Re: Built a GOOOONG!!!!
Looks sweet, almost too sweet. Do you want some advice?
Chain is great, but when (not if) you hit it with a stray bullet, it is not easily repaired in the field, unless you can tie a hell of a knot. Bailing wire is cheap, and when (not if) you hit it, just loop it back together and keep shooting.
Also, those nice welded loops that hook the chain to the gong will eventually get shrapnelled to death unless they are behind the face of the gong. And even there, they could still be shot off. If you have small holes cut in the gong, then you can just tie bailing wire through the hole and if the knot gets hit, just loop it around through the hole again.
I only mention these things so that it will help you. Interupting a good "gong" session for gong repair sucks. I know from experience! You're out there trying to jerry-rig something while all your buddies are waiting for mister 10 thumbs to fix the target!
If it's not far, it's boring.
