Getting ready to join an outdoor range, I ordered some steel plates. However, I also want to shoot paper targets or Cardboard IPSC Targets, too.
I looked into target stands but they were $50 and you still had to use wooden slats to mount the targets. I saw a stand that didn't need to use wood but they were $140 without shipping.
I did a search and found the following link from www.accurateshooter.com:
I went to Home Depot and bought an 8 foot 1.5" PVC pipe and had them cut the pipe into 8 pieces that were 15" long. I connected them using 4 90 degree elbows and 2 Tees. I found an 8 foot 1/2"x1 1/2" slat that I had cut in half. I set it up in the wind today and it didn't move. Additionally, I did not use glue since I want to be able to disassemble this. If any component gets damaged from shooting, I can replace the part.
Total cost : $12.
