How a FireCap Target works:-

A proprietary toy gun, plastic ring cap is sandwiched between a steel target plate and a circle of  stainless steel firing pins arranged within the FireCap target assembly.    A strong magnet within the hub of the FireCap target holds the target plate in position ready for shooting.  A direct strike on the target plate causes the simultaneous detonation of the shock-sensitive compound in the cavities of the ring cap resulting in a loud bang accompanied by a flash, smoke and ejection of the target plate.  A stainless steel shroud facilitates easy location of the target plate and also serves to help propagate the detonation of the multiple cap cavities even when the strike is off-centre.

A pellet strike within the inner black target band with pellet energy of 2-3 ft-lbs  is usually sufficient to cause detonation of most, if not all, the cap cavities.   A strike on the perimeter may sometimes result in a partial rather than full detonation allowing the ring cap to be used a second time.  Replaceable easy-peel target stickers identify the exact point of the pellet impact. High quality materials have been used throughout the construction to resist corrosion and impact damage.
