I have some concrete form stakes that I can bring. 3/8" thick and 1 1/2" wide and 36" long. I will have them with me on Thursday and if they can be used, have at it.

With the way my targets and frames looked after any of the shoots, I wouldn't buy one. Seems like there's always someone who either doesn't know or doesn't care that they're not all community targets. And those people are the ones who really need practice. Example, I had a frame set out at 200 yards, my target is a 10 inch steel circle, my frame is 4 feet wide, frame looked like Swiss cheese.

That's pretty slick. I wonder how long the cord is to keep it away from the target stand.

catchy title or mispelling?

How much fire hose do you want? are you ever near Garden Grove or Huntington beach?

I can ship if needed...

I was thinking maybe dig light below a berm shining upwards towards an aluminum reflector facing the firing line. This would avoid the light getting hit and the reflector is sacrificial.
Could use aluminum foil for the reflector flash off to the side a bit.

Mount the sensor low also, its just a pony clamp with sensor attached.
At 1,000 yards wind drift could be several feet so mount it well off to the side or even downhill a bit.
Lotsa variations in weaponry there.

I have one and it's cord is about 8ft long. I'll be trying it out at the end of this month. The sensor is quite sensitive and shouldn't require clamping directly to the target but the target stand itself.

You might want to read the reviews on the Amazon link. One reported his didn't work at all and another said the sensor was too sensitive; flying dirt or debris would set it off. They may have been defective ones and not representative of the product as a whole.

Since this is on a different subject, a different post: While attending the Zombie shoot in the past, I have seen some rifle stands made by members. I have always put my rifles and handguns on my table, even with one grandson with me. It's cluttered. This time, my son and 4 of my grandsons will be with me and that just won't work.

I would appreciate it if those who made the most basic ones would please advise me how it's done. I'm going to use douglas fir or pine, which ever is the least expensive 'cause I'm not looking for anything fancy, just something that will hold up to 8 long guns. I've looked on the 'net, but the one I liked, only had a pic and I can't work from that.

Please keep in mind I said basic and I need to add simple too. I'm not mechanically inclined, but I know I can cut/nail/screw some wood together. I have a Skil circular saw (1960s era and still works great), a jig saw, hand saw and hole saw (for the recesses of course). Any help would be appreciated. I'd like to say I'd allow you to shoot my BMG .50cal for your help, but I'd have to have one for that. So as to not tie up the thread, please pm me and thanks in advance.
