    And I would be happy to ship three targets in a box with no liner as long as you accept responsibility and the loss if they don't make it. I pack my stuff really well, but I still think it's a risk

    No matter how well it's packed if it doesn't make it USPS will not honor a loss claim. Their position? Well obviously it was not packed well enough because the box did not survive

    If I wanted a custom shape what are the limitations of detail? Does it use a computer to cut like a plotter?

    If enough people want that shape and it's not wasteful...... most likely

    Well that is kind of a loaded question. With my table thickness has a lot to do with the limitations of detail. Something cut in 1/4" can have much more detail than something cut in 1/2"

    What ever is cut has to be first generated either in CAD software or vector image program like Inkscape or Illustrator

    I have other options to cut as well. I have a local friend with a waterjet table, however its all about run time and will likely cost double or triple what it would cost for me to cut it. I can also do high def plasma or laser cut parts shipped out of Salt Lake.

    Here is a stencil I cut on my table out of 3/16" for my wife

    Awesome thanks. I'm an industrial design major at school and I am always looking for different ways to make prototypes. I could just email you the .ai file. I will let you know when I need something cut. I will let my teachers know too and maybe get you some more work.

    The one I loved was one night at work. Buyer of one of his gongs was showing a group shot with an AR 10 I think at like almost 500 yards. Nice group. Stomper of course commented "Pfffft, your 2 inches high and right". I started laughing and a co worker who was in the 101'st asked me what was so funny. When I showed him the comment said it was from a retired Marine he started laughing like hell too. Every time I see these mentioned now I keep thinking of that for some reason.

    MARINE??!! Why I outta.... :s0109:


    I was 8yrs Army, didn't retire... got smart and got out while I still had all my body parts!! Besides, you're only expected to live an average of 10yrs after retirement... you're pretty broke-down after 20+ continual years in the grunts.

    BTW- he WAS 2" high and right! :s0108:



    Anywho.... back on topic!
