I am very fortunate to have a shooting range
right outside my back door, but most shooters do not enjoy such
luxury. It was once that way for me also. I would have to pack
up the guns, ammo, holsters, fried baloney sandwiches, and
whatever else I needed to head off to a shooting range, or
gravel pit, or just back in the woods. Once there, setting
up a target usually meant a cardboard box with a rock in it.
Even if you shoot at an established range, there usually are not
enough target stands to go around, and you are back to the
rock-in-a-box target. I once had a target stand that I made out
of PVC pipe, and it worked pretty well, but was still bulky and
Here we have the Model 200 target stand from
Target Shooting, Inc. Like everything that they make, the Model
200 is overbuilt. It is made from steel and aluminum, and it
folds flat for transport. This can be better seen in the video
than I can describe it, but no tools are needed, and just
tightening one knob sets the target upright, no matter how steep
or uneven the terrain.
All components of the Model 200 are
replaceable, just in case someone shoots your target stand. I
know that you would never do such a thing, but what about your
shooting buddy? Anyway, the plate that holds the target can take
a few hits, but when you shoot it to pieces, you can replace
that as well. What I really like is that the Model 200 will
support a tall target, getting the stand well out of the line of
fire. I like the corrugated plastic lightweight material that is
used for yard signs and such, but stiff cardboard, sheet metal,
or thin plywood will work perfectly in the Model 200.
It folds down flat, and takes up very little
room, so it can be left behind the seat of the pickup or in the
trunk of the car, always ready to go shooting.
The Model 200 is a good investment in your
shooting, and is a quality piece of American-made equipment.
