    Default home brew target

    So I was going to save up and buy a big field target, but when deerchser got rid of a bunch of carpet, I got to thinking I'd build my own. Started looking around, and decided to just buy a replacement target bag; Morrel field cover, $20. Wanted a hard center for the bag, foam insulation; $9. Free carpet, nice. Bunch of old plywood and 2x4s plus $30 in hardware makes a nice outdoor storage cabinet.

    The target is basically 3 layers of foam board wrapped in carpet, covered in a black garbage bag, and then stuffed into a target bag.

    How many of the neighbor's pets did you hit?

    You did a good job on your "target cabinet" though.
