Default New portable range stand

I have always been tired of having to use multiple stands for my steel plates when going shooting. I wanted something portable, yet sturdy to be able to shoot at. A few weeks ago, I finally built my perfect stand.






What it is, is your typical 2x4 target base and stand. I used a THICK 5' piece of uni-strut and hung it from the verticals with a simple lag hook. The plates hang via "S" hooks through the uni-strut.
It held up incredibly well. I had a buddy shoot (2) 10mm rounds into the cross bar and it just dented it.
When taken apart, it's just the 5' piece of uni-stut, (2) 5' verticals and the 2 bases. Pretty portable.
