A person selling gun range targets modeled after slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin says that their “main motivation was to make money off the controversy.”
WKMG’s Mike DeForest reported on Friday that the unidentified seller told him that the targets “sold out in 2 days.”
“The response is overwhelming,” the seller said.
While the item appears to have been removed from GunBroker.com, a cached version of the page was still available at the time of publication.
Photos of the item, which was titled “10 Pack Trayvon Martin Targets,” showed crosshairs over a hoodie similar to the one Trayvon Martin was wearing when he was shot by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February. The figure has a bag of Skittle in his pocket and is holding what appears to be a can of iced tea, similar to what Martin had purchased before being gunned down. The pack of 10 targets was being sold for $8.

No I think it is worthy of it's own thread as opposed to becoming part of the mix in that 300+ response thread, but thanks.
Bet most people are just mad they didn't think of it first.

This is GENIUS!
In bad situations, you will always revert back to your training. And when you are training to DEFEND yourself from your typical THUG as this target reflects, you have a better chance of survival.
Awesome targets here!
