Falarak hooked me up with a local guy that did some for him.

His website is handgunsports.com It's a 2 man operation, but this guy is dedicated to customer satisfaction. We went back and forth many times to make sure I got what I wanted and would not be dissapointed in the final product.

A little pricy on the stands, but I had to pay for the R&D on them. Total for both was ~$260. The plates alone are like $50

How many rounds do you think until you nail one of the chains and watch the plate fall off ?

No biggie, easy to fix. But the face you will make when you see the plate move in no way that you have ever seen before is a classic. Wish I could be there to see it when it happens, funny stuff.

Will probably be along the lines of crap, now I've got to walk all the way out there and change out the chain.

Cool. What distance are you planning to shoot them from, and with what?

I've shot 400 brindle steel with 308 at 30yds and only barely made dents. So I sould think this could handle at least .338 laupa at 100dys <shrug>.

The biggest I'll shoot at them is 308. Since I had them made with a slight rearward deflection, I'm hoping for at least a 50yd close range but will shoot them at 200 and 300 yds with .223 & 308. A lot closer with pistol. Ill just have to play with it a while.

What is this "Tom Bean" you speak of?

I'm really, really jealous dude!

I love shooting steel.
