Or someone out shooting with you (my sister in law) hit the 1/4" rod leg then it was worthless.
    MISS THE KNOWING THAT YOU HIT THE TARGET! I never miss, hush your mouth. LOL. Just kidding. No I always figure it out.

    As far as mounting targets. I bought these plastic stakes at Menards that are used for plastic snow fencing or deer fencing. They have a metal spike you push in the ground with your foot and the use those big Buttefly paper clips to hold them on.

    You never said where you plan on shooting. Do you have an outdoor range or access to property to shoot on?

    Thanks budroe. Any insight that might help? I would love to sit here and brag about how much I know or how good of a shot I am but there's no reason to lie lol. I grew up with 1 gun in the house. A sawed off shotgun for home defense and snakes thats all. I bought my first rifle in high school a weatherby .270 and went deer hunting a fee times. Years later and 3 kids later i got back into it. My 5 year old son has a marlin 60 my 8 year old daughter has a cricket .22 my wife has a howe .243 i have a windham weaponry ar15 and a stevens 12 ga. I have found that there aren't any good yet reasonable targets on the market. The cheap ones I mentioned earlier are too weak I'm still working on my target practice o paper I'm always having to stop and walk up there. So me and my dad are working on some ideas hoping we can change the issue. Any information from anyone will be very helpful.

    How does everyone feel about mild steel vs ar500 for .22lr. I've shot our prototype over 100 times and it's 3/16" mild steel. No divets or pitting. Safety is our #1 concern because I have my kids out there practicing as well. We haven't had any close calls and I think we have all our angles covered. We are currently working on our finished target after a few modifications.

    Welcome from Illinois....

    The only thing I dislike about my targets (and it seems like all of them), they seemingly move when I shoot. I know I line up my targets well. I know I am right on the bullseye. I know my grip is good. I know everything is perfect......but them, just before the bullet meets the paper....the bullseye move on me.
    larry and gunzilla like this.

    Thanks ziggidy. Does your holder only hold top or top and bottom or 4 corners? Is the paper moving or the stand?
