I had some leftover peices of landscaping timbers, 2x4s, an old door my wife was throwing away and some carpet a neighbor was throwing out and turned it into a tagret holder/backstop. Cheap is good @ my house. [archer2]

Really similar to what I have in mind after some other threads here on targets and backstops. I like the "roof" idea and that's a good way to layer the carpet. I have the odd "flyer" though that needs a bit more backstop size. Perhaps NO backstop would focus a fellow more.... Nice work.

I really like the way you ran the carpet, one of the best ways to stop a miss out there!

Well done!
