What kind of Plate Rack is this?

Recommended Posts

So I did a few Falling Steel Matches and I come across this plate rack, it’s about 15 steel plates, of which they’re 5 to a row. I’m looking to get one for my home club, I just need the name, and yes I did try google lol

 

Thanks in Advance

You could reach out to Jim Richardson who runs Wallum Lake Walls of Steel in Rhode Island.  I think they make a lot of their own set ups but he might be able to point you in the right direction for any that they've purchased.

Nice thank you. The bad pic is from the PSA Shoot Out 2018. My local club here in PA is looking for ideas for Steel Targets. This was one of my favorites

That is a pretty cool plate rack. It looks like it would be great for an outlaw match. Not quite sure how it would work with rule(s) 1.2.1 though.

I’m assuming you’re talking about the 8 rounds per location/view?

 

All you have to do to make it legal is to have it available from more than one location or view. You can have more than 8 rounds available from a single location/view as long as you aren’t requiring the shooter to shoot it all from one spot.

Agreed. It just looks like it needs to be shot straight on. So I guess if it’s out in the open that counts for more than one spot.

 

How much of an angle can they be shot at?

shot a similar plate rack at a match and it had to be removed from the match. as a plate fell with force and with them being in tandem, plates would fall or pop back up when they obviously weren't supposed to.

Targets USA makes an inline plate rack using their Rhino plates.  It's showed up at a few matches around the country so far.  I have not shot one but am thinking of putting it into one of the tuesday night USPSA matches at Birchwood.

Many ranges disallow them because shooters go full-auto on the plates trying to get them all down and that causes lots of bullets skipping skyward...

 

Montrose put a roof over theirs the last few years of the Handgunner Shootoffs.

I have shot similar racks to the one pictured.  I believe that Rio Salado has a similar rack, do not think

it has as many plates.  But, either way it was fun to shoot and it worked fine.......
