Fault line material

Recommended Posts

My club has used strapping for fault lines for years. Our ranges are grass or sand covered, sometimes its hard to tell if you are standing on the fault line or if you just earned a PE.

The rules say .75 in the minimum on hard packed surfaces they recommend 1.5 if you you are on grass or dirt.

What does your club use?

2x2 are so great. They exceed the requirements and last years and years. Drill a hole at each end and use those gigantic 8-12 inch long nails or spikes to hold them to ground. I wish all our clubs had crowbars or pickaxes to lift them out at teardown though.

In my opinion no. But the rules, as usual, leave it open for interpretation:

2.2.1.1 Shooting Boxes and Fault Lines should be constructed of
wooden boards or other suitable material, must be fixed firmly
in place, and provide both physical and visual references to
competitors. For hard ground surfaces clear of debris, 0.75
inch material is the minimum allowable size. On other range
surfaces, such as covered with turf, sand, gravel, wood chips or
similar, thicker material which rises at least 1.5 inches above
the surface is recommended.

Spruce 1x3 strapping.. It is actually just under 3/4" (.62"). X 2.5 wide. It is pretty flat but does run pretty straight and less prone to warpage than a 2x, oh, long lengths are a lot lighter also...

We use 2x2 also. What is strapping? The only requirement is .75, anything thicker is recommended to assist the shooters and ROs.

Right, was there a point there?
