Shooting Tree

Shooting Tree

This was probably the most intense. Head to head competition.

We also did one handed drills with both sides. Weak hand draws, clearing, loading, simulated malfunctions. Some guys had real malfunctions. It was intense.

Manu, what distance do you shoot from and what diameter would you estimate the targets to be?

I forgot. Usually 25 yds for saftey reasons, but depends on the caliber you plan on using. I think the targets are around 5-6 in., atleast 1/4" but it also depends on caliber and competition. my buddy used to have one we would put at 200yds with .308's

Thanks! This'll be a good project when I get home for more than 2 days.

Reaper is right. about 6" in diameter and 1/4" thick. We shot from 10 or 15 yards. The bullets are deflected to the sides by the motion of the swing.
