    I'd build it, but I'd have to disassemble my gun.

    odd how does it "self right" if it even does that

    how does that make it self righting if you have to pull the string... but any ways thanks for this, it gave me a really great base idea for a moving self reseting target thing

    Umm, no. Not any time soon.... But I can explain it. Put the two yellow rods planted in the ground, with the red rod facing you. Shoot the yellows. Pull string. Shoot the yellows. etc. etc.

    pretty good target :) lol nice song

    its not self righting however if you add just enough weight to the top so it tips at an angle but dosent fall over

    if you replace the strink with rubber band and just lay it there pu a blue rod and stand in fropnt tie rubber band to that, you get a se3lf righting one.

    I know that. I probably should change it...

    technically its not self righting if you have to pull a string to do it. It's a semi-self righting (is there such a thing)

    About 2 feet longer than the distance between you and the target.

    Ty! Maybe somebody else can, because I am not allowed to posdt vids on youtube >: (
