Want to setup my own run and gun course.

Any one have any outlines for setup? I have seen steel targets used. How thick? How to avoid ricocettes?

Guidelines to reduce ricochets from steel targets:

-Flat and smooth target faces: no dings, craters, holes, or target faces other than flat
-Impact angle is 90* so the bullet hits a wall rather than launching ramp
-Fast bullets disintegrate, slow ones bounce off intact

Go find some local IPSC or steel matches. You will see lots of ideas worth copying, and every club is always looking for volunteers to help setup the stages every match.

What area do you live in? If you're in So Cal I might be able to help you.

I plan on doing this on my land... I have 800 yrds of dirt... Just need to lay it out and get some serious metal for the targets...
