So over the long weekend, I spend sometime down @ a lake cabin and as a true paintball addict, I took a “few” of my markers to play with. While there, I used to standard targets, such as trees and rocks, not to exciting. After a trip into town and a little brainstorming, I came up with a new target range. At a bargain store, I found 9” aluminum pie plates, these plates are almost the same size as a pair of goggles or a mask.
So for this recipe I took two pie plates, a simple garden stake, and a single 8x1” screw. With the plates doubled up on the top of the stakes and the stakes cut at different heights, I had a great shooting range setup. With these targets setup I was able to work on all kinds of different drills. Standing, kneeling and prone firing positions as well as moving right to left and then left to right. All of this practice came from a simple setup that took all of ten minutes to create.
So here is an example of what I was trying to make, sadly after a full weekend of bulls eyes the pie plates were hardly recognizable, so we will have to visualize what I had from this image. So I hope this gets your creative juices flowing and you get a chance to give something like this a try.
