    Ive got a neat little target range in my map(blu spawnarea) and am building it to a proper looking fun-tastic range, but I was wondering, is there any way I could get it so that if you build a sentry in front, the sentry starts shooting the targets? how do I get the sentry to shoot anything? what entities does the sentry try to shoot? only players?

    First of all, I don't know :p
    Now that that's out of the way, if you build a sentrytarget you will render the sentry completely useless as it won't shoot the enemies then, since it's focused on the target. I don't think that will please the engineers :p

    Spawn a Red dispenser behind the target in the line of sight of the SG or make the target see through for the SG and put the dispensers behind it. You can set the dispensers to be invunrable so they will not get destroy and you can also use a simple server side change to give the SG's unlimited ammo.

    Edit you could also set a trigger to make a wall drop down and show the dispensers when a player walks over it or shoots a specific button etc.

    well the shooting range is a sidearea, and your sentry wont see the targets unless you put it right in front of the range. so no problem with agitating engies.

    Ill experiment with invisible dispensers and such.
