Here is the first of the 6 I'm making. All that's left is plasma cutting the holes in the other 5 plates, and painting. I am looking forward to trying them out this weekend. They are currently 3/8 mild steel. It looked good against lead bullets. I haven't yet tried jacketed pistol rounds yet. Now I need to save for a sheet of 3/8 armor plate. So I can use it with the AR.

You know, a little photoshopping could turn that into one nasty pop-up.... good thing no one would do that on this board.

The one that's painted has been shot and calibrated with 9mm minor. I can get a good double tap with the hkusp 45 while it's falling. The only part that sucks is having to walk down range and reset them after they are shot. I need a big spring!!!

Go to your local junk yard and get an old spring out of one of the older leaf spring type trucks or cars(5.00 or ten bucks) weild it in place and try to get the angle right so not too many richocettes ninty degrees up,and none back! .45 acps have a funny way of comming back to haunt you! Nice rig! Bob [:D]
