Just trying these Laststands brackets , hangers and 12mm rebar as an option to more cumbersome scaffold tubing for steels on Salisbury plain. The weight of the IPSC sees to be within its capacity and I will shoot it at very close range (100 yards) to check that it does not fall over under fire. I have literally kicked it hard to try and destabilise it and it just jiggles and resettles......may be different under fire. The rebar packs neatly into a pvc drain tube and the setup takes about 1 minute.
Family commitments are going to mean that I will miss the Salisbury shot on Saturday but I will test it with live fire and get it to Rich H in time for the next shoot.
I had to buy 4 sets of brackets to make the postage per item acceptable so I hope it works in the real world!
Shot the IPSC mounted on Laststands and Rebar......140g Berger doing 2900+ out of a 260 rem at 100 yards (fairly point-bank to get tons of energy into the stand to see if it toppled).....barely twitches the stand and makes a very satisfying boing!
I guess the rebar won't take a direct hit like scaff tube might But its a bloody site smaller x-section so harder to clobber.
These are definitely an option to scaff given the rebar fits easily into a plastic drainage tube and the brackets weigh nothing.
REALLY easy setup and rake-down.
Have a go at them next time at Salsbury.
I have a MP4 video of the shots but its 60 something megs and I have no idea how to post it.
