The Flasher Gong cannot tell a lie. The stand and brackets are made of steel, while the gong is 3/8in Rifle Rated AR500 Steel. The Flasher Gong has been designed to flash the bright marker upon a sure shot and then reset automatically for the next. Because when you're 400 yards away, there's no reason to get up. The Flasher Gong comes with a 6in, 8in, 10in, or 12in paddle (selected above). This flasher system easily fits into any vehicle, and is quick to set-up and quick to break-down. Patent Pending. Ships unpainted.
