Based on the scenarios outlined by the Action Shooting Committee, there will be targets that will line the sidewalls of the shooting bays.


This means that the Hesco walls must be able to absorb rounds. Concrete would not be a good choice for the walls.

Ok, good to know. Hesco walls seem to have steel mesh frames on them? Would that not be an issue?

Yeah I had not considered putting the targets on the walls. Yeah concrete blocks are probably not the best option for that then...

I should have written a better description.


The targets will be arranged in such a way that rounds could impact the sidewall of each shooting bay.


Not familiar with how the metal frames work. Several sites show various steel wire frameworks. I am leaving the determination of if it will be a problem to the people designing the range!

Think of a giant size sand bag with its shape held in place with chain link fence wire.

www.hesco.com and they go for about $50/foot plus dirt and backhoe time to fill. We think we will be using a double stack of a 7-foot high barrier under a 3.5-foot high barrier for an overall height of over 10 feet.

Which way are the 2x4 stands oriented? (narrow or wide wood facing shooter)
I need to know this before buying a plate holder for those lanes.
Narrow

The style of shooting involved in 3-gun and Action Shooting does involve off-angle shooting (not directly at the impact area). Dirt is the best side wall material. Before anyone asks, these barriers will get shot up after several thousands of rounds and "leak" but Hesco makes patches. These are the best options for us right now.

If they get shot up and leak, I would consider it a sign that they are well used, well loved, and people are having fun. Just like the railroad ties.

sorry to deviate from the action bay discussion but is there anything i'm missing in the rules that would prevent me from practicing PRS style positional and barricade shooting on the Barnes range?

i would be bringing something similar to this with me to the range.

Who did we hire to design the range and when will we see a drawing?

What will the design cost and what is the projected cost of the range?
