Building Targets

Building targets, getting ready for the spring shooting season.  Went out looking for material to make light boxes.  Who knew that they make something called 6" channel.  This stuff looks like it will be the cat's meow.  It's steel, so the magnets will stick to it and it can be welded conventionally with a MIG welder.

It comes in 20' joints and I didn't have my truck, but the honcho at the steel place is a reserve deputy, and I told him I'd bring the truck to work on Thursday and pick up a joint.  He's going to cut it in half so that I can transport it in the pickup.

Once I get the metal to my son't shop, we'll start building targets.

And, that's about all I accomplished today.  Other than work.
