Hanging targets, need ideas

I am going to be building a structure to hang siluete targets and other types of shooting targets off of. Does any one have one already. Interested to see ideas.

I do, but it's hard to describe... I'll see if I can remember to take pics tonight, and I'll post up tonight or tomorrow. I made it with scrap pressure-treated wood from when I built my porch. Couple years old now and full of holes... but works like a charm, sturdy, and is about 5.5' tall.... perfect for "realistic" targets. Just replace the center with cardboard and use a staple gun or tacks to attach everything.

Either way, definately use wood.

This is what we use when we go shoot long range. My buddy made a few of these. They work great. Just have to paint the circle white or orange. Something that stands out. Also have different size circles, squares and rectangles for it.
The only thing that sucks about it it the weight. It's one heavy mother! And I have the small one.

Good ideas. I am kinda leaning more towards something that I can hang full torso's from. Probable 5 or 6 feet tall.

at the Departments range we use 4x4 or 4x6 posts and run 2 lines from one to the other, one up high and one down low and use those metal clips that are similar to clothes hangers to hold the silouette targets in place on the lines....nothing fancy but it's taxpayer dollars...cheap/easy to fix, it is the same range they send the cadets from the academy to and not everyone can shoot/aim
