Range help

Looking to build a handgun range in the "back 40". Anyone have a good source for info on building plinker/steel targets? I would also like to build something to hold clay birds. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Beentown

As a side note... One thing that we have been doing is taking an old tire and putting a piece of cardboard in it. We roll it down a slope and practice on moving targets. Hard but fun. Great fun with the shotgun and handgun.

Midway sells a target they call a Bird Board. It is basically a target backer board and plastic hooks to hang clay pigeons on.

A piece of J-channel with a spring loaded pin on the high side tied to a string leave the J-channel long stack clay pigons in it pull the string realeses a pigon and shoot it as it rolls down the channel. Different angles the birds roll faster.
