Thanks Scratch, I wonder if a AK would make them run instead of walk

There is a Paintball range that might be interested in these. Thanks for the ideas and the file.
The paintballs might not knock them over, but the range could sell a lot of ammo and CO2 letting them try! 8-)

I'm curious how much these are selling for in different parts of the country.

I have some 1/2" 500. I will stretch the slots for the half inch. I'll let you know how a 7.62 works on it.

There is a guy on Ebay selling them for 20 bucks, welded and painted. You also gotta pay the shipping. There's also a guy on Pirate selling them, but I never found out how much he want's for them.

I did some research last night on different target companies and materials, etc. One guy has a patent pending on a walker that is similar in concept, but quite a bit different in design. I don't know if any of you priced out AR500 steel, but all I can say is holy sh!t...guess it's A36 for me.

I cut some walkers out today, welded them up and took them to the neighborhood poker game. A couple of the guys were interested in some. I used 1/8" steel, thinking it would be good for a pellet gun, but it's too heavy. I should have used 14 ga. or something.

I made one from 16 gauge and a .22 short "walked" it but just a couple of shots on the same side bent it slightly, especially a hit in the neck. 16ga probably would be good for pellet guns too.

I have some interest in people wanting to buy some of these, but I am a little nervous about liability. Is anyone else a little nervous about things like this? :?:

Make a display that describes them as yard art or dog-chain keeper.

What they do with it once it's theirs is not your concern.

All I have got to say is I wish I thought of this!! It is such a great idea, and a simple design. I have already sold 3 of them in one week! This site is awesome, thanks everyone.

That's an understatement! Just understand that the trailer park is for adults and don't post ANYTHING that you are not 100% sure about because someone will call you out on it.

Jumping JACKS...you decide how to make them JUMP... I have worked all day on installing an new updated THC interface and PCI card--Thanks ShopSabre--and can't wait till the morning to cut em out, stick em up and shoot em down...I thought of enlarging & making some distinctive ends silhouettes with some AR 5/8 plate I have since the smallest caliber I own is a .223 WSSM...I was thinking of naming each: the Oblamo, the Expolosie, the dirty Harry and the E-Manual...my bad...the IRS is knocking at the door...gotta go
