TMc: Inexpensive Outdoor Gun Range Ideas

    I tired of shooting holes in paper targets at the indoor gun range and talked a friend into watching.

    Shooting Steel videos and installing cheap metal targets on his farm. The above photo is not practical. Steel plates in old tires seem best.

    A combat vet buddy emailed that many guys were wounded by ricochet off vehicles and concrete walls. It seems obvious not to stand in the target area but it is a good idea to design for downward movement of fragments. Also obvious is not to use an AK47...maybe max .380 or smaller handguns. Maybe not have a crowd of amateurs with new guns.

    Conclusion: Steel targets do not need replacement or reset but have some problems. So far I invested $20 in scrap steel and roadside trash tires. CVS has First Aid Kits. Good luck.

After you have made the proper selection of targets, it is important to work on the proper position for target shooting in the prone position. I have done extensive research on recoil reaction and have found that ear and eye protection is a must.

Proper attire is at the discretion of the shooter.
