    Built a couple new target stands. Made out of 1" PVC. They are about 6' tall and about 2' wide. If anybody wants the cut list just let me know. Total cost around $25.00.

    I wonder if the "legs" were capped and filled with sand, would it help stability on a breezy day? Just a thought.

    I don't have these capped yet. These are able to be broken down. I did not glue the lower uprights to the upper frame so that I can take it apart. The range where we shoot has cinder blocks that I set on the feet. Works great.

    A couple of large sock filled with sand would work.

    very nice. I made some out of pvc but just the bottom so I could put wood sticks in and staple the cardboard to it. works good but yours is really nice.

    Built this exact stand and got to test it this past weekend. Held up great to my .40 until I was a little to low and blew out half the pvc on the bottom support.

    I made these targets from scrap wood. They held up well.
    I set up two of the silhouettes staggered at different distances for practice.
    I like the bowling pin target except you have to allow a few seconds for it to stop swinging when it's hit by a large caliber round. I'm going to try using a bungee with it next.

    Me too! These are the last two I made. The PVC is a great idea!
