Silhouette Range Design and Construction

Post by 38-72 » Fri Oct 30, 2020 12:20 pm

I’ve been asked for input for constructing a silhouette range at the local gun club. I’ve shot BPCR for several years at a hand full of ranges, but have not been involved with the range design or layout.

While the NRA rule book gives some guidance, are there other considerations that should be thought about in the design and construction stages? So, if you all could list some “do’s and don’ts” it would be appreciated.
