must say , I'm disappointed. the gun holder has plastic cover on each end that was coming off as I opened the package .No sign it was ever glued to the metal . and the U bolt that holds the gun down has 2 wing nuts to tighten....IE ; lost the first day .The stand itself is taller than expected so no feedback until after training this weekend . But no holding blind I have ever seen will hide this stand The double stake to hold in the ground is large and that is a good thing . The upright pole is hollow pipe, not like solid metal poles I am used to.Which means it could get bent easier than a solid rod IMO .
