I have five done now, I'm going to Lowes's this week to get enough for five more. They're pretty good as far as wind resistance, but in high wind, a couple sandbags on the base might be good.

you are slow. I have been making these for 15 years now. We used them at the gun range and if you have somebody that has a lot of old 2x4 get them to use.

very practical. I don't see your building permit and the Enviromental Impact report attached....

here are sites to print your own targets.

Congratulations on the birthday present. I wish my first gun were as cool as yours. Mine was a bolt action Daisy .22 rifle. It was a real piece of junk and I think my parents got it for me just to shut me up about getting a gun. If my son shows the same kind of interest in something as you have shown in guns, I will make it my mission to get him a very nice surprise like your father did.

I never claimed to be a pioneer in the shitty lumber target stand field, but I posted the idea here for the benefit of my fellow shooters and you didn't SO YOU ARE SLOW!!!! Hah. Take that.

samD!!!!

I need help. Reaper said ask you, you weren't here when I needed you (I'm so disappointed), so I asked Marvin. He still hasn't come from the heavens to answer me, so here it goes to you? I have a video that is maybe 1 1/2 min long I shot today of me demonstrating a shooting drill and I can't get it to upload. I just waited over half an hour and it was still doing the stupid spinning circle thing. These pages load fairly quickly so I don't think it's the connection speed, but I don't know. Any ideas?

What format is it in?

Check the listing under videos to make sure it is acceptable to the video Gods...

Well I lied.

I guess I suck. Serially, I thought there was one there. Check with Reaper
he does a lot of porn movies and stuff.

Why not just change the format? here is a free program that will allow you to change at http://www.avs4you.com that will allow you to go from one format to another. I suspect avi or wmv would be better.

definitely hot, but not too bad. Out here it stays between 5 and 15 degrees cooler than Tucson or Phoenix
