DIY Arcade/Shooting Gallery
« on: February 25, 2022, 10:41:30 AM »
Ladies and Gents, I’m interested in plans and outcomes for building a moving target gallery for a small group shooting at about 10 meters…actuators, motors, auto resets, etc. I’ve not yet been successful finding a how-to, hence this post. Thanks for the feedback.

Alternative to going to Walmart in store ( delivery not offered for me), amazon, at a better price, and even free shippingwith Prime members:

Ronan.... a tip.
Drill a small hole in the base of those to attach a fishing leader. That way you can tether them so you don't have to play hide and seek with them....  ;)

My set came with a hole pre-drilled.
Used a piece of twine and tied the other end to a steel washer I had painted Flouro orange.
