Plans for steel targets?
Anyone have any plans or good pictures for a steel shooting stand?
I'm looking to build some targets and would like to have some cool reactive targets. I have access to all kinds or scrap steel and a welder, but I need some ideas/plans to get started.
I'm interested in anything reactive, but would love to see some plans for targets that can be reset from a distance. I like the ones where you knock down the plates and hit another and they all reset.
Popers or anything spring loaded is good too. What about a dueling tree?
I'm just spouting out ideas here.
Let me see what you've got.
You may want to copy MGM Targets. As for dimensions, you may want to use an IDP or IPSC target but I would not know about thickness.
Not just any scrap steel can be used safely for targets . I would do a bit more research before i built anything out of what was laying around . Unless of course your only going to use .22 rimfire if that is the case well go for it . If not you need to accertain what alloy you have , and is it hard enough , or can it be made so thro tempering to resist dimpling when hit with the rounds you want to plink at it . if it starts dimpling you WILL have issues with large fragments comeing back at you in the 80s we waisted quite a bit of $$ on pepper poppers at a range i was associated with for just this issue .
