    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.

    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.

    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.
