I hit the Air Rifle target and it did not ignite

In order for the Air Rifle Target to function with an air rifle it must be mounted securely inside the Striker Plate (included in every green pack of Air Rifle Targets).  The Striker Plate should be mounted against a flat, hard, surface.

A Firebird Target will not detonate with Airsoft pellets. The target requires being struck at 500 fps minimum with a hard pellet in order to detonate.
