I have also see them hard to put in the ground when the ground is frozen. None of those problems exist with me.

I built 2 stands out of PVC approx. 24 in wide and 6ft tall

I filled the whole thing with the spray expanding foam because a bullet will break regular pvc, but just knock pieces off the pipe if it hits.

22lr goes right through, unlike if it was plain pipe it would shatter the pipe

[QUOTE=Possumal;59152]I know what you mean, Weasel. It is also relatively easy to build a nice portable benchrest. Lowe's and other stores of that type sell the folding legs and you can cut out a piece of plywood to the size you need. I also covered mine with rubber to make it non skid, and it is dandy to setup real quick and do some serious shooting

Great idea for a target stand ,i will build one as soon as the weather warms a little - 17 here this morning, as for the shooting bench Rugged Buddy is the name of the folding table legs works really well . Complete mine weighs 21 lbs

This design could be modified into a nice field shooting rest as well.
