In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I usually staple paper targets to a piece of plywood, cardboard, or my favorite, pegboard (no splinters, lasts forever.)

You could take your saw and cut some slots on the uprights and slip cardboard in there for a reusable stand.

I also welded up a metal flippy target, just some little circles cut out of 1/4" plate work perfectly for just about any pistol caliber.

I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
The only thing I would change is putting a cross bar where the bottom of the target or cardboard backing would be.
