TARGET
John A. Pollard, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Application March 30, 19-36, Serial No. '71,720r
3 claims. (C1. 27s-105.4)
This invention relates to flying targets and
its general object is to provide a target of that
character primarily designed for trap shooting,
which can be used for a prolonged period of time,
without material damage thereto.
A further object of the invention is to pro
vide a flying target by which the direction or
type of hit made thereon can be determined,
while the target is in flight.
Another object of the invention is to provide

the dome-shaped upper portion includes a flat,
round centrally disposed inserted portion 4, while
the remaining portion thereof is curved toward
the shoulder, as clearly shown in Figure 4.
The curved portion of the body is corrugated 5`
as at 5 in ratchet tooth formation, and the cor
rugations radiate from about the periphery of
the rounded portion 4 and terminate adjacent to
the annular shoulder, as best shown in Figure 3.

Due to the> ratchet tooth formation, the corru- 10`
gations are provided with shoulders 6 which act
as shot receiving surfaces or abutments there
and less effort, than clay targets, as breakage
or damage thereto while being applied or shot
for, and for a purpose which will be later de
scribed. The other part of my target is a con

A still further object of the invention is to
provide a flying target that is simple in con
struction, inexpensive to manufacture and eX

This invention also consists in certain other
features of construction and in the combination
and arrangement of the several parts, to be
hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the ac
site direction from that of the corrugations or
teeth 5, and in the form shown in Figures 1
to 6 inclusive, it will be noted that the ring has
companying drawing and specifically pointed out
in the appended claims.
In describing the invention in detail, refer

forms the subject matter of the present inven
tion.
Figure 2 is a bottom plan view thereof.

One of the pins 9 terminates in an eye, and 30
extending inwardly from the flange above one
of the slots thereof is an eyelet Il to which is
secured one of the ends of a flexible element such
as a chain I2, while the opposite end of the
chain is secured to the eye of the pin, as clear- 35
1y shown in Figure 4.
The form as shown in Figures 7 and 8, is of
the same structure as the other form, with the
exception that the bayonet slots are arranged in
mately on line 4_4 of Figure 1.

Figure 6 is a view illustrating the parts of
my target separated and which condition takes
place when a direct hit is made.
Figure 7 is a side elevation of a slightly modi
fied form; and
Figure 8 is a fragmentary view thereof.
Referring to the drawing in detail, it will be
noted that my target includes separable parts,
one of which provides the body indicated by the
reference numeral l and is shown as being hol
50 low and includes a substantially dome-shaped
upper portion 2, the latter having its lower edge
merging into a shoulder from which extends in
depending relation therefrom an annular flange 3.
The body is preferably formed from sheet steel
55 or other material suitable for the purpose, and
~
the ring, while the pins extend outwardly 'from 40
the flange. -
From the description of the shoulders of the
corrugations or teeth 5, it will be obvious that the
shoulders of the teeth 8 likewise act as shot re
ceiving surfaces or abutments for the shot, and 45
in the use of my target, it is shot -or thrown
from a trap to rotate in a clockwise direction,
as shown by the arrow in Figure 1. The shot
hitting the corrugations 5 on the right hand side
of the body will have a tendency to shock the 50
same and thereby retard the rotation which
will cause the ring to be disengaged from the
body, while the shot hitting the left hand side
will glance olf and therefore will not materially
effect the target or cause the parts to be dis- 55

engaged from each other. However the shot
hitting the teeth 8 on the left side of the ring
will have a tendency to increase its rotation,
and thereby cause the ring to be disengaged
from the body, but the shot hitting the right side
of the ring will glance off and therefore will not
cause separation of the ring and body. A direct
hit will tend to shock the target to such an ex
tent that such will be readily discernible, while
10 lateral hits on the right side of the body and the
left side of the ring will not cause immediate
separation, as the target will travel a slight
distance after such a hit, before the separation
takes place, with the result it will be seen that
15 in many instances it can be readily determined
the type of hit made, while the target is in
ñight.
It is thought from the foregoing description
that the advantages and novel features of the
'
20 invention will be readily apparent.
It is to be understood that changes may be
made in the construction and in the combina
tion and arrangement of the several parts, pro
vided that such changes fall Within the scope
25 of the appended claims.
What I claim is:
1. A flying target comprising a body including
a substantially dome-shaped portion, an annular
fiange depending therefrom, a ring loosely sur
30 rounding the iiange, means for detachably securing the ring with respect to the flange to
allow separation thereof, and ratchet teeth pro
viding shot receiving surfaces on the dome
shaped portion and the ring respectively the
shot receiving surfaces of the ring being dis
posed in an opposed direction from those of the
dome-shaped portion whereby certain hits on ,the
said surfaces Will cause separation of the ring
and body.
2. A flying target comprising a body including
a substantially dome-shaped portion, an annular
iiange depending from the dome-shaped portion,
a ring surrounding the annular flange, pin and 10
slot means for detachably holding the ring with
respect to the flange, flexible means connecting
the ring to the body, ratchet teeth formed on the
dome-shaped portion and ring respectively and
providing inclined shot defiecting surfaces and 15
shot abutting shoulders at the ends of the in
clined deflecting surfaces, and the ratchet teeth
of the ring being disposed in an opposite direc
tion from those of the dome-shaped portion
whereby certain hits thereon will cause separa 20
tion of the body and ring.
3. A ñying target comprising a body, ratchet
teeth providing shot receiving surfaces formed
on the body, a ring surrounding the body, means
for detachably securing the ring to the body to 25
allow separation thereof, ratchet teeth providing
shot receiving surfaces formed on the ring and
arranged with respect to the shot receiving sur
faces of the body whereby certain hits on said
surfaces will cause separation of the ring and 30
body and flexible means connecting the ring and
body together.
