What happens if I drop one?
Tests carried out have demonstrated that it is extremely unlikely for a Firebird to detonate if dropped. However, Firebird Targets are pyrotechnic devices and should be treated with care and caution.
Why do some targets have a larger detonation than others?
Firebird is an accuracy tool. The closer the bullet is to the center of the target, the faster and louder the reaction will be.
Why didn't the target detonate?
For the Firebird to function, the bullet must first penetrate through the front face of the target. The target must be adhered to a solid flat surface such as plywood, etc.
Reasons for Firebird not to function include:
- Shooting the target through the rear surface first
- Target has been improperly stored (damp)
- Target has not been stuck against a smooth solid surface
- Bullet has insufficient energy to create detonation
- Target has not been hit by bullet!
Can I re-use a Firebird that has not been detonated?
Usually. Just make sure the adhesive sticker (on the back of each Firebird) is clean and does not have debris that could interfere with the adherence of the target.
Can I shoot Firebird in a Clay Pigeon from any angle???
For the Firebird to function, the shot must first penetrate through the front face of the target.
