    Back in the late 90's the club I belong to in Wisconsin used them for a season or two. We didn't have any problem with them. If I remember correctly they had a deposit on the cardboard cases which was reimbursable upon return. This made the targets slightly cheaper than White Flyer at the time, however finding a place to store 22 skids worth of empty target cases made the savings not worth the trouble. All in all unless something has changed in 15 years Lawry makes a decent target. Depending on where you are located, you might want to look into other brands from a cost standpoint. Hope this helps!

    If you want to lose the shooters at your club throw Lawrys. There like bricks.

    White Flyers are worth the extra money.

    yes, apparently you have to actually hit them, not shoot near them, to get a break

    Speaking only for myself, my first choice is White Flyer but a close second would be Lawrys. All others would be a distant third.

    Should you compare targets you will find the white flyer to be a brighter target, worth the upgrade cost, The plus is they are made in the US.

    We use Lawry targets without problems. We have had to prove to shooters there was no difference in Lawrys and White Flyer by mixing them without the member knowing. they throw and break the same, but some have to always ask for the "other one" just to get attention (human nature.

    I have shot thousands of them and honestly have never noticed any difference. At the same time guys shooting alongside me will swear up and down the targets don't break. That's just the nature of our game I guess.

    Very little if any difference b/w WF and Lawry. Lawry no longer has a deposit on their boxes either.

    A would defy any shooter to tell me which one is which when thrown out of a machine, and without being able to see what box they came out of.

    We use them in every shoot we have at St. Thomas. I think we had lots of batches that break better than White Flyers.

    Anyone ever weighed them to check for consistency?

    Of the ten clubs in our league (300+ shooters) 2 clubs use something other than Lawrys. Our club has used them for at least 10 years. We have two GMV traps and they throw them flawlessly. The one club that throws White Flyers has way more broken birds than we do. We also set out birds at 9.5ft and 50yds.

    I think that the paint on the Lawry targets are a brighter orange than the white flyer. White flyers are an orange with white added that dulls the brightness of the orange. As far as difference between the targets, there is none.

    We threw Lawry's for 2 years, shooters complained they did not break, I did not have any problems. We recently switched back to White Flyers and guess what, shooters are saying the White Flyers don't break. Go figure.
