    Here's a video of a set of dueling trees a buddy and I built. Lots of trial and error and testing;) but we think we've got it. We built this one with 3/8" mild steel not ar and have shot 1000+ rounds with no damage. We know it will handle .380-.45acp. We used mild steel just to keep cost down we do have ar steel but others use that and are very expensive. Let me know what you think.

  2. I've got a tree from Action Target. Insane fun and great training tool. They do tend cause a person to expend an *** load of ammo haha.
     

  3. That makes a great target, looks like fun. And yes, a good way to expend a bunch of ammo, also good practice for changing point of aim.

    We are talking with a few different metal companies locally to see if we can get a better price on metal and then I will post a new thread and then I'll post up a new thread with pricing. We also have a rimfire set I'll post a video of that too. Shipping is my concern they do weigh a bit!

    Dueling trees are way fun. I got a buddy who among other things has two of them. Once a year he puts on his own match and has a man on man stage that uses both of them. If you get to shooters with about the same ability its fun, but if you get someone who is slow and one who is fast it gets painful to watch.

    Here's a rimfire version no difference other than lighter steel used in paddles.
