    Default Lifetime Target!

    Needed a new target!

    So I spent a little time and used all the scrap wood, shingles, staples, house wrap, clothing, and chicken wire and this is what I came up with.

    This what the inside looks like and I didn't take a pic but it is very packed and has a lot of clothes in it now.

    Keep the inside dry. Had bags stuffed with old clothes and worked great until they got wet. Still stopped the arrow, but pulling the arrow would make a Pope cuss.

    Just keep your shots in the lower quarter of the target, please.

    Got a idea of how much you have in it? Why I ask is ThirdHand (AT) has plans for making one a target stop using his target "skins." New lumber and target skins, the whole thing, I think $75.00. A test was done by 2 or 3 well known top shooters. The target skin went 16,000 shots. Replace the skin and go again..... No overly huge, it can be mounted on a car mechanic's floor creeper or the such to move around. It was shown inside on a concrete floor. Outside, big wheels would be needed. Cat tracks if in my yard
