    Have shot more rounds with a pistol in the last 3 weekends than probably the last 50 years.

    That’s a lot of shooting.

    Not really, I’ve just never been that much of a pistol shooter before.

    Overall the dueling tree has taken somewhere in the neighborhood of 1600 rounds of .22 rimfire, with not a single blemish in the steel. (Been repainted 4 times so far though). 🙂
    Think it is about time to get some AR500 plates for larger caliber plinking fun.

    Wow , how far away from the targets are you approximately , and what’s the thickness of the plates again , I assume you have it set up in the field someplace when in use.

    I always enjoyed doing this with my Dad at the gun range when I was younger. Miss going to the gun range.

    With pistols we are about 10 yards away. The plates in use now are 1/4″ thick, and yes – we take the tree out to a local spot set up for activities like this.

    Agreed, we are kind of turning this into a ‘family and friends’ weekend activity. 🙂

    Wow , that’s pretty cool , if I was trying to hit them , they’d still be new lol
    I doubt I’d even hit one lol
    Sounds like you are really enjoying them 👌👍 that’s a decent thickness for sure.

    @boschmanbrian, I’m thinking about the 3/8″ plates for this tree as I am not sure that 1/2″ plates would flip from one side to the other very well when hit.
    I have an idea on using thick wall tubing as the pivot point for the plates rather than the two welded in tabs with a hole drilled in the center.
    That’s the nice thing about building your own, having the option to change things up as you have new ideas. 🙂
