Just a little something I threw together. Stand weighs guessing 200lbs, and the top is 8 bags of 80 pound sack-crete.

I think he was referring to the actual metal stand itself.

Yes, 8 dry bags would weigh 640 lbs, add water which will take 20 years or longer to fully cure, add in approx 200 pounds for the metal and you get [censored] heavy.

The fun part is going to be getting it out to the range area. Unless of course you just plan on opening the garage door.

Just opening the door would be nice, but no. I'll just use the front-end loader to set it on the trailer and drive across the road.

I don't think it's moving once you put it in place.
