target stand

I built this today for shooting my new wicked ridge warrior crossbow. By no means original to me.
2 10 ft, 2" schedule 40 pvc cut into 4 2ft pcs, 2- 3.5ft pieces for uprights and 1- 3ft piece for crossbar. Two T's and 2 elbows plus hdwe., I think it was around $37.00 total. Works great, holds target well with no sag and you can leave the crossbar unglued for easy takedown, in fact I left mine all unglued and it was no problem. In case you are wondering the hardware in the center of the crossbar is for when I get my Rinehart 18-1 target for broadheads.

Re: target stand

That is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. How does the hurricane hold up?

Re: target stand

Going to build this tonight! I was shooting my hurricane bag and my first two arrows went through and lodged in my shed.

Re: target stand

It's ok, no passthroughs and none buried to the fletching, I shot about 15 to 20 times today, so it hasn't been enough time to really say how it will hold up. This target is for field points only..

Was the bag hanging? That can make a difference in penetration..

Re: target stand

It wasn't hanging, but it is now!!! I think I'm gonna cement some of the joints together, however, as my bag is now kind of damp and heavy. Shouldn't leave it out in the rain, I guess.

Re: target stand

I built mine today, I glued all the joints except the top vertical connections, makes it easy to store/transport by simply tapping off the horizontal pipe & 90's.
Thanks for sharing.
