As much as we love shooting steel, paper targets will always have their place on the range. These stake pockets will support 1x2's or lathe securely and won't blow down in the wind!
Love these stakes; such a simple idea, and it works very well. The big advantage to this style over other "add lumber" target frames are that these will accommodate any size target you want to make. Be mindful of the lumber you choose, though--cheap 1x2's can easily break during assembly if they're given too much force.
I bought 6 for a portable airgun range. I need to know trajectory and staking then into desert soil is good. They're long enough so they can hold a stake and cardboard target.
I'll be buying a rimfire target in the future.
This is good for the price
Basic 1x2 stick pockets. Very sharp, solid spike gets into the ground easily. I would advise not to hit it too hard with a hammer, as it will ding up the steel a bit, especially on the thinner parts, but it holds up and should be fine either way. Obviously won't turn when inside ground, so bring a straight edge tool to help you align
Heavy, solid pieces. Recommended for any outdoor shooting. Easy uproot with a hammer.
Took these on our desert trip this weekend. 8-10 constant winds with intermittent 15’s. These held tough in the hard desert ground. The thumb screws are a GREAT idea. No tools need but a rubber mallet and staple gun. My buddy has a home made pvc stand and is going to order these after watching me set up. Brad has his stuff dialed in here!!
