We’ve Got You Covered
Whether your goal is to practise shooting up close and personal, longer distances, or anywhere in between, the Speed Stand 2 is a great solution. The base, with four points of contact on the ground, remains steadier on uneven terrain when compared with H-style stands. More versatility is the key when setting up to shoot in varying environments. The Speed Stand 2 has you covered.
Many shooting ranges are concerned (rightly so) with ricochets and stray bullets. Our Speed Stand 2 has a built-in downward angle which is crucial in providing safer spalling direction as well as minimizing bullets’ energy at the point of impact. For close range shooting this is especially relevant. Please refer to our safety sheet before shooting for instructions on safe target use.
We maintain the same bolt spacing on our AR500 gongs and 2/3 IDPA steel targets so users can shoot whichever style target they prefer. Swapping back and forth is as easy as two nuts & bolts. For information on both target options, please click the appropriate links: 9×9 AR500 Gong | 2/3 IDPA Target
How Do I Set This Up?
Step-by-step assembly instructions complete with images are included with the Speed Stand 2.
Assemble the 4 legs by laying them on the ground, long legs facing forward and short ones behind. Orient the feet towards the ground and line up legs so the holes match up. The legs will create an X shape when aligned correctly. Insert the two supplied bolts through the holes, passing through all the legs. Secure lock washer and nut, but keep loose.
Separate either side (left/right legs) to leave a gap in the centre for the lower hub. Tilt the lower hub backward (roughly 45 degrees) and slot between the left/right legs, back slot over rear bolt first, then tilt forward to slot in over the front bolt. Tighten bolts to secure assembly. Drop 2×4 wood post into lower hub (40-48″ length recommended).
Align target mounting plates back to back, insert bolts, lock washers and tighten nuts until flush with bolt ends. Separate plates and place over top of the 2×4 wood post. Tighten all four bolts securely (assembly will wedge in place if tilted, allowing you to pick up wrenches for full tightening). With assembly tight, you are now able to mount your target with supplied carriage bolts, lock washers and nuts.
† Wood not included.
†† Setups with vertical posts taller than 40″ are more prone to movement than shorter posts, especially when using higher caliber rounds and when using the heavier IDPA target. To keep movement to a minimum, maintain a lower overall target height as needed.
* Speed Stand 2 comes with lock washers which require wrenches to engage.
** Targets sold separately.
