Duct tape?

Thats what we use, with a bright color. We'll run a broom over the shooting areas to help it stick

Flatland Shooter put up some photos of the Saddle River Range indoor layouts here:

 

 

We use metal stands with wood uprights, duct tape, and 1x2s for shooting boxes and fault lines. Works pretty well.

Hope this helps.

That would be me. Hope life is treating you well!

Still riding, and just started shooting a little USPSA-like stuff at the local range, LOTS of fun. Helen says hello!

indoor match I went too had duct tape on some stages and then a metal start box duct taped down on 2 of the 4 sides. It was angle iron with the "legs" of the angle touching the ground, if you follow me.

We have been running a match every week for the past year in an indoor range.  Also USPSA.  We have 2 bays, each 19' wide.  If you want some stages.... we have a ton.  We built walls out of black netting and a very light wood to make moving them and setting up easy.  We have 3'x3' shooting boxes, that we outline in chalk when we put them down.  Also have a few of the Newbold poppers cause we can not use the steel indoors.  Let me know, I've got 100+ stages.

Gorilla brand duct tape, while expensive, is really good at anchoring down raised fault lines. We usually use 2-3 strips for every 5-6 foot stick (targets sticks serve double duty). For fixed size shooting boxes, we use PVC piping and joints which are getting pretty beat up, although they have been in use for 3+ years.

We have been using painters tape because the range does not want the tape left over and some other tapes seem to break apart.

We use 2x2's with sandbags at the ends/joints. Helps to have some of the 2x2's fitted with folding hinges for the corners of likely shooting positions.

I think that ATLDAVE and I shoot at the same indoor match.

 

lIke he said. They are also painted orange so shooters can see them. We also use 2x2 and plastic fencing to create walls that are attached with spring clamps to the target rails. 

there is another range I shoot at that uses 4x8 sheets of core-gated plastic with bungee cords to hang them from the target rails.

I’ll bet you have a little cart to transport the sand bags back to the storage area too! 

 

I think ive pushed that cart a time or two.

On poppers you can cut some carpet pieces to be about 2" thick and duct tape the heck out of it.

Video of the 2018 WIIT (Winter Indoor IPSC Tournament) this past weekend. They use lots of 2x2s for fault lines that are just tapes down with duct tape or gorilla tape. They also have 11 tall portable traps and 2 low portable traps that are used for off angle or low shots over 3 indoor bays. This isn't doable everywhere but it opens up the options significantly for stage design. The portables are a AR500 box that is lined with ballistic rubber and topped with plywood. They are emptied out every few months. Plywood is used to shield the concrete from repeated fraging from poppers.

The Machine Gun Nest in Maryland seems to be pretty popular for indoor stages. You may want to look for footage from them.

Duct tape for our "practice sessions" (which USPSA in now making us send in activity fees) but when it comes to regular matches we'll tapcon them in if needed.

I wish our local indoor range had traps for targets. All of our indoor stages have targets completely downrange and straight. No angled targets because they don't want someone to shoot one of the walls that is the side of the building. If you do shoot the wall its a instant DQ.

Those are matches. You guys just go away with it for years. Just because you dont have a classifier doesn't mean its not a USPSA match. You use their rules and their name... you owe em money. Simple as that.

Thank you for the insight.  That clears things up.

Don't know how clear this picture is but we use a flexible tubing and fasten it with fasteners to the wood base of targets and barricades.

And another.  The thing is that you can make them as long as you want and they're flexible.
