    Transporting steel targets

    Does anybody have any clever solutions for getting their steel targets to and from the range? A case that would make for easy storage?

    I haul my stuff around in an enclosed trailer. I put 2/3 IPSC targets in a milk crate with partition I made in it. I have a couple other milk crates purposed for plates, but not as slick as the one for the torso plates. Of course the crates also work in the back of a pickup or van - make sure you strap them down, especially in the van.

    A bigger storage problem for me was all the bases.

    I just use a beach cart when i take my stuff to the range or my uncles. it supports 265lbswhich covers what i need. its nice because it folds up compactly in my car

    If you have a truck and space isn't a big concern something like this would work well i would think. Up to 1k pounds. Other versions available

    I used to just lay them on an old surplus para trooper jump bag thingy. I was super heavy canvas. I could slide them to the back of the pick up bed for off loading.

    I was trying to find a crate or box or something similar.

    I think I need something bigger than a milk crate, I know they make larger sizes, maybe if I could measure one.

    How big are the metal targets you are wanting to tote?

    I use a two wheel hand cart on smoothish surfaces, take the plates out of the crate and lay them on the cart.

    Its all I can do to move the milk crate with 6 ipsc plates in it, I sure the heck ain't toting it around. If the ground is uneven I tote them two at a time by hand.

    Not that big. They are reduced size with stands and I only have 2 right now. I was thinking a Rubbermaid type crate, but I can’t find one sturdy enough

    This is a great duty 19"x44" poly box. Should be more solid than Rubbermaid. It's at tractor supply could probably check out in person

    I originally didn't read op that well. Thought you wanted something to move them around at the range. Cart is great for that

    At my normal place I just drive the truck down and unload.
