Would they allow you to make a target base of your own to bring with you? I've noticed very few target bases at the pistol range (other than the 25 yard rotating stands) and was wondering what happens when more people come to shoot (I'm new there and haven't seen many people yet).

If we were allowed to make our own bases would we also be able to make different target stands? I was thinking something simple like at Fort Dix, a single upright with the target stapled to it, the base could be half a 5 gallon bucket filled with concrete.

Any thoughts?

I'm not that familiar with teh pistol range bases, but I remember being warned during the safety orientation that if you build a frame, it had to be the proper dimensions. I've seen RO's pull non-standard frames from the 100 yard range.

The yellow safety rules and regulations that you get at the seminar states "Below is a variation of the frame that must be used on the Handgun, 100 yard, and rimfire ranges". They give a drawing with the dimensions: 72" tall minimum with a 24"x36" target area at the top.

Yeah, I built a target stand exactly to spec, but then when I went there I saw people's target stands made out of 2X4's and even 1X3's, so I'm not sure what to think.

My main concern is what to do when there are no more target bases left.
