Upgrade to 100 yard Swinger Stand

posted Oct 4, 2015, 7:38 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.
If you have visited the range recently, you may have noticed the new swinger stand out at the 100 yard distance. Jeff Niemuth, our resident welding and fabrication wizard, designed and constructed the new stand using primarily ar500 steel which should withstand the thousands of bullet impacts much better than its predecessor. Over time, we also are planning to replace the mild steel swingers themselves with ar500 swingers. The ar500 material rings nicely when hit by projectiles, is very reactive because of the lighter weight design and is safer too because the face of the swinger doesn't get cratered the way mild steel does. It is an all-around win for our members who enjoy shooting the gongs/swingers.
