    JBinMN replied to a thread Khe Sanh in Our Town
    I did not take part, but it is a part of USMC history. It is/was taught in boot camp as one of the battles that is to be remembered as a representation of the USMC , "Do, or Die!" attitude during the VN era. The NVA wanted another "Dien Bien Phu",...

    Looks good! :) Heavy? Yep, looks like it. That is why I downsized to 18" cubed.... So I can lift it without help. ;) Looks to me like you could lift the sand "box" out & that might help a bit with the rest when moving though. Glad to see...

    We shake ours up when we change targets by tipping on its sides a few times. So, I reckon "my" experience(s) with these, is not the same as yours... And when the steel plates are in there with the 2x "backer" between it & the front, the...

    BTW, I "downsized" from a 18x18x 24" deep due to the weight & awkwardness when lifting the box. & BTW, that steel is best placed in the box after you set up the box. to save lifting weight in one lift & that is also the reason for the lightweight...
