...for leaving behind this piece of workout equipment that started collecting dust about a week after she bought it, SEVEN YEARS AGO!
Makes for a great portable target stand!

@ mikee booshay: just use old family pics, cut yourself out, use her image, and have a printer blow it up and make targets. heck, kinkos can do it.

At least you found something when you came home. I walked in after my first wife left and found the house, bank accounts, and anything not nailed down gone.

Ha! Same here. Ex-wife hated guns, didn't want them in the house. Now that she's gone my friends call me Tackleberry, LOL! Man I forgot what freedom was like...just got rid of a girl cuz she was asking when I wanted to meet her parents...that was my cue!

Re: I'd like to thank my ex-wife...

I suggest you put bolts trough the target plate and attach wire rope to the bolts on the backside of the plate. Splatter from bullets might eat through the rope wire, depending on shooting distance etc.

You can even put some washers to the bolts on the front, to act as sacrificial material (protect the shank of the bolt).

Re: I'd like to thank my ex-wife...

Thats hilarious! My ex-wife left the same dusty piece of exercise equipment when she left. I don't even remember what I did with it, but I'm sure it wasn't as creative as your solution.
