I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen guys stapling targets to this flimsy, make shift target carrier that always seems to fall apart after being shot or just blown around by the wind. Then there are the guys who need to bring all of their power tools and build a target carrier that is so over built that it could be later outfitted as some sort of medieval trebuchet. Either way, both of those guys spent an excessive amount of time building or repairing their Target Carrier when they should have been shooting.
Nobody knows this scenario better than Rob of TacStrike. Rob has been a very well known instructor for years now and also builds some of the best steel targets and target carriers on the market. Today Rob is introducing a new product that is so simple yet so smart. You’ll never need to build a target carrier again.
Rob’s new target carrier design utilizes 3 pieces of square steel tubing that is welded together to create each leg of the target base. You simply rip a 2×4 in half, cut the two “feet” to the length you want them, cut the center post to the length you need to accommodate the target you will be shooting and then insert the uprights and you’re ready to shoot. All of the pieces are held in place using thumb screws so you don’t need any tools to assemble or disassemble the carrier.
This new target carrier is also adaptable in that it can change to accommodate any size target you want to attach to the uprights by simply adjusting the width of the center post. Another thing to note is that if its windy out that day, you can cut the “feet” of the carrier a bit longer to make it harder to blow over.
One of the best parts about a super simple design is that it usually comes with a super simple price tag. TacStrike will be selling these as a pair for $21.95 plus $6 shipping anywhere in the lower 48. Now that is an affordable modular target carrier. Check them out now at www.TacStrike.com.
