PVC target holder

Post by msredneck on Sat May 02, 2009 7:58 pm

This is a great idea for a "cheap" target stand...I used heavier 1 1/2 inch PVC

The number of pieces of pipe is correct....the lengths to cut are off...If you draw it out on a piece of paper I'm sure you can figure it out.

Good target stands...If you don't glue it...you can replace a piece of pvc should you shoot it to pieces...I use stretch chords with eye hooks between the arms and use binder clips to hold cardboard...then put "dirty bird" targets on them.

Not gluing the stand together also allows you to pull it apart and put it in the back of the truck for easy transport.

Making a few of these is no biggie....Takes about 1 hr to make one.

I have a pretty place....the shooters area is not all that big...My shooting bench is nice...4x4 legs in the ground...not going any where....150 yrd shots from bench...bench is in the shade. It's just an hay field.

Put some of these up with cardboard 10 15 25 yards.

One of these days I'm gonna get some poppers and put them all around in a few hiding places...paint some shoot/no shoot paint on them...Think I can have some "go seek" drills

Would like to do a "smoke and hope setup with some plates etc etc...One day...when I quit spending all my money on guns and reloading supplies...

Maybe I'll swing by out there today and make a pic and post it

I'm sure the grass needs mowing

Heck sounds nice to me...My range doesnt even have hay on it yet. I do have a nice plate rack though.

G.O.D., You need to go to the outdoors section and share your new PVC contraption.

I guess PVC is almost as versitile as duct tape. I am going to make some stands with it now.

G.O.D. WTF? I guess you just appointed your self in charge of building all the target stands? I'm humpin' this pony, you just hold the tail! Check with me before taking on any more projects please. If you build the target stands we'll have to rent a 18 wheeler to hual both of them. (1725 lbs. apiece is a little much) BTW you do know we were talkin' 'bout polyvinylchloride right. Not sch. 100 steel drill stem.

I was talking about making some targets for us to use not to sell or jack your deal. BTW how many do we need? which kind do you prefer?

I can do that. He has called me an overbuilder and if I have my way, you could drive a Sherman Tank over something I build and it would survive. I just learned to make things last.

That stand plan from Magnolia RPC is OK, but it's better to make it out of 2" PVC. If you make it from 1.5", you have to whittle down the 1x2's to fit into the pipe. If you make it from 2", standard 2x2's will fit into the pipe with very little slack but no whittling required.

Just a friendly FYI.

I made the one off of boxotruth.com, and it used the 1 1/2" PVC, but made a "U" shape out of the back half for stability. They also call for you to use square wood dowels or skinnied down 1x2's for the vertical posts, so that if you stink it up and shoot the post, you don't ruin the PVC. Mine has worked great!

Here are a couple of pics of the target stands I just built. There were 4, but somebody stopped by my house and asked what I was building and they just had to have one. I sold them one. I will just go get materials and build another later. enjoy.

Nice looking stands, and simple too. I will be building a few myself.

You did not sell it! I think it was stolen by envious neighbor as a form of retaliation for benches being stolen!

I use pieces of scrap angle iron, flat iron, and square tubing and use square tomato sticks to staple the targets to. Similar to the ones G1down made.
