Damage to target frames, uprights and crosspieces is not just an issue on the rifle range side of the house, it is an issue in the pistol bays as well.
In an attempt to reduce the damage to frames, a new target mounting system was installed Monday in pistol Bays 4 and 5. This mounting system spaces the cross pieces a lot further apart and gives a place to mount targets well away from the vertical upright posts.
The backer is a 7mm Coroplex sheet (corrugated plastic – like corrugated cardboard, only it’s plastic). This is the material we use for backers on the high power electronic targets and it is pretty durable stuff. There is room on the backer for several targets while keeping impact areas well away from the lumber.
Please read the instructions on the Coroplex, and good shooting!
