Tools needed to build it!

Let's put it together. DO NOT use PVC glue!
SECTION ( A ) The Holders
Take the PVC and cut 2 sections 25 long. Take the 2 pieces of PVC and you will need to cut a section out of each pipe. Cut a slit ¾ wide, 23long down the PVC pipe or you can take the ¾ aluminum channel strip and screw it onto the pipe with some sheet metal screws. This will let you slide the Styrofoam into place, as shown in the drawing as Section ( A ). You will cut 3 pieces of Section ( D ) if you do it this way and you will need 2-90s or 90 degree fittings.
SECTION ( B ) The Tee fittings
Take the Tees and put them on each section as you cut them out. DO NOT use glue, you might have to replace a piece if you miss the target.
SECTION ( C ) The Legs
Take the PVC and cut 2 pieces 30 long. Mount 2 more tees on one end of each pipe
SECTION ( D ) The Center Piece
If plan to use a ¾ aluminum channel strip you will need to cut 2 pieces of this section out. Cut the PVC 22 long. If you did it the other way cut only one out 22 long.
SECTION ( E ) The Feet
Take the PVC and cut 4 pieces 27 long. Be sure to cut one end of the pipe with 45 degree angles, this way if you want to use Section ( E ) as Section ( C ) you can drive them into the ground. The long feet are to help hold the stand up from the things being shot at it.
SECTION ( F ) The Styrofoam Target holder
Take the piece of ¾ Styrofoam and cut it to fit into Section ( A ) now you are ready to put your target on it and shoot. Use thumbtacks to hold you paper target on the Styrofoam
