Meanwhile, In Switzerland . . .

Punch this into "Google Earth"'s search box, then go to "street view" (Drag & drop the little orange guy onto Rt 11) & you can virtually drive through the firing lines.

Shamu, regarding your original reply. What diameter are the pipes used at your local range?

I haven't actually measured them but I'm guessing about 20". There's a 24 " & a 30" but the price climbs sharply.
20' long seems to be the standard so you'd probably get a set of 3 with adequate length buy  cutting. (Again guessing from the pics @ about 6' long each?)

Thanks for confirming that Shamu, I suspected it was around 20". 
That is good news; it is available in France in 6 metre lengths.
I may be able to make something similar because at work we have loads of old tyres that are from 19" and  20" wheels; so if lined up to make a 10 foot tube; it may be a good alternative. Free tyres for the club and clearing out the space at the workshop!

I have seen the tube made from old tires used at one range that I visited. It worked well.

Yes! tires somehow held together on a frame should work well.
A pair of "rails" at the bottom, to stop them rolling away & a third longeron over the top, the ends could just be 2X4 square frames connecting to the ends of the longerons.
