Angry Hornet vs S&W .500

Are We Crazy?

Quite possibly. Angry Hornet is headquartered in West Michigan, and this week the Lake Shore has had some very low temps. On Wednesday, February 10, 2016, a few of us decided to get together to test out some new steel shooting products for A few new products we tested included AR500 Steel Knock-over targets, a new tactical IDPA steel target with zero zones to encourage tighter shot groups, a new adjustable target stand, and by customer request, neoprene straps for hanging Angry Hornet steel target gongs. These will all be coming to very soon, so follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed, and to get the best deals on steel from Angry Hornet.

Strong NW winds, temps at 17 degrees, with a 4 degree real feel, made for an icy gun range shootout. It definitely put a new meaning to cold hard steel. We tested out a few newly purchased firearms, including a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 .40,  some every day carry handguns including a Glock 17 9mm, Sig Sauer P-938 SAS 9mm, a couple various .45’s, and a solid Smith & Wesson .500. Wow did that pack a punch and heat things up a bit. All in all, we put a few hundred rounds of 9mm, .40, .45ACP, and .500 S&W Magnum 330 Grain ammo down range, in a very short and frosty time frame. We used Angry Hornet 3/8″ AR500 Steel Targets for our shootout, from about 8-10 yards. We hung our favorite IDPA Torso Target, and a variety of Angry Hornet 2 Hole & 3 Hole steel target gongs. Our new product testing went well, and our AR500 3/8″ steel plates performed incredibly with the torture testing from 8 yards!
