      can you post some pics on how you reset the target?
      I read above about pulling a rope to reset it, but have you thought about making one where there is a plate you shoot to reset it.

        On Yuotube do a search for Flrwizler that should bring up my steel target videos.

            Frank good idea. I watched it on youtube and like it. I am thinking so bare with me. What if you had a spring on the handle instead of the rope. And the last target, when you shot it would trip the spring and pop all of them up. Maybe use a trampling spring. That might be a little easier than pulling the rope each time. It would be an auto reset.

              how would you reset the spring after each reset?? if you pulled the spring taught so it could reset after the last shot, when it reset the targets the spring would need to be re-sprung before it could reset again.

              with a 22 i don't think you would have enough force to reset the spring.

                I am guessing that it would be easier to make it where the targets hung down from the top and when you shoot them, they swing up and lock in place. then when you shot the last target, it allows them to drop back down so you can shoot them all again.

                The other way would be fairly hard to do once I thought about it, but not impossible.

                  i made one with a rabbit on top and a counter wait on the bottom so it would stand back up again on its own when shot with a 22. or spin when shot with a 12 Gage, spin like crazy when shot over and over with a 12 gage. also made a bird in flight for spinning.

                    Ar500

                    I made some steel targets out of 3/8 AR500 over the weekend, just wondering if anyone knows how far away I would need to be with an AR-15, or if the AR500 is hard enough that it can handle being shot at by an AR-15?
