    You have to buy four pack instead of one, but it looks like you can get them ship to Kalamazoo. I would buy four anyways, if you go to the time to build one.

    Seriously some nice pictures – Particular i like the one with your gun at the table with the chronograph and the mobile target station in the back – I just need an adress and i will be there in a jiffy with a Cafe Latte :)

    Jokes aside – Nice setup

    PS: Like you have a hugget on the gun :)

    I just recently bought the horse stall mat from farm and fleet  3/4 thick  4 by 6  made 2 20 by20  works great   
    My local Aigun store says that the above has caused them ricochets, they use ductseal now with no issues 

    Just a heads up

     

    anyone else noticing this?

    I've been thinking about how to build a quiet, larger, and easy to service target. I also wanted it to be portable to mow under and move to different yardage. So what I wanted to do was make it portable and serviceable. When the target is tipped down it acts as a wheelbarrow of sort. This also makes it parallel to the ground to lift off the top to add without spilling rubber mulch. Perhaps overkill but I placed a steel plate it the back that would stop any pellet that made it though the rubber mulch. I wanted it to stand off so it would dent and not punch against the wood. For the inset edge that I attach the face, I used inserts that will have wing bolts screwed into. On the top I added a handle to aid in tipping it upright. I also added a long eye bolt to attach a wind ribbon. The background shows a set of wheels turned inward to protect them from stray pellets. For the face of the target I used a 2'X2' rubber outdoor tile. As you can see the wing bolts can be used to attach it. I have a wingnut driver for my drill that makes quick work of it. I'm am pleased with the results. Just using thumb tacks to hold the targets. It is very easy to roll to the correct yardage. I just drive tent pegs into the ground to keep my correct yardage. The tile used on the face is almost self healing. Very impressed how well it holds up. From the picture above It was shot with a .25 (right) vs. .22 (left) at 50 yards. All in all it works well for what I'm doing. I want to say, I spent about a $100 on the project. The rubber mulch was a little spendy at 3X $10.00.  

    This looks perfect for what I need. How deep is your mulch to stop a .25 Wildcat from day 50 and 100 feet? As that’s what I need

     

    great set up

    I have five inches in there. When opened the pellets are all sitting near the surface.
