I have 6 8inch steel plates that I use to practice plate runs with right now but they are knockovers and when I'm at the range it takes to long in between range hot/clear commands to make this a feasible way to practice. Does anyone know how to build a cheap plate rack that could be broken down and transported easily??? Is there one I could buy that fits this description??? How do you guys practice for the plates??? I have thought about just going to a cardboard mock-up. I have been practicing my time to first shot, transitions, and basic fundamentals and accuracy but I think my weakness will be my plate runs in Lexington. I have been able to keep my runs at 6 to 7 seconds and I know this will never do so I am trying to get myself into the 4-5 second range. Of course the "pros" go alot faster than that but for me a 5 second plate run would be a huge help towards the goals I have set for myself. I have shot faster runs but not with any consistency so I don't count them. Any help would be appreciated.
