We use something almost identical, except we use steel tubing welded together. Either round or square, it doesn't matter, but ours won't tip or blow over in [b]any[/b] wind. We then stick 1x2's in and staple either cardboard on and tape on our targets or we use the cardboard IDPA sillouetes for competetion.

I use a similar set up when I go to the DNR range. Tip: cut some wire coat hangers up, so you get two U shaped pieces and some extra (toss extra). Put two of the U's upside down over eah leg, like you are stapling the thing to the ground. Think of croquet wickets driven in too far.

I am planning to recreate the GSSF setup at home. Maybe some IDPA stuff as well. Going the cheap route. Paper targets instead of metal plates for now, and cardboard targets. Maybe not as fancy but it should do the same thing. Later I might invest in the metal to hear the "twang"!

PVFD304, Good holder, just cap off the bottom sections and fill them with sand so the wind won't blow it over. coyote3

My Dad and I have built stands out of both PVC and angled iron. Havnt used the one out of angled iron yet but it looks promising. Just need to find someone to weld it for cheap.
