pretty good, try making the base more stable, but other than that 4*s man =D

ann, its ok but i would not use something like this for the DD-27. the targets would shatter, and possibly break the pieces. i am going to just stick to cardboard. but not that bad, 3.5/5

To be honest with you, I did not get the promised power from that gun. I got like 40 feet, not 80-90.

well, other targets similar to this dont break when i shooth them with the DD-27.

dsman195276 (author)apples!!!!!2008-05-27

some times if you hit it with a really powerful gun at close range thn the targets will break but the pieces dont shatter.

Pretty Good! You might want to try to beef up the stand a bit, as it might fall over, but overall, 4 out of 5 !

Lol, tape it to the ground!

I_am_Canadian (author)hellpilot2008-05-27

That would work :-p

I know that it looks flimsy but it is sturdy enough once you build it.
