Does anyone use one of these? The range I shoot at has limited stand equipment for targets and wondered if this stand is anygood.They have a plastic card holder and a metal spike base to push into the ground with your foot. See them advertized in Midway and other co's.

I have one. If the ground is baked hard..like it is now...it'll be tough to get it deep enough to stand up. The best is a base of wood designed for removable uprights to staple cardboard onto. If the ground is level, all is good.

I saw a base for a target stand made from, I think it was 1" PVC pipe. It was made to resemble an "H" and had 1" slats for uprights. All the joints were dry fitted so it could be disassembled for transportation. The slats had to be trimmed some to fit into the upright pipes. You wouldn't have to worry about hard ground with this.

I have two or three of the full size ones that I use regularly, and one of the compact models that fits right in the trunk of my GoldWing. The lid from a box of computer paper makes a great target holder and I can get all I want at work. I usually use the Shoot-N-See targets with them.

I like them, they are cheap and pretty easy to setup. They'll take a number of hits from a 22 and still stay together, larger caliber hits will take them out pretty quick though. As Hardtarget noted, when the ground is hard, they are tough to get in the ground. I found I usually still can get them seated by moving them up on the berm just a little.
