Cool goong man! That will be sweet when you start pinging away on those bad boys!! Ian and GG both gave some great suggestions I will have to remember those when I build one!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Ian, I live near Dallas...actually about 30 miles East. We have had some great weather but as soon as I am ready to shoot at distance, the wind gets going.

Ditto what Ian said about the higher quality paint, and just using white. I like the "S" hook and chain too, wire works just as well though and is what I use. Wire or "S" hooks should piece it back together when you get to that stage. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Welding some big nuts on the back of the plates gives a good loop to run the "S" hooks or wire through, and they stay protected...

Re: Built a GOOOONG!!!!

Nice looking set up. I will have to see if I can post mine when I get it done. Lots of good advice for the final putting together. I'm still in the aquire stage. Got most of the stuff I need and will be putting it together soon.

Let us know how it works. I'd bet about a 10 (1-10)on the fun scale.
