: Ok you will need to contact your CPFO for regulations in your area concerning the use of metal targets and the addition / change of use for the range. Remeber you need to submit plans before any work is done. In the new year I could send you digila pics ofour range and what was required( this is frustrating because no range is the same and the inspectors were very inconsistant applying the regulations to any given range...Some ranges can't speak highly enough of the CPFO and its inspectors ...while clubs in our area have a differing opinion)
: Basically whenever metalic targets, or any target where the projectile could riccochet off the target or the ground, are used, they must be placed in a manner such that no aimed projectile can srike the ground of the range, nor can it fly off the range.
: This basically means that all mettalic targets must be placed in a bunker with a sufficient backstop to prevent the above. We used an earthen backstop and a small enclosure constructed of railroad ties to contain any riccochet or bullet splatter
: For Target and rules info do an internet search for International metalic silhouette. ...
