One of my friends is starting out in match target shooting with a 22 match pistol.

Has anyone made or seen plans for a wood case to hold targets, scope, etc. for taget handguns?

I would like to design a case for him, but need something to use for as a starting point. Do not want to reinvent the wheel. I have some nice curly maple that I think would look great.

Look at the Gerstner cabinets. I am planning on doing the same type of thing and these were the inspiration for my design(?).

I think it’s gerstner.com but you may need to do a search.

I don’t have any plans, but the taaget shooters use a case that opend up to be a scope stand. Hope that helps yoiu know what to look for.

Great find, Topamax.

This is putting me on the right track and is the concept I think he is looking for. Even looks like the cover would have a area to store targets. Any idea of where I might find a picture on one?

That should give you a pretty good idea of what they look like. You sort of have to know the lingo to get there when googling ;-))

Fantastic this is a big help since I really do not know the lingo or much at all about handguns.

I go for simple things like shotguns.
