols as well. The weight of the two versions is almost identical, and installation is exactly the same.

Utilizing the 360 degree CNC laser has allowed us to create a truly unique system that is predictable and reliable. We also have created a very streamlined process for fabrication, which equates to a very affordable target that is perfect for everyone’s range. We believe in radically changing the steel target industry and becoming the new standard for steel targets and systems. With every new target, every new revolutionary design, we move one step further to achieving that goal. The Falling Tree is just one more way we are setting ourselves apart from the rest.

Simple design and a blast to shoot. Another great product that looks like it will last forever.

Excellent target system when it comes to the single tree. Put about 300 pistol rounds and 200 .223 rounds to it upon opening the package and held up phenomenally. Paddle movement is smooth and easy to track upon impact. The tree itself seems as if it will last a lifetime if the system is properly used. Overall very satisfied with this investment. Currently shopping for additional targets to add to the collection!

After much research on dueling trees and falling trees, I decided to give the TA Targets falling tree a try. It did not disappoint. Very well designed and it operates flawlessly. We bought two, so we can compete head to head on the range and everyone loves the competition and the thrill of moving the paddles until they hit the ground. Thanks for making such outstanding products!!

Great quality target. Purchased as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it. I also got an additional paddle that makes it even more fun; we added it about half-way down, flipped to the opposite direction and it makes this even more challenging. The design is great and the quality steel and manufacturing is outstanding.

Great to change things up

The falling tree works amazing, is tons of fun to shoot and has held up well so far. Paired with a shot timer it makes for a fun change up from the normal drills.

Fun and Challenging

This is a very fun challenging target. The design is great. I’ve used it to race and also as a set up to include in various drills. It’s nice because it’s always changing direction and height.

Premium Quality Product!

I've only had time to shoot the falling tree once so far but the overall quality of the product is excellent. The fit and finish is high quality. This product is produced and assembled with a great attention to detail. Detail that I appreciate. I've already placed my second order for some A-DAP targets!

The falling tree is a must have for any range. It's made from the highest quality steel and is durable enough for many thousands of rounds. The motion of the falling plate really demands you manage recoil and stay on your sights. It functions both as a stand alone drill or can easily be incorporated into other drills to work those rapid target transitions. Since the plate spins and falls it will really push your shooting to a higher level. Buy one and you absolutely will not regret it!!!
