Any weight in the bottom of those to keep the wind from turning it over with a target attached?

A friend made a cool metal target this weekend out of welded metal. You shoot it and it spins, or supposed to 'til I got a hold of it and shot the hinge. Actually, it didn't get a chance to spin since the hinge was the first part I shot .

I use something similar and wish I used 2" PVC to hold more weight! I constantly have to weigh down the front legs to keep it from blowing over.

I think a sandbag would also work out good too.

No need to hold it down with sandbags. Just fill the inside of the pipe with sand or concrete. Its a little more convenient. If thatsnot enough, you could possibly alter the design by putting 45 degree elbows on the supports instead of coming off perpendicular to the main assembly. So instead of the base looking like the letter "H" it would look more like a letter "X"
