The target stand is a folding stand that uses
a 2”X4” for an upright. The more popular
height to hold the target is about 60” to practice center mass hits. Most cut the 8’ 2”X 4” in ½ which will hold
the target at 56”, close enough. And you
then have a back up post. The stand is
powder coated for a nice finish. But
with the target being held at a 20% angle for splatter control the finish will
be damaged on the front legs. To hang the target on the stand insert the
carriage bolt into the target. On the
back side of the target install one washer then the spring and then the second
washer. Now put the bolt though the hole
on the target holder and install the wing nut, ready to go! We use a carriage bolt to hold the target
because they are cheap and you can get them at any hardware store. With this
system you can use both sides of the target.
The target (not included) you should use is AR500 which will hold up to
the most popular calibers. With a pistol
you can shoot the target safely at 7 yards, with the 20% angle. With center fire rifle you should shoot the
target from 100 yards. 5.56, 7.62x39 and
.308 are the most popular calibers that people shoot the steel with. And the damage at 100yrds should be no more
then a little pin prick. If you have a
need for more speed and use a cartridge with more velocity then the one above,
you will have to pull the target further back.
The target stand has holes to stake it down, but you not have to use
them unless you have a large target.
Then you only need to stake down the back two holes.
After a lot of searching on the internet and at the local gun
I had seen on the internet this small company that is sort of near my
Dan started this company because he was tired of the poor quality
After talking Dan's ear off, I purchased a folding stand that you buy
Now it is off to my favorite shooting spot to try out this new
Well, after about 400 rounds with my AR-15 and the stand set at 100
As far as I am concerned, this is the stand to purchase if you want
