    Dave,
    Thanks for putting this image up - the target holder system is simple, strong and takes less than five minutes to assemble. We also use old swing sets but this is simpler.

    Used to use 2"x4" wooden saw-horse setups but the fragments chew up the wood and imbed so you had to wear gloves or get cuts.

    I like to use the big hanging target for zeroing and smaller free-standing ones for knocking over (killing) - have a bunch of both. So far do not have any hard steel, you can see the bumps and divots but they are cheap and easily replaceable. We recently got some 3/4 and 1" targets, shoot them at 400 and make some nasty divots but no penetrations.

    Do not feel comfortable shooting at steel closer than 400 yards, plus the way we hang the steel the shrapnel goes downward, never have anything coming back.

    How adjustable are the legs? It looks like it might just be a little free play from the square peg in the round hole. Think this setup would work in hilly country?

    There is so much play between the angle iron legs and the four inch round pipe it fits into that you can accomodate any irregular ground. We can even lower the target to inches from the ground or have it up higher as in the picture by pushing the legs in or outward. Simple and strong and easy to make.
